Well, sometimes it reduces and eases the pressure pulses from the pipe. Gives a more consistant tuning.

For the moment, I thought you disagreed he looked like Mark Green and looked more like Massimo Fantini.

A lot of people have premature failures with the microcast piston. The piston sleeve wears very fast.

Wait a minute ... a mutual friend of ours looks like Massimo Fantini.

Hi D, I had my last race of 2004 on Sunday, my 710 perform excellent I was winning the race until I was hit by one of the racers coming into the straight line making me lose the first place finishing second for few seconds.

I Change from
UTO / LT to UTO / LB
Front Roll Center 0 under
DRS LEVEL
Tighten from Diff and loosen Rear Diff
Increase Toe in from 2 to 3
Anti Roll Bar Front 45
Anti Roll Bar Rear 2.5mm flat
New longer Servo Saver

These changes made the behavior of the car improve in a very low traction fast track.

Now my question is, if I make the Wishbone front 1mm modification will this improve my --ON THROTLLE CORNER ENTRY & EXIT?

Thanks

What exactly would you say is an improvement in these areas? More steering less steering, more traction?

More steering (turn the sweeper at higher speed)

rcpanama, I noticed that the new servo saver really brings the car up to speed in the high speed sweepers so long as you do not lock the steering. Just turn a little to steer the car and the car will cut the sweepers like a hot knife to butter. Not full locking. I found harder rear springs than front really keep the car tracking straight on throttle and point it where you want.

Another thing you could try is to set the 2.5 mm rear sway bar slightly harder. You may want to try less rear toe in. With +3, you loose on power steering. I think the team guys always try as little rear toe in as possible so that you get as much on power and straight line speed as possible.
