D, even Sissies don't want to hang around with Lola drivers - they would loose what little credability they have left if the did that

It's a never ending cycle, so it is better to simply keep eating the whole time - Sow will tell you that you don't leave food on the table in front of me for long

Thats true but then that would mean the right shock would be higher than the left The car would be slightly tilted. Boy this thread moves fast

Well, you and NiMo are brothers in arms then whether you like it or not.

If its a TC race then it should still be fun but slightly slower.

Careful ... there's some formidable brethren lurking in here racing far bigger cars than your with Lolas as their shell of choice. They're the same people that you both bow to and lick their shoes off!!!

Yeah but you can always tell her you're going to Malaysia ... land in KL, meet D up and then fly to Bangkok from there. Afterwards tell GF it was all Alex Choong's fault!

The shock is not any higher (thats why you do the tweaking), the preload is. But all this only good when the car stand still which is not what we are looking for... I guess you missed the discussion about adding weight on the left side.
