Someone took some pictures from Morganti's car and I'm sure he'll get it posted on here. Morganti was already running in the high thirteen's so his setup should be close.
Thanks for the info - I'm not sure about the wheelbase mod, still - I know Julius doesn't like the twichyness.

But you think the longer servo saver works well?

Cheers, Mark.

Mark, I think that's what JustRace means by "new Ackerman" ... the longer servo saver.

Reistance is futile ... DO the SWB mode but take out only 1-2mm, no more. you can ALWAYS reset it back you lazy bum!

Yeah, I got what he meant, I just wanted to know if it actually did a good job.

On a serious note, for a minute Maybe the combination of the longer servo saver + the thicker anti-roll bar does give you the same as your mod. Have you tried the new anti-roll bar yet.....I loved the change it made to my car at my circuit.

Cheers, Mark.

I happened to notice that Paolo was running the standard wheelbase but Scotty has his 3mm short. Paolo was using mostly the standard setup and his car is the fastest TC I have ever seen. That Mega engine screams. Paolo and Scotty were both using red springs but Paolo was running 40's and Scotty had 37's... very small diameter.

Yes I did, and I stood up the rear shocks to max ... it was magic for on-power!

Definitely does not work with low traction and/or rubber tyres though.
