I would think you will not be sleeping when your kit comes !

Can you see sun to play in that cold weather? What time does the sun come up?

Nope, the brown shoe has less slip than the black shoe.

I will try out a few things this week end ... I hope my car will not be traction roll until broke thing again !!

Last week, I broke front absorber and rear wishbone because of 2 time of traction roll. My car flew like SpiderMAN to the wall
It depends on when the traction roll happens. If it is entering the corner you may not have enough rear grip. A little softer rear bar or a lower rear roll center will help.

If you roll in the middle of the corner you can use a higher front roll center (lower the pivot points of the front upper arms).

Anyway I saw you used 37 shore tires. Go up at least one step as the tire will then flex less and this helps reduce traction roll.

What body is on the car?

I was using Alfa 156 and I got traction roll in middle of the corner when I was trying to carry more speed.

I will try 42 and 45 this weekend.

Well, that would almost apply to me too when my car takes off into the air after hitting the kerb!

Perhaps it's a different brown material but if I take the description of the XP clutch shoe (6587XP) from the Centax I / II clutch shoes, it reads like this;

"This black centax clutch shoe is made from a new material that gives you more ‘punch’ on acceleration. Although, due to the nature of the material used on the XP (xtra performance) clutch shoe, you sacrifice longevity, the extra power gained is worth it."

I would interpret that the material used on the XP shoes are softer and hence have more grabbing effect on the clutchbell... But of course, I may be wrong again !

Well, I dont think I will be sleeping...

In winter the sun comes up at around 6:30-7am and goes down at around 4:30-6pm... so wwe have relatively long days in winter, but it is cold for us... summer the sun is up at around 5am and is up till around 7-7:30pm... longer days but it is hot... ~30C to ~35C

I guess KLM thought I'd better not learn the hard way

By the way did you know helicopters can't fly?

They are just so ugly the earth repels them!

In that case running a higher roll center in front and maybe even in the rear will help.
