Which roll center are you using? UBO/LB? I believe you would need to tighten the top rear pivot ball to the max and then set the rear camber / toe in. The minimum trackwidth I measured was 197 mm I believe. If you have different left and right rear camber, your top rear pivot ball would be screwed in differently.

If you still cannot get to the rear trackwidth, then just get the most minimum that you can get. Watch the rear dogbones. Make sure that it does not bind.
Ellegi white spoked rim and Yes...I am using UBO/LB. I can get it to 199mm but that has the top smashed together....will that affect it at all?

Hey man, if you want to bash the serpent all day, thats fine...just start a new thread. Meanwhile, let us talk about setups, parts, women, and other areas of true interest.

I am becoming annoyed, not just at the repeated comments, but at having to filter out all of the unneccessary posts when reading this thread.

The top pivot balls should not smash together with the top arm. Else, they will bind.

I'll go home and check. I remember I got it at that trackwidth. What rear camber do you run?

STS carbs are close to ideal because STS engines work about the same as Nova engines. But one thing I found about STS carbs are that they are composite and not aluminum like Nova.
True. I will be testing w/ a nelson plug this weekend, instead of the turbo.

Just as a note.
I use UBO/LT with 4 deg rear camber, must cut the top arm almost 1.5mm to gain 199mm trackwidth (with GQ tires)

Oh yes. Forgot either Pyramid or yourself posted that setup mentioning that...

UBO / LT gives a pretty high rear roll center. How do you like it?

You are right Mr Steady, I setup my own Album and put in two pit babes, but, forgot to put in my mechanic, he is a bit clumsy at times.
