That's got to be the second most polite reply to Mr. Hudy. I know you tried your best rwisejr but I guess Marcos was one up on ya. Always a next time.

Congrats on the first run ! We all have brain fades (or farts) some way or another. Not surprising as Herbie overan his engine durign break in ! What was he thinking? Perhaps he too was too mesmerised by the car itself.

Well I was quite nice to him several pages ago. But he just won't leave it alone already.

Ummm, that could be what I'm experiencing. Momentarily testing the Alfa 2.1 also yielded the same feeling. Perhaps the rear wing should be cut smaller?

The other reason could also be I mounted the body too much to the rear. I somehow managed to get the rear bodypost to mount IN FRONT of the wing and not through the wing mounts.

Anyway, by pushing the body forward 2 cm, how is the front part of the bodyshell bumper supported? Usually, it goes nicely against the foam bumper...

Have you guys used the Serpent Volvo body on a high speed, high traction track?
I believe what they have tried using successfully is the Stratus body with the Volvo wing. That's what Julius posted.

I believe Rene was using that in the past 2 race meetings ago in Germany. Solid rear with front diff. Odd combo though. His setup can be found below;

Maybe you have been "keterlaluan" for couple of week.
Do you still think "keropok is the best" ?
