Glad I ordered the Mugen Grease now but it'll have to wait for either the next rebuild or for the second car. This first one is rapidly becoming an R&D machine and is already full of strange stuff on it!

Check if the chassis is straight, shocks are equal length and same rebound (especially rear), rear droop is the same and if the rear sway bar is not binding in any way. What rear droop are you running? Perhaps it's too much that causes a lot of weight transfer to the front.

A harder rear diff and a limited amount of rear droop helps to make the braking more stable.



Red springs and yellow stock ones are the ones used mostly. Perhaps maybe white but that is when traction is really lacking. Tires? 37, 40 and 42 shores front and rear should be about right. Depending on your setup, softer front and harder rear would help make the front and rear tire wear the same.

thanks d i will check on all those things and hopefully get it fix b/f this week race.

You must be a very lucky person then ... what is it that the English say when they wish someone good luck? Go break a leg or something?

Don't break any bones before the next "international" tour meet though right?

As long as I don't go blowing up my motor again and wrecking my chassis - no problemo! But now I have the two FXs there will be no motor problem anymore.

And once I've booked my flight, there'll be no going back.

Mind you, I've seen the way he stares at them girls coming from shopping at the Atria track ... now you know why he crashes and bents his chassis upwards!



Even that he's trying to blame the starter box or something?! Kids ....

The Germans say break a leg and your neck - which a colleague said before I went away on the fateful snowboard weekend - fulfilled one of his wishes

All I can say is that I'm glad that my circuit is in the middle of a forest! I'd be breaking stuff every week if I raced where D does!

Hey, don't you ever come home to the UK to visit friends or family? Come over to AMCC ... as NiMo says ... "Overseas visitors welcomed".

If things go according to plan, I'll join the Series 2 race on the 4th of July.

C'mon man ... we'll get PalamarisEurope, kreidel etc over too perhaps.

Did you download the Titiwangsa video? What do you think?

I didn't bother with the Fleetwood Mac tune this time though ...
