For more rear camber? Onkel Sow, where have you been all these while?

You mean you mounted the front shocks to hole number 1 on the shock tower?

Aren't you going to head to Onkel Sow's track to duel with him?

I can never remember which way round it is The lowest position, i.e. so the shocks are laying down more.

Don't worry. Give any good driver (ahem) any track layout any which way around and he'll do good.

That doesn't count. 90 days and it's history. <hope Onkel Sow does not read this>

Well, I was sick as a dog last weekend. Perhaps because I didn't have enough RC.

I guess Serpent USA is trying to curb purchases outside of the US... But that's a good move on Serpent USA's part.

I start with good intentions, but then get carried away in enjoying the driving too much I'm sure I could probably tune my setup to be even better, but driving the car is soooo much fun

Don't worry, D, Sow is hiding in the yet to be discovered regions of Scotland! Perhaps he's been eated by a Haggis!!!

Definately a rather large physiological shock - you starved your body from that which it needs!!! No wonder you were ill

Curb purchases? You mean if you buy from them directly or from a LHS?

To try and prevent purchases outside the USA by making the prices more attractive.
