Hi guys,

I ran blue fronts and long reds in the rear. Did not change the shock itself. Still the stock canister and shaft.

I heard on Friday the shipment of parts in coming today, so you should be able to get stuff before this weekend. Just contact the people you order from.

Later,

DJ Apolaro

Not sure, since I live in the USA. I am sure it will not be much longer for those that have not yet got them.

DJ,

What's your track track with front and rear. As per the manual the car is 197 front and 198 rear. I couldn't use the inner hole on the rear up right, couldn't get enough camber. Should have just widen the rear track, Duh!!!

I am 200 in the rear and 199 in the front. I did not get the manuel, but if it says that I would use the wider setting. Just another tip for those in the US or anywhere I guess. Just do not want to through off the people that run on different tracks. I assume that the instruction were based on the testings from the Euro guys, so I do not want to hurt the racers under those conditions. I have yet to see instructions, so I have no clue to what they look like or say. The car transfers really good left to right, so there is no need to narrow the car.IMO

Thanks man, I'm going to do that. Are you running off set wheels. I tested on Jaco Prisms that I got from Serpent America. Are they 0 off set?

I run zero degree, as that is what the car is made for. Every brand, even though they are zero degree might be slightly different, based on there mold. Just check your track width when you change a style of rim.

Started building my kit yesterday. IMO the car goes together really well, instructions are very clear, and I love some of the features. I cant stop being amazed by the front layshaft mount, that is just brilliant. You just put it together and slide it in. The diffs are amazing as well, so small, and I love the fact that it comes with lightened outdrives, less work for me. The upper deck is so small, its almost as if its not there! Cant wait to drive it, its gonna be a long week for me, just waiting for Sunday so I can burn some rubber. Another driver had the car at the track and it looks like the car has so much steering, yet its stable in the back

Which ackerman insert is everybody running?

I don't see a problem when mounting a SIRIO based engine.
