Standard position.

There was no oversteer with this setup on the Toledo track.

I didn't try the Stratus body. I plan to do that soon, as well as the Altis.

As for tires, I know Paolo was running 38F/40R early in practice, but I don't know what he finished with.

I ran 35F/40R in qualifying, but ran the harder compound for the longer mains and discovered I liked those tires better.

I believe they're for putting in your fuel tank if it expands and gets oversized.

OK & tnx. I had forgotten about that, and there is a hole in the bottom of the tank to install it.

He means he used the blue spring with the shock mounted on the lowest hole on the shock tower.
