Thanks & Congrats rjl! I'm very happy already of my other 05R with Kawa Center Conversion and this one was just very hard to pass on, that is why I bought it and I know that this will make me faster....that is IF I found the right center dogbone for the front.

I tried the MTX3 doggies today and it's perfect only for the rear. I hope the 710 doggies work for the front.

By any chance RJL.... can you Please give the part nos. for the Kawa center dogbones....Thanks!

Mike, do you guys race clockwise or anti-clokwise down-under?

I think this has a bearing as to whether the conversion will do good for you.

forget the conversion, the standard layout is easier to drive and once you fit the RRR front hubs you'll have the steering you've been looking for.

Actually $590 Mike. You know me, you know when I say this is the best thing it's gotta be pretty good. It corners harder than any car I've ever driven and even with the one way I am out braking two diff cars. I'm not finding the car to be frigile at all, in fact I hit another car that was lidded on the straight at Hoppers, the other car must have got 6 foot off the ground, my body and bumper were totalled, front CV smashed but no other damage.

Oh and I love the adjustable chassis flex. If Simon were to drive this car it would be impossible for anyone down here to stay with him.
You'd better come over for the VORTEC Championships, you will see what I am talking about.

If Simon were to drive your car, he'd have the sense to tighten them screws . . .

Mike, don't listen to him. Get an entry form HERE and come over.

On the front shock tower, the upper hindge support has two settings. Which way works best for you ... up or down?

And I was wondering if anyone has a killer setup for the ZT1. Most everyone at my track uses 40shore all around with 40wt oil in the shocks and soft to medium springs. Decent traction, 200 ft straight, and roughly about 14-17 turns on a 120ft wide in-field ... just to give you an idea of my local track conditions.

Any suggestions would be great.

It only works in the lower position.
For a base set up try Josh Cyrul's on cefx.net
