Just wondering the track condition, is it high traction track?
I feel like the rear end is too heavy if downstop is 8

Thank you for the setup.

Is it correct, that Ralph is runing no shims at the rear camber link?

Good catch! I missed that field when transferring the info.

There is a 2mm shim. The rear shock pistons should also be two hole, not three.

I will edit the sheet when I get back to work this morning.

- Update: Setup sheet in previous post edited with info above.

Default Clutch shoe

Hi all, did anyone tried, the clutch shoe surface got warp? But the clutch shoe still shinny and no groove.

I change 2 clutch shoes, did all the shoe break-in, but the shoe got serious damaged. The more in high speed turn, the fast wear that I've found.

it makes me recall my memory of my 960 when it was launched. i had always a yellow dusting clutch, the clutch had eaten me more than 1 dozen of yellow clutch shoes. finally i sold my 960(it didn't finish 3 sets of tires).
at that time, i bought my mrx4, i never look back.
i would play with something give me fun, not pain.(my 2 cents)

Hahaha, i strongly believe the shoe material problem. The friend of mine using 966 yellow shoe, just let it powdering and bedding in the shoe with Xray bell, no more dust. I going to try tomorrow.

i told in this thread already. you should not spend time to test so much things. just go to your track, check out those sponsored drivers, see what they are using- all not using the original x'ray's.
in fact, x ray should refund with a good and usable parts instead of having customer plays, tries and fails with.

But the original parts were fine on my old engine, it last for 2 months already.
The only thing is, the parts worn out when i install the new engine. So its time to try something new a reliable :lol

If you still want to pursue this car, stop buying the options. Wait until it launches some 2012 edition,,,,,, you will save a lot of money.
This car has already got too many more options than it claimed it was based on a reliable platform to re engneer.
i still own the reliable platform, it doesnt have so many pieces of options. Isnt it amazing?

And you dont have to buy genuine, there are plenty of good and much less expensive after market options.
Good luck.
