I will check my car, but I ran the RS this past weekend using the stock dogbones and nothing broke. I have not heard anything back from any of my customers either.

Default tires split

I've started my race with a 7mm tire splt; after about 25mins, tires split become only 3mm. How can I maintain my tires split better? Or it's normal?

Car handles ok and using 35F and 37R tires.

That would have been my question exactly.

We are running the 51T rear pulley and the car holds the split much better than the 966 did the last two years.

Post your setup, something is not right with it. Also, check your tires with a durometer, they might not be the shore the box says they are.

I finally got to run my RS on our home track yesterday, with enough time to try a bunch of set up changes. I TQ'ed the club race and was winning but had engine issues (very rare these days) and dropped out. The car was very good and I think I have a good baseline for our high grip and relatively tight tracks. My setup is not that different from my P81 setup, but with the new towers and floating tray the car feels faster in the corners and the lap times reflect that. The RS definitely turns better and without the use of softer fronts. I'll try to post my current setup on the motonica-usa website this week. Still a few things I have not tried but will do next time.
