Over the last few weeks I have been getting racers asking for my set-up. I will post it here as well for everyone that wants to see it.

Up to this point, I have been using the front solid and the rear floating.

I am going to try at the Winternats the front flexing and the rear floating to see what it feels like.

I have been using the stock. I tried the Optional one's that are with the Euro kit and for me the car is not as smooth through the corner. I ended up shimming the optionals to the same height as the stocks. LOL

I have ran it on 5 different tracks. Homestead, Fort Myers, Arcadia, Kissimmee and Chaplin. I would say from Medium to super high bite and all with the same set-up. My car has felt good on all tracks and I just change little things like caster, toe, camber. Nothing major though.

Default Rear Bulkhead

Another question, as just starting to build this car, is the rear bulkhead B an optional upgrade or in the kit, if its an up-grade what part number is it.

I think the A and B come in the kit.
