Finally its finished, well almost. Here it is, red billet alloy parts, red washers and all titanium screws everywhere. All I need to do is find some red fuel line.

All i have to do is lenghten the rear shocks somehow to give me more suspension travel, i know there is that extended carbon fibre body bracket but i want it to start at the highest point.

i didn't connect them just to see how the car would react..
Hey people the screws screwed me Problem solved and now I installed longer screws just to be sure. We had a day event with top local drivers and came second and not first because of a mistake I did due to worn front tires and chassis grinding = heavy under steer still enjoyed it.

Hey guys what do you think it's best to do to get more traction on a quite bumby / dirty track which is quite slippery.
I also think that my 1st is to low as I really have wheel spin, is this normal?

Try starting with the first gear of 61 with a 20 pinion. This will help your rear traction also.

For the chassis try the run the softest rear sway bar with the 2 hole pistons and 55wt oil. Then use the red springs and raise them 1 hole from the bottom.

Also try to remove 1 or 2mm from the rear camber link to make the link have more of a straight angle. This will help with on power traction. It will hurt your off power traction a little and you will also loose some rotation as well.

Hope this helps,

DJ Apolaro

Hey Dj can't afford to loose off power steering as I am already suffering a lot of grip up front. Re RED springs all round wouldn't they be to soft? Thought of going with the black but I noticed that they are much shorter.

Reds in the rear and less angle will make more grip in the rear and will not be too soft. I have run this before on a track that had to much front bite.
I would use the White mugen or capricorn blue front springs and Reds in the rear. Lay the front down and up one in the rear. Also use the flat front sway bar to help with the stability. Maybe even give it a 45 degree angle.

Trust me it is worth a try.

Question; I assume you meant to say you can not afford to loose off power stability and not steering, since you are saying you have too much front grip. Am I correct or is it under steering going in.

For the bumpy track also try to drill the piston holes to 1mm. This will help a lot over the bumps.

Good luck,

DJ Apolaro

I meant off power steering, I don't have enough grip car is really lazy around corners off power. Re red spring will give them a try even upfront?

DJ.
Capricorn shock oil do you know how it translate to Mugen or Xray.
Example Capricorn 60 might be what in Mugen or Xray.

Thanks
