Default RRR

Regular RRR not WC. I didn't think the WC would benefit me in drag racing. Why?

Solid front diff, solid or a very heavy oil in rear diff, 0 camber front and rear, 0 rear and front toe. You wont need any camber as youre not negotiating corners.
By running zero toe you`ll take away the slip-angle/friction on the tyres.
Cheers

whats up grinder,
yeah i think i am back to the rrr. i just can't seem to get the 710 dialed in. it worked great at fort myers--- where it was very smooth and a ton of traction. i think any car would work good there. but, at the track i race at, it is very bumpy, dirty, and not so great traction. and i can not seem to get my car to work to well. when i raced my rrr my best lap was 16.8 (i only raced it at the track two times) and with the 710 its like 18--- the car is very unstable. one thing i noticed with the 710--- atleast the way i have it set up--- is that i can not break in turns without the car giving in (back end comes out). i have to break before i start turning. with the rrr, i can break much later into the turn and still have control over the car. have you noticed this? well, oh well. hey, you going to naples? i think i might be.

Did you ask Art to give you a hand? I'm sure he'll get the car to work.
