Any chance of you giving us your impression of the Winternats? How the car went, any problems encountered, setup for next year?

Congratulation on your result! Great run!

Cheers, Mark.
Winternats was awesome like usual, Jim Rice and his crew put on a fantastic show.
It was so freaking cold out there that one morning you could even scrap ice off of the pit tables

The car is good real good the car only got better from practice to qualifiers. The only real problem was one traction roll I had thru the s in front of the timing loop. The car slide on its roof and the rear end smacked the wall breaking the left rear lower arm . I also had mileage problems like others .
Good weekend over all.....and now hear comes what I think you guys really want to see.

I'm off to test mine again at the weekend - first test very positive, second test will be even better, I think.

Mark....it's more of a borrowed ride from Niketa. I'm still waiting for some parts to finish up. But you know I'm a big snake fan

Thank you Jeff.

I tried to search back the discussion on off set front knuckle but after 10-20 pages i still could find one. Have to raise it again guys sorry. Anybody have good comment on The front knuckle 1 and 2 offset. Is it will improve further the steering etc?

Esham, all depends on your driving style and also the requirements of the particular track. I have installed the 1 degree front knuckle and on power steering has noticeably improved. The V1RRR have enough off power steering even with the 1 degree knuckle

using the 1or2 deg. knuckle is like adding more caster to the car. it will tame the entrance steering but will give you more exit steering.

Default What rear diff oil are you using?

The kit comes with 30,000 rear diff silicon oil (hard). What are you using and why?

My rear diff started leaking again and I need to buy a new housing and change it out. I might as well put in some other oil in while I'm at it!

Thanks!

P.S. Things were just fine with the front one-way this weekend. Driving and braking were not a problem at all. I think I'll keep it as is.

Go up in weight according to how much traaction track has. higher traction
heavier weight lower traction lighter weight...that simple........find a happy median with your setup and diff and the car should react......dont try to get the car to work soley on changing diff oil. you also need to fine tune with other things to make the car bettter.

Hope this helps a little

Thanks for the info.

How about the wear-and-tear on the car - the track is pretty hard on on the parts, so any weaknesses will show up there pretty quickyl.

Thanks, Mark.
