No, flatteing the upper link will lower the roll centre, which will increase the roll moment of the rear of the car. We generally run the rear link in the inner hole with the 2mm spacer on top of the w/b. std roll centres front and rear. This is a good starting point for most tracks. Running the shorter link will give the feeling of a more 'locked in' rear end until the rear breaks, which will be before the longer link, and the rear will let go in a big way.

You did good this past weekend. I'm proud of you. So how do you like that RRR now?
Jim...you should start using the Serpent Jaco's. It's a much better rim.

Thanks for the pitting. But if there's a next time I think we need to do some pit stop practice The beginning of the race was perfect!!

I think the RRR is a good car. But since I'm hanging up my radio I won't be buying one I'll get to use Rob's once in awhile

I'll try the Serpent Jaco's once I figure out how I'm going to widen the rear of the car.

I think we should practice pitting at the Region 4 race in May. What do you think?

I think you should get that RRR from Tino. You never know when you're gonna need it.

If you do retire, and I doubt you will, I must say thanks for all the help. It's been fun, except for the ride home on Sunday.
