we always have the option of using our own rules for this class. They should be ready soon. I wonder if roar is waiting for their next annual meeting to confirm things. I don't want to wait another year.

I would like to hope that at some point we would know the 'rest of the story' and why our elected representatives have taken so long with this....

BUT, we probably won't ever know.... It just grinds my shorts that 'they', whoever 'they' is can sit on their hands and ignore what the membership (or at least a portion of it) thinks we want....

and NO, I'm not running for anything.... or from anything.... actually, running is NOT an option for me!

I was pouting so much I had to take a day trip to England !!

It's sooooooooo good to be back, but I forgot my sister made rhubarb crumble for the Sunday lunch and I was in the air winging it home. Someone mentioned rhubarb just now and I nearly got myself banned from Rhubard Tech !!

Are we running them JSpeed bodies BTW ?? They look cute (like the designer I hear !!)

I've been using J speeds GT2 set up for YEARS - always seems to be hooked up when I'm using the right tire for the temp and isn't real twitchy or hard to manage.

1000wt diff fluid in the shocks.

Rear diff fluid at 10k
Front diff fluid between 30k-60k

Front and rear sway bars.

I apologize, the car is a kyosho gt2 with sway bars in front and rear. Also, if this helps, warrior body and sweeps 45 rear ,50 front.

What im basically looking for is to get more steering without having the rear end sweep or spin out.
