Assuming that you have already change with new crystal, you should check the receiver is dry and free from fuel splashes. Make sure all connectors ( metal to metal ) feel tight.

Double layers double tape to reduce vibration.

Only managed to run a 3 tanks full before I went airborne clipping an apex curb that sent my car flying to the metal fencing ......broke the rear bulk head that holds onto the rear shock tower, drats.

Initiall feel with the new setup is steering feels less aggressive and with a tinge of understeer. Going to get ém spare for the next run.

Welcome to the club. That was the achylles heel of that car. Many of us suffered of this (and many DNF's were due to this).

One remedy to this was to put a slightly longer screws there (take care of not hitting the diff bearing putting a too long screw, don't remember if they were 3x10 or 3x12mm if 10mm long, put a 12mm. If 12mm put a 15mm screw to have more meat of the rear bulkheads gripping the rear shock stay bulkhead.

Good idea, i could meaure the depth of the hole and change the screw accordingly.

One other thing I noticed today, when the gear shifts to second the front of the car actually lift! both front wheels were off the ground! At first I thought it was the heat so I got the guy in the pit to keep an eye on it and they confirmed it!

front shock 3 holes front outside/rear two from top.50wt -2 camber front/-4 rear camber. Front/rear toe remain. - sorry, my personal notepad. Lazy to jot ém on paper

It's 12mm screw if you talking like in the picture, see the arrow marking in the attachment.

Yep... those two screws need to be a little longer and is almost a thing of the past the DNF's for this weakpoint (unless you go berserk to the pianos and go airborne each lap ).

won't your car experience a bit off understeering..

..anyway regarding shock oil..i've been using something like 70/80 wt oil like forever ...recently change to 50wt oil all round just to see the different reaction of the car....i notice a more grippier setup rather than b4,not a very large difference ...

...anyway i like to hear u guys comment a bit through your experience liking/dislike on oil choices...thanks

Yes, mine is little bit understeering under full throttle....... anyway that's the way I like it. Infact I use two piston holes at front and one piston hole at rear with light blue springs all around and 40wt oil. Maybe because my car is gawd damn stiff ( 4mm chassis from 3 racing + 5mm CF upper deck ).
