I know...
let me just paraphrase the question.

Anybody knows if the Manifold that comes with this pipe is the Conical one or the regular one?

I just raced last night(sat), I was wondering if anyone could help me ont on a problem i had. traction was kinda low since they ran out of fruit punch when they sprayed the track. I had like pretty much no rear traction. I was running 42 fronts and 40 rears trued to 64mm. 3 degrees of rear toe, 1.5 out on front and 2 degrees of camber on f and r. I am running the b blocks on f and r. only way i could drive the car was to just throw it into the corner and power through it before the rear slid out. almost felt like i was drifting. was really frusterating. i ended up 3rd but only cause 2 guys flamed out.
any help will be much appreciated.

Were you sliding at turn-in or on exit?

What springs were you using front and rear?

Things to try:


Increase front droop

Increase rear ride height

Softer rear springs

Stiffen front springs

Lighter rear shock oil

Lighter rear diff oil


I race on blown untreated asphalt on rubber and foam and these were the things we did to get on-power traction on a 140F track.

Other things to try are....

"C" roll center block

One hole out on rear shock tower

Increase caster

Default low rear traction

Also try cutting the rear uprights down to make the rear link more horizontal.

Do not increase castor (Decrease castor)and dont raise the rear of the car lower it (unless) it is draging the track.
