Your car need some adjustments if your track has some sharp 180-degrees turns. The rear of your car must be softer than normal in order to prevent the rear end to break out.
so the new lower and help more even with the soft new sway bar?

With some other settings, yes.

On suggestion 2) my findings were that on a large track with sweepers and few hairpins it's a great setup and the rear of the car is fully planted. But on small, tight tracks it didn't work well for me. Suggest you put in a couple of screws to allow this position and try it out.

Spent one day last week switching shocks, springs, position, etc. I tried Lee's suggestion of heavy oil (45 wt) plus grey springs in the top position for the rear shock. I find the car is quick in this configuration but is slightly jumpy for my tastes right now but I may try to master it later on when time allows. The car is ultra freaking quick.

Suggest you skip the rear aluminium brake pulley. No matter what I do that thing slips way too often. Went back the original. No problems.

Also, I've had no end of trouble with the new fuel tank lid. It's leaky. It's not fuel that leaks, it's the oil from the exhaust. It makes a terrible mess. I've gone back to the original and will wait for the new integrated tank and lid to come out before going back to the 'new' style.

Hard parts? Awesome option!! A must for any 960 owner.

Aluminum brake hub pulley works fine for me! I've been using it for awhile now and no problems! another awesome quality part from serpent.

Just a few remarks ... question yourself; Is the new product lighter? Does it improve performance? Does it improve maintenance?

Within racing its not (all) about "nice to see", always ask yourself the 3 questions above.
