Guys,

I found that different geometries applications work a not in the same way than what the books and the theory says and that the precious experience you may have . For me this happen from 950 series to 960, but also from 1/8 scale to sedan.
So what i have learned is that when i have a new car, is a totally new world. I try every single adjustment to see the effect. Of course the std stuff works the same (droop, camber, caster, toe, etc. etc) but specially the roll center is different in every car. I think that maybe this is one of the reasons why some time people is not happy with a certain product. They are used to work in a way and try to apply what they know works on the new car and they get frustrated cause the result is not what they expect. Well, my suggestion is take your time, try to work with open mind and you will be surprised with the results.

Taner: Lower upper position gives you more steering (initial)
Upper longer arms gives you more steering (overall) New pulley is basically the same fast pulley but now will have a clip to be keep it in place.

Nigel: nice colors on the avatar

Scotty: great race last weekend.
