I ended up having to switch the red rear for yellow rear and that got the rear more planted. Stiffening the rear bar to the hardest position also helped. By the end of the day I was very satisfied with the balance and handling of the car.
Wow thats a lot of steering!! I will have to try that. Do you have the part# of the parts that I need to run that WOS set up?

The closest 960 to me is a 2-3 hour flight. I guess I will suss it out in a few weeks at the Nationals, otherwise I'll try and borrow a camera during the week. I'm the only Serpent 960 in Mugen country and dam its good when you beat them

I know a few Kiwi's are planning on going to the Queensland titles in August. I wouldn't mind going, but all comes down to money. I've raced at Brendale before at the Pre-Worlds, so would like to go back and take the 960 this time. Our only big meeting is the Nationals and that is every Easter, and at my home track next year. I'd really like to have a run at Moorebank at some stage, maybe next year.

Heres some pics of my 960.




As you can see, the body mount on the right sits higher than the left.

Default uneven body mount

Greg,
the upper shock mount is blocking the view, but if the upper arm's inner pin position wasn't symmetric, then the mount would be uneven.
i would think the upper camber adjustment would also be uneven but i can''t see from the picture
