Chris.. for the rear geometry (assume everything elses unchange), which one provide more traction (on the track),

Rear upper arms: inner position (longest)
Rear lower arms: middle position
compared to
Rear upper arms: outer position (shortest)
Rear lower arms: upper position

Thanks

I've only tried the upper arms in the outer posistion once and it was at a track that has unique traction conditions and changes are hard to feel.

I am currently running the car with the upper arms in the inner and the lower arms in the middle roll center and the car feels very comfortable in these settings.

Yes, I feel very comfortable with the car I can put it anywhere at anytime on the track while driving. It's very responsive in a positive way to adjustments thus making it easy predict the adjustments needed for any given track condition. I want to thank you and Glenn for all your help, it's nice to see more Serpent wait, more fast Serpent cars at the track.

Thanks

Lou

No problem on the help. I have had a good time going to the track practicing with you guys over the last few months. Keep up the good work.

Hello guys. I have a question. I just put the aluminum suspension brackets on my 960 and it seems that I have some slop in the front part where the insert goes in, the rear side seems to be ok. just wondering if anyone else noticed this. may they need to make the insert a little bit bigger.

No problem on the help Ryan.

Alyssa wants to run her car more now. Maybe after a couple more practice runs, it will be time to move her over to the asphalt.

There is a little play in the insert. I leave it alone and it does not seem to affect the handling. Some 960 drivers in my area use a little bit of shoe goo on the insert to get rid of the play.

Henry,

How's the ankle? Hope it's feeling better. It amazed me that your ankle was strong enough to break the car. Paul Coleman was looking good with Bryon's 960 until he hit your ankle at full tilt.

Chris

Your dad is going to have to take that up with Paul when he comes back from the Silver State.
