less roll and more traction,more stability when you're breaking

higher position with shochs will give more roll,lower is opposite
lower position will give more hang side

next time i'll go to the track i'll try the 2 positions,with the same set up,and i tell you what is the difference

you can try too....

mugen will make a tower where we can fix the shock like serpent(mugen copy )

Correct. We tested this last week, the stability during braking can be noticed quite a bit. I do not fully agree with the roll ... just test it and you will notice.

Then I understood it correctly.....

As I have the 950, I can not get my shocks that low, so I just have to live with it (I'm not gonna upgrade to the 960 yet....)

But in general the tracks in Holland don't give tractionroll problems...
certainly not at Groningen PMsorber...

Lets put it on the test next week, you will see the difference. Tractionroll is also related to speed and grip.

You got to get out there and run it. Paint a white body for practice.

Hi guys, i wonder if 960 have the front universal dog bones for the car? I lost a set of front out drive and dog bone in a day. First, i hit the board and broke the front lower arm and that's for sure the out drive and dog bone will fly out but the second time i didn't hit anything and it fly out also. I had the front track width set at stock 252mm and did add the plastic white spacer in between the out drive and the one way for both side. Any help?

Thanks.

For CV's you can use part number 902280. You can check them out here...

http://www.mytsn.com/products/desc.asp?prid=3702

Or you add an extra white shim to the outdrives. I suggest going with the optional CV's, you will never worry about a dogbone popping out again plus you get the option to use the wheel nut.
