Default Droop

Teehomo,

Hi. I have personally always checked and measured droop using the chassis stands and droop guage.Although with this method, the setting depends on what size tires are ran and what ride hight you are running.

On more than one occasion I have found set-ups where the driver has measured their car's droop by lifting the car. Ie: The amount the upright/hub carrier drops from where it sits normally with car on it's wheels.

This I think is a more appropriate measurement for droop and more accurate as this can be done irrespective of tire size and ride hight and done on set-up wheels.

It isnt that weak but all you need is a first corner pile up and to be tboned or some cowboy not slowing down on a corner and taking you out on a corner.
Si Id say more so for reliability.

The evo is the older G4 and yes it can be upgraded into a G4S but it would cost you more to do this ,just get the current G4S.Read through this thread and you will find all the info you need and the best guys around for support.

Default Speedshot

Hey Patto,

The car does look good. Looks like a winner !

Have you had much time for testing since you fitted the Speedshot front end and did you find anything interesting set up wise with the front roll centre adjustment the speedshot gives you.

Very best of luck.

Menace
