And I also changed the trackwidth of the car by widening the arm mounts by 2mm which gives me 1mm wider on eachside of the car as my last setup I used 1mm hex spacers but I got rid of them and widened the arm mounts to get the same track width. And traction came up and the car was more responsive so I went to 1.5 front camber to mellow out the front. And put the rear shocks at hole #5 to give the rear more stability. The car is now the best its been and won the mod Amain with this setup. My club has a lot of talent so its super competitive.
Jeff, I could really see the improvement this time. Usually you're right there with Kody on fast lap, but you tend to give up several seconds over a run due to mistakes. Your driving style is usually super aggressive, and looks a bit wild. However, this time your lines were really smooth, tight, and controlled, with mistake-free runs. Nice work.
