Oh by the way... post your setup so i can take a look at it...
I'll see if I can get the fam to go to dinner at Applebee's tomorow night, then I may be able to stop at SoCal, and hang for a few minutes.

My SoCal setup

This is much off of the stock setup, just a tweak here and a tweak there to give a little more steering responce. Hope this helps!

Nightbreed, on a sarcastic note - You don't use oil filled shocks??? Friction shocks? Tie rod's(no shock what so ever, just a turnbuckle connecting the arm to the shock tower)? What kind of new shocks do they have where there is no oil? Maybe I could change my nickname from bubbles... I have to admit though, Tamiya shocks kick serious butt!
