Tim
That's actually the setup I ran this weekend and it felt very good. Might stiffen up the springs a little to fine tune it.

Thanks

i check it with a ride height guage in the rear.in the front i just make sure there is no sag in the front by the steering knuckles.i shim them with about .010 of preload on the springs.for the rear droop,i set my car at ride height and lift the rear by the ball stud on the upper pod plate until the shock stops it from lifting.i measure this by using the ride height guage and checking the lift over ride height.

I was wondering if I could get a price for a set of new mi2 shock towers. I would prefer a front tower that is sloted. Thanks.

Jason:

Hi,

Just checking to see if you had a T2 chassis. I kinda need it before Cleveland so I can get some track time with it.

Thanks

Hiy Tim,

Sorry to hear about the carts but good thing you still can race R/C's together and work on the import some.

I just started to race some touring again. IT has been alot more fun this time around as I'm not doing the buy a new car every other week thing. Next new car will be when Schumacher has their new car done in a couple months. Started racing at are local indoor asphalt track. It was greeat to get back to racing and hanging with my friends again. ALso nice to get back on Tech a little more than I was for last couple of months to. Missed reading the posts that this site offers.
