Bob Barry you should try a front swaybar. That will help the car stay flatter in the corners and you still can run lighter springs and oils. I think to if you laid your front and rear shocks in on the tower (almost all the way) it would be even better for you. I know in all of my Schumachers from the past that the more I laid the shock down the better the car worked with foams on asphalt.

Sway bars are already on all around. I think the car was just too soft. Alot of the setup info I have been getting from the other drivers are softer but they are all runing on rubber tires on big wide open tracks. They all run spools too. It's kind of hard to compare setups, usually I just say my car does this and they say do this. Sometimes it works, Sometimes it doesnt. I'm learing though...little by little. I improved my car almost 3 laps over the course of the race day yesterday. I just have to be patient and learn the way touring cars work.

No problem Bob. Trial and error is the best teacher. I thin on my Schumacher touring cars I normally ran 40 to 50 wt oil and 2 hole pistons with I think red Schumacher springs.
