    Well, I will say that Tein has been very helpful in this process, especially Paul in their tech dept.

    I did talk to a good setup source this week and I have figured out a plan forward for my rear dampers. I should have them back this week. I'm very excited to get them on the car.

    No, everything is done in Cali. They should ship out the dampers on Monday to have them back to me by the end of the week.

    Racing tomorrow!!

    Damn, real busy couple of days...

    Racing over the weekend was fun. It's so nice to be back dodging cones again. The event this weekend was very small, it's intention was to try out some new things with our program and give our volunteers some experience in different areas of our event. Small group, we got 8 runs.

    I was on bald RT-615's with no alignment, a swaybar setup for for coilovers, and a bike rake on the top. I managed to be fairly fast. The car was VERY loose all day. I think this was mostly due to the cold temps and the worn down bricks I was using as tires. The car was also not very well balances with the swaybars at all.

    On one of the last runs, I took the car hard into a double gate were the rear end would get loose coming out. I typically had time to check the rear end and get myself setup for a hard (130 deg.) right hander before the finish, this time I had the car cooking out of the double gate and didn't have the time to get things settled. I figured I'd just throw the car into the hard right hander and hope for the best. Well, the rear end came back around to the left and the car rotated in place around the apex of this tight corner and allowed me simply drive out of the spin with throttle. That's the way to do it.

    I managed to scrape together a 4th in PAX with very limited attendance. Not too shabby with a crap setup.

    It has been a very long time since my last update. I've been busier than a one legged cat trying to bury turds on a frozen pond recently. Getting things together for the Philly Region opener tomorrow has filled much of my time.

    Also my revalved rear dampers finally showed up yesterday as with the last two bushings I've been waiting for. Last night I finished installing everything and today was spent using my corner scales and alignment tools. As an alignment tech I realize I basically suck, but every single adjustment was whacked. I managed to get the cross-weights about perfect, but I think the rear of the car may be a bit to low.

    The toe wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, but my steering wheel ended up *just* a bit off. I may fix that real quick tomorrow. I will also see how the car feels and maybe play a bit more with the ride heights tomorrow night after the event.

    So far though the car is absolutely amazing! The turn in is simply sick and the rear end is stable and predictable. Tomorrow during the event I will have to play with the dampers and get those dialed, but one thing at a time. I'm very excited for tomorrow, and I'm looking forward to giving the car a thorough run through. I'll try to take some pics.

    I'd be interested in those as well! I have a date with Memphis Motor Werks this week to get some corner weighting done as well as another alignment! :-)
