great ride

Gary,
While watching the video it seems you really have the handling dialed in. What have you done to the suspension and specifically how do you have the sway bars set up. Always an issue for me. Do you have them set stiffer front/softer rear? appreciate your input

I assume you mean this one? http://garyr.blip.tv/file/496498

Torsions are Saunders hollow 34/24, Shocks are custom valved Bilsteins, adjustable sways are Smart Racing F/R (forget size, sorry) set full soft in the rear and mid-stiff up front. All bushings are monoball/polybronze and I believe 3 deg. neg. in front, 2 in rear.

Thanks Gary, very similar to my set up but once i went to a full cage the increased stiffness threw off my handling. Went stiffer on fronts and made turn in much better. Still need more track time for fine tuning. Your car looks great and I understand your dilema. good luck on whatever you do.

Jesus Gary I'm running this car across my buddy Mike Ferra. He's a PCA instructor in the area and use to own MacSource Carrera Cup but sold that recently. He's now looking to buy an RS from Dan for PCA(his setups ARE amazing) but maybe just maybe I can spark some interest in him with this. Beside if he get's it that means I get to maintain it for him

That is absolutely one beautiful car. Hope it goes to a good(deserved) new owner.

Me too Adam, it HAS to stay on the track... I did a 2:14 at WGI after 3 DE sessions, there is a 2:05 in her as she sits, who knows what she is capable of with a .8 bar spring (I only was running .6!).
