Hey guys,
Here's what we found..when we were readjusting the front end, we found out the right front shock was bottoming out..it only had @3.5inches of travel...seems like we forgot to set the shock extensions on the front( what a bunch of morons huh)..my question is, would that be enough of a cause or should we keep looking/make any changes??
thanks
I attached our set-up

I woul start with making shure your set up is right on the money first. A shock bottoming out will upset the car. Your base line set up looks good.
Good luck

Thanks Racer,
The shock bottoming was the answer....It stuck like glue...Started fourt in our heat finished second....Started up front(third) in the feature...We were headed for the front and got struck in the left nerf and left front tire...got a flat...(Just can't catch a break this year)...The car is nearly perfect...going to go up some LR weight for the feature next week and we should be spot on

Glad to hear it. We broke a motor in the heat race. Car was realy hooked up too. Have to put the back up motor in.
