AWESOME STEVE =; \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Here is one that Linda took on Sunday, my round 2 loss, but this makes up for the loss to me the way the car launched, and the whole weekend just made my winter projects a lot funner to do ;-)

Thanks again

Nice carry there John!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So that looks like the short time came from the rear tires LOL =; ...
Im thinking you need some wheeleee bars back there \:D/ \:D/

John in the first vid that Steve posted it always went to the left??? Did you have to much preload in there or what
did you change or was it the track.. #-o

Barry It was pointed left a little on the first. Then we go him straight. You see the video that I'm looking over the top. Then we went to the right but it still moved left on launch. So it has to be his set up.

Barry, good eyes ;-) and yes, it is driving to the left after the hit, so I will put it up on my boxes and check out the 4 link bars to see if one is tighter then the other on the top first, and then check my ARB too.
If anybody on here understands those lazer alignment racks maybe you can help me out with my tech sheet, or I will call the shop tomorrow and find out.

You are also correct about the short times clicking the timers with the rear tires, how frickin cool is that? =; \:D/ It's all good for now, but I need to keep the front end down a bit more and keep it straight and carry it out a little shorter for my liking. It was defenitely hooking at Indy this past weekend for sure =D> so mu claps go out to the track people at Indy as they kept the track in top shape the whole weekend.

I had 2 measurments taken off the rear rims and the Left has 0.31 degrees, and the right has -0.36
I think the guy told me that my axle was a little farther back on the pass side then the driver side, and to me, that makes no sense with the way the Elky is driving to the left as I would think it would go to the right myself! :-k Feel free to reply to this...

I had a very small amount of preload to the ARB and I don't think it would make it drive to the left as the axle straightness is what drives the back of the chassis, so, I need to do some digging a little.

I wish I had room for wheelie bars as when my chassis guy did mu backhalf, he said " this car doesn't need wheelie bars" Well, I proved him totally wrong \:D/
