      Adam, what your car needs is color-coded ducttape.

      That's all

        I offered him my red ducttape but he said it was too much work.

          hmmmm.... well front splitter it is then....the only issue I have with that is....1st off and its gonna be a problem when it digs into the dirt...

          I might go up to SGT1..since I am getting beat every event in SGT2.. with the extra 5+ pips I can easily get the car to beat the SGT3 cars..

          1 pip for front splitter...

          4 pips for? any other suggestions...

          at mosport the nose was just plowing through corner 3 so bad it was just silly..rest of the track its was bad..but not as bas as corner 3... the rear however is very well planted now..

            Adam, if you're plowing at Mosport, you have issues. The fact that you can't break the rear loose while cornering tells me that you have plenty of tire and downforce in the rear. How about more tire in the front? Possible?

            For a splitter, use 1/4" plywood, and make 2 of them. Cheap and easy to cut. Another option is ABS or HDPE ... both will survive off-roading just fine (ask me how I know). Go about 2-3" out from the bumper, and run it back as far as you can (to the front axles at least. Cover as much of the bottom as you can. Make sure you attach the front with enough screws, and secure the rear so it does not move (wel a couple of brackets to the subframe or something).

            Next, plug up all the holes in your bumper ... you want a smooth facia for the air to flow around.

            Are you SURE you're not hitting the front bump stops? This was a problem with my car before I got a proper race suspension. Use the zip-tie test on the shock shaft to check this. It could be that you're simply undersprung, or have your ride height set too low. You could try raising the rear a bit, this should put a bit more grip to the front.

              nope..no more tire infront.. 275's are as big as its gonna get (this car came with 195's stock)

              will start to make a few splitters up...and some sturdy fixtures to hold it onto the car..

              yes..holes in bumper are bad...


              no where near the bump stops in corner 3..the nose is just washing out very badly... taking the car to a alignment shop tomorrow to see if my toe is messed up..that might be the issue right there...

              ride height is not very low..I have lots of suspension travel..and rarely bottem out even on big rumble strips


              raising the rear can be done easily..will try that as well..if the alignment comes back ok..

                Your really wide tires are more sensitive to camber now, have to taken any tire temp data?
