I saw your video over on Instagram. Did you ever get to the shock tuning? Still looks like it's bouncing on the leave.

I'd think for as lean as you are, added to the 60' times as they are.......you may have another second in the car!

I set them where I thought would be a baseline. Double adjustable QA1s in the rear. I had them at 2 compression and 5 rebound. Seems rebound should be stiffer... It hit the tire hard! The left front tire did get slightly air born which was super cool! After I discovered the extremely lean plug I focused on that between rounds!

The engine is making good power, the car just needs a few tweaks.

Thanks guys. This site and it's members were instrumental in this build. The photographer, Kevin Aguilar, did a great job making the car pop! He took the still photos around dusk, the bluetooth lighting he had with his camera was insane!!!
