Yeah, I'd agree about caster shims. I run a double set of them on my supercharged rotary kit car. Steering is very stable and predictable out to just shy of 150 m.p.h. (about 240 k.p.h. to you). Personally I think it is more about aerodynamics past where you are now....the bug is a brick in that department. Even my slick kit car starts incurring lift under the front end gradually when I go past 140 m.p.h.

Could anybody help me with front axle.
What Camber and toe-in should I try to get it stable over 200km/h ?
Last year there were no problems but now with 5cm narrowed beam its awful eaven with 180-190km/h :S
It had zero camber when I tried and zerow toe in now it should be 2 degrees negative camber and minimal toe in but haven´t tried it yet with higher speeds. On 1/8th mile it seemed to be a bit better but next event is 1/4th
I have to add that I have bouth wheels conneckted with bar and from steering box comes only 1 bar to left wheel.
There's a thread in suspension and handling that discusses what to do with aerodynamics.

You should also look into this.

Got it running on nos. Can´t say with how big shot because I had only 1 jet and I had to drill it bigger. Its around 1.2mm at the moment.
There are some issues with NOS...It like peaks on first second with alot larger amount than it can keep constantly...You can notice it dynoghraph where I pushed the button on different speeds but holded it on on each run till end.

There were an event yesterday. Unfortunately I pushed it too far and made insane wheely and hurt my back on landing....there are some body deformation marks too. minor folds near door hinges. I hurt my back. They tried to hospidal me but I was so close to 10s pass what I´ve been waiting for so long. After an hour I was able to make 1 more pass but I was really scared out of wheely and decided to add alot of tire pressure and go without burnout.....and then it happened:

Don´t mind about little top speed and high 200m speed because I did´t want to change gear and rised the rev limiter and pushed it to 7600 and it was still in limiter with third gear about a half sec. Nitrous was hold on from start of the second gear till end.

Car is for SALE for 15k€ :D
If I get some better pics of it, I´ll add it to finish, swedish and german pages for sale....just for getting some finance to start another and quicker build. It need a wheelybar or moving some heawy stuff to front and it makes mid 10 passes all day long with that same safe setup. If you wand there are some room for some extra with NOS.

They are not wrinkles. They are character lines. :twisted:

Our Third and last event on this year is over.
Little lower 60ft what was 1.50
Little higher top speed 207km/h
and now we were able to hit 10.9 but not going faster than 10.8 like last time.

Broke my first half shaft on first day and got replacement audi halfshaft for 10€ quite quickly.
I was on the first place in our class elliminator table.
On the next morning I made 10.90 and my class index was 10.90 I was really happy. Went to quarter final with good feeling.
In next start the second halfshaft broke and I went abit over middle line :(

But Im still happy because This is ideal car for this 10.9 class and getting really tough shafts is not a problem and it is not an expensive mod.

I have no experience with wheelybar at all :S

If you notice, you see it pulls to left on burnout and when I start too

Look some more in facebook :) https://www.facebook.com/WhlsUP

Could anybody help me to get a better 60 Ft?
All it can make is only 1.5s but it does it in any position....with no wheelybars, with high wheelybars, with low wheelybars.....with 5000 5500 6000 65000 launch .....its always 1.5 :S

How far up should rear wheels move to body for a good start? I added some Comp. to shocks and now it moves 2 times less but still pulled up the nose without wheelybars. How high should be wheelybars to get some help from them? so it rises front wheels about 5cm?
Is it correct that moving stuff from rear to front would help me up because I could start without wheelybars with lower tire pressure? Is it correct that I should keep tire pressure so low that it pulles wheels up as much as possible?

With 1.0 BAr - no wheely with 0.8 makes wheely sometimes....when I get them hot.....0.6 should pull nose up every time I think.

Thanks for your help

Withouth wheelybars. 0.8bar with normal burnout with more CR on schocks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vhuZk68uSs

with soft shocks and wheelybar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8NB9JIia4Y
