Looked good.  I too want to hear about the shuffle steering, I have been told that is what you should do.

the problem with shuffle steering the way I do it is that you loose a sense of what direction the wheel is pointing.
If you start to slide a bunch it hard to know where straight ahead is.

somehow I make it work. It's bit me a few times (1 every 100 runs?).

Just modify the steering ratio. That's easy right?  :lol:

Another great video!  I went to a BMW Driving event and got schooled by Johnny Rutherford's son.  He said "No" to the shuffle steer.  But this was several years ago, so maybe the thinking is different now. :idk:

Nice run!   :thumbs:

Instead of making a new thread I'll bump this one.

As many of you know I'm going to F-Prepared this year (think 2350 lbs, lots of power and sticky rubber).

So I have a bunch of stuff I won't need for sale.
Let me know what you're interested in and I'll give you a quote!
Volume discounts! ;)
