Just wanted to start a new thread for any questions about Kisbey motors or KSG cars.

Congrads to Kisbey/KSG Factory driver Gary Hamiliton who just TQd and won the Norrca nats out in Cali. 4 of the top 5 were Kisbey/KSG powered!! Good job guys!!

The KSG car comes with an adjustable center shock mount, what is the effect gained by moving the mounting point either higher or lower? Is the swaybar kit helpful on most flat tracks? Would you reccomend running rear steer @ the Macon track? What do you accomplish by putting a spacer under the front pivot ball of the t-plate? Looks like I am going to be your only (Team Blue) running partner in 19t @ Echeconnee so maybe we can help each other out a little.......

Raising the shock mounting hole up will make give the front end of the car more bite by transferring more weight to the front tires.

The sway bar kit works real good on flat tracks that are slightly bumpy. It allows you to run softer springs to get over the bumps better but it doesnt allow the car to dump over on the RF and either push from being collapsed or loose from too much bite.

I would run rear steer at any track that you apex the straight aways pretty hard...meaing you usually dont really drive the car straight.

I have always been told that puting shims under the front ball with give you more forward traction off the corner. Ive never really noticed a difference though!!

See ya this weekend!!

Fish keep getting away, think I am going to try golf now... I have also thought about becoming a Jockey, I am down to 165 pounds but I think the 6 foot part will keep me out of the KY Derby. Come on over anyway we can still go out on the boat!! Quit work and make the wife go out and make some $$, worked for me, lol, just don't tell her I said that.

Good job with this thread, nice to see someone telling the truth!
