I was running white Springs in the front and 32.5 all around. Lightening the oil and stiffening the spring helped wake the car up. The car was stable and easy to drive, but seemed lazy. Changing the shocks and camber adjustments really allowed me to carry more corner speed. Didn't need to stab the brakes to kick the rear around. Played with diff settings to get the right amount of rotation too.

For the majority its best to keep link length related to camber gain and link attitudes to roll center.

It did keep the rear from rolling in the corners. When I went to the inside hole, or shortest possible location, the rear was noticeably flatter and changed directions much quicker. I stayed with the shorter link because this is a high bite track (running electrons in mc sauced with wd40). With the longer link the car seemed lazy but easy to drive. I also had to use more brake to get it to turn, so I was able to get faster laps with a shorter link. That was what I noticed from running it.

In the front I'm running inner hole on both the tower and caster block. Didn't move the link but did take out the 2mm spacer. That tightened up the turning radius of the car and it helped the rear with changing direction faster. Just some observations. I think the best thing people can do is not be afraid to try different things. It's just one run: don't like it, change it back. Real world running does much more good than pages of talking about theory.....

Awesome, now I've got a bunch of setup advice for a track I and 90% of the US will never race on. What about tires, because that's the other 90% of any setup...

I can confirm that they were round. Possibly black as well. Still waiting on confirmation for that

Truth x1,000,000

It's nice to know the theory though and why certain adjustments do what they do though.

We'll if you actually read what I wrote you would see that I said i was running wd40 sauced electrons. And i wasn't giving advice, just saying I did some driving and this was my observations. Which is more than you're contributing too right about now.

Sssshhhhiiibanggg I thought it was good. I'm going to try 1mm instead of 2mm on my front tower now

One thing I've tried when testing things like that is to go drastic (like going from the shortest link on the hubs to the longest back to back). Doing that makes the change more easily felt. Then I decide whether it was good or bad or too much and then may find something in the middle.
