Awesome, nice work!

Question for stock guys, does anyone run brass blocks front and rear to help lower the cg? Trying to take traction roll out of the car without buying humptys laydown, hoping AE will have one out soon.

According to AE, they told me an announcement is due very soon on the laydown car, so it IS happening!

Look at the older WWHD setups for the three gear car. I never had traction rolling issues there; however this was before sauce was needed at SRS to be competitive.

Yeah, with the level of traction now with sauced tires, its nothing like it was a year ago. Been spending some time messing with the roll centers front and rear trying to get the suspension to eat it up but I dont think my shock package is matching--the car is still getting up on two wheels, even at 18mm. My current two choices are, run less sticky tires and shoot for a moto of low 27's (26.5 is my fastest lap but the traction was right), or make it lazy coming in and run different lines to make up for it, neither of which is faster. I've only been back in it for a few weeks, but I'm already at a point where I'm at a disadvantage over guys with the laydowns, so I'm trying to find a work around.

I hope a Factory Team version with standard chassis and a few of the alloy pieces is in the works too...

If I had a B5M, and raced there still. I would look into those older 3 gear setups, OR look into Cav's and Rivkins nationals setup.

Where are you at now for setup? Springs/oil/camber links.

If you are fighting traction rolling take out some droop. Its possibly the most effective way to eliminate traction rolling without destroying the handling everywhere else on the track.

Whats with the lay down transmission? Someone give me the dummy version lol.

edit... so after a google search, apparently it just moves the parts down to lower the center of gravity?

Where are you at now for setup? Springs/oil/camber links.
Front 1.4x3 32.5 grey flat arms standard links, +1mm inside.

Rear 1.6 30 blue rear motor rams -2 inside +2 on hub

But like I said I've been changing roll centers to find something that works, but the above setup is what I generally have been running.

Mod setup vs stock setup is not even close from what I've found
