Hi,

Run them on high traction astro with the narrow hex. Narrow hex keeps overall track width the same.

Car was better with the +4mm.

raising the C mount 4mm essentially raises the roll center, correct? If i'm not mistaken, inner camber ball stud spacers can somewhat achieve the same thing but not quiet the same.

You're not raising the C Mount 4mm....Your widening the rear inner pivot 2mm per side for a total of 4mm. You then run the 5mm rear hex instead of the 7mm to maintain track width.

I'm thinking about moving my electronics to inline. Did you guys notice a difference?

Curious about this one my self. I've wondered about the GHEA +2mm inserts for the C mount. Just didn't want to pull the trigger on $30 inserts without knowing what they will do for handling.

ran them when i first got my 5m they made the car rotate more center off but also felt weird on a not super high bite surface. so i only ran them on very high bite surfaces. only get them if you run on that type of surface imo

Any help/ suggestions much appreciated.

Looking for a good tuning base point for my motor. Running a trinity d4 with 69/30 ratio at ocrc. I'm trying to figure out what timing and gear ratio I should be in with this motor and track. It's a long shot but any help is appreciated.

I have the timing at 45 now and seems to really be a sweet spot. Any higher and the motor runs a bit too warm.
Trying to get even more punch and top end like the expert guys are doing. It clearly seems like the expert class has a few hidden tricks up their sleeves that the sportsman guys aren't in on or don't find it worth the effort? My fast lap is 22 seconds on the current layout with an average of mid 22s. Experts are in the mid 21s but I think it has to do with their motor program...

Also played with roll center by moving the inner rear ball stud spacer from 0mm to + 2 mm and it really woke the handling up around the turns. Really cool to observe these minor but noticeable changes in the cars performance.

Make sure your running the best battery kinda like the "pros" do, top of the line oiled ceramic bearings in the tranny at minimum, pucks, slipper eliminator, and the best tires and sauce. Finding the best line is also necessary along with carrying corner speed.

Have you asked the "Pro's" for advice yet? Ask Jason Snyder

Didn't say he is, he DOES run at OCRC right? He would be easier to ask a question than say Spencer Rivkin. Just sayin...
