In low grip / bumpy conditions, the 'lite' chassis or the heavier original chassis?

Besides the "Ray Munday setup guide", any other tips for success with the mid motor car on low grip?

Go to tires are blockades rear and ribbed front, so we're not dealing with a modern high grip clay track.

Do the brass C/D suspension mounts work well? Make the car easier to drive?

4 gear transmission is better for low grip?

If it's really that low grip, adding weight under the battery helps a lot, like 50-100g, 4 gear, 3 hole pistons, low oils.....but even better is running it in rear motor.

Not in all 4 corners just the Front end it was on medium high traction and it was a ton of turn in to much made the Rear end come out on exit.

so really all you did was change the anti squat. you could of done that with a pillow swap.

what iam thinking is lowering the cg and dog bone plunge.

No I left the anti squad alone just tried out the 1mm spacers on the camber link on the shock tower.

I run the stock suspension blocks .


Cant say I had a issue with dog bone plunge lowering the cg a laydown transmission would do the most or a lower roof body .

I posted this on the b6 thread but didn't get a lot of response....any help here?

Hey guys, could use some advice here. I will be running on a carpet off road track but it's not ozite, it's a slightly looser nap home improvement store carpet. To further complicate the set up equation, we are required to run Primes or Smoothies. The track is on the smaller size...think 12-13 second laps. The overall message is that it is far lower traction than carpet with pins and staggers. The question: would I be better off to run a b6 or my old b5m (it's a championship edition so I have gullwing arms, 3 gear, a gear diff, etc) set up for carpet in this situation. Or would I even be able to tell a real difference in this situation? Thanks everyone!

The same wheels/tires will fit either car so I would get the right tires and run your b5. If your happy and/or competitive with it, keep it. If it is off the pace get to a b6.

Hi Jordan,

If you are running on that kind of track, I recommend the std (heavy) chassis, brass c at least (makes a huge difference). If the layout is point and shoot and you need forward traction, 4 gear and brass D help. If its flowing, you generally only need brass C.

Any questions let me know.

Ray

Can't say I have but it should just raise the roll center. You would also need to keep an eye on drive shaft plunge.

I would say just bradd c and aluminum d. Brass d can make it wash out in corners since the weight is too far rearward. Plus it'll save a couple $ for tires!
