On the chart I have, Xray white is 15.27 (rated as 17.5), Light Blue is 18.35 (rated 20), Blue 20.00 (rated 22.5), Dark Blue 23 odd (rated 25). Hence why the car feels safer on the xrays, as theres a bigger rate difference (3lb versus 1lb) between the springs.

Anyway, just got back from the track today. TQ and won both legs, so good day. Progressively went up on springs rates, now on xray blues and light blues. Also switched to 3hole/60wt/no foam in the shocks.

Still using the 415 blocks (D/D f, XA/D r), 0mm under the front blocks, 0.5mm under the rear. Also used 2mm under the rear hub camber link hole.

Next time out I think I'm gonna try D/C on the front, seem to be lacking a bit of mid corner steering, should help that. Might also try the Evo4 blocks all round.

Later
Ed

its funny reading your posts. for a long time my starting setups where at least 1mm under rear blocks, usually 2mm. Nice to see some ppl waking up to the stability vs grip factor.

Could you explain what your take is on spacing the front or rear blocks higher is?

Up until last weekend, I had hit a bit of a wall performance-wise with my Evo. I have done most of my fast times with it, but my very fastest time was still done with my old MSX.

I finally beat that time over the weekend, but I'll admit I probably haven't done as much experimenting with the suspension blocks as I'd have liked.

So far my car seems to steer a little better when the front block is raised 0.5 - 1.0mm. So I'm assuming that raising the rear block would increase grip?

I usually race on a low-grip bumpy concrete track, and oddly enough I've found that running the car with stiffer springs (White front, Blue Rear) has actually made the car quicker through the corners

don`t mean to be a arse with my reply
i had a evo 4 for ages done 1 bevel gear that`s it
it`s all in the shimming my man

as for my evo 5 raced at benfleet with the sarfend guy`s one block broke he`s cyclone by hitting the same corner in a chicane mine just bounced off
maybe it`s because there is a bit of play in the sus bit`s ,thus takes impact better

never had a problem ,had more things go wrong with me cyclone then this evo 5

Sounds like you need to adjust your end points.... I know that with the my radio (Sanwa Gemini 2), I have 120% on the left, 95% right. This means I have the same amount of lock side to side.

Try that. The noise will just be the CVD's, they'll always chatter at large angles (it because of the design, their not true CVD's).

HiH
