Hi all - Also posted on
Thanks for all the help on this car!
I finally got it running this past Wed night and had massive Push on power. This was with a 8 pound Center spring and a 1.2mm SP12M FE spring. Basically I could drive straight while turning full right.
I firmly believe the geometry is way off with my build of this Corally FE.
I noticed the following;
With the FE assembled per instructions and with 42mm fr tires I bottom out the spring collar on the damper tube leaving the spring unloaded and causing ride height issues. 2ndly, With the 2mm spacer below the damper tube removed I can get spring loaded but my ride height goes way up above 7mm with all shims under the steering block. The camber at this position without outer springs adjusted is almost 0.
There must be something I am doing fundamentally wrong.
3rdly, how can you seperate the 12X FE springs when they make 3.0, 3.25, 3.5, 3.75 and 4.0 turns? Whats the secret?
Thanks in advance
