I raced my car on Friday night and it performed better than it had ever done before, the difference between fastest and average laps was about 4/10th sec and the car was very easy to drive consistently
. I had previoulsy been using a setup more suited I think to a high traction surface, but we run on Prima Felt GT with a low to medium level of traction. Here's the setup I used.
5deg blocks, 6deg static castor, 1.5 deg negative camber
Silicone lube on kingpins (it dries fully so nothing sticks)
1 deg toe out
Jaco 2x pink, 80% additive, 42 mm dia
4mm ride height, servo up, AE 0.020" springs
5000wt oil in side dampers, forward position on pod plate
Gold spring, 30wt oil in centre shock, 1mm spacer under forward ball stud (HB Shock)
Thin L plates, stock roll centres on all three balls
Batteries fully back
Jaco Yellow, full width additive, 44.5 mm diameter
4mm ride height, pod level, 1.5 mm droop
Nosram Matrix Evo 07 (2,4,0,0) Hacker 10.5 motor.
PF Speed 12 shell
This setup (for me) was awesome, but now I have just received my 'RR' conversion, any ideas on what, if any changes I should make to the setup.
And, what is the shock lenght needed to get 1.5mm of pod droop on the RR?
Jason, this car just gets better and better, keep up the good work
