Last weekend I had some good success with the RR, but had some questions.
The setup is:
Ride height 3.5 - 4mm
Caster is at One shim in front and one in back on the 5Deg block
About 1.5- 2.0 Neg Camber
Laydown Servo so I have some toe in on compression
Fronts trued/worn down to 1.6 or so
.22 linear springs
#3 Sure Lube on the kingpins
Compound - Lilac
Batteries all the way back.
Center shock at the tall front mount position
50wt in the Siliva shock, gold spring
Sure Lube #3 (Green?) in the tubes.
Thin flex plates with the forward mount in the rear (stiffer)position
Center height 4mm
78 Spur/45 Pinion (17.5)
Ride height 4mm
~ 1mm droop, maybe less
running tires trued/worn to 1.7
Compound: CRC Gray-Low
Body Parma Speed 8.
So yesterday we were running out second week on the same layout. So traction was "OK" starting and fairly consistent but it was still low bite for the first race. On that low traction run, my car was fantastic. I set the fastest lap and average laps of the entire day and nearly lapped the entire field (and I am not a great driver!!) The car started to push slightly toward the end but that was fine. the fronts started to push because they fuzzed over.
Then as the qualifiers happened and the main came, the traction went up, and I had an issue with the car starting to traction roll or pick up a rear wheel in corners. So what I did was just didnt coat the fronts with traction compound much (inner 1/3) and the traction rolling went away.
But what I am fighting wiht is by the 8 minute mark I have fuzzed over the fronts and rears by the main. I am looking for any insight in how to avoid the fuzz problem? Is it a driving style thing? or how the grip comes up and how I throw it through the corners?
For the qualifiers after I went down the sheet. My first qualifier kept me high enough to start 2nd in the main, but an electonics issue knocked me back in the (reciever turned off or locked up after driving over a plowdisk).
I still had fastest average laps of most anyone at the track in 1/12th.. Just lost all traction by the end and couldnt claw back.
