With 4 screws locating it, it is unlikely that it will move, but there's always room for improvement.
Erik - Yeah, I saw the gap, I just wasn't sure what you meant by twist, and where they were going to twist to. Thanks for clearing that up.

Also for the team guys what is the purpose of running more droop on one side than the other in the rear of the car. I have noticed that on the setup in the manuel for Hara's rubber tire setup.

David Joor: Thanks for the reply. I guess I was asking more about the rear end mount height being higher than the front end(drawing a line from rear to front (roll axis) would point downward). The rear was like 3mm and the front like 1mm. How does that effect the car?

Eric - I will tell him tommorow or so, just thought of it today. Must be cool to be everywhere, lucky you. I am sure you hate it though as would I, lol.

RobK - Raising the pivot blocks on carpet will free that end up a bit. I was looking for more steering so I raised the rear to allow the front to be more dominate. Oddly enough, it is usually the other way around, the front being higher than the rear. I still have more testing to do, I only got in about 6 packs or so, but it was on par already.

Hmmm...another A Main showing for the Pro4 in stock class. The past 2 wks that I've raced this car has been quite interesting. I've stripped a diff bevel gear....and punting quite a few cars that happened to fall in front of me out of nowhere. I've also cracked two rims; wow! Other than that, the car is holding up.

I do have a bit of a problem though. When running the stock setup with a slight variation it runs well in mod and in 19T with rubber tires, but in stock where every little thing counts I seem to be fighting the car. First I had a car that just didn't transition fast enough..it seemed lazy or planted. Also, I was pushing alot going into turns (probably due to the shaft drive system....little drag as opposed to belt). So I had to dial in more steering but it got harder to drive. I'm sure my problem lies in the 3 deg of rear toe. In mod I'm sure that is not much of a problem but in stock the slightest drag can hurt. The car is definitely working as my lap times are definitely on pace with the fast guys....now I just need more track time with the car..and more practice! In the mains tonight I drove a few fast laps...but now I'm thinking it might have been just the motor and batteries. One of the TC3 drivers suggested I drop my shock oil weight to 30w from 40w (LOSI OIL). That helped make the car react quicker and helped slightly in the traction dept. It seems like I'm over compensating on the other end of the car when I really should be chaning the rear end of the car by decreasing toe.

This weekend I will mount some new tires. I've been running the same set for practice and races for the last 2 months. My tires are starting to feather....NOT GOOD AT ALL!!!!! FYI: I've been running the Sorex 32s.


Proteus,

I'll be @ Socal this saturday, if you wanna work on some setups, just ask Bubbles to point me out. I think i have some (gasp) TC3-esuqe setups that may be some good starting points.

Is it that the thinner hex has 2 holes...and a hex shaped spacer with pins would give more support?.... that's what I would design....
