it didn't work..i taught it was the tires Ride32 the red one for asphalt..infortunatly we have to use them on carpet for the coming championship..pfff

i went back to the standard steering rack this time with the sorex 28 tires JB foam in the morning with the cold weather i started with the soft dampenin'..went from 5.4 (1.2) to soft front to 4.0 (1.2) and from 5.0(2.0) to soft rear 4.0(2.0).. and was the fastest car on the track..
but when the litlle gripp start coming i tried to stiffen a little bit the front and the car start loosing rear end at the fast sweeper..

now i think i should have gone for stiffer dampening front and rear at the same time..

i should have also checked for less toe out 1..actually i'm on 2 each side..

thanks.
Hy Guys,
thanks for the flowers

for the imposed tires the ride 36 with asphalt insert it is quite difficult to get a good setup cause these tires are not made for racing on carpet and they are quite high in shore with 36.
what you can try:
- use tires that have done already some runs and clean them very good cause the ride tire often has some graining on the rubber left. new ride's are alwys hard to drive konstant.
- heat them up befor the run so you got more grip and the insert is temperated. (recommend about 20minutes with 60-70 degres with sauced tires)
- use a little shorter upper links to keep the tires warm. (more roll in the chassis.
- close your front toe to 1 or 0,5 each side

when your back is spinning arround so try a little harder oil (2000) and also a little less drop at the back 4-4,5 front still at 6. This will calm your back but you will loose a little sterring. but i think a car that is understeering a little is easyier to manage as a oversterring car.

last recommandation and its the best i think is have fun ...it's only one race on carpet and all the others are on asphalt ...so so your best. Your improved yourslf a lot over the last races and congrads for your third place on the last one in Longwy

kind regards Tom

You might want to consider the Eastcoast Bodies Tune Mazda Speed 6.

I have been using it all winter, on Sunday swapped it for my LTC-R at Rug Racers in the final and found the LTC-R to be too safe compared with the East Coast, the lap times were slower as well.

Thanks Tom for the reply..

i think i'll try test the shorter links, and then reconsider my setup
around 1 toe out, play with the droop and try to heat a little the tires..
check my diff oil and get it to 2000 cst.

anyway this sunday me and my country folks comin' to see you at Longwy...
your advices made me improve so i only can say thanks mister..

some talkin' about slip angle..
that some tires need less or more ackerman..

with my ride32 with high sidewalls, do i need more or less ackerman??


thanks.

Hi Freddy,

Do you use green loctite on your 10x6x3mm wheel axle bearings ? I've noticed over time the wheel hubs no longer fit tight around the bearings producing less consistency. I've been told Steen uses loctite on all the bearings.

If anyone has an opinion on this I'd like to hear it.

( btw, I have yet to try the 1500 cst oil in the rear gear dif , I wanted to do a back to back comparison but I simply ran out of time to make the change , I partially spun out off power again so I could have been even 1 second faster, yet I still managed to re-set the track record by 2 seconds )

Hi Jake

No, I don't use any loctite around the bearings. I just check the play from the drive axle between wheel axle and hub(bearing). In the Kit are enough spare shims to reduce it.
I also think that the green loctite is to heavy. You will have problems to get the bearings out again. :-)

I would advice using Loctite 603 for this application.
It's basically made for retaining bearings in bores. Just use one drop per bearing and it should retain the bearing put you're also able to push it out by hand or using a little heat.

You can also use loctite 641 which has less strength but in nitro cars the bearings come loose again when using this one.

Thanks for your reply Freddy and DS motorsports,
I'll shim out the axle ( if needed ), thanks. Also I may try loctite 603 to see how affective it is with our hubs, and see how difficult it is to remove. Will report back when a bearing fails. Hopefully it'll be a while

Cheers,

Jake D.
