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 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
