On Sunday there was a club race where I TQed had the best 5min run and lap record (faster than 1/10 ic cars)

I've also posted a short video. I start to push after the 3rd lap until later on I step on a paddle of water and spin off bigtime!
In the video I run old tyres and laptimes are around 20.3 - 20.5. Next day I did 19.7 on new tyres.
John, what setup did you use during this race?

I need to make some measurements on my droop settings and will post it soon.
Briefly I will mentioned that again I ended up using ball diff, full tight by hand force (I am not Arnold but it still is quite tight) and 1.000 cst Hudy oil. The diff has stayed consistent and smooth after more than 20 runs. It is incredible.

Std shocks and springs of original car, L chassis, Motor moved forward by adding 3mm shims between motor case and motor mount.
More details on the set up sheet.
Track had medium traction yet the car never felt unstable.

Thanks Jake. Forgot the race was on LIVERC. At some point in that race I decided that race pace wasnt important anymore. Plenty left in the tank to turn fast laps if needed.

Setup and roll centers from John for your attention.
Please note low roll centers, floating top deck, longer wheelbase, forward battery position and asymmetric front dampers.

Hi Oleg,

I've been experimenting with the rc crew chief software & I wanted to know your thoughts on setups with camber loss. I notice both John and M Dawson's setups have a small amount of camber loss, as do a number of setups for other chassis - do you think it is desirable to have some camber loss, particularly in the rear which seems most common?

Camber loss occurs in case of you are trying to move roll center more and more down.
At some conditions you can get more benefits from such very low roll center despite of some camber loss.
You can compensate this camber loss by means of the increasing of initial camber. For example in John's setup the camber loss is compensated by 2 deg initial camber.
I think that it is very important to have the optimal actual camber on the outer wheels at the stage of maximal side roll ( the stage of maximal side traction). And you can acheive this optimal camber even with the negative camber gain at correct adjustment of the initial camber.
