Agree very much. 6xST09 is the best I have found. Tried lots of variations (I've got 7 or so topdecks all cut differently) and found a cut deck mounted solid was not as good as a floating uncut deck. It provides lots of initial flex which gives great turn in, especially in slow, tight corners, but locks out after flexing a certain amount and then acts like a stiff car in the fast sweepers, which provides cornerspeed. (Well that's my story, and I'm sticking to it!)

Another little weak spot cured with cone flywheel




A do it yourself excercise, rear downforce on wheelhubs




HB Subaru C, best compromise for me

I can't understand how it can work... Does this system replace the original supports? If they are additional support, how is possible that the body is not preventing the rear train to work properly? I mean, when you accelerate the chassis is going closer to the ground and your additional supports are pushing up the body... How to you fix the body in the rear?

Looks like he's increased his unsprung weight by having the body supported by the hubs, but downforce won't increase anyways. With air pressure pushing down on the body when its attached to the chassis in the rear in the normal way, the suspension and tires still have to push down on the track with the same force to hold the body up. No increase in downforce. Increase in unsprung weight. Not good.

Default Setups

Nothing major a few mm here and there . Both cars are torn apart and starting with at21s so should have some if I ever get a chance to go to the track. My job is short handed so we have mandatory 16 hour days and no end in sight.

Looks like 9 of the 63 drivers pre-signed up for the Halloween Classic / Cleveland, OH are Awesomatix runners. Pretty exciting!!

I'm surprised no one posted the A700 results from the race of champs this weekend. Gee won stock easily, but you're driving in mod was impressive keeping a certain national champ at bay during qualifying and most of the mains!
