That is what I would do.

It had to be just right. Did you ever hear the story about Goldilocks and the three bears?

Got one, thanks for the help.

The only issue with that site is I cannot put my correct address in. I live in Japan, but I have an APO address which is a military address. I ordered though that site when I lived in Germany and it was a pain in the A$$ and it took 2 weeks to receive my stuff. Hoping some one in the US has one they want to let go, but thank you.

Im after a little help.

I have an Evo and im struggling with lift off oversteer on fast sweepers. The setup up is the Stock carpet setup apart from the top links are one hole in (shorter top links) due to them being the mounting holes for the gearbox/bulkhead mounts and 3000 rear diff oil.

The class im running is 13.5 blinky on Ride REX30 tyres using LRP top grip 3 additive applied 25 minutes before the race with full additive on the rear and 3/4 on the front.

Any help would be great.

Cheers Michael

Thanks for the setup Max, I just have a coule of questions. I havent got the aluminium chassis so can I use the same settings and how do you use the 3rd hole in on the top camber links when there is a counter sunk screw there?

The countersink in the bracket is recessed. Shims will key into the countersink.

Thanks. Ive not built the car so learning as I go along.

One more question sorry. What effect do the top links have when they are different lengths, I understand that it sets the caster but what effect does it have on roll. Like if you changed the link length on a conventional car.

As on the front I can match moving both links into the same postion but on the rear without the option part for the rear front link I cant match the rear rear link. Hope that makes sense.

Cool

The car is already complicated.... Don't make it worse, and build it by the book first, and then try different link positions.....wowww......

Any of the setup sheets from IIC available yet from the Awesomatix gods?

Also I was looking at Hanulec's sheet from the IIC warm-up at Horsham, any chance those spring/damper settings are reversed on the sheet? Trying to make sense of why it works but it looks like a very soft setup with only 40.xgF/mm stiffness front and back.
