Spares, one of everything from the awesomatix usa suspension spares bundle
i like lowered arm balls - at21s - too!

if folks have suggestions on better ways to share this info please speak up. the racerlog wiki pg is close, but not perfect. the AwesomatixUSA parts bundles try to help folks decide things too.

for 2015 i think the parts at AwesomatixUSA will get "categorized" by a given car model "standard parts" and "optional parts". the existing Awesomatix site lumps a lot of the new stuff under "optional parts".

Aluminum tends to bend a little more on impact vs. titanium.

Unless it's a fresh layout and traction is extremely low, I always run a topdeck on my Evo... but I'm still running a carbon chassis. Those running aluminum chassis may beg to differ.

Top deck helps improve corner speed -- carbon or alloy chassis

There are no detailed pictures yet, but the link below has the images from round 1 ETS. You really can not tell much, but the screws on the back of the dampers are gone.

Mike,

Thanks for the diagram, it will be interesting to see what the consensus among racers will be on silicone oil weights and SPR01/SPR01S springs for carpet/asphalt.

But in what class...

We've tried some very different settings with the existing dampers and found some cool results. I was never able to get the spr01 to work.

I'd describe my current stock tc settings has having more pack/dampening (big A gaps) and very light spring (type 2 spr01s with big B gaps).

We will use 500 cst oil in the car kit's dampers.
This is a good initial point to keep A-size settings within 0..3,5mm range at most conditions. It corresponds to ~350...500 cst oil range for traditional TC shocks.
Full 0...7mm range for A-size settings of our dampers (with 500 oil inside) corresponds to ~350...650 cst oil of traditional TC shocks.

Stock and modified class.

Hard spring are always faster than the soft (more cornerspeed)
