than on the front;
30 w shock oil
inner mount on wishbones for shocks
inner most hole on damer sty for the dampers
1 degree - camber
0 degrees kick up
30 w shock oil
inner mount on wisbone for shocks
inner most hole on damper stay for dampers
0 degrees anti squat
upper arm on lower mount on hub
i also took the front and middle chassis braces off
use front diff.
this is a very good set up
I'm also curious whether this would work on a bumpy track.
I used to run red springs all around; I used graphite EVO arms in front and shaved TA04arms/2deg. rear hub. I was thinking that the soft srpings will make the car track better over the bumps. I also thought the soft front springs + front one way = more roll, better steering.
At that time, I was working on MCrisp's advice : Softer front springs + less front droop = more on power steering. Your setup setup reflects this very theory and I was a stout believer of it
Then I tried swapping in a yellow spring in front, red springs at the rear. I got more steering. I'm started to get confused.
I swapped the red front springs and immediately found it less satisfying.
I'm working on this style of driving:
When I approach a corner at higher speed, I decrease throttle at about 1 ft away from the corner ( to transfer some weight in front) then start to steer. IMO this would give me more traction for steering. On mid Corner, I start to gradually increase speed. I try to accelerate hard without going too wide. Once I punched hard on throttle at mid corner and the car drifted just enough to line itself out of the corner. I like it.
There is a part in the track where a wide 180deg turn is followed by a tight hairpin. On the hairpin, I found that I can put 100% throttle and still follow a tight line with the EVO2. This happens with RED/YELLOW front and RED rear springs. With my old TA03, I had to apply 50% throttle on this part. I think this is where the front one way really comes to play. I haven't tried this with a spool.
