I think they need to change the name to the Schreffler Nationals. Always fast there. Nice job on the TQ. 20 oz steak, that is just a appetizer for him.

I start 9th in the A-main tomorrow.

I'm running the stock foam chassis with the medium rubber top deck and stock rubber wings. As for hop-ups all I run is the Alum. spool cups, all ceramic diff balls and the new axle pin holders.

Two things...

The main one is changing roll centre, a longer/more parallel link will give a lower roll centre (and vice versa). The lower roll centre will generate a bit more cornering grip at that end of the car.

The other thing it affects is camber change under compression. On an on-road car this is fairly minor, but the longer/more parallel link will cause less camber change, which may cause a little less grip at full roll, and may be a little less stable over uneven surfaces.

Roll-centre is the dominant effect of changing the camber links in my experience.
