Hi Guys,
Just wanted to share some experiment i did today.
Well i got a one-way front pulley in hand and was thinking i might as well try it.
So i pop it in. Well most folks will just pop it in the front. As my belts were already flipped due to the new chassis, i pop the one-way in the rear to give it a try. Guess what. I had a lot of Fun!!!. Imagine Front Solid Spool and rear one way. The Cornering Speed is Astounding. It just need to set the rear for more grip. Maybe this might be a new trend.
Maybe someone might want to experiment this layout a bit more.

Eric Albano won 17.5. His car was good all weekend and drove excellent in the mains.

James Arluck ran the Photon and finished an impressive 2nd in 13.5. I think James held TQ through 3 rounds of qualifying.

Jesse Stark finished 3rd in open modified. He had some impressive runs, but just some bad luck in the mains.

The 2010 ROAR Nationals will be held at the same track (Norcal Hobbies). If you plan on coming we'll have a good starting setup.
I heard that the you ran rear gear diff @ Reedy?
Will TOP Racing will have those available for photon ?

Default While we are talking about springs....

Quote:
Top Racing (Spring Rate engrave on the spring)
Gamma 393 gF/mm
Gamma 367 gF/mm
Gamma 344 gF/mm
Gamma 324 gF/mm
Gamma 306 gF/mm
Gamma 289 gF/mm
Alpha 626 gF/mm
Alpha 591 gF/mm
Alpha 560 gF/mm
Alpha 532 gF/mm
Alpha 507 gF/mm
Beta 347 gF/mm
Beta 325 gF/mm
Beta 306 gF/mm
Beta 294 gF/mm
Beta 274 gF/mm
*Gamma Spring is design for rubber asphalt racing
*Alpha & Beta spring is design for carpet and foam tire racing
How do these springs differ besides their weight?

For example on my rubber asphalt car, if I was running Gamma 289 gF/mm in the rear and thought they were too light but also thought Gamma 306 gF/mm were too heavy, could I run Beta 294 gF/mm? Or does it not work that way?

That's where it starts. Then the shocks, sway bars, diff.... Just buy the kit. You'll end up saving money in the long run.

Default traction roll

Am getting traction roll on a indoor high grip asphalt track. Very 'sticky' kind of grip as they use traction additive on the track.

Have race there before with other chassis, never had traction roll.

Am using EJ's rubber set up, only change medium / high roll centres.
On Sorex 36 with C medium insert.

Tried harder springs and standing the shocks up by one position front & rear, didn't seem to help. Am now thinking I need to go with softer set up & more roll / droop.

Has anyone had same issue, would welcome suggestions.

I have no interest in buying the kit. Really just want springs.

I would suggest trying my setup I posted back in mid march. The higher you go on the roll center and the stiffer you make the back(Standing the rear shock up) the more your car is going to wanna flip.

Maybe shorten the links to middle hole if you arent already and go lower in the rear roll center to med low if you dont wanna lower your front RS.
