Sorry I'm a little off topic Can any of you guys help me out with a good setup? I'm running rubber tires on a ultra smooth carpet track. I'd like the car to be close to neutral but with a little oversteer. I have looked at setup sheets on the ae site but I don't know what is good.

Start with Barry Baker's setup for the US Touring Car Champs at Trackside Hobbies/Milwaulkee. You probably won't have to make any changes to it. It works really well.

Proficar, TFB an adult book store you can't say the full track name in public, it's forbidden

GoFaster, get the BRP hingepins, strong + inexpensive

MikeWebb, i like the motor cut out and heatsink mod, but what are the holes under the rear hingepins for?

Last year I caught a piece of debris and it screwed up my Rear Tranny and my motor and speed controller. I cut the holes there so that any objects that fall in there near the drive axles would hopefully fall through.

The Rock I caught in it last year seized up the drive train and smoked my motor and speed controller.

BIGDON18: Here are a few more pics of the chassis ALMOST finished. A little more finish prep and battery tape slots, ill be content. I didnt go in as deep as some i have seen, im thinking i can make up the weight difference elsewhere, without adding weight for the finished product. I just couldnt see chewing all that bracing away, so i took away as much as i could that still allowed the center bracing at the front and the rear of the "battery box" to be intact, and let the battery in towards the centerline within this guideline. My sheet graphite hasnt come in, so i am taking this into consideration for flex control. Anyways, here they are... sorry it took so long.

Enjoyed watching you at Trackside...Great Run

I do have a question however. Most of the time I run stock (foams on carpet), do you feel that in general the car is faster in stock with a stiffer setup as compared to the setups you guys run in Mod? It would seem to me the mod cars need more side and forward bite whereas a car running stock would benefit from stiffer settings that allows the car to be more "free" in the corners.

Thanks for your time!!

Actually i think the setup from mod to stock is close, There are a few changes . I know running 19t at trackside made me realize that the car was VERY HARD to drive in 19t but in mod the car was very stable and easy to drive. In 19t the car over rotated most of the time so i think if i just ran 19t i would have made the car easier to drive. Sometimes stiffer is not faster.. Matter of fact we are going softer and softer . I think stock would be close to some of the setups we ran 1 or 2 yrs ago.. Purple springs all around .. 70-50 wt oil .. small front bar or no front bar.. F block in the rear with a 3+2 block .. 4 degree's caster a f+0 in the front ..Some of those things i would try...


Also i know this seems weird.. But alot of times stiffer gives you more traction....

Let me know ...

Mike
