RE: Antisquat.

+2 gives 2deg of antisquat -- more forward traction
0 gives LESS antisquat -- less forward traction, slightly more steering

Depending on the track surface, I always play around with the anit-sqat in the front.

For smooth tracks like SoCal i use the F-0 and for bumpy tracks like Ultimate i put the standard setting of F+2.

To me it does make a difference. Buy the option parts. In addition, you can also increase your castor with the F+2 and a company Megatech can actually take the castor up to -11 if you like.

I think those are the right numbers, dont have the car in front of me. Tony?

Yes. Associated only offers the F+2 and F-0 anti-dive, or kick-up.

The castor Associated offers are 0deg, 2deg, and 4deg. 11deg caster would be REALLY wild...

I tried f+o with 4 degree caster blocks on our very slick parking lot track this weekend. I had a ton of corner entry speed but sometimes a little too much. On med to high traction tracks i would definately like this setup.

Tony > whoops, anti-DRIVE.

regarding the -11% of Castor, someone tried in in Vegas where there is really a big sweeper and said the car was awesome. May be worth a shot to try at Ultimate. That sweeper is bigger than SoCal.

Default gear prep

Anyone here use Tri Flow or White Lightening on their gears to reduce friction? I hear some drivers do.

Holy crap 11 deg front caster block ? That'll make the car oversteer when exiting corners for sure !

My home track has banked 25 deg sweepers, the surface is kinda bumpy a bit, therefore I stick with 4 caster block and 2 kickup - that stabilizes the car on straight lines. If the 2 antisquat is installed, I can bury the throttle on the banked sweepers, the otherwise happens whenever I run with 0 deg antisquat.
