Default Xray t3 2011

Will your mod setup work for me in non boosted 17.5? To run 5mm of spacers on the rear hub and 2mm in front do you grind down the screw head to clear the inside of the rim? Thanks

Default ball vs. gear diff

hi paul,

just wondering your thoughts on ball diff vs. gear diff on carpet. Just started up carpet season and most people say to switch back to the ball diff....running 17.5 blinky tc class with a t2011, havent had a chance to test much with the two back to back, but was wondering what you would suggest as a good oil weight to start with using the gear diff

thanks eric lee

I have never seen a tire that reacted that way. I am used to the 2nd run being the fastest and after that performance going down...

Yup... see you at Vegas! should be fun...
I think that is a good idea. these races can be tricky because the groove is different being built up on brand new carpet so quickly, but if i had to guess i would say that in the end second run tires will be pretty good. but the year that i won i used the same set from practice to final ?

No problem

thanks

Hi Jake. I dont know what it will look like, They know not to tell me BC i would blab lol. I can only guess it will include a new chassis and top deck (we have been testing many new ones), gear diff, maybe different steering parts, maybe the new bulk head clamps. Their are many other possibilities that i have seen but that is my guess. Again just speculation.

I dont use any grease, i just coat everything in silicone oil. Silicone is not a great lubricant but i think it is ok in these situations, or atleast i have not had any faliures in the areas where i do that.

Thanks

I do think that my mod set up will work well in 17.5. whenever i slap in a 17.5 my car still drives really well. the rule of thumb is that the slower the motor the more steering the car will have, so maybe if it is edgy you can run less front camber or something.

For the camberlinks i run the Xray ball studs with the open ended ball cups, with these you can get 5mm under most wheels. Thanks

Hi Eric. I still think that the gear diff is faster on carpet, but like on asphalt it is harder to drive. If you want your car to be easier to drive i would still consitter a ball diff but you could loose a .1 on your hot lap. I normally find 2,000 in the rear to be the best on carpet so i would start their.

Default Hudy setup station

I have one on order and I have heard rumors that it is actually off + or - .05 degrees. Is that true? I think Hara mentioned it too.

Hi Paul,

Did you notice the difference between a quick camber adjustment ie camber gauge v setup station? I can see some pretty major differences when I try them both out on the car. Which method is more accurate?

Thanks
Adrian

Vazzo, always keen to find that out myself camber gauge or set up station going from set up wheels and quick gauge seems to add a deg more then a set up station.

What changes do you find the shims on the outer end of the camber links make?

Does adding more shims increase initial or mid corner steering?

I ask as I require slightly more grip at the rear and was wondering if adding and removing shims would have the desired effect.

I am already running the wider front wishbone shims and the hex's mentioned in your carpet setups.

they seem to add one extra degree then the hudy setup station and as for setting toe it seems to add 0.5 each side toe in with hudy setup station when measure with digital calipers there is abit of a diffrence.
