Hey Paul.
With your most recent Trackside setup, what ride height were you running and what is your fore/aft Balance set at?

Thanks.
D.

Thank you sir.

When you go to the 009 inner rear roll center adjusters do you change out the shock tower as well? And if you are running with that setup wouldn't you have to shave the outer hubs down too? Have you tried the one hole rear hubs? Do you think that with the T3, going to the longer rear link (outside hole on rear hub) will lock the car in too much and create even more push problems?

The link will be lower with the 09 tower so you wont have to shim on the outside as much, with T3 tower and the old Cams you will run closer to 3mms on the outside. I tested both but im not really sure right now which way i like it, but right now i have the low link set up on the rear.

3deg is normally maximum for me. normally more camber equals more traction untill you get to around three deg's then you will get less traction or it will just drive weird. with every tire their is a maximum amount and for me it is usually 2.5 or three deg. 1 to 2 is normal for me to start with. then i will go more or less in the front or rear depending if i need more steering or not. camber is the easiest way to tune the car but it is still best to do it on the chassis because with more camber i feel like you can loose forward bite.
and obviously different set ups can require more or less camber also.
but you cant go wrong with 1.5 or 2 all around.

Also on trims on the radio, Do you turn down your steering on the radio at all? Do you have a certain degree mark you like to set the car up to have? I dont have ECS Shafts and I turn my steering down quite a bit to stop chatter at the expense of being able to steer around traffic. Better hand control is needed i think

I use 100%brake, this way if i just touch the brake it locks up like an e-brake, this way its more of a brake button that i feather.
Right now i do make a living racing and do things on the side for my sponsors.

Thanks

I always set my steering at full throw (inside steering knuckle bairly touching the caster block), even when i use the standard drive shafts with the noise and bind, it really does not hurt you as bad as it sounds atall.
I use between 20 and 40% negitive steering expo, i also run negitive throttle expo in mod, 10to20% normally, sometimes more.

Oh stop being so modest and tell the truth. You write cook books for a living.

Good luck to you in Florida!
