Roll Centers

With the stock chassis we are running no front riser plate. We use 1mm or 1.5mm spacers from TakeOff. The lower you go the more steering you get.

In the rear we are using 1.5mm to 2mm spacers on top of the riser plate. The higher you go the more free your rear will be.
The problem is that the front has too much bite in the mid and exit of a corner & leads to the rear getting loose on power when transistioning and i have to back off the power a bit. Lowering the front RC will make this worse surely ??

Raising the rear RC takes grip off the rear in mid and exit and that's the opposite of what i'd need as well.

Correct me if im wrong tho' but thats my understand from what ive been told by ther top guys at the club. Unless the Mi2 is completeley different to what i no or im wrong .......

Also when u lowered the front RC & raised the rear's ... was this on a high grip track .... ?

TIA Steven

looks good to bad i cant try it out!

Another great day of racing. The carpet season is underway and the MI2 was well represented in the main. 4 MI2's with the MI2 taking the Tq and the win. The spool once again proved to be faster than the oneway. I know more about the car for this carpet season compared to last year when I first received the car.
Mo has a killer set up for foams and I have a killer set up for rubber tire's. With the regionals coming up in about two weeks we are looking to have the MI2 turn some heads if they aren't already looking our way.

My carpet set up is on www.gearchart.com also. It's listed under Clint Riley

It was real stable and easy to drive. You can drive it hard into the corners and dive in on guys running a oneway. Play around with it and let me know what you think. It's basically what we run on asphalt with two changes.

On the setup - I see that you used the front riser plate, but it doesn't say anything about the rear. Did you use the stock plate on the rear too?
