They seem to like a lot of gear and on the rug I geared them the same as the Orion based 19 turns so I will do the same for asphalt. I geared the orions at 5.5 so that's where I'm starting the Integy based motors at. 5.5-5.8 is about where I plan on keeping these motors. They also don't run as hot as the Orion cans probably due to the extra large vent holes. We'll see what happens this weekend if we are allowed to race.

The New Atlas based 19T can run in the 34-37 range for rollout with a fan on it. The older Blue based 19T can run even higher. I typically run my Atlas motors about 2-4 teeth higher than my C2's. You have to have a fan on there though or you will fade hard. My motors will typically come off around 175-190. Without the fans I have been 230-240.

Yeah. Didn't have too good of a showing last year in mod. I jumped up before I made the A in 19 turn. Looking at the competition, I'll be very happy with a top 20 this year. Always trying for the show though.

Softening the roll bar is going to make it roll more and raising roll center will make it roll less.

Right now this is as I understand it: A camber link that is parallel to the arm (raising the inner ballstud) will make the roll center lower. Making the link angled down towards the inside of the car will raise the roll center.

Raising the hinge pin above the chassis actually lowers the RC and vise versa, although most people refer to raising the hinge pin as raising the rear roll center. I've always found raising the hinge pin will make that end of the car flatter though.

Check this out though http://home.tiscali.be/be067749/58/c2/index.htm

You're dead on Weylin. Raising the roll center will keep that end flatter and you'll get less grip on that end. If you need more steering from the front end, try lowering the front roll center. If the rear is just too stuck, raise the rear roll center. And vise versa. But there should be a good balance between the two. You don't want to be too extreme on one end and not the other.

I was speaking of rasing the roll center via either lowering the camber link or spacing the blocks up. In comparison to using softer sway bars, my understanding was that either will allow the car to roll a little more. Is this correct? Thererfore i was asking which i should do first when testing. Which gives the least drastic result?

No. Raising the roll center by lowering the camber link or raising the lower pivot blocks will make the car roll less. Lowering the roll center will make the car roll more.

As far as compared to sway bars, I don't mess with sway bars too much. Outdoors, I just run the silver bars front and rear. Every time I try something other than that, it just doesn't feel right.

As for which is a more drastic change, I'd have to say adjusting roll center is a little more sensitive of an adjustment depending on how big of a change you make to it.
