My carpet setup as it is now:
FF-block: D outwards
FR-block: B outwards (gives 1deg arm sweep to smoothen out the steering)
Rollcentre: .75mm underneath FF and FR blocks
Camberlinks: middle position with 3.25mm underneath
Shocks: 4th hole from the outside on shocktower, hole 2 in suspension arms according to setup sheet
Steering knuckle shimm: underneath steering knuckle
Ackermann: 1mm on steering plate
Bump steer: 1mm
FR-block: B inwards
RR-block: D outwards
Rollcentre: .75mm underneath FR and RR blocks
Camberlinks: middle position with 2.5mm underneath
Shocks: 4th hole from the outside on shocktower, inner hole suspension arms
Stabi: 1.2mm (Tamiya)
Gear diff: 700wt
500WT front and rear
Tamiya white front, Tamiya blue rear
SP topdeck mounted.
Using 'old' TF6 upperbulkheads since they're a tiny bit lower then the SP ones.
Solid suspension arms holders used front and rear.
I'm going out for a day of practice tomorrow. Made a couple of changes to the chassis itself:
I fitted front bulkheads in the rear of the car for more even flex. This requires two extra holes in the chassis to mount them the right way. Just mounted an old chassis backwards on my current chassis and drilled the holes:
Another idea I'm going to try is a different way of mounting the servo to 'copy' the current Yokomo, Tamiya, Xray etc. servo mount idea. Since we have no such part (yet) available I worked on a sort of similar solution while using the regular inner and outer servo mount. I've raisen the inner mount 1mm just by adding a shimm underneath, then on the outer mount I justed a rubber shimm instead so the servo can not move back and fort, but chassis is able to flex. To keep the servo from beeing pressed down I use a screw in the other hole of the mount that is very close to touching the chassis. When I flex the chassis now it seems to work really well and the desired movement of the chassis underneath the servo (which was previously impossible) is clearly noticeable. My solution:
Some other things I'm going to try is a gear diff with just two gears in it. Matthijs came up with this idea for a smoother operating diff which could be benifitial when racing pro-stock. John has been testing with the gear diff running in high position to keep the rear of the car from pushing as the car tends to do this on carpet tracks. I'll definitely give it a try too and let you guys know how things went.
