Ok this weekend i am meant to be running an old CRC on low grip carpet. Traction additive is not aloud at the meeting but i can apply plenty until then.
Basically i need your help with a few areas that i dont know anything about (im a touring car driver)
I have a set of tyres on the car that are quite high profile. Will this be ok? I have been coating them in additive at the rear every now and then. Is this correct?
2.) Rear pod ride height. As far as i can see there is only around 2mm ride height at the very back of the car. I am aware this point will not move with suspension travel but will the tyres wear 2mm in around 5 runs (on low grip carpet)
3.) The two damper tubes
Do you just grease these up and that is it? they are not meant to be sealed or anything?
4.) Small springs on the center plate.
There is a screw on the top that adjusts the height of the spring. i have them set so when the car is stood the springs are just touching the balls.
I have the standard small diff on the car and i need to know how tight to set it. Should i set it so it just slips a little? I tried racing an older pan car and as soon as the rear wheels start to loose traction the car just spins. I have however been tld the diff is not designed to slip so :S If i did set it loose i would not nail the throttle i would still feed it in slowly so i didnt burn the diff out. What do you recommend?
Any other things you can see that are wrong please tell me.
The files are all in this folder.
I didnt want to make you lot have to scroll through them all to read thhe post underneath. lol
