We'll I'm back from the Nat's and struggled all week. Couldn't find a drivable setup until the last Main. EJ Evans couldn't even drive my car
. I at least had a blast with Team Purple, especially Jay Bee......Team Mad Rip in da house.
The problem was too much bite, my car wanted to dig in mid corner and spin out. I ran Pro 38s purple front/pink rears which were fine for 4-5 minutes. After that the purples would gum-up and the car would spin out. The solution which I finally went to on A3 was to run magentas up front. It would seem that that would increase steering, but in reality it didn't. Due to the density of the magentas vs purples, the magentas didn't gum-up at all. Wish I would of had a drivable car so I could of been more competative.
Here was my setup:
Magenta 42mm, Pink 43.5mm
rideheight 4mm F/R
Rear track 172mm
Olive spring/25wt, .075 T-bar
0* blocks, shimmed 2 in front, .5* camber, 0* toe
Speed 8 HD
