Does anybody know where I can get setup sheets for the TCX for different tracks?

Hello!!

somebody tested the Top Photon universal cvd to use with rear diff SpecR?

I'm thinking to use because the hb blade is to hard to find, and very weak. and others brands sell a package with many blades, and hb sell only 1.

Hi,

What does everyone set their length of shock too ? I need to get more droop but finding the shock too short.

Thanks.

Are you using the low shock tower mounts?

No standard ones. Do the lower ones allow a lot more droop at the standard shock length ?

The low shock towers are 2mm lower, so if you keep the shock length the same, you'll have more droop.

Hi,

Do you mean keeping the roll bar level when looking from the side of the car ? So you would change the shim thickness depending on the ride height ?

Thanks.

The main reason is to move the piston further up in the shock body. this reduces the volume of oil on top of the piston, which reduces the amount of "pack". When you reduce the "pack", it makes the car roll more and generally makes the car float around the corner more.

I generally find the car rotates much harder with the lowered towers, but can make the car more unstable. This is probably due to the more aggressive weight transfer and body movements.

Give it a try and see how you like it! If you like a more stable car, the standard shock towers might be more your style.

Hi,

What sort of ride height do people run on asphalt if its bumpy ? as most of the set ups I've looked at are for smooth tracks.

I also noticed that alot of the setup sheets on the front of the car people run 2mm shim at the front and the .75mm at the rear on the arms, why is this ?

Thanks.
