Probably relates to this:

Little to no fluid will pass over the edges of the pistons. It will mainly be focused through the piston holes. They seem like they fit a smidge tight, but DO NOT sand the pistons. They smooth out when oil is introduced into the shock .

6 hole pistons are great on tracks where there is a good mix of different kinds of corners. They let the car flop around a little more at low speed, and pack up really good in high speed chicanes and such. They seem really effective on higher grip tracks!

Dear Hiro!

Can You please let me know of the FR and RF block Atsushi used? My assumptions are FR 1 and RF 0, but his (setup) sheet is a little different then the other 2.

Actually, we have been trying this shock setups with many different suspension setups combined for long time and been getting very good results. We have also tried this on Ty Tessmann's car in some of qualify rounds of the US nationals in New Jersey and kept trying more and more to make the improvement after that.

As for the suspension blocks that AH used were 2pcs 1deg blocks on FR and 1deg on FF. Sorry, the setup sheet was missing this part.

Thanks,

Tamiya hubs allow you to have a slightly shorter or slightly longer upper camber link. Depends on what hole in the hub you use.

Thanks Hiro, I guess thats something I will have to try.

The first 3 setups all seem to be pretty different from each other.
I look forward to seeing Andy's setup also.

Hiro, a few questions:
- what is the rear toe in in Andy's set up? 3 deg as usual?
- how many mm under rear pivot (FR RR)?
- I noticed Andy reduced the shocks lenght to 62.0 and 62.5mm why? Maybe to reduce the oil pack during the open corners?Sorry if i'm saying something totally wrong

Thank you so much!!!!
