Never got the chance to say it in person, Congrat to TY for the strong finish in the final, he display an amazing driving. If he keep this up, he could be faster than Hara. But this I could say for sure, Hiro did a amazing job coming up with the setup, The TCX is an "GOOD" car, and TY just proof it this weekend.

Yes, there was a 2mm shim under the ball studs.
We also tried the 3mm shims on rear sway bar rods in Q3. It was good too but overall Ty ran no sway bar in the rear.

Thanks,

One last question. What were the top plate settings: Stiffest, Softess, Front or Rear Stiff, etc?

I noticed the setup sheet doesn't have an option to show this particular setting. Maybe it can get revised to record this setting?

Hello,

Ty ran with all screws on the top deck.
I will see what i can do for the top deck flex adjustment on the setup sheet.

Thanks,

I note on Ty's set up the spacers for ackermann effect have been removed, what is the effect of removing these?

Taking out some spacers on the crank gets less ackerman. We tried many different but 0 spacer was the best this time. Please note that this adjustment also depends on what kind of front arm sweep you have on the car.

Thanks,

What's the fastest/easiest way to get at and change the ackerman spacers?

Do you think that's because it was a large, fast, sweeping track layout?

That layout wasn't sweeping compared to previous designs they had there!
