Default Traction roll

I noticed alot of foam carpet setups uses the low roll centers. Since the low roll center allows the weight transfer to travel further, does this bring on a traction roll condition. I would have thought a high roll center would be more suitable in this application. Can anyone explain.

Low roll centers allow the car to roll more in corners and thus, makes it less likely to traction roll. People just use swaybars to counter the roll effects.

Team AE.....A spool is going to give you more exit steering not less....a spool will give you less turn in steering.....and your corner speed should be up because you can get on the gas sooner through the corner to pull the car through it.

On tight tracks with lots of close switchbacks, i recommend keeping a diff in. The spool will give you more exit steering, but if you don't have lightning reflexes you will turn too much on exit and make your laps slower. Spools are good for tracks with flowing turns and big sweepers, like TCHR.

Default Tire width

With the AE hex, a wider tire can be used on the XXXS. What tire width works the best and is this width consistence front and back.
Mixing different width example 26mm front and 28mm rear seems to make the car feel somewhat twitchy.

Causing quite a stir, we'll have to settle this on the track

Kevin K - I agree with you on the spool... exactly the same results I had last weekend. The track I was testing the spool on didn't have too many sweeping turns - mostly 180's and chicanes... so suffice it to say, the spool wasn't the hot setup for me.

Da4head - So far I have liked 25mm up front and 28mm in the rear running mod on Ozite, and 28mm all around for stock... and yes, with the AE hex's you can run the 28's up front, but at full throw, you are still going to hit the shock retaining clip on the bottom...

out - wilde

JLMG - The G+ comes with the 90 tooth 48 pitch spur....

Tips - make sure to tap all holes on the car before putting the screws in ... Take all sharp edges off of the chassis with a file...

JLMG1971, I've just finished building it last night. You have a great car. For tapping, I've used a screw that came in a tool bag, I think instruction will tell you to use it.
My shock collar(black plastic) was bit too tight so I am getting a aluminum ones. Other than that, it was easy and I've build it in no time.
Enjoy!

Default HELP WITH CERAMICS BEARINGS

Hi Guys,
I am thinking of buying a set of ceramic bearings from Acer racing for my XXX-S GP.
1. Do you think that i will understand the ceramics bearing in the track?? ( i mean i will notice a better rolling or a better accelaration, or a better eficiency on the battery???).
2. Do you think that i will save some grams from the total weight of the car??
3. Do you think that it worth buying these kind of bearings or go for the teflon ones???


Thanks a lot guys

Harris

JLMG, do yourself a favor and pick up the 128 tooth 64 pitch gear/pulley (it's the blue one).
