I think I was thinking backwards. I don't mess with castor a lot so I seem to get it mixed up sometimes which way it effects the car.
jkerr0043,

Again, I was talking about how caster affected straight line stability on a real race car. Just assuming that it's fairly similar on an r/c car.

With the 4+4 setup on my XXX-S cars, it is very stable down long straights. But probably turns a bit slower initially.

Funny thing is...My XXX-S has more potential suspension adjustments on it than my fairly straight forward formula car did. Although, some of the adjustments were easier on the real thing.

The other thing about my formula car is that I had no Ackerman at all...I put it together with parallel steering at the spindles to not scrub off speed with the front end of the car on sweeping (flat out) turns at Laguna Seca and Sears Point (now Infineon).

Thanks for making me flex my brain cells...

lol, thats nice man!

I'm gonna give you a call, wasnt going to, but looks like you're still up

what class are you running this weekend? 19 turn should be fun. Dujuan, Matt, Alex, and myself are ready to have some fun. Good luck in whatever class you decide to run.

Cut off every other tooth from the yellow belt, there will be much less friction. I dont know how it will do under breaking, dont use much brakes with a 1 way, but this weekend at the carpet race we'll know if it skips or not...

oops, kinda said that wrong, I dont use brakes with a 1 way at SoCal, I'll switch to a diff for this weekend and see if it skips under braking.

I tried a 1 way last time at Stockton, and it just pushes...

Just stock I think, I might sign up for 19t and use it for extra practice time for stock. I got new batts just for stock so I am gonna focus on stock this weekend.
