To my amazement the rear end was everywhere but planted. It felt like I was driving a drift machine.
Looking to stick the rear end a bit more expecially on corner exit. Corner entry the car pushes which is really predictable.
Using box stock springs.
sway bar front - non in rear
100k wt front
locked stock spool middle
30k wt rear
Shocks layed all the way down in the rear and the front is as vertical as I can get them. Using the most outside lower hole on the arm.
Rear upper link:
Outside : Middle Upper Hole
Inside : Lowest Inside Hole
Running sweep 45s tires on all four corners they get fairly hot and gummy after running for 2min so I think the tires are working well.
Rx8 1900kv 20 boost 5.5k-22k
throttle profile 3
Initial throttle 8
Current Limiter : 80
Stock Spur - 21 Pinion.
You didn't mention what type of car you're running so, I will guess it's a GTP2E.
If you're just bashing, the setup isn't quite as important, as its about FUN FUN FUN.
However, to HELP plant the rear of your car, I would suggest swapping the center spool for a diff. IT HELPS TREMENDOUSLY.
Most setups I've seen start with Front Diff - 20K, Center 100k, and 10k in the rear. Purchase the center diff and TUNE IT TO YOUR LIKING FIRST.
