Default camber links

Imo, there is no need to use shorter links at all. I've been testing camber links from short to long back and forth. Everytime I tried to go back from Long to short car was harder to handle and laptime constantly weaker.

After DHI Cup ill post my current setup to AE Site. My car has been real good recently on carpet. I got plenty of steering and grip without loosing cornerspeed.

hopefully I can TQ for Team AE again. And ofcourse win with better luck

The reason that 3rd mounting hole is there is if you use different spurs that dont have openings to get the screw behind it. I doesnt help with gear ratios

Anyone have any other ideas?

28T/87T => 6.21 fdr use some dremel and you can put 29T

Anyway, I don't have another spurs so I made some bigger holes.

Also use screw M3 with 2.5hex and ball-hex screw driver, it really helps

Regards!

It would help if the standard AE Kimbrough or aftermarket Robinson spurs work. Hopefully my kit will be here shortly (damn holiday shipping delays). I'll try it once arrives. My skills aren't up to snuf yet for super stock boosted racing.

Default qtn for the pros

I just attached all of the camber links to the chassis and everything is bound up so tight it can hardly move.

For the pros out there how do you free this thing up?

After you pop the eyelets on the ball ends, you can squeeze them side to side with pliers. Start with squeezing them square on, and then you can also rotate them a little and squeeze side-to-side again all around.

Also, if you're not running the stock #7 camber link positions or the long steering link position, you'll need either some shorter camber rods (1.25" or 1.3" like on the TC5) or you need to trim the stock camber rods by 3 or 4mm on each side.

I squeezed and squeezed and rotated and squeezed some more from every direction. I eventually just took them all off and put on some RPM ball ends.

Popping them on and off will help free them up but if that's not enough then chuck them up in a dremel and polish them with 1000 grit paper ..... butter.

Default Finally

I have finally finished my TC6. Nothing left to do but get rid of the 200mm sensor wire and get a 50mm from TQ. Then race!

Thumbs up Speedie

Thanks for the PM Ant3. I will put a small amount of heatshrink on the centre post,just at the very top where it is at its widest. I know that they disapate the heat so i won't do the whole thing, just the first 4mm. They just unplug, so it will be easy to get at.
