What is the issue with 44mm shafts?

he used the solid suspension in front and rear. marc prefers them when the traction is high. but keep in mind its a mod. setup, in the stock class we used a softer version.


what are the advantages of the djcs?

Which rear toe blocks will get you 1 degree of toe in? Is there a chart or something to explain this?

There is no issue with the driveshaft, but they can pop out in a hit if the spool cup is too short, thats why I mentioned the new roche ones are longer.

Default Hole in the shock cap

Hy there!

I have a question regarding the 1mm hole in the shock cap.

I usualy use it on asphalt. Is it also recomended on carpet?
Thin i read that the team drivers dont use it on carpet.

I ask because my lak of training track time. I usualy came to the race track sunday morning, and so there is no time to play with such things.

Greetings Rainer

We run full rebound (or near full) on our shocks so drilling a hole wouldn't be any good. Also chassis needs to be stiff so the suspension works the tyres. We run the 417 motor mounts without them being cut.

There is a carpet set-up on my blog in the sig. It's running foams, and my car is the quickest at our club.
