Good, although I've only had the opportunity to get the Eryx on the track once so far... although my TE is also going well too.

I've seen that on a few cars, most recently a TC6. It stops the front of the body deflecting downwards at the high speeds of Mod.

The motor looks to be further forward on the development cars so I would expect that to rotate less than the regular setup

What surface? You're shock angles are way off, lay the fronts down and stand the rear up.

In that case your springs are fine. Your shock angles alone will cause the car to be very edgy, what wheelbase are you running front and rear?

Go to 3.5mm in the rear, that really settles things down, and consider the 1.4 rear bar as well. Ackerman also has a big impact on how the car rotates, so if you are running a lot (e.g. 3mm) consider dialling it back

What a great race TITC was this year! The level of racing was even higher this year, and track conditions changed so much throughout the event, it was very hard to adapt the setup to what the track was doing. Pretty happy I made the B main again, had 2 crappy finals after being taken out in both after good starts! Nevertheless the car was really good, my setup should hopefully be on Petit soon I used all standard parts on my car, only used normal TRF dampers not aeration. I tested low shock towers and shocks but liked the standard parts better

If anyone has any questions please ask

Cheers,

Antoni
