Marc and I looked shared setup info, but we both did our own thing. The main difference was in the springs and the diff oil. He ran yokomo springs and I ran serpent springs, but the springs felt very close given that I ran my rear shocks on the inner hole of the arm. I ended up using grey springs all around, while marc I think had yokomo pink and blue. His springs felt more linear while mine felt a little more progressive.
In terms of the diff oil, I ran 1000w and I think he ended up somewhere around 2000w.
oh yeah...he also ran 2.5 rear toe where I ran 3.0. I tried the 2.5, but with my diff oil being much lighter than his it gave the car too much off power steering.
I ran 5mm inboard spacers on the upper links. On the rear upper links I rn 4mm inboard and 3mm outboard. I think Marc ran about the same if not exactly that.
We both ran 0.5 mm spacers under the hinge pin blocks.
we both ran a spool.
Marc's car was traction rolling initially as he had the shocks layed down more than mine, but after he changed to using the 4 position in the rear and 3 in the front like mine, he stopped traction rolling.
With the exception of Alexander and Nayoto, we all ran 10.3 s laps as our fast laps in mod. Alexander and Nayato fast laps were 10.1. So it was good tight competition for positions 3 through 10 in the a main, determined by consistency instead of outright pace.
During the main, our opening lap was very clean until the last corner of the first lap where about 5 cars got together in a chain reaction. Unfortunately I got flipped by a car behind me and went to last place. I ended up 7th and marc ended up 4th.
