If you guys want to see both of the above mentioned races, I recorded the Mod A-main and the 17.5 Boosted A-main. Martin's cars looked really good, as usual.

Am I the only one that likes short camber links front and rear?.... usually with a lot of angle, too. I've tried long ones at our track and I could not find a setup I liked.... (low bite carpet)....

Perhaps the car works much better on high bite with long links and I just haven't had the chance for it yet?

One of my setups on Petit is a short link setup, its when I had a lot of issues with side bite, this really hooked the car up nicely.

Really depends on the track and what the car is doing, but if short links are working for you thats great, nothing says one is right over the other, just one might work better at that time over another.

Our track is fairly large low-bite carpet.... it's the same way on my TC6, I just can't stand driving the car with a long front link in any class. I also run the shocks on the 6th hole rear/3-4th front. It makes a ton of sidebite, which is what I'm always looking for. Part of it is I also like a very aggressive car

Also, with as much angle as I run on the links, I noticed it gives me plenty of leeway when traction comes up, because I can add up to 3-4mm on the inboard link if it becomes an issue.

Setting up for low bite always makes me second-guess myself on setup theory

Good to know, what setup changes did you make to accommodate the thinner chassis and flex deck?
