A friendly reminder when making roll center adjustments 1mm= bad
Yup got a set of nicely grooved outdrives myself, lol.

For the rear of the car, I run one car with the Xray balllinks that have the screw going thru them, just so I can use a screw and if its too long the I can put washers on the top side to space the screw end up and out of the outdrive. I also like the screw option on the outer that screws into the rear hub. Ran on one track that used a 5mm spacer setting which with the stock ball link left little thread going into the hub, so when ever I smacked the board it would pull the ball stud out and strip the hub. Going to the screw setup really gets more screw into the material. Now if they made a 10mm or longer ball stud, well that would be a different story.

I see that Fisher is well seated at the ETS race, really looking forward to see if he ended up with the forward arm sweep setup he had posted from a previous run.

Thats what it looked like to me too, steering edge off, little more rear traction, its that crazy asphalt stuff, makes you do crazy things to stay hooked up. LOL

The car is pretty challenging on the asphalt, making tire choice and tire treatment really important. I have been running 2mm FF and FR blocks.
I am really interested in testing Fischer's front block setup.
I would love to see him on the podium, The car has that kind of potential and deserves to be recognized for it.

I just looked at the setup sheets but the fischer sheets are not a reversed arm sweep they are 1.5 and 1.5 just the font in the pdf is to big to show the .5 text.
if you highlight the text you can make the .5 appear to show it is actually filled in as 1.5.

just so you guys know.

I am referring to the rear grip on low traction tight tracks. My club track is a small and tight track with rear grip at a premium.
I am able to turn a pretty fast lap, however you do have to be on top of your game driving very smooth. I am sure that my situation is somewhat out of the norm do to the conditions.

I'd like to see your current set up and see how much steering epa you're running on your transmitter? I run low to medium traction and Im running the 2.5 rear block with a long link and still have enough traction, until i put the steering up past 80% to accomodate the lack of steering with older rubber. New rubber and steering around 65% and my car is weapon Only wish i had more disposable income for new tyres every meet

I hear you I wish I had unlimited tire funds as well, In my original post I said tires and additive are a key factor. I do use a lot of steering, without it you won't get back and forth through the tight sections on our track. I will play with the EPA t again next time out. Thanks for the tip

Whats your setup Benzaah and what tyres are you using? I am running on similar track conditions as you are and it sounds like you have your car dialed in. I am running Ride red tyres with Fischer Geilenkirchen setup. My car runs well but always looking to improve it.
