Ready for battle in the morning! Lot of smack talk this week, so its about to go DOWN!!
I havent posted for a while, been testing and testing and testing on the EXO and the MD chassis. Unfortunately i could not get either one of them to work very well on asphalt/concrete, to keep it simple the lower chassis is just too stiff.
I put about 200 laps on the MCkune and about 20 on the EXO (only because it had the same characteristics). I tried Full MD,stock lower/MD top and MDbottom/stock top.
lack of rear grip
only way to get it around the track was with hard fronts and had to use alot brake to get it to turn. I was able to get a faster quick lap than the previous week but not near as consistent was 1 lap down from my TQ the week before. went from a 12.2 fast lap to an 11.9 fastlap.
couple of nights after that went to a treated asphalt track and i had nothing but issues and i TRIED everything" three different difs, two pair of shocks. spring combos RC adjustment etc etc.
STOCK LOWER/MD TOP:
This combo was decent but for some reason there was a tweak and i could not get rid of it I had to have 1.5 turns on the right shock to get it to balance, was strange.
MD BOTTOM/STOCK TOP:
over steered even worse as expected
EXO FUll chassis:
felt about the same, it would turn in aggressively and then kind of push out mid to exit which made it a little easier to drive but i dont like my car to move around very much in the turns especially on asphalt.
Another local has this chassis and experienced the same issues.
So i go back to the stock chassis and it just feels much better.
I pm'd Troy but didnt get a response, I have not contacted MikeR yet but will. But listen guys we have over 30 members now here in houston, New F1 dedicated website ( www.HAF1R.com
) we race F1 every thursday and every sunday on three different track that are all Asphalt! Would love to have a chassis that is designed for asphalt. I simply do not have the time to make my own anymore so PLEASE help us out!
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT MY TESTING WAS DONE ON ASPHALT, WE ALL KNOW HOW WELL THEY PERFORM ON CARPET WHICH IS WHAT THEY WERE DESIGNED TO DO, THESE ARE JUST MY EXPERIENCEs, DONT WANT TO PISS ANYONE OFF!
