I've started a Youtube video tutorial series on the website. First in the series goes through measuring and creating a model for the AE B44.2 for those of you who want to create your own models.

Part 1 Measuring

Part 2 Entering into RC Crew Chief

I will be adding new tutorials regularly. If there are any requests let me know.

Hi Bob,

What do you think about the fact that modern tc cars are designed in such a way that front end is about 187mm and rear is 185mm wide, even though max allowed width is 190mm?. This would increase lateral load transfer, something that we dont want in theory. What is the difference between theory and reality, that lateral load transfer is good for our little cars?

I think the width being less than the maximum allowed is more about providing options of running different wheels and tires than what is the norm. ROAR allows rubber wheels up to 26mm and tires to 28mm. The norm is 24mm tires so just running a wider tire at the same wheel offset and you can be at the chassis width limit.

As far as the width you should run IMO wider is better. I have no hard tire data to support this but I have to assume our tires behave the same way as full scale tires do. That means to maximize grip at a given lateral g level you want to keep the load difference between the inside and outside tires as small as you can. The only way to do that is to run the lightest weight permitted and maximize the track width.

Bob,
Are you sending out emails with "166 King St. E" as the subject and an attachment named RepairDetail.pdf or did your email get hacked?

Sorry Pave, I have two people in my address book with exactly the same name. Just picked the wrong one.

Thumbs up Roll center

Hi Bob, after using your program I have a tech question.


I have been playing with roll centeres. I have always been taught that (all other things being equal) that a lower roll center will give morer weight transfer to the out side wheels when the car is turning (especially at corner apex) than a higher roll center will.

Changing the roll center height on the lower susp pins on your "dynamics" page confirms this. (roll center lower = higher number on graph - wheel load V lateral g) however when I flip over to the "Handling" tab and repeat the exact procedure it shows the higher roll center transfers more weight to the outside tyres and the lower roll center produces less weight transfer.

Could u please explain what happening:

PS: I have played with the droop settings a lot but it still does the same

Thank in advance
