Thanks
Going lower should give you less roll and therefore more grip.

how do you guys raise the roll centres for the pivot pin supports on the inside of the car (the longer mounts, not the 3 and 2.5 degree supports)

i bought some spare blocks to raise the roll centre and realised that you need longer blocks for the inside mounts.

It's the opposite I'm afraid

If you increase the spacers under the pivot blocks this also changes the relative angle and 'parallel-ness' of the upper link to the wishbone when the car is at neutral roll.

An increase of the pivot block spacers will raise the roll centre at that end of the car, the higher the roll centre is placed the less that end of the car will initially roll when entering the turn.

The more a car rolls the more grip it is generating on entry and exit, up until the point at which it traction rolls or just feels like it's reacting to input very slowly, a lower roll centre will aid the car by keeping it flat during cornering making it more nimble but the only increase of grip will be mid-corner.

dont use any plates there as it would rub on the belt(not that they fit anyway), just use the plates for the pivot blocks that have the 2.0 , 3.0 on them and just use washers/shims for under the ones you are talking about.

Hi Guys
Any one got any issues with the build of the TC, just asking, as I have a few issues with certain bits.
