Hey guys, help a newbie out. I run my cyclone at a high traction carpet track, with rubber tires(sorex 28`s) car keeps traction rolling. I`ll keep it short and sweet, should I stiffen up the suspension or try different tires?

First things first you need to make sure your car is in balance from left to right. This can be a real serious issue for traction rolling if you are typically only traction rolling on one side of the car. Next I would add sway bars to the car to try and reduce the chassis roll. After that I would raise the roll center both under the blocks and under the inside camber links.

Artwork, the car is pretty close to being balanced. I was running the thickest(1.6?)sway bar up front with none in the rear, I`ll try the 1.4 swaybar in the back next weekend. If that doesn`t do it I`ll try raising the roll center. Thx.

Are you sure its not a case of just having way too much initial steering?

You could try removing the shims for the ackerman (you will probably need diffferent, shorter, ball studs), lengthen the wheelbase and change the front pivot block to a zero.

Try go to a softer spring rate front and rear. This was a quick fix for us without drastically changing the set up.

Clint- if your ever in the San Jose area, I have a brand new BMI chassis kit for the Cylcone. Never ran, sanded, or glued. Make a resonable offer and it's yours.

The washers are for looks and the posts are ATC posts. They have o rings in the center of them and can be used to control the rigidity of the chassis
