Its hard to explain, but prime your car on the bench and measure its uptravel from the rear and front... do you know what i mean?

If the rear sits at 5.5 deg ride hight, lift the car until the wheels just sit on the bench. Firstly your camber links should be straight.. not up or down. if they are either way ajust your droop so that sit flat when you lift the rear end.

After doing this, hold the car in this possition and measure its rear right height again. this should tell you your uptravel, and how far the rear end lifts (weight transfer) when brakes are applied or entering a corner.

hope you understand what i mean.

thank's to all.
I'll try next week.

Another question, just for information, when i see 1° front toe-in, is it 1° per side, or total ?

And last one, whats the difference on the track, between 1° camber or 2° camber?

Regards,

Sorry Bill, but there's a fair bit of nonsense in there!

[1]up travel is another way to say droop. Its the travel "up" when lifting the suspension before the wheels leave the ground. so 2mm of up travel in the rear means that if your ride height is set at 5mm then when lifting the rear dead center(usually with an exacto knife) both wheels should leave the ground at 7mm. 7mm-5mm = 2mm of up travel. This method is also used as a quick droop adjustment method. If one tire lifts up before the other, most likely your droop is off, or you are tweaked or possibly shock lengths are different. More than likely though your droop is off.

[1] up travel

This should help explain... I hope

Since the manual ZZZTech posted is the only one I've seen, I'm guessing an english version of the manual is not available online. I've checked with AMain and they can't get me a manual at all, English or Japanese. I would be more than willing to buy a manual in English. Does anyone know a vendor that would have English manuals to sell?

I know what droop and up travel are thanks.
You said you were checking weight transfer, you aren't.

Also you said make sure the camber links are level, not pointing up or down. Doing so would supersede setting droop or up travel and is, well, pointless.

Feel free not to point out anything else you think I don't understand.

That's a typo.

Have a look at the very bottom of this page.

This has been discussed several times and it looks like there is still a lot of confusion about the caster angle of the kit c hubs.....

Stock is 6 degrees.

You can look at all the baseline starting setups on petit rc and you will see that all indicate 6 deg c hubs because that's what comes with the car.

Stock is 6 degrees.
Stock is 6 degrees.
