Here is my TQ/win setup from the ACT titles last weekend. Things I found most effective in low grip were to stand the rear shocks up to hole 3 and raise the rear blocks 0.5mm. Also agree with the comments re: bump steer - too much definitely makes the car loose on power.

I found the front diff easier to drive and it turned in a little better, but I if I wasn't TQ I would have run the spool to make passing easier. Any questions feel free to ask

Hi Craig,

A question here.
What will be the effect in raising the rf and rr suspension blocks?
I thought by raising the blocks at the rear, this will make the car rotates better instead of making it more stabile.

Tx in advance for your insight.

Shimming both RF and RR suspension block with the same amount of shims will lower the roll center increasing rear grip..

shimming RF blocks = will give you anti-squat less weight transfer to rear of the car.

Shimming RR blocks = will give you pro squat more weight transfer to the rear of the car..

Raising the blocks raises the roll center...

As Mike said, it raises the rear roll centre which gives less roll and improves lateral grip. Normally rotation/over-rotation is from the rear end rolling too much

Good morning from Germany!


Yesterday I tried a few things. The setup is attached.

Car feels much better but its too slow. It feels like in corners with more speed theres to less steering and in slower corners the rear is loose.
I will try raising the rear suspension mounts. Didn't had the time for it yesterday.
Also the things for 2 orings in the shocks arrived yesterday and I will build that today.

Just curious, but are you running a lot of drag brake? Have you messed with your Steering expo/curve? I normally run -30 on my steering.

What is the purpose of running negative expo on the steering?
