anyone notice ETS - Luxembourg setups both Prumper and Volker are running ff44.2 and fr43.5 front suspension block. This angles the front arms outwards are there any benefits to this?

That's pretty standard on bd7 setups tbh.

I also think with that setup the 1.5mm under the camber links is with the lowered ball studs, so that would be the same as kit with no spacers

I'm not sure, I think the short ball studs are 2mm lower, his starting setup for Luxemberg says 0, so I guess that would be 2mm lower, at least I think so

1.5mm, which setup are you looking at?

I see 1.0mm on the outer camber link only and the pics indicate lower ball studs on the inner camber link.

Pretty sure they are 1.5 lower, I'll check tonight. I doubt they'd ever run no spacers under the lowered studs, that would put the links on a huge angle

Thanks.

Out of interest what roll centers do people normal use with the BD7 14.

I have found with matched shims front and rear the rear rolls around alot more than the front leading to traction roll.

ATM the best setup I have found to prevent traction rolling is 1mm shims on the upper rear outer links with no shims on the front links. Car feels good, balanced and stable but is slow.

Yokomo FB
Just had a look the standard inner and outer ones are the same length. The shorter ones on the rear roll bar links are 1.4mm shorter
