Outside of the no aluminum chassis bit . I wish they'd offer a conversion with that substituted.

I'm gonna try a 1way this week but so far with on this new Black CRC carpet the BD7 16 seem to like softer springs. This CRC carpet is weird in way that atmospheric temp became humid the the traction went through the roof

Yes that makes sense. Lower cg means less overall weight transfer, so lighter springs are needed to create the roll angles.

Most team drivers use a wide car, both in stock and mod, large/smaller tracks.

We have tested a lot with narrow/wide car, and the wide car is much more stable without loosing corner speed.

Also if traction is very high, the wider car tends to traction roll less.

Tried the 4.9/4.2 front. The width was OK but the arm sweep (which I normally like) was undesirable this time. Wanted some like 5.0/5.0 but could not obtain the blocks. As for the rear, I wanted some 2.7s but again availability was not there.

This happens to us all the time. When we race and the sun goes down, the temperature hits the dew point and traction goes up.

Just out of curiosity, what does the front arm sweep do for handling? I never tried running it.

Short answer, more steering. The 2015 / grey carpet liked it. The 2016 with the low CG can get steering in other ways that would roll the 2015, and the arm sweep on the '16 has been a little too much.

Front arm sweep as in not same blocks distance front to rear?

I seen more stability explained to me be have wider blocks on the Fronts blocks (FF) over the Rear Blocks (FR). Like built in toe out and adjust by the steering links accordingly to get your desired Toe Out degrees.

Anyone want to confirm this or explain if we are talking about something different?

Yes, front arm sweep would be the front blocks wider than the rear. On the 2015 I usually ran 3.5 rear and 4.2 front. As for it being more stable !!! I suppose it would slightly widen the stance wish may help, or it might provide more steering through geometry thus requiring less steering input which could give the sense of being more stable. But I have not seen where Sweep directly helps stability.

More and aggressive steering curve entry, but reduces on-power steering.
it changes additionally Ackerman (Ackerman less efekt) and wheelbase (Less).

get more steering on carpet with FF4.2 FR4.2 is my mind with front arm sweep to much with combination LTC-R ... Mazdaspeed 6 combination FF4.9 FR4.2 i like it.

I am new to the forum and I just bought the 2016. Do you guys know how long should the shocks be without the springs on? The reason why i am asking is because without electronics and battery in it the ride height is about 11mm and i dont think the electronics will take away 6mm.
