You can see the silver prototype rear block on Volkers car like the Techra/TC7 ones. It looks like the old style pivot block system will be a thing of the past soon, only Tamiya sticking with it I think

Yes, congrats to Ronald

Though as a side note, it's hard to think of any other race where the winner looked to have a slower car than anyone else who ended up behind him.
It had no corner speed compared to the Xray's or Tamiya

I don't think there is any conspiracy theories guys,

regarding the blocks at EC they are just regular blocks machined down 1mm, team drivers have been using them for a few months now,

Volkers setup also shows some of the other mods that have been put in place, like raising the shock towers a mm or more, as the short shocks have been bottoming out.

With regarding low grip in the final's you don't know how much of that is to do with tyres, the fact he was running silver front, blue rear springs tells me there probably wasn't a load of grip being generated.

The Hudy Arena doesn't have much 'natural' grip
, they gain it through spraying sugar water over the track. Combine it with the resonably high track temps (I'm assuming as the air temp was around 30degC) and I think it was a recipe for reduced grip.

RV certainly looked to be struggling in the A2 leg that I just watched (thanks for the link in the other thread Damian), especially on the centre section where Bruno tagged him.

Was there a limit on tyres? Perhaps RV was on a second run set??

If you watch the video link from the page before you can see it's a sliver block with the plastic inserts in, which is why Ronald is covering it up, they did put something on facebook a couple of weeks ago saying that will b producing some. I don't know if it's a 16 platform or 14 he was using, no X brace at the rear though

There was, but the commentators said he had 3 sets saved for the finals.

5 sets for qualifying and 1 set for finals

Rheinard was the only one with 2 sets in the finals

RV saved 2 from qualifying for the finals. I think the Xrays did the same. Orlowski used 5 sets in qualifying.

I've been testing my BD7 2016... I copied my 2014 setup but the 2016 suffer from lack of over all mechanical grip on asphalt. So made little changes primarily on camber and ride height i also really went light on the diff oil as the car is lacking steering. The car came a live and very easy to drive after the change however I like my car really aggressive on corner as I break really late with the current setup I need more mechanical grip on the front end so I decided to try the floating steering rack from Spec-R and walla it's night and day car almost drive like my 2014 BD7 without the car traction rolling when the grip goes up..

Did you put more camber and higher ride height? Are you using the standard suspension blocks or did you go wider?

Glad you got it working for you. In our indoor asphalt track, car lacks overall grip as well. Been 6 months and I still don't have a baseline setup :-(.

The past 3 race days my 16 has gotten better each time. I'm still looking for the "sweet spot" but overall I'm pleased. I'm thinking of putting my 14 together and compare times this weekend.
