1:10 scale on-road qustion. Why are adjustments made using setup wheels?
1:10 scale on-road question; Why are adjustments made using setup wheels and why with the car not at ready to race weight?
On a 1:1 car, caster, camber, toe and ride height are set with all wheeled tires on the car at curb weight [as I understand it].
However, on an rc car it is recommended [?]/necessary[?]/suggested[?] to do the camber, toe adjustments and ride height adjustments with setup wheels and the body shell off... Why?
Or am I misunderstanding something?
If one doesn't factor in the variables; wheel warp, tire warp, tire/wheel diameter when mounted to the car [which also takes into account tire/liner crush from the weight of the car, battery & body shell] - Then how accurate can the camber and toe settins be with using setup wheels when it's pretty much a given that things will change once the tires/wheels replace the setup wheels [as I understand it]?
I'm not challenging anything, I'm just asking a question looking for a clear concise fact based answer.
Thanks in advance.
