Well, i guess it cant apply pdf files as attachments, too big..
Ran the car again tonight 13.5 with much better results. I ran the car Transverse and i definitely like it better overall. taped the battery down butted against the rear brace.
Was trying to find a setup that would work with greylow/black tires but my only set of black fronts got very low.. almost to glue and i had to go back to magenta green setup, or double pink jaco, crc green.
I was told this setup would lock the car down too much and it did, so i looked to loosten things up some with the suspension.
the biggest changes came to the kingpin shimming and spring choices. I switchd all four side spring corners to crc 50s which i think really made the car work with greylow/black. with the stock springs, being 55s it would washout way too easily but this change alone made it driveable.
I should also mention the transverse layout is tits. i had a hard time with traction with the above mentioned tire combo but transverse and softer springs brought it back..
of course, i only got one heat with that before switching back to mod tires. i had to add 0.8 mm to the lower kingpin to space the crc spring, added 0.8 above steering block to take out a bunch of the front droop that was there stock, like a mm plus of front droop is way too much.
only 0.8mm left on the upper arm but might add some more angle if i stick to this tire combination, as well as going down in the static caster to try to get it to pull the car around when off the throttle better.
magenta green was very safe to drive but these changes to the front gave it back some of the twitch i missed from my old asc car.
the rest of the setup is fairly standard i think;
50wt 2 hole son the center with stock spring, 20k lube in the tubes. I also added 0.8mm per side of the rear axle which probably helped some and was running the lower shock position with only 2mm spacer.
so a few weeks ago i was struggling to finish a heat or make the main, qualified third and finished third overall. a full lap down to craig and blake, but the the only thing keeping me close to those guys would be a outlaw motor lol. 20+ years against my 3 just isnt gonna happen.
thus far im happy with the car. next time out i might try magenta blue, as well as have my mod car together. im sure most of the setup here will go on there, though i never had the problems with mod that ive had in stock.
