Hi Martin,

When the temperature raised up the car was pushing in and middle of comer and on and off power the car just didn't rotate just keep pushing. But is was very good in cold condition.

Could I just work on the suspension oil or it requires setup changes

Thanks Nuno.

Hi Nuno,

If you could either post here or email me your setup and I will be better able to help with specific suggestions based on your current setup.

We need to see if there is something that can be done to increase the lateral grip at the front of the car first, and if not then start taking grip away from the rear...or both.

Default good luck to Andrew and Hugh

Just a shout out to wish Andrew Hardman good luck at the worlds this weekend.

Also another Canadian, Hugh Lawson is racing 1/5th scale at a big race in Italy. Was just chatting with him on facebook about some setup changes to make. Go Hugh!

Well done Andrew Hardman and his mechanic Corey Whiteman, at the worlds! It is the hardest race to compete in as everyone is fast. Congrats to Yokomo for there well deserved win.

Martin, if I am running my car and I have the rear shock in the second most lower rear upper hole and I move the rear shock position at the inner most setting on the upper shock tower, using a shock with 400 oil, 4 hole piston, yokomo blue spring and it works better. What would be the next logical adjustment so that the shock could be moved up but have that same "feel" with the car. Would I want a softer rear shock setting via oil, holes in the piston or spring?

Thanks

Hey Martin,
I noticed some companies sell the DCJ axles for the rear on touring cars. I can understand the fronts, but what benefit will it bring when used at the rear? Thanks.

if you want to stand up the shocks you will need to go down slightly on the spring rate to get a similar same feel, but it still will not be the same feel as the more layed down shock will have a more progressive spring rate meaning it will feel softer at the intial compression and get progressively a little harder as the suspension compresses than a softer spring that is stood up more. The bottom line however is that you really can't the exact same feeling. If you stand up the rear shocks it does tend to give you more rear grip.

I have never used these double joint axles in the rear, but in theory they would help reduce any sort of binding caused by the axles allowing the suspension to work more freely and be less influenced by any binding in the axles.

cheers

Hi Martin: Thank you for all the help you provide! I have your rc set up app and in the helper section under caster you have more or less -VE I am assuming you mean mor or less negative camber is that correct?

Hi,

If it is in the caster section then I was referring to the caster, not the camber if I understand your question correctly. You can send me an email at mcrisp@learsetup.com with a screen shot of what you are referring to so that I can be sure I am answering your question correctly.

No worries Chris...sorry for all the confusion around the IOS8 support.

Cheers.
Martin.

Martin I had a question, on my real race car (2010 GTR with Ohlins Suspension) I have tried and liked the "soft spring, big swaybar setups Actually Moderate Spring, bigger bar)". I haven't tried it yet on my RC, do you think it would work? Is there enough mass there in a RC car to get it to work? Any thoughts.

Hi,

Nice car btw!

Certainly the big sway bar / softer spring approach will afford you more longitudinal weight transfer under braking and acceleration, which may be what is requried for your GTR.

However, although swaybars will make the car roll less and thus make the car feel more controlled, swaybars also reduce lateral grip. i.e. the stiffer the swaybar, the less lateral grip you have.
