Thanks for the replies. But if according to mupchu, if there are 3 ways of measuring droop, how would I know which method was used on the setup shit posted by the pros? Im assuming its done by measuring under the arms front and back.

usually they notate how on the sheet.

+2mm over ride height . . they measures by lifting the chassis.

sometimes you will see two numbers 5,9 the lower number is the bottom of the arm, the higher number the center of the pin.

How do you measure at the center of the pin?

place the car on a flat surface, wheels off, shocks disconnected, and use a ruler or calipers and measure from the surface to the center of pin.

So it basically moves the motor back to D05 position? Interesting.

Hi folks, just landed a killer deal at the LHS on a D07. I've only heard good things about the car, and this opportunity was too good to pass... Currently driving a BD7 '15, I will run both cars in parallel (at least at the beginning) as I have enough electronics to get both equipped

Anything I should know, or no-miss parts I should get? We run 13.5 boosted indoors on very hi-grip carpet... The aluminium chassis is already on-order. we'll see later about the "agressive" chassis discussed above...

Thanks!
Paul

Hello!

What u really need :
C05 Suspension mount
C10 Suspension mount

That's all i'm using.

A last ETS, a lot of drivers switch back to carbon chassis. Faster and more easy to drive...

I'll try aggressive package soon at Luxembourg for ETS. So can't talk now

On petitrc, you can find some of my setups for high traction carpet. And,as u are french, if u need setup advice, you can contact Lucas. Je crois que tu dois le connaître : ))

I used your setup last week on the same track as Lonestar and it was very surprising... Very far from the setup I've built after many trainings but working better than mine!

The most interesting fact was the roll-center, I was used (and a lot of local drivers are also) to run with 1mm under the arms...

Did you already try the ARTS kit?

Not for the moment. Maybe for outdoor. Nobody aware using ARS during outdoor!

0mm under arms is always faster! Not always easy in fast change direction.. U need to run really smooth!

Lol! Hey, I figured someone's gotta show you how to drive it fast. Oh, yeah - my paint scheme is off limits, too.
