I am trying to see if these will fit on another chassis I like the look and design of these over x ray or associated.

Thanks

For the D08 approximate measurements are

Hinge pin 3.0 mm
Mounting hole 28.8 mm
3deg insert 46.15 mm

Note the D06 E30 block has the same mounting holes, but the spacing of the pin is 46.0 mm.

Maybe someone else can confirm/verify measurements.

Dean's first race with the D08 on a new track layout(low grip asphalt) was excellent. Qualified 2nd, finished second.
Started with Ryan's asphalt setup and tuned from there. The right choice in tyres and not clipping the domes would have made the difference

Feedback from a seasoned driver was very impressed with its direction change and speed. This car is a huge improvement going from the D06 to the D08.

Thanks for the info!

But unfortunately with that measurement, the pin spacing would be too wide.

Can someone explain where they are measuring the rear droop setting on the car for the set up sheet? Example of eds set up of 5.6mm ride height and a 1.5 droop setting. I'm used to measuring over ride height which is dependent on the ride height. I just can't figure out where the 1.5 is coming from.

Lowest point of the rear hub. On the VBC, the rear hub has a loop extending under the arm. I measure at the centre on the loop.

So how much (1.5) droop is that in over ride height measurement - eg: 3mm over ride height?

have testing for the first time my D08 this weekend,on medium high technical grip.
Started from stock setup, made a few changings and i like the car was very fast in high speed turns and chicanes. Turns very easy and precise.

425wt/35cst in front shocks orange.
388wt/32cst in rear shocks red.
10k in rear diff, makes the car on power, in the exit of the corner more planted and easier to drive.
2.5 deg toe in, in rear.
2 shims under the exit of the motor mount.
1degr front camber/ 1.5 rear camber
rest stock setup.

What do you mean by 2 shims under the exit of the motor mount?

Rear motor mount using the 2 x 1mm shims and the 2 extra screws.

Professor - what blocks are you running on your other car? I'm assuming B's but just an assumption. I can measure my D08 set up to see the narrowest combo possible to see what it would be if that would help.

Here is the set up that Ive ended up with so far. Just realised i put minus front toe when it should be toe out oops. I'm, currently within 0.7 of the mod hot laps with the 13.5 so its got plenty Stick. I can run a 0.2 consistency over 6 minutes so its very easy to drive fast all the time. I'm yet to test some of the motor mount flex settings and i don't have the steering or motor mount posts to test but they are on order. I really wanna test the 1.6 top deck when it arrives too and then run the full stiff setting on the chassis. This car already carries so much corner speed its crazy. I want to test making the front end a little narrow using minus 2 dot and widening up the back end by running 3dot/5dot. I think running the 6k diff is on the limit for the track but i love the exit steering you get. Ive been running the LTC-R only but i think now Ive got this set up working it might be time to crack out the Speed6 and go up in the diff again and maybe adjust the front roll center a touch. Loving this car.
