my cars near stock setup with new ally rear hubs with links in kit position and its understeering.
ive tried everything i can think of and its still understeering.
Is that a Surikarn or standard ride, TR?
yea, I'm chasing a bit more steering too; the std cars seem to
be OK (ran those all year 2003) but the Surikarns seems to
plough on a bit more.
Its tarmac over here in Oz, CS27 are the most popular rubbers.
Running 60wt oil on the fronts, 40wt rear (std 3 holes).
I usually prefer 0-1deg toeout at front, minimum toe at rear (A-A 2degs). Any more at front doesn't improve turn-in, but promotes instability..?
Std car steers well using all-round yellows or sometimes blues in front.
I have a SL with all-round yellows (not very planted) and its twin
with blue/yellow (much better, but still not great).
All-yellows car is running without any centre brace, other has
the Tech T-bar.
Has been suggested to me last w/e that the 3mm chassis
prefers stiffer springing... so will try white/blue at next opportunity.
Other things on the list to try:
1) lower the roll centre at front
2) swaybar at rear (currently both ends on blue/yellow, none on all-yellow)
3) less droop at rear
4) might bring some weights, add 50g to the bumper see what that does...
An ongoing process, need more tracktime.
