That is exactly what I did too for mounting the Caddy

Dumper :On your caster shims -where are you placing them on the 5 degree blocks.Are you using the kit springs front and rear and in the center shock?Most importantly where are you running the battery.Also the width narrow-middle or wide and long or short wheel base?
Just started trying the tranverse battery and Narrow with the short wheelbase .

All of those speed tips you gave me at iic and I have to learn about this one on the internet? Thanks for the help the new R/T car is amazing, our track had a three day event called Bone Crusher and it was the fast car all weekend.

Default New GT-R fast

Hey took my new GTR out this weekend for our first club race and it was fast. We had two heats of GTR cars and the driver held the car up, but in the A main I got my head in it to finish a hard charging 2nd place. I raced it almost totally box stock except for getting to 5mm in front. I will try my set up from the SE next race for what I think will be even more speed.
Thanks CRC!

Default Pink is fast...no doubt!

And I can see it.

We run on old CRC grey carpet, that as I understand, has much less grip than the newer black stuff most run on. In addition, we have an off-road program that run foam tires on buggies that seems to pick up our groove. So essentially, we are starting our race day with a completely "green" track.

Would you recommend moving the battery traverse for more rear weight bias? Just not sure moving the battery in-line a few millimeters back is going to be enough. Chassis is awesome, just need a pinch more traction for our low bite surface. I see no chance of traction rolling here...

I have raced on some low bite tracks using the same setup. The main thing I change is tire prep. Try this: After you marshall, go back to your pits and take the body off. Fully dope all four tires and wipe them off. Now assuming that you usually dope your tires at the same time leading up to when you run, about ten minutes before then, do a normal tire dope. Then at your normal time, do it again. Cleaning the tires then doing a double dope will really bring up the grip of the tires.

I have thought about going transverse for low bite situations, but that would require moving the electronics around. So it is not an easy thing to just try. If you do take the time to do it, I would be interested in hearing what you find out.

Thanks for responding Brian...

I'll try that for sure. Wouldn't hurt to have a second chassis for this sort of thing. I'll report back.

Last season I was using an LE for my GT-R car and experienced similar low bite conditions. I did take the time to move electronics around and put the battery transverse. It was night and day difference, at least in my experience. Consistently worth a half second per lap. Like Brian said though it is a pain if you want to go from transverse to in-line all the time and there were some definite performance advantages to being in-line when the bite came up.

Thanks guys, I'm convinced I need to do that...I purchased a second R/T for parts, I'll build that one up traverse...

I ran transverse at the Halloween Classic against Brian. This weekend with the same layout down, I will be trying his inline setup.
Great to have a car as flexible as this one to try these things.

Anyone have a setup to post other than box stock?

Box stock is really good as a starting point for just about any carpet track. Changes are dependent on the current condition of the track being run. Usually just messing with front/side/center springs and pod droop.

Traction has been pretty good at the 209 Raceway in Stockton, CA this season; so, I only run the in-line configuration there. Saving my transverse setup car for the asphalt tracks in the Spring.

Still waiting for a new Team Scream 17.5 motor (spec'ed for WGT-R). <grin>
