So for a loose track, I want to get your opinions on guidelines for the following:
- Toe front & rear
- Chassis roll
- Springs and shock damping
- Diff setups & oil weight
- Diff vs. one-way vs spool (pros and cons of each)
- Tire split for overdrive and underdrive
- Clutch setup (i.e. do you want it to engage early?)
I don't want to start any debates on "this car is better than that car" or "or only use brand XYZ for your tires". Just honest opinions from your experience on setup advice all of us can refer to for a loose track.
Thanks in advance.
hey Tom try this in the rear diff vzw009.
I ened up with a 17 and 59 on the 1st gearing to cut down on wheel spin.
37 rears and 40s fronts
silver silver on the springs 40wt front, 35wt rear
-3 deg toe in the rear
+1.5 toe in the front
2mm shim on the rear up right
2.2 rear bar
front bar flat
rear shock postion #1
-1.5 camber in the rear
50000 front diff
lower mount on the front hinge and upper on the rear.
and the most important thing is stay on the racing line, I got wide a few times and the car was junk for a lapp or two.. it will get better after the trees stop dumping the pollen and the rain stays away........
