Everything has been redone on this car such as chassis, and bearings. I set it up on the hudy and my settings are as followed:
front camber 2
front caster stock position
front toe = 1 1/2 out
Rear camber 3
Rear toe 2 1/2 in
rear arm inner= middle hole
rear are hub= top outside hole
Does the shocks have a lot to do with this.
Since the replacement of my regular diff to this negative diff i have notice that the travel of my suspension is very limited. It seems that the dogbones will pinch in the outdrives when the suspension is compressed. Have this ever happen to you or know why it would be doing this. I took the rear bulkhead apart a few times and assembled everything back together and still the same. I'm kinda stumped.
Check chassis tweak for the pulling. Put the car on a level surface. Use the back of an exacto knife and lift one end of the car in the middle
of the chassis line. Both wheels/tires need to come off the surface at the same time. If one side lifts earlier, then the car has tweak. Do the other end of the car. Minor tweak (no major bent chassis) can be dialed out adjusting the spring tension. You need to work on the diagonal opposite end of the car.
When you lift the rear and the right rear tire comes up first, you need to work of the left front shock
. Turn the left front shock collar down a small amount and check by lifting again. Repeat until both rear tires lift off at the same time.
You can also use a tweak staion like the MIP.
Mugen has 2 lengths of dogbones. There is a shorter one that will fit right. I had the same problem with the solid axle and the Negative diff. Using universals will cure the problem but an expensive solution.
