Some more testing annecdotes.
I have been using 3 degree camber on the rear on this track for ever. (2 years at least) My tires always wear nice and flat. The EVO is coning them inwards which seems to indicate I can run less camber and still achieve flat wear!! Not sure why this is, I can only assume the car rolls overall much less.
When the grip is down the EVO is as ugly as any other car The track was very greasy and dusty the other day and I basically could not get it to hook up even with 35 on the rear. Very annoying.
My car now weighs 1705 with body
Hmmm . . . I'm going to venture a guess and say that with less traction, you are needing less static camber. Maybe with the Evo, those alternative mounting holes for the rear camber link are now actually usefull.
Please keep the test results coming, AMG.
We have only three tanks on our car - not enough to say anything conclusive.
. . . . however, at the risk of having Manti jump on me for using the "looks" word
the Evo definately looks
to handle differently, and my driver confirms it. It seems to stay very flat, much like a MTX-3 (cough).
The part I haven't figured out is I always thought it was the rear end at fault. Given that the rear is the same as the RR and the Evo front end is changed, I can only assume it's got something to do with the interaction or balance between the two - dunno.
Our VORTEC meeting was rained out today.
Even our spanking new track drying roller was no match for the weather. We have a night meet next Saturday. Please ask sparksy to bring some sunshine with him.
So, what have you done to get the car down to 1705g? You must have adopted the Lotus theory of "adding lightness".
