Hi guys,


could someone pls gimme some information about the overall rear height with the 909 body? Is the 909 in combination with the longest Mugen H-arms (x kit, long option) already at maximum height (265mm?) or do you use longer (third-party) arms?

I had a 909 but could not get it to steer enough, so I ended up ditching it. Maybe it was too low in the rear...

Thanks for your feedback,

Stefan

The 909 will not steer at all if you mount it too far back. I like it at 14mm. Any less and it doesn't turn. Some people like 12 but mine wouldn't turn in a 40 acre field until I moved it up to 14, then it was dialed.

Thanks a lot for the feedback wingracer, much appreciated

I had the 909 @ 20mm in front of bumper and it was not turning like the Zytec. Any thoughts on the rear body height (my previous post)?


Thanks, Stefan

I used Kyosho M3 Longest arm and it gave stirring at the same time stable at the back end. I was running the 4x longest H arm before and my car was way much harder to drive (push and loose). Now, I have been running for the past weeks with softer compund in the front than the back.

I did have my 909 raised a bit but probably not as much as some people. I just spaced the posts on mine and raised it about 4mm. Worked great. The Zytec I tested at the same time did have a bit more steering but no where near as stable. Oddly enough, I liked the Zytec better early in the week when the track was slick but as soon as the grip came up, the 909 was the ticket.

Personal I do not like a high rear end. The engine gets less cooling as also the car does loose its low looks, some cars do look like a wig. I use the short H arms which makes my car low and have no issues with steering and grip with the P909 body.
The EFRA has already anounced a possible future rule that the rear end maximum height could be lowered to 150mm (now it is 170mm), I would support that. Not only because my advantage driving such a low body but it also gives more difficulies setting up a car and driving a car which is a part of racing.

The ROAR rule is 190mm tall, and I have been told they have no intention of changing it. The Worlds are in the U.S next year and I bet you will see some really tall bodies.

Not necessarily true..............I know some manufactures that will be very unhappy if they do.
