[QUOTE=Kodak Hodak]Hey All,
quick question, in regards to laying down the shocks on the front, what does this do? i did mine last night and noticed its a bit softer on the front!!
Also, will this give me more turn into corner and better grip?
Dude, how is the motor coming my friend. Long time no Talktie!
Me be el sicky. YUCK DUDE!!!! I am way zoned and spacy. I'm not sure if anyone answered your question on this about laying down the shocks, I think I am a day behind here guys. Sorry about that. But I will give you a run down on this.
Shock position: the upper and lower shock mounting positions determine how much leverage the lower suspension arm has on the shock during compression, and how progressive the suspension is. (Sort of like changing the fulcrum position of a lever to produce a different amount of leverage).
OK, I hope that makes some sence.
So, if your shocks have more incline (slant):
1. Makes the spring and damping softer
2. Makes the car more progressive giving a smoother feel and more side bite grip
If your shocks are more upright:
1. Makes the pring and damping harder
2. Makes the car have a more direct feel, but less lateral grip.
I could have got into extremem detail but didn't want to confuse anyone. Plus with me feeling like BUTT, I can't concentrate too well. If this needs revised, please feel free. But I think this is pretty accurate.
I kept it nice and simple as this is all my brain can handle right now.
I want to wish everyone a fun and safe KILLER race weekend!!! I know a lot of you guys are racing, so go show them who's boss!!!
And Frankie, Dude you better keep me posted on your engine progress! I have missed chatting with you guys since I've been sick and all. You all have a great weekend. I hope that TZ treats you well my friend.
Keep me posted. Later everyone!!!
