From my understanding a "split" piston has 2 sizes of holes. Where a regular piston is 2x1.7 or 2x1.8 a split piston could be 1x1.6 and a 1x1.7 hole in a single piston. Hope this helps. :-)

Newer setup is a lot more traction focused, seems very well received by most drivers I've spoken with and I still believe it to be a great starting point for most..
There is more to come........
Where will you post you latest set up for indoor clay??

Thanks

Called Associated about 3 weeks ago about the 1.8 rear pistons.
They sent me a set of 1.7 thins. I think several 6.2 kits have the wrong (1.8) pistons in them

Default Rear hub height

Roger I notice your latest high grip astro setup is only using the +1 insert on the rear hub but quite a low ride height (17mm) - is this to keep the rear roll centre low and generate more rear roll and less grip in tight corners?

Unfortunately I doubt I will ever get to race on indoor clay, there are absolutely zero 10th scale clay tracks in the UK, indoors or outdoors. Sorry I cannot help directly but if I were to go to the USA I would be starting on Dustin Evan's setups as I have great respect for his setup ability as well as his driving.

It is simply not viable to have indoor clay tracks in our country, it is VERY rare to find any permanent indoor facilities at all due to the costs of real estate and business rates. The two permanent indoor facilities I know of are both carpet tracks so they can be used for both on-road and buggies.
Outdoor clay for 10th tracks is impossible due to the weather, there are 8th tracks but they very quickly become far to rough for 10th cars.

Well spotted, it is an anomaly and not something I would usually do, it came about from working with the Hall brothers a lot, Jamie in particular likes to have a car that he can handbrake into every corner and that needs a certain level of camber gain. Also the tracks we have been racing on have been very tight and technical due to having to be covered by only 6 marshals for social distancing reasons, more about the drivers stand than the track of course, which has resulted in us wanting a car that can be rotated hard.

Also the typical feedback is that people are finding that the B6.2 has a lot of steering and as such there has been a tendency to try and balance that by locking in the rear end rather than my normal more flowing setups where the rear follows the front in a natural arc.
Over the past few weeks I've been struggling along trying to help develop setups for those guys but I simply cannot drive quick enough that way, I'm far more old school than that. Also as clubs are getting used to how to manage the distancing the tracks are trending more towards the faster more open layouts, current Kidderminster layout is insanely fast for example!

There will be a setup available very soon that is a lot more conventional in that respect. I will go into the details once the sheet is available to discuss but essentially a higher axle height, longer rear link on the hub and increased roll stiffness on the front amongst other things.
Really finding a good understanding of the new car now, tracks being closed for 13 weeks didn't help.

Dumb question how do you transition from driving low grip to medium grip AstroTurf. Found my low grip driving techniques too for medium grip astro.

Don't change the driving style, change the car.

As grip increases ...
Reduce rear toe,
Remove some washers from behind the steering rack ball stud,
Raise rear axle height (probably front axle height too),
Raise inner rear ball stud.

All these things move bias towards a freer rotating rear with less front end bite.

Also move the battery position forward as the grip goes up.
