Is the car available in this configuration as a kit, or are the long arms and lay down towers/shocks still need to be purchased separately?

We can provide the car with long arms And laydown towers if you prefer. The laydown shocks however, we have done very little development on and canít provide a ton of support on set-ups, etc. but if you guys want to do the testing, we can definitely sell it like this.

So I've read 10 pages back and not see a starting asphalt setup, mostly carpet. I even scouted the the gizmo site under support, but only found older car version PDFs. Is the kit setting good starting point?

Many thanks in advance.

I don’t have the best starting setup for Asphalt with the regular shock setup yet. Hopefully we can get Zac or Christian to chime in. I looked through my notes and Christian said the stock kit springs are 2.15 and are a good starting place for USGT Asphalt with the higher roll centers.

Per Christian

The suggested starting setup for the regular suspension:

4 degrees caster in front
2 degrees of camber all around
2.5 degrees of rear toe
0 rear caster
0 front toe

i am running this setup with a few exceptions
4 degrees caster in front
2 degrees of camber all around
2-2.5 degrees of rear toe
-4 rear caster
1.5 front toe out

This setup has been working for me in everything from USGT to 17.5 Tc on asphalt tracks of all sizes

The front castor is positive which is laid back, so you are running negative camber tilted forward in the rear?

Yes running the caster is leaning forward. That shorter wheelbase really helps the car to rotate on higher grip tracks. I have been on some low grip tracks that I went to 0 on the rear caster and it helped to hook up the rear. The majority of the time I am at -4 on the rear caster

Typically when castor is discussed, if the tire is leaning towards the back of the car it is called negative, if the tire is leaning towards the front of the car is is positive. I run 4 short as well or +4 which is the same thing you run fanfor18.
