Arrow car suspension help.

Anyone knows a nice article about car suspension setup, like the height, oil density, stabilizers etc.. I can't get to understand their effectiveness well.

I assume you are asking in regards to TC. Attached is a suspension summary sheet I had put together from info I have gathered over the years. Note that this is for foam tire TC.

[edit:] 1/12th summary sheet is posted below.

I agree with Lano xxxmain is a really good investment. Goes over everything to do with setup.

My pleasure. I printed them out (double sided for the TC one) and had them laminated so they don't get all mucked up at the track.

I had also adjusted the margins so that they can be used in a 3-ring binder/folder.

Man, one guy mistakes me for being French and the whole world seems to believe him. Guess I better start wearing a beret, smoking cigarettes at the end of a long cigarette holder, and drink lots of latte's.
