Just a quick question...

What would I get if i moved my rear camber link all the way in on the shock mount... and on the top hole on the rear hub...

and if i go outer hole on the shock mount and outer on the hub (opposite to the above)

I know it will effect the roll, but just wondering how that will translate on the track

Cheers

Hi,

If you go for a long camber link on the shocktower you will create less grip
If you go for a short camberlink your car wil be more agressive.
Then for the rear upright the outer hole will make the car more stabil the inner hole wil make the car verry agressive!

Thanks Olie, but what I was meaning is to keep the same length... just move it inboard and out board... if that makes sense?

If you where to leave the link the same length, but moved to the different locations you will see a change of approximately 1/2 degree camber change, so from the lowest to the highest you could see 1 total degree of difference. That would be at static setting as the car rolls in the corner that change will dictate more or less lean of the tire going thru the corner or camber gain.

A longer camber link should make the care feel a bit lazy and generate more grip as there is more roll. The angle affects roll center and canber gain all at once. A more parellell link will take gip away and there is less camber gain. Thats what I've always seen.....

Does the Corally shock collar work well with Tamiya springs?
