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

Ok...... you are changing a lot with that.

Long, short, this and that.

Bottom line is........ angled links give more side bite due to camber change. Flat links give more forward bite. It is a balance of what you want.

Rember that the standard rear hub links are not the same as the option hubs. When you shorten the link it will free it up, but going too short can effect forward bite. So if you go up on the rear hub, but do not adjust the shock tower location it will be a big difference.

Hi,

Congrats with the result on the worlds!

The car is how you would build it out of the box except for tamiya shocks and front alloy knuckles.

I think maybe everyone was looking for a little more insight as to your setup used for the worlds. Maybe as compared to the one you have posted on the AU Corally site.

Default Pinions

Is it just me, or is it nearly impossible to get an allen wrench into the pinion set-screw with the motor installed?

I've got the stock motor plate and a BL motor installed. I also can't get the pinion set back far enough on the pinion shaft to line up properly with the spur gear. The driver hits the motor plate and holds the pinion about an 1/8" out past the spur.

Is this the reason I have seen posts where the pinion is being flipped?

You can run the pinion flipped like that, but then the setscrew usually ends up hitting the front belt and slowly chewing it up.

I usually put the pinion on before installing the motor. If you slide it down so the setscrew is as far down the flat as it will go, the alignment is pretty much dead on. It's not the most ideal thing for quick pinion changes, but if you're loosening the motor screws to change the gear mesh anyway, it's not that much slower to take them out to make setting the pinion easier.
