Mike,

I see that you ran 100/80 oil with your drilled 1.5 mm pistons at Cleveland...what advantage do you think that had over say...60/40 and 1.1 or 1.3 mm pistons? I know it creates less pack...in your opinion, does that give the car more steering because of the increased weight transfer?

I have played with this a bunch and it is a pretty big difference and a nice tool to work with to get the handling just perfect...

Mike
A tuning option it is...Thanks.

Brian,

Yes less pack .. I found the car to transfer weight way faster and in turn make the car turn much better and on some occassions too much.. I still want to play alittle more with it and see where it go's from there.. I think i needed the holes to be 1.4 with the combo i was running . With 1.5 the front still felt a bit too soft with 100 wt oil....


Mike

Watching your car at the race, it did look like it was transferring weight very quickly. But then again, for that layout, you needed it. The only time I thought you could've used less/slower weight transfer was in that last qualifier ironically enough! Especially coming onto the straight, the car would continue leaning over as the car slingshot down the straight.

For Novak, I'm not sure we'll need such aggressive cars (pending that it is the same or similar layout). You've probably already been thinking that.

I am in the learning stage of how to setup a car, how do you know it is time to switch to a thicker or thinner shock oil? and when changing to a different shock oil do you change the shock spring also?

Thank you.

Shock oil weight controls the speed of weight transfer. If you want to make the car react quicker, use thinner shock oil on one or both ends of the car. The downside is that this sometimes this leads to excess grip. For example, too thin a rear shock oil will transfer weight to the front of the car very quickly upon turn-in, which can sometimes overload the front tires. Shock oil weight is always a balance between front to back and side-to-side weight transfer. Try things out and see how they feel. Take notes.

The servo saver just prevents stress on the servo itself. The arm will make it a more direct feel.
