Cheers

I will take a picture later on today or tomorrow... I believe it is simliar to the yokomo one, haven't put them side by side to compare though..
It was recommended to me by the one of the Yokomo team drivers here.

I don't see anyone taking TQ from alex in 19T, Aaron's car is fast but he's traction rolling and Alex is a lap up on everyone else. I'm going to have my rayspeed car for rent to anyone that wants to run it in 19T Hopefully someone can give Alex a run

1st- 3rd all have 22 laps.....so one good run can do it......maybe. He is on fire but if we were to run the mains in the way we are qualified right now I'd be in 1st place after the first turn and you know what I'm talking about!!!!

Hi guys i came back from my 1st real testing of the SD..had a few runs today.As the final pack went,i broke my personal lap record

What impresses me is that every change i made had a definite respond.

I was fighting to reduce some off-throttle(a lot) and on-throttle(a bit,but dangerous) understeer.1st i tried by going from hot orange in front to hot yellow springs.

Of course that felt better immediately.

Then i reduced rear droop by 1/2 turn.Felt good as well.

Next removed the front roll bars.Close.

at last the most pronounced effect came from a change of ackerman.Now it's very agressive , closest to my liking the whole day.Took out my lap record with the oldest pack i had.

I hope to do somemore testing tomorrow.Starting by reversing some of the earlier things.

Is there anything i'm doing wrong or missing?hope you guys can give some pointers.

Thanks for listening to me talk to myself.

ackermann refers to the difference of angle between the front wheels.
make a full lock and chances are that u will see a different turning angle between the right wheel and left wheel.

It's changed by changing the angle of the steering links.I dont know how to quantify it though,just know that different angles have different effects.

What did you do with the ackerman? Do you shortened it? Because from my experience, it changes your initial feeling, and the worse is (which is I hate the most) your steering senses is like not linear. That's why i stop messing with it again. Maybe you can share some of your experience. Thanks

i actually had less ackermann(i think) where the angles are more similar,meaning the wheels are more parallel.
Now,the inside wheel turns much more compared to the outside which gives more turning in a more exponential way.
I'm not too sure on my explanation though,as this is also murky for me.All i do know is the car turns more aggressively.
