Hi friends. Greetings from Malta.

GLIDE. The hubs I use are ZM 415 SH. They are the same as the normal MR4 hubs but take larger bearings.

POPS. Right. They are 12mm bearings.

Two things you will need to alter.

Firstly you get more ackerman with these hubs as the steering arm angle is different, but that's a plus point. You therefore need to shorten the turnbuckles - no problem.

Secondly you will have to put a 3 to 4 mm spacer between the ball and the hub arm. This is to line the steering buckle up so that you get as littlebump steer as possible. If you just assemble it without a spacer you will notice immediately what I mean.

GEPPETTO. I run droop at 5 in front and 3 at the rear. It's what all the fast guys in Europe seem to be setting the droop at. It works Ok on mine.

Here's a pic of the car with Fastrax alloy C hubs. Note that I have also mounted the outer top turnbuckle on the top of the kingpin.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Default Tosolini's SD Setup

I realize Chris has a thread, however, sometimes it takes a while to have questions answered, and other times the question may not get answered.

Anyway...

In the comments section of his (11/30/03) setup sheet it says: "USED 4MM PLASTIC SHIMS ON SHOCKS SHAFTS AS BUMPSTOPS" Do you think that he is referring to internal shock limiters? I'm guessing they are internal since his ride height is "4.5mm".

Also...

When the SD setup sheet shows Lower Suspension Arm Position, then gives a number like 2.0mm, does this referr to a spacer of that width inserted in front and behind the arm?

Some of these questions may seem elementary to some of you but, for me it's been 2 years since I raced touring cars, and my last car didn't have all of these adjustments.

The bumpstop spacers go on the outside of the shock. They are used to keep the car from rollong over to far.

The number listed for the lower suspension arm is the thickness of spacer at that end of the arm. It goes between the arm and the suspension block.

That is a cool pic! Thanks for posting that. Pops- the pic I have seen of Masami's car was the one put on the PreWorld Host Website. They have a pic of the car from the side view.
Will get link up.....

DROOP

I use AE shocks with AE shock ends.I run on asphalt. What is a good droop setting...


I had a friend set the droop, he said he set it at 6 and 5...


But when I went to check the front droop it looks like he set it at 8...
Do u set the droop with the shocks on or off...
He also told me to check the front droop setting using the back of the front a-arm...


Any help would me good...

The car handles good...I was just checking settings.

I used the stock 40w all the way around my car...

I had the same problem were the the front/rear -arms weren't level.
So we threaded the shock ends (front/rear) out a little to get the droop set at 6f....5r

Your shock length is too short. Start with a length of at least 62.5mm in front and 60mm in rear. Yoke oil of 450 is a good starting point.
