Does anyone have a setup for So.Cal. for the Rayspeed upgrade.
I went there two weeks ago and could not find a good combo,
I am running Yokomo dish rims with super thin Yok insert on Sorex 36Rs and have two bodys, Alfa2 and Nemisis. Any help would be appreciated as I am hoping to make a few more trips down to So.Cal. this year.
Thanks in advance,
Stephen <><
You could try chaning the tires to Sorex 28's.

Sorex 28R might be too soft for SoCal, and because of the incredible amount of traction, they will actually overheat 2 1/2 minutes into the race. Which is why guys are still run 36R (or 32R at the softest) even during winter time

Stephen, if you're gonna be out there on Saturday, I'll be out there as well, and we can reference each other's setup


lem2,

the YS-7-1 is available separately, and each part tree will have 2 of the triangluar piece you're looking for

I am thinking of running in the transmission tonight. I was going to hook it up to an old stock motor and run about 4Volts through it for a few hours. Does this sound o.k. ?
that's fine, your gears should be nice and broken in after that.

Can I order those things separately? (YS-7-1)
or
Can I rebuild the shock without the triangular things?
Has anyone tried it?
I used my shocks without the triangle piece before and it works fine but the O rings will get worn out quicker since the shock shaft will be able to move a bit on the bottom. You should be able to order the shock plastic pieces seperatly with no problem.

Quick check......

So I've got a home made setting board now (brothers a tool maker by trade) and can more accurately determine droop and ride height.

So I have ride height 4.5mm in front and 5mm rear and droop is 4mm in front and 3mm rear. Good starting figures?

4-3 droop is what I generally use on low-bite asphalt. It helps the car scavange some traction thru the corners. I generally run 6-5 as a starting point. If the car transitions to quickly, then I would lower arms.

If you have a smaller number on the droop gauge, would that give you better traction at that end of the car?

Well, first tracktest on carpet with my SDW, lowered my best laptime at Eskilstuna with about 0.3 seconds, about 1 lap faster in 5 minutes than both my SSG and CGM-cars, pretty awsome.
The SDW is great, much quicker in chicanes and fast corners. Standard setup worked pretty well but i changed to Yok Green springs all around (tractionrolled with softer springs ) lowered the rear inner camberlink, 1 mm of Kick-up and set downstop to 5 in front and 4 in rear. I also mounted the shocks on the outermost shocktower holes in front and rear.
Now i'm really looking forward to DHI Cup, just needs to paint some bodies (boring), Rayspeed Accord (same as Ride Accord? Looks like that to me..) and Yok Stratus E

Thanks Steve!! Sorry about the sorex, cause its always cold there that's why I thought it will be beneficial to use a softer tire. Anyways, id'nt run just watch when I was there.
Peace and Happy Racing!!

LEM2 - I believe PITSHOP has the part you need in stock. . . . Had to buy that same item (together with all the other parts that came with the 'tree') when I lost one of my shock tower mounting thingies a few months back.

SPARX - Glad to hear that you've already had the chance to put down SDW. Have to wait until tomorrow in my case, because of this other thing I have to do to support my hobby (work ).

With the modifications you have or are carrying out, can you say that you're essentially going towards the same setup as what you have with your SSG or CGM?

Ahh, forgot to say what tires
Sorex 28R's rubber, Tried CS22's too but they went trash because of whacked camber angles...

Not very much like my CGM, stiffer suspension and different wheelbase and such, so not that close. But my CGM was totally crap the last times i ran it...

*edit*
btw, how the hell do you quote two messages in the same reply in a good way?
