thanks sosidge, but i was more interested in taking out kickup, instead of adding it. any ideas?

what DickemDown was saying was right. you put them shims under the front rear block, the block in rear of the front gear housing.

Only thing i dont like about that is. your messing with the rollcernter when you do that. I'm going to stray and make a 0 front block like the other cars.

Is Yok going to come out with more blocks ?

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

DICKEM.

Sosidge is quite correct. Standard set up is 4 degree block and 1 degree suspension mount at the front.

If you want to remove all the kick up simply put a 1mm spacer below the rear mount - always talking about the front suspension of course. But that will only give you a total of 4 degrees caster, which may not be enough. I would prefer more.

Raising the roll centre is not necessarily a bad thing. You can play front to rear to your advantage.

I must stress that my present set up is very much a first try guess. It is not bad, but not as good as my BD car. But I have no doubt that we will get there in the end. There are so many possibilities.

I see that at Bedworth last weekend Adam Rogers finished 2nd and Chris Grainger made 2nd TQ, both using their new SD cars. Does anyone know what sort of set up they were using?

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Barber,

I didn't make Minnesota this year, but was there the previous year. I race with Chris Doseck, Mo Denton, Mike Pulfer, Eli Ezrow, etc.... Basically the Cincy and Dayton Ohio gang....

Good call on the TC3 for carpet and foam tires. Nothing against the SD fellas. I just "personally" feel the SD is not a dominant car with foam tires.

JohnBull - you'll find Grainger's setup from the previous round at Stafford at CML's site, also on www.rczone.net. I was speaking to someone from CML the other day, and he did say they were still at very early days with the car, finding time with every run.

Hi Sosidge. greetings from malta.

Thanks for the info. I have just downloaded Chris's Stafford set up.

I agree that the cars are bound to get better with time. In fact I have just finished repairing the car from Sunday, rearranged the electrics with the addition of a fan - necessary in our heat, and am presently charging a few packs to try out at the track this evening.

At present I don't feel as confident with the car as I am with old faithful BD car, but I'm sure it can only get better. There's already less than half a second a lap difference so i'm getting there.

The next 3 rounds of our championship are being run on the long and very fast circuit. I was hoping to clinch the stock class last Sunday but didn't, so I will have to do the next round to get the necessary points to assure myself of the title. After that I will be running the remaining 2 rounds in the mod class.

You can see the latest race report, championship standings, etc in our club website www.irmcc.com

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

The right setup makes a huge difference !

JohnBull, I've noticed that you have the shocks layed down. I've tried that on another car, but when I raised them - and corrected the setup to suit this - I became faster.

They also describe it in this setup guide - look under "Suspension" and/or "Touring car setup guide - Upper shock mounting location".

A given setup might work well for you, but not for me - and vice versa. But maybe it's worth considering.

Johnbull: so where are the pics of your car? You holding out on us!

I was quite excited to see that i surpassed my laptimes with my KX-1 with the SD in my first full weekend of racing it. I would love to see what results I get when I get the one way and some more springs for the car.

Default Chris....

Moster should be a final of 7.25 to 7.75 depending on the track.Youll have to figure it out as I don't own this car.19 turn is similar try starting about 6.75-7.0 go higher if needed.Just some starting points.
