it used to be fine...dont know why it's like this now all of a sudden

My left toe in was off to but found out it was my setup station that was a little off. You can also check for a bent pivot ball or bent screw or try new rear uprights

I think someone already mentioned this matter in the past. With the Speedtech's locked diff I think you have to limit the amount of travel of the steering, otherwise it is quite normal to hear that noise. Maybe someone else might give you more detailed information

I am currently using a locked diff made locally using also Alex's original one way cups and I have no problem at all

Yes, was really quite impressed with my R3. I raced first time with it in modified last National Race Meeting and finished 3rd overall in the last race. Taking in consideration that it was only my third race meeting ever in our open modified class and that the drivers who placed 1st and 2nd has been racing modified for years, I think it is quite a good result

Working on some final touches and will be posting the setup shortly

When I ran my spool I had the same problem plus if I touched anything it would strip my front gear. Running spools is very hard on the front drivetrain on any car but shaft cars it even seems to be harder yet on the car.

I've tried changing new arms, and even changing to new pivot balls. the screws look fine, and my setup station is fine too because you can see that the left toe is way off compared to the right without needing a set up station to read the numbers when i bolted on some set up wheels.

If its a 27 stock, I geared my Matrix V10T at 27/72 and it absolutely flew

Anybody need a Square CF front bumper brace? In excellent like new condition. This part is highly sought after and no longer made..... $30.00 shipped.

Hey, have you still got this? I'll take it if you'll ship to the UK

Yes folks, I'm still around, although not raced since last October
Will be trying to do a few outdoor events this summer, probably all at Carlisle. Just starting to look at getting new tyres, motors, spares for the Cuda Old cells will have to do, I hope they're ok after not being used for so long

Blimey Herm, you've appeared out of hibernation at last!! Did kind of wonder where you had disappeared to.
Only Carlisle, get down to Halifax for the BRCA mod round in July. We got some Cudas going and should be a real hoot. Hope to even have something new to try there if Alex pull their finger out that is
You just doing 19 turn up there again????

l8r geezer

Oh.....by the way, how long did it take you to catch up on this thread??? not quite as long as in the old days eh

Anyone got a medium/large sized tarmac track setup? Got the chance to get down to one of the TORC championship venues before it starts this year, its Ashby for you UK guys, its a fairly bumpy track in a bowl shaped area, so a few banked corners, ive been told that a tight front diff works well or a sp000l but not a one way. Anyone able to hook me up? Thanks. Will be running CS22's as its a control tyre, 22s or 27s, but as its freezing it will be 22s.

Yeah, didn't take long to read the couple of pages that were posted since I last looked. Boy things are slow here

Looking like I'll just do a few outdoor events this summer, nothing big, I'm probably pretty rusty.

I'll be running 19Turn again, especially since at Carlisle I won't be loosing much to the mods.

Gaz probably has some setups for you Berger, I have one for Carlisle that I like but it's with a one way and it's a smallish/medium track.

I'm after a good wheel/insirt combo for CS22's. Have used premounts up until now and I'm sure the insirt could be improved on with something a touch harder.

I think you can use the medium, medium hard or hard CS inserts and your choice of wheel if you are building them yourself, but i cant really afford to spend loads buying tyres and inserts to try.
