kschu- If you want more steering and/or quicker reaction run shorter front camber links and also shim the inside camber link position with 1.5-2.5mm.

I guarantee your car will have a TON more steering. Also you may want to try Orange or yellow Serpent springs up front and yellow or white Serpent rears.

Your rear toe is default setting but if you have any kind of traction 3 deg. is too much. Serpent has the different toe blocks...try running 2 or 2.5 deg of rear toe.

Try it out and let me know...

Butter

Ah Chu, still practising so hard? Previous race you got the 1st and TQ. What more do you want?? Give us some chance... I drove so hard until my camber link came off but still no luck in getting near to you..

Run shorter front camber links means you re-position the front camber links to other mounting holes to make the camber rod length shorter and add or deduct that orange spacers under the camber rod balls to change you roll center and the camber progressiveness during cornering...
Hope I got it right here....

Joel we have not gotten any back from the plex yet, they may still have some you could give them a call. Good to see you your stuff looked great from Nats. I was crazy buzy being DRO and did not have a lot of chat time but it looks like you got most of the good info.

kschu-jayjay is correct. Using the outer camber link position holes on the front bulkheads is the way to run "short" camber links. All you have to do is add the shims under the ball in order to change the roll center. Do you understand how it works now?

Hey Joel, I picked one up at Kamikaze, not sure if it was their last one or not. Serpent USA is waiting for them to come in, but it should be soon now.

You going to start running the car at Bending Cornerz? Mine was on rails last week.

BTW, I forgot to post this earlier, but the new Serpent belts are awesome. I put them on before racing last weekend and compared to the origional belts they are much more free spinning, and didn't stretch or skip at all with an Orion 3.0 turn motor. Whoever doesnt have them yet, pick them up, they are a major improvement.

kschu- This is Butter on Roly's computer.... Run the shims in board or on the bulk head side of the camber link.
