Rob: Hi, I used a 2.5mm chassis. no milling.

Mshap33: no problem atall, i would start in the rear with the long and high hole on the tower( but not the super high hole), and short with 2mm on the outside. this will be very close to paralell.

In the front i would start long and low with 0 under the caster block, but keep in mind to try long and high with 1.5 under the caster block if the car needs to be a bit easier to drive. you may have to play with it a bit.

Paul, was looking at the entries for the ROAR Nats. And it looks like Team Xray is basically sitting out this year. None of Xray's top drivers are signed up for Touring Mod. Is there a reason for this? It's sort of disheartening to see that one of the best teams in the industry would sit out of one of ROAR's largest events.

mshap33: no problem atall, let me know what you find out.

Broke: I dont think that we have talked on here much, its good to know their are more people reading this than are posting!. Thanks

Kraig: hopefully i can find some time soon to spend with him. i have just had so much going on lately that i dont know when i will be able too.

Rosco: (FOAMS ONLY) Hi , With Foam tires camber links are very critical, do to the fixed profile of the tire and the amount of traction. The more proper angle or the shorter the camber link the more "camber gain" you will have threw suspension travel.
In the front a paralell link should support the front end best because of a paralell likn's lack of camber gain. When you go shorter or add angle to your upper link, You get more chassis roll, that is why on most of my set-ups my front link is always within a 1mm shim of paralell.

In the rear i alkways run Much more camber gain because i like the rear of my car to roll. I have never been able to be succesful with a paralell link in the rear. For me the most stable rear link is Full Long with a lot of angle, Low on the rear tower with 4mm of shims under the hub. This dose take away steering but it is just more my style. Knowing this about the rear link you can now draw to your own conclusion about the other settings.

I know it is weird because i am contridicting my self with the rear link, by having a long link(less gain) then running alot of angle (more gain) at the same time. But in the end i could calculate the exact same amount of camber gain by having a much shorter link and it be paralell, and it would handle Totally different because of 1000 outside factors. But that is a whole nother thread and Frankly i wouldnt be able to understand my self if i tried.
