Hey Paul,

How often do you check the Ask Wally Edmonds thread for set-up advice?

Default Camber for rubber tires


Typically what camber are you running for the front and rear for rubber tires and what hole position on the shock tower?

The other question is about shimming the camber link either on the front cast block or rear hub. What should I be running and what is the effect of raising the link up.

Paul - if you guys are running the Trinity / EP 4600s........ How do you recommend charging / discharging them? I have the zero 30 discharge tray and plan to dump them in that and then charge at 5 amps. Then storing them with around 500 mah in them. I've been out of electric since the 3800s and we could beat the crap out of those. If that doesn't sound right or there is a better way..... please let me know. Thanks

Bigdog: normally with rubber tires i run 1deg in the front and 2 in the back, that is pretty standard.
For camber links im not that great at with rubber tires, maybe barry could chime in with his thoughts, but i normally set out to run the front links as close to paralell as possible and the rear link with just a little bit below paralell with the arm, so basicly get the rear as parallell as you can eye ball it then add a 1mm shim to the rear hub to make it just off of parelell. that is usually close. from their what tires your running will determine how you will fine tune it, generally with a bigger side wall tire i may want to run a little more camber gain. with foam tires it is much easier to know because you have so much more traction that you can feel the smallest camber link changes, but unfortionately when you go to rubber it dosen't apply.
Steve wiess or barry may beable to elaberate a little more.

Gmschmidt: Ill be honest with you, i know that Dieter has been doing alot of testing with the newest cells and i have not been briefed lately as to what he has been finding, so i will get him on here to give you the latest.

Mtbboy: lol ill pm you that answer

Tcian: That is absolutely awesome, that is like a good fart (id clame that if i did it) LOL

Hi Paul, what is the first thing you change when you want to gain more steering on asphalt aside from tires.

Hi Kropy, Yes and thanks.

Francis: The first thing that i would do is play with sway bars, I would take my rear bar off and just see what it dose, then you will know what direction you have to go. if it picks up steering it means that more weight transfer over the rear gave you more steering(most likely my getting the inside front tire lighter than normal in a courner) if it makes the car push you know that more weight transfer over the rear gave you less steering (their fore you need to get more weight transfer over the front, maybe by a thinner front bar or thinner front oil.
I know that this didnt really answer the question but i guess what im getting at is that depending on the car, the same adjustment could be opposite. i have had everything go both ways. But that is what i would do and sawy bars are always a very noticible change for me on asphalt, that is why i usually start with them to try and get a direction.
