John was super helpful when i had questions about my battle axe. I had problems with the center shock and needed some additional parts. John called me back within hours and everything i needed was in the mail that day. I'll be the first to admit i can be a pain, questions and all. Absolute gentleman. I don't know anybody at CRC but as long as they are building pan cars they have my business. T

Chris,
How did moving the cell back and all the electronics forward make it more aggressive? In what way?
Thanks and God Bless

Sorry fella only just saw your reply.
Moving the weight to the rear give more turn in and I had my car setup with lots of turn in anyways so this just added to it.

I have updated the blog again http://rcgtpancars.blogspot.co.uk/

Had to drop in to thank team CRC for giving me the BEST WGT car on the market! I finished 2nd at the ROAR region 5 Champs. My car was AMAZING all through qualifying, and absolutely diabolical in the main. A little bit better luck, (and by that, I mean driving), and I might've won!

Congrats Ian! I think I'll have to try the long arm front and new rear top plate. I was just looking at my car for giggles and it appears to me that by putting the new top plate on, the connecting point for the shock is ahead of the front to rear balance point. I just wonder how that affects weight transfer, maybe less drastic?

Hmmm not sure how that would effect it, would be interested to hear how you get on with the long arm front end though.

I'll have it ready to test by Thursday I hope, Saturday at the latest. The parts for the long arm conversion should get to me by Wednesday. I'm lucky though. I can hand my car to Ian and he can tell me what's wrong with it.

Glad to be of service John!

I actually never really gave any thought as to why the forward shock mounting position would offer more steering, I just knew from years of pan car racing that it would......

My synopsis of it's effects on handling, (with no pseudo-scientific reasoning, as I'm no engineer), are as follows. The forward mounting point increases steering significantly. I was actually able to decrease my center spring rate considerably, without ANY loss of steering. The reduction in spring rate seemed to make the car more stable over bumps, and offered a bit more forward bite as well.

As for the long arms, they really tend to smooth out the car mid-corner by reducing the amount of camber gain through the suspension's travel. If you've found your car to be "tippy", this is a great option to try. It will however take a fair amount of steering away. I compensated for the reduction in steering by going to softer springs.

After my new phone arrives, I'll take pics and post my set-up. The car really excels in high grip conditions........
