I went from 1.5 to 1 on camber this weekend at the Hudy and mellowed out the rolling on my X1 18. Also, i seem to roll more if i add caster. The rest is spot on, in my opinion.

Default Thanks

Thanks for the comments. What about going to a lighter, or heavier tube lube for the side tubes.

Lighter frees up the car quicker steering. Heavier tightens the car up. On black carpet I usually am at 15k in the tubes and 30k on the kingpins

Rob, any chance you can post a picture of the jig?

On a Roche F1 EVO is it normal that when using the CRC tires that the rear width is 5mm narrower than if I use the Volante tires? What width is a good starting point for CRC tires in the front and rear?
