DaveW - Naa, I'd rather win on my own with out a "blocker"...lol... As far as the string - it's there - you just have to catch it!!

Kevin - It may work, but does it work the way it's meant to at the speed it should??

Josh - The attached Excel sheet will calculate and track the movement of the roll center of the 'new style' associated front end as the chassis compresses and/or rolls. The design and physics behind Excel sheet are correct but some assumptions were made by the author to simplify the geometry and there is some calculation round off error. The answers are fairly accurate though...

Default Chassis tweak

Hi Josh ,

Just wondering if you have experienced any chassis tweak on the evo2. If I set the ride height at 5mm on front and 6mm on rear. And droop at 3 f+r. The sides of the chassis is different from 6mm on right side and 6.5to 7mm on the left side. Please let me know if there is anything i can do.

The 321-S is the laydown version of our low wind motor brush. The K series motors have laydown brushhoods. The S is for stock, only because most Mods have stand up brushes.

Josh, i have seen you drive man... trying to catch that string on the back of your car... is like dangling a carrot on the end of a stick in front of a donkeys mouth to motivate him to move... only to laugh as it stays JUST out of reach! And expecting the donkey to be fast about it?!? The difference between that donkey and me? I know i aint ever gonna catch that "carrot".

:note: No sidejokes in reference to "donkey" as an "a$$" or calling me "jack" will be tolerated. Get your own jokes guys!

Sorry, thought i would add a little of my silly humor to the thread this morning!

The X Ray setup you have posted on mytsn for the Cleveland Champs, does that use the short, or long arms?


Also, now that you've been running the XRay for a few weeks, what are you impressions? What sort of things should we expect to see new from XRay?

What is the benefits or short arms? I just bought the kit. I assume I'm running the longer arms? Should I change them?

Traction rolling has, on occasion, been my achilles (sp?) heel.

Besides CA on the tire's side-wall, what steps do you take (setup-wise) to relieve excessive traction roll?

Specifically, right now, I am running touring on carpet, but I am basically looking for some steps to take if it becomes a problem on any surface.
