Cristian, with the pulleys use 34 for stock and superstock. In mod ise the 38 but in 10.5 i use 34. I cant notice much of a difference in 10.5, and it is easier to gear with the 1.7 internal. 38 is definatly better in mod though

Hi guys
I'm just wondering whats the bad effect of the using too much negative Camber?
I usually set -2 degree frnt and rear (on very low grip tight carpet ) and it feels good but on the otherside I've recently checked setup sheets and very few people uses -2 Camber...
It's a bit confusing
more negative on front =more steering
more negative at the back=less traction
is that correct?
Thanx in advance

Not correct.

More negative on front = more front side to side traction
More negative on rear = more rear side to side traction

But its only one small piece of the puzzle. You also have roll center, camber gain, and a dozen other things that can affect or counter affect it also.

If you're uncomfortable with too much neg camber, try increasing camber gain by changing the upper linkage on the shock tower boy rotating the ball joint. There's nothing wrong with going 2 degrees though. I use that sometimes. Gives a more even tire wear as well on tighter tracks. I use sorex 36/40 mostly.

It feels exactly like that but thing is even on very low asphalt setups team drivers not prefer to use -2 degree..,
And another point, is leaning rear tires inwards too much (-2) cause any negative effect (lack of traction) on slow corners?
but my car definitely feels much more controllable with -2 Camber
Thanx Guys

Does anybody know where I can purchase the XRAY LiPo balancing weights (With L brackets) or have a set that they want to sell? I can't find a store with these in stock.

Thanks
