Oleg,

Thanks for the positive feedback !

When will you release new chassis and square block and how to order ? I want to get the new parts ASAP as I am no good at that very delicated job.

Thanks again.

Thanks hana166.
At present i just set the car to what i think is right and over the day have a look and feel what my friends cars damping is like and adjust my setup to feel the same then ask what oil and thats been working o.k but it would be good to know in number terms what it means.
Cya

So which is it ??? Does it lower or raise the roll Center ??? I think it lowers it , but is it too far down and could require too much spring for the dampers ???

I used to use a dry wax, it's actually a liquid that dries and doesn't collect dust. I ran the covers on my diffs, and finally went to a thick thrust bearing grease that looks like peanut butter, it was made by much more I believe, worked nicely. That said, nothing is strictly needed.

The sample ( setup) of AM26, AM06S, AM18-1 and ST24 using is attached here.
This setup should be good for high traction conditions.

The corresponding suspension geometry sizes pictures are attached also.
It will be useful for users of RCRollCentreV162 calculator and RCCrewChief2012 program.

Please note that the using of AM26+AM06S+ST24 combination on the rear suspension provides very big camber gain ( 0,91 deg) at relatively low roll center ( -9.05mm).
So the rear tires will save the good side grip to bigger side roll angles.

So the Am26S does lower the roll Center... I'll stick with the original version for now....

The sample of very low (-13,5mm) roll centers setup is attached here.
This setup should be popular.
For reducing of side roll in case of you will need it:
1. Use a bit stiffer stabilizers on front and rear;
2. Use a bit stiffer springs setting on front and rear;
3. Remove 0.5mm shims under inner upper balls on front and rear.

Not AM26 !

AM06S and 0.0mm inner lower shims make the roll center lower.

AM26 provides bigger camber gain at the moderate low rear roll center.

Lowest roll centers setup at all standard A700L kit parts.
-12,3 mm of the roll centers is possible for setting.

Thanks for the correction Oleg ! I measured the distance between the wheel axis and the hinge pin in my tc4 , and it's about 15mm, the same as the standard AM06 , which should lower the roll Center far enough to start...

Yeah been following this with interest, only a second in it over 5 min and outright fastest lap. Will be interesting to see how the guys got the car on the pace with the mod set ups.
