Awesome!. Never could get the pdf calculator working.

Just one question, is the spring rate calculated the spring rate at the wheel or the actual spring rate?.

It's calculating the exact some numbers that are in the manuals graph which looks like spring rate at the wheel. (vertical force / vertical displacement of the wheel)

I received the equations from Oleg so there accurate. Same goes for the sway-bar values on the swaybar tab.

Note, there's a SPR01S and an SPR01 tab depending on the spring your using.

a little help needed. up untill las weekend i have been fairly dominant with my a700l. now everybody had caught up on the asphalt. now i need to up my game. the setup was from jaybee bryson and its a carpet setup i think. car is easy to drive but im looking for more out of it. i need a little guidance on a good asphalt setup (base setup) to go from.

here is current setup https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0Z2...5oV29YSTg/edit

he ran this on carpet and i have not changed the car. it works but now im having to really wring it out to stay ahead. im looking for a better asphalt setup. most of the tracks are a little bumpy but not rough. and most treat with soda pop. let me know whats on the awesomatix site for a good asphalt setup. thanks, doug.

Here is the L setup with chassis and top deck flex settings. Front link shimming is a little different too without the ffg.

with the new FFG1.1 parts, by far the most exciting upgrade is the AM46-1 + AM54-1 + B74RS. This provides a SUPER SMOOTH action to the FFG.

Question guys, I'm racing the 700L US Spec on carpet, I just purchased the Raceberry chassis. Has anyone used the Raceberry chassis on carpet? If you have what is the advantage of using this chassi on carpet?

Thanks for the help guys!

Josh used one to win mod TC at mile high / Denver. Might "stall" too much for stock... But should be great in mod...
