Getting faster every pack. Question, what do people look to change to increase on power steering? Caster in front? Rear droop? Stiffen the rear?

I liked my car with a harder rear roll bar.
Had 1.3 in front and 1.1 rear. I moved to 1.3 in the rear and car was faster.

Hoping to get some assistance, when going from soft springs to the new chassis and the STD spring. What is a good rule of thumb. I can come close too the previous number and rating I was at but want to make sure

Front old 6.6 / 5.0. = 61.3 gf/mm. rear old. 5.6 / 5.4 = 69.1gf/mm

New std spring front 6.8 / 0.8 = 62.3 gf/mm????

I went to the European site and looked up the FCB and there is a picture.

Thank you for the sway bar suggestion John, I will try it today.

Same for me Still need to work on the car and the pilot but my car is great!
For the people that like the "L" simplicity in 17.5 the new aluminum chassis + short braze is working great for me :



PM me if you want to have a look at my setup.

I put my P42 on the inside of the sway bar, right before the anti-roll bar tower
I don't think this is a better solution, but I prefer like that.

Can I have some explanations on the different flex mode of the new motor mount?

Here is what I understood from the diagram on Awesomatix USA website:
- mode 1: rear gearbox with only 3 screws + 1 set screw in the middle of the motor plate without any shims
- mode 2: rear gearbox with only 3 screws + 1 set screw in the middle of the motor plate with the 1mm shim
- mode 3: rear gearbox with 5 screws + 1 set screw in the middle of the motor plate with the 1mm shim
- mode 4: rear gearbox with 5 screws + 2 normal screws in the motor plate with 1mm shim for each screw.

Am I wrong?

Thanks in advance,
G-rem

My understanding : (I may be wrong )

- mode 1: rear gearbox with only 3 screws + 1 set screw in the middle of the motor plate without any shims
- mode 2: rear gearbox with only 3 screws + 1 set screw in the middle of the motor plate with the 1mm shim
- mode 3: rear gearbox with 3 screws + 1 normal screw in the middle of the motor plate with the 1mm shim
- mode 4: rear gearbox with 3 screws + 3 normal screws in the motor plate with 1mm shim for each screw.

I found the mode 3 a good compromise and found mode 2 and mode 1 a little bit to dangerous for my driving skills...

This is not the first time this sort of issue occurs on a spool.
Oleg, are you considering the possibility that this after all is a weak spot !?
[IMG][/IMG]

Rebuilt one spool with spares from other three, Devcon epoxy & carbon fibre to keep the dam thing together :-(
