All the week end the car was fantastic, I will make an editable PDF of the MSXX setup sheet and post my setup.

EDIT : I have now attached a Jpeg version of the setup, anyone wanting a PDF PM me.
Hi TRFboy:

couple of questions, if you don't mind:
1) Which placement of the cells: towards the front or rear?
2) overall balance? which final weight did you reach?

thanks!!

I have a problem with parts coming loose on the MRE I dont want to force the screws too much as they strip out. I dont use loctite because then it wont come loose. I am thinking of using silicone or shoegoo on the threads.

Any thoughts. Thanks..

Next week we have the 2nd leg of the championship so I am preparing the car. the asphalt is new so there should be mild to high traction. the track is wid e and flowing any suggestions on setup that will make my life easier and testing quicker..

you only need a *touch* of BLUE loctite, just put a tiny bit on the tip and it will work its way up the threads as you screw in

We always use the cells on the front. Every time we tried on the back the rear end wold act like a pendulum, not good.

Overall my car weights 1395g with personal transponder.

Also the droop values which I didn't have time to check this morning are 3 on a droop gauge all around.

Hi,

I use them and they work great for me. I can't really tell you how different the car is since I've thrown them in the winter and just left them when we started to run on tarmac, but with a completely different setup compared to last season.

For the shock rebound, if you are talking about how much the shock shaft will come out by itself when pushed and released, then I use about half of the shock length, always.

thanks for that! yeah, I've seen very few people actually using the cells on the back...

can you post a picture? I'm finishing mine and will really benefit on having an overall view... thanks dude!

anyway, I've seen you are from uk, which area?

I have never had a screw strip and I tighten them as much as I can, it prevents the car from tweaking. All you need is a good wrench and to make sure your screws aren't in bad condition.

I guess I ll use the touch of loctite to make sure everything stays where they are supposed to.

Bad, but surprisingly on the track the car's good and the chassis is flat without having to have different preloads L/R.
