Thanks tom.

Everything went well until round 4 and then my amain hopes in TC stock and superstock disappeared.

Default setup help

hi guys,

i was testing the bd5w on our new winter track were the next ETS will be held. we are driving solaris wheels on sugar water treated tarmac. the grip on the track is great and the car was almost perfect. almost!

it suffers from understeer in mid corner and corner exit. any ideas of how to get rid of it?? i want the car to have less understeer and carry more cornerspeed in general. other than that the car is great.

glad for any pointers. attached a link to the current setup.

thx guys!!!!

Hi guys, hi Vitomon,

I drive on asphalt in France so it's cold now and I have exactly the same feeling that you Vitomon about the BD5 W.

Try going to shock position 3 all round, or 2 front, 3 rear. And remove Anti dive from the front. U should really be using traction compound front and rear also I would also try harder springs when doing this, so silvers all round would be a good option.

thx antoni. i am actually using traction compound front and rear, was just too lazy to fill in

i started the day with shock positions 3/3 bu the 4/4 felt better and hat a 0.2s advantage per lap over the 3/3. but will give it another try with the harder springs and without the anti-dive.

what do you think of harder shock oil and or increased right height??

cheers

- wider rear track = more on power steering
- increased front camber (up to 2.5 deg) = more mid corner and overall steering
- front toe = .5-1.5 "negative"
- could, lower the front roll center and raise the rear
- make sure your diff isn't too tight

These things have worked for me, hope it helps.

What is your droop? too much weight is being transffed in the rear in mid and exit (on power), so less traction on the front... softer spring in the front or or stiffer spring on the rear so it doesn't transfer much weight on the rear, or higher ride height on the rear. you can also try more droop on the front. what chassis are you using the super flex (more holes) or the regular. but I hope you get the point why it is pushing...it more about weight distrubution.

I m building my shocks now, I downloaded some of the set up sheets from petit rc. Most of 'em are using 1.1mm 3 holes piston, which part no is it? Correct me if I m wrong, the included pistons are 1.0 mm right? Also whats the difference in handling between the included blue diaphragm and the optional black one?

Also, where can I get info on suspension blocks combination? I m confuse by the manual info given which only gives measurement instead of toe deg.

Just drill the 1.0mm piston to 1.1mm size.

As for the suspension mount:

42 + 47.1 = 3.5 rear toe
42 + 46.4 = 3.0 rear toe
42 + 45.7 = 2.5 rear toe
41.3 + 47.1 = 4.0
And so on

Thanks for the info guys, now where can I find 1.1mm drill bit? I do have a set of metric size drill bits but the increment is in 0.5mm, so I have 1.0mm and the next one is 1.5mm.

Also where do you guys measure your droop from? Bottom of the arm?
