- heavier shock oil all around
I also took a little steering out with exponential, to tame it just off center. Hope it helps, worked for me.

Greetings, Luis C.
Shouldn't need a heavier front bar, you may lose steering on corner entry. I'm running TC6 1.25 (black) sway bars front and rear and the car is consistent through the corner.

What body are you using? You can try moving the rear wing a little bit rearwards.

I'm missing 30 grams. ¿I ride the two front pieces
15 grams? ¿I put the steel fasteners for the part of
down to the chassis? ¿I put more weight to the center of the chassis?
¿I distribute around the chassis?

For me work well, especially when the grip going up, with a 1.3 front bar and 1.2 rear is sometimes a little nervous, of 1.4 bar has calmed down the front and loss of direction is insignificant.

Thanks, Luis C.

Conejero, donde has perdido el peso? ...

Could anyone kind enough to tell me what the bump steer setting on the setting sheet means?
What is the effect on handling if I put spacer there?

Default specR double joint shafts

hi guys,

i recently tried the spec-r double joint shafts for the bd5 in the front of course. performance on track is way better than with the standard shafts but i incurred a problem, maybe you guys can pitch in to help.

the shafts seem to touch the inner side of the c-hubs and on a slight touch or crash the c-hubs break very easily. i already used up 5 c-hubs in the last race meeting before the double joint shafts i used one c-hub for many months.

any ideas what could be the problem or any of you guys found a solution??

greets
v

yes you should remove a bit material of the c-hubs (by knife is fine). plastic c-hubs dont break so easy compared to the graphite ones, so in case there is a track where you break a lot graphite c-hubs, you should switch to plastic.

a sunny day on an asphalt track with medium or high traction is perfect but i do like carpet racing a lot, consistent track condition and often very challenging.
