now that would be telling.............here you go

FRONT

springs: xray RED
oil: xray 30wt
no kickup
0* toe
middle hole on shock tower
1 hole closed on adjustable shocks
2mm wire swaybar
2mm droop with 63mm tyres
3mm ride height
plastic c-hubs
upper arm on shock toweruter most hole
ackermann standard
short arms
42 shore 26mm wide rears. ellegi (GRP) brand. LIME's should be the same

REAR

springs: xray RED
oil: xray 30wt
no kickup
2* toe in
3rd outermost hole on shock tower
1 hole closed on adjustable shocks
2mm wire swaybar
2mm droop with 63mm tyres
4mm ride height
plastic c-hubs
inner lower shock position
standard position for the upper arm
short arms
40 shore 26mm wide rears ellgi (GRP) brand. Purples should be the same(i looked at the trinity site to match the shore to the colour)

this setup is very fast at my track, i have fastest lap by about 1/2 a second, 1 of 2 to do 20 laps, but i hold fastest overall time.

next things to change will be, heavier springs, longer wheelbase, 1* toe in on the rear, stand front and rear shocks up a hole. balance the car if its a bit taily or a bit stuck to the track with the rear shock adjustment.

give that a try and let me know what happens

this is on a factory kit aswell. if you have an evo2 the only thing different is the rear shock tower, in that case stand them right up. if you dont have them, try the short arms, makes the car easy to drive, you could also then try the long arms one race then the short arms the next to see whats faster and or easier to drive.

Lopez was using the long arms in that setup? I've heard rumo'rs he doesn't care for the short arm setup much.

I also noticed Cyrul's setup doesn't appear to be using the short arms? Also, what's up with the battery positions and camber?

It was posted here that Alex tried the short arms at that race, but the car had too much roll. That is a great setup for an EVO2, but he ran short arms (i.e. the Factory Kit) at Snowbirds and the Nationals.

Cyrul has said he prefers the short arms and has been running the car that way pretty much since he got it--he was definitely running short arms in that setup. He's also been running his batteries forward on the left side for some time, with the exception of the US Indoor Champs (I think he might have mentioned why in his thread). What are you noticing about the camber settings?

The asymetric camber is used to compensate for different types of corners. Most tracks have one high speed sweeper which will require a different setup then the slower speed stuff.

All setups are a compromise between low / medium / high speed, turn radius, driving line, traction and surface smoothness. It might be perfect on one part of the track, but not on another. good setups are better on most parts of the track while sacraficing as little as possible on the other parts of the track.

The staggared batteries move more mass to the front. This will reduce the amount of weight transfer at throttle lift. Makes the handling more consistent from power on to power off and takes away a bit of steering on entry. If you don't run a BMI chassis - the staggared batteries are the way to go for carpet - makes the car more predictable.
