Default Gearing

I just got a T1FK and I need some starting points for gearing a 10x1, 19t, and a stock motor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I use one-ways on my local track( lap times about 8.0 secs and under)
and I use diffs when I go out of town to a bigger track. But I do have a extra one. I also have a extra FK too. Send them to me and my semi-world class pitbiatch will fix them.
Talked to Jason today about 27t Quad motors- he wants to borrow one of mine for this weekend

Front camber link?

I have a T1FK, how will the car react if I put the front camber link in the shorter, front bulkhead holes? Do I need to add spacers to raise the ball up level with the shock tower holes? Will this increase steering going into a turn or out of the turn?
Thanks,
Paul

With shorter upper links, you will have more camber change as the suspension is compressed. Instead of asking people what the car will do, run the car with different changes to see how the car will react. The reason why I say that is because everyone has a certain driving style with a different setup. What will work for one person, won't for another.

Built the kit as per instructions.
Throw the kit to the Hudy Set Up station.
Set up the car at stock set up.
And enjoy ~~~~~~~~

Also matters on what tires you run up front. If you run foam with dual compounds (plaid, etc.) more camber change will expose the inside, softer compound and give you more grip.

Alternatively, changing the camber gain also impacts the roll center of that end. Generally, the shorter, more angled camber links will reduce the mid corner grip. It will also impact the rate of roll into and out of the corner.

So a shorter link may reduce the amount of middle corner grip by changing the roll center; unless you expose the softer inside donut - then you get more grip. Untill you get so much camber change you reduce the contact patch substantially. Got it?

Oh, dampers, springs, weight distribution, caster, ackermann also impact this.

So - Not only is this a driving style thing, but also a tire, and other setting thing.

Your car is a system, you need to learn how changing one setting will impact the performance. You might make it better in one area of the track, but worse in another. Ultimatly setup is a compromise to maximize grip and balance, and minimize drag and unpredictable behavior.

Best advice - get lots of practice and ask for input from other drivers at your track. I've yet to meet anyone who is not willing to help.

Sands-ran the BMI Xray last night-one lousy pack is all I had time for. Cars got mad potential and given that I hadnt driven an XRay for months and even then it was one or two packs and a completely new set-up (I usually make one change at a time) I went faster than with my other car and felt very comfy driving it.

ON-power push though. I ran something close to Josh's Nats set-up, but had 3mm rear uptravel (droop), Blue springs in back and the fornt camber link in #2 not #3 on shock tower.

I am guessing and hopefully with your input that going to 2mm droop, #3 front camber link and violet springs should bring about a lot more rotation and square the car up on exit?

Thanks,
Ray
