Default low grip ashpalt track on rubbers

Hi

I will be runing tomorrow on a low grip ashpalt track tomorrow on cs22's.

Should I add or remove spacers on the inner camber link to adjust the height and also on the role center adjustment for the wish bones to gain grip?

also should I use softer springs and shock oil? I have 40w oil f&r and xray white fromnt springs and xray blue green rears.

All help and comments welcome.

Thanks

Tony

You are too stiff even for high grip asphalt with your current setup. Drop the oil to 30wt all around and run some 14lb spring all around. Leave the roll centers alone for now and work with more accessible setting like ,oil spring and shock angle.

Hi Tony,

I think I currently have 35W front and 30 rear oil (for the cold weather).

Weather is still looking good for tomorrow.

thanks for the help.

In low grip do I want the car to roll more? Does raising the inner camber link mounts do this?

What effect does having the diff low/high?

Thanks

Tony

Skidins - what sort of gearing for a checkpoint 19t for tomorrow?

low grip yes you want more roll.making the camber links more parallel will give you a little more roll, also making the links longer. Longer link will give you grip in corners and in the middle part of the corner.

Lowering the front diff will make the car more aggressive going into the corners, raising it will smooth it out. Raising the rear diff should give you more forward traction, while lowering it should give more side to side bite from my experiences. Because of how much traction the Mi3 has, I almost always run the front diff low, and the rear diff high.

I gear a blue can Atlas at 5.17.
Never used a checkpoint I'm afraid.

On PW's 'Bigtrack' set-up, are the stock rear hubs used or the 1-degree ones?

I also like pw's big track kissimee setup with the 1deg rear hubs.....they give more rear rotation mid and exit but with no corner entry loosness. With the hubs I have just over 2.5* toe in per side

I still havent messed around with the 1 degree hubs on asphalt yet, I have the problem of finding a setup I like and not changing it..

I've also noticed that there's two of those set-ups floatin' around; one uses the MI2EC frt. & rear arms and the other, uses the med/flex ones. What's the feedback on the differences?
