Or you can do it and leave the car for 2-3 days with little bit bearing oil in ball studs.

Are there any titanium hingepins available for the TC6? The stock items seem a bit heavy.

Jorge, Cristian I gave A3 a try today. I kept all the settings the same as I would for B0; droop, camber positions and stud heights etc. The car felt like it had a lot more traction but it didn't feel as quick on turn in. Had to leave before changing anything else on the chassis.

Doesn't Lunsford have a set for TC6?

What are your other settings? Was the extra traction something that you were looking for? If you have too much grip, you might have to start stiffening your springs. Which springs are you using?

For more turn in, you can lean in your front shocks. I run them either all the way in or 1 hole out in the front. You can also change your ackerman. This is a super drastic change, but you can always run a more aggressive setting and turn down your Dual Rate/ Steering Throw.

That's what I'm running apart from XRAY 2.8 on the front and 2.6 springs on the rear. And of course I was running A3.

I wasn't really after a change to the B0 setup to be honest. It was just nice to try something different!

I appreciate your advice.

Like i said, A3 could be a matter of those conditions i've raced. Been ill since that race and been unable to practice more. Sometimes the more confortable setup is not the fastest. If you checked petitrc for my setups you'll see the changes i've made since B0 to A3, and to be honest A3 was my last move. My suggestion is to shortening first wheelbase (F&R/L&R) in general and then give a try to A3. At the end of the day its just my opinion, it's what you feel that matters.

Put the black swaybar back in the F on to get more turn in back. The shorter wheelbase as stated by Jorge will also give you slightly more turn-in but make it push on exit. Lay in your front shocks, run more rear toe (it will make it push on exit as well but the car will accelerate better with 3.0 deg rear toe). You can also put 1 more mm under the outside rear hub to raise your rear roll center a tid bit and get more rotation. Also, you can go back to 4 degree caster blocks. This will give you a lot more turn in.

Again, the question is, is your car better with the additional traction? Did it need more? Do you want to take some away? Do you just need more turn in?

How many degrees of Anti Squat in that Olly set-up? 3? And does the 3B rear camber link position equate to zero camber rise?

The silver is a 16.9lb spring, which is roughly about the same as the AE Blue and the HPI Blue is a 15.25lb spring which is slightly stiffer than the AE Silver.
