Anyone have any suggestions on what to change setup wise to adapt to the tires.
It depends on what the different tires do to the car, loose, push, traction roll?
I personally have never ran Solaris tires so I don't know what differences performance wise.

I find the 2011 became loose with the Solaris tires.
i'll try Paul's setup and see what happens.

Thanks for the info everyone.

gotta say the car is probably the best quality of all my cars.

You can also try less traction compound on the front until they break in. Even on new sets of JACOs I run about 50% on the front for the first battery or two.

F1 cars have always had sparks etc coming from underneath on most tracks at some point with or without the active suspension.

No, he died from a combination of low tyre pressure (having been behind a safety car for a while) and then pushing to the limit before they reached working temps.
Car bottomed out (how ironic in this conversation) and he lost control, the steering column broke on impact with the wall.

Yes, active suspension had been banned and the Williams without it that year had been handling horribly. Indeed Senna had been worried about the car's unpredictability all weekend. Of course he had to get in the car on Sunday, but we all wish he hadn't

Orlando,
pretty sure myself, Big Al, and Alex Valls are all running the kit set-up. I know i am using the solaris tires with no probs (not sure what the Al's are using for tires) not sure how many runs you have on them, if they were freshies they may need a couple of runs before they come in. I have prob 3 weeks and a lot of practice on mine with no issues, hot lap in the main was a .5 and i did a .6 . . . PM me if you need anything . . .

Try Pauls setup (Or mine from snowbirds) as they are pretty much the same. I have ran Jaco Blues, Sweep and Solaris tires. I have not really had to change nothing other than .5 degree of camber (more with jaco than others) and the car has been really really good on all.

Hi there. Almost finished my new T3. Was wondering have a much more tire warmer and was wondering how long to heat the tires for and at what temperature to aim for?

Thanks.

Chris is right!..... The kit set-up is REAL close and works real well with the Solaris tires. Didn't know you were having so much problems with handling. Bring your car over to us so that we can give it a complete check up...... We have a lot of time before the first Main goes out.

Thanks, good price. Though it looks like they are out of stock on both Stormer and Amain hobbies.

EA,

I was looking at your setup for the 'Birds, specifically your rear toe-in. Off the sheet it looks like you ran the 1.5mm shim + 1 degree uprights which would give you 4 degrees of toe-in if I'm not mistaken but the final toe in box has 3.5 degrees marked.

and .. Pauls Cleveland setup has 0.4mm shims + 1 degree uprights which should give 2.5mm but the final is stated as 3.5mm ..

Just checking the math .. wondering what the final toe-in should actually be?

Yes what I had checked is correct. If you measure it you will have 3.5 degrees total with that setup. At least on my setup station it did. Paul has the wrong shim checked on his. It should be 1.5mm shim also with 3.5 total.
