the car seems pretty well planted (enough to win) but on fast hairpins the front seems to bottom out on the chassis, i went up to 22lb but it still does it, other than that when the grip comes up the rear end is just was to planted for me, i need to free it up slightly but with out wrecking the rest of the handling... i thought maybe raise the inner rear camber link to the top row?

If anyone has any better suggestions, i would like to hear them

Thanks


What rollcenter positions are you using, front and rear?

Try 1 deg rear toe and shorten rear camber link on tower and maybe even move to middle hole on hub (gives link more angle).

Take a look at Ertrachters setup from Vegas at Corallyusa.com

Default belt flipping

If there is anything else you guys would like to see just let me know.
I really want to figure this out. Don't mind all the dirt just got back from racing last night.

RC W
how loose are you running the belts?
long shot....but is the front belt running again the spur gear plate, looks it's favoring the inner side....if that makes any sense...

Woody: I think I may see a potential problem... in the pic 'driveshaft2.jpg' where you are showing the center layshaft, it is in the highest most position... I don't have my car in front of me, but I think that this will allow the front belt to be way looser than the rear belt... what I do is center this shaft then push down on both belts and adjust the shaft up or down until both belts are tensioned the same... hope this helps!!!

Actually all the way up makes it the tightest. Is it possible it is too tight? When I have it all the way up it is really tight.

You might be onto something. Wouldnt a thicker spur gear push everything over (away from where he has his belt tensioner)? My spur gear is just slightly thicker then my belt.

possibly a combination of both...maybe..
spur gear might be too thick....and that rear belt looks mighty loose....perhaps making the front a bit too tight..not allowing a proper centering..or shifting toward outer side.

I think it is the spur gear. If you look the belt comes off the tensioner and kind of heads left (unless it is illusion) in that front1 picture. If you want to verify hold you car that direction. The distance between the side of my top plate and the metal piece on the left side of the spur gear is 15.67mm on my car.
