Default Roll out

So Guys I got a question about roll out. so If we use the calculator from gearchart.com we come up with around 26.69 to 27.07 I am assuming mm?

Then I see all the input from guys taling about roll ou like 1.17 to 1. whatever....

is this a metric to imperial conversion???? so 25.4mm equals 1.00"

Dayger talked about 1.17 roll out in 19T TC at thre IIC just trying to figure out the conversion. 1.17x25.4= 29.71mm

Thanks

yes you are correct. 25.4mm is equvilent to 1". most american racers use "standard" when xpressing rollout.

thanks!
As previously said, the joint balls are mounted to the shock towers via button head screws (into the threaded bodies of these balls). They replace the standard joint balls (unthreaded) at the top of the shocks that you normally fasten with a screw and nut.

With this mod, you just pop the tops of the shocks on and off of the new joint balls; instead of, having to unscrew them. Works great.

Ahh, I miss Korey, he was always quick to answer questions.

I did the threaded ball mod tonight, and it does indeed work great. It looks nice, too. The prototype car has this mod from what I've seen, so I'm guessing we'll see it standard on the PHI.

I'm getting a lot of complements about my car, and how it looks on the track. I've been using a setup for a while that's very similar to the one Cuffs posted a few days ago, and the car drives like a dream.

After being the only RDX driver at our track for nearly two years, we've got 6 guys wheeling them now. People have been switching from their T2's and FK05's, and picking up used carpet spec cars. Now that the breakage issues are solved, I haven't heard anything but praise. It's nice to have some company, though I miss being the only Corally snob in town. :-)

Zing! It's possible I might have deserved that.

Jeff said he's working on getting some new setups on the site, so hopefully we'll see them soon.

What springs are you running in the rear? A lot of the setups on the site now have really soft springs, like 17lbs. I've gone all the way up to 24, and it's freed up the rear of the car tremendously. I noticed in Jeff Cuffs' latest setup, he's using 24's too, so maybe there's something to it.
