Can some one tell me what weight oil comes in the shocks in the UK kit? Also what is the final drive ratio on this car, wanting to get the same roll out as I was using on my other car.

Thanks

Default RDX

Good run Teacher at Debbies last week. Your RDX looked real good. I liked the way it transfered weight left to right. See you and the rest of the guys soon. Tell Arvin when you see him I said hi.

Default Roll center blocks

At what time would you want to run the low roll center blocks (Part # 79121) either front or rear?

What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Thanks, Mike

Good question, I tried them last week with med. bite and the car was OK not great! I went back to a higher roll center and the car was night and day better!

I noticed that Dobbs ran less caster than I did with a slammed RC set up..Is that the trick? 2* caster with lower RC's short camber links...It's hard to take a set up from a car that was being ran on "tar" paper ozite though (lots O bite)...

Default roll center

i run the low roll all around and like it better. I also dont run any bars to let the car roll around more. I also run the front link short and in the lower hole.

I'v notice on a couple of the Setups on the Corally site and some of the setups from the guys at the Snowbirds that they were NOT running a front sway bar. I find this interesting.

I ran my RDX for the first time today with basically the kit setup and the 1.3 pistons and 60 wt in the front and 40 wt in the rear and had a very bad push going into the turns, but it felt very sweet on the sweepers. Maybe I will take off the front sway bar and see what happens.

Any thoughts???

I am using stock pistons with 60 wt oil in the front and 40 wt in the back i didnt like how the hpi 1.3 pistons fit. I also think that a 39 pd spring is way to stiff. i use 28 pd xray spring in the front and a 22 pd asc spring in the rear. i think a stiff spring reacts slower in the chicane

I am running the 39 spring in the front and the 26 in the rear (which maybe part of the problem).

My castor is 4 and the rear camber link is in the 3rd hole on the bottom of the rear shock tower and kit setting on the rear hub (inner bottom row).

Front shocks 2nd hole in from the end as well as the rear shocks on the shock towers.

BTW, plaids and purples.

Mike

first thing is i gained 4 tenths per lap at the birds by switching to cyan, magenta and raise the rear camber link on the shock tower and move it in one hole and try 1 down on the hub. this car loves the softer tires. i worked hard a finding a set up with the purple and plaid and no matter what i tried it still had a small push

by the way i run parma tires, someone said there differnt offset then jaco weither of not that is true i dont know i havent checked into it yet.
