From my experience with Corally by the time you see advertising of the products its not normally very long after that they release the product, and they have already added pdf's of the products on the website. Maybe Jeff Brown or CorallyUSA can give more info.

Hey all,

This club racing set-up worked well last weekend. I am not saying its dialed or anything-but its worth a try for thse who like to experiment around. Of course its easy to drive and has plenty of steering. I would warn about using too much Dual Rate as it seems to scrub speed when wheels are turned too far in long corners-but is fast if you dont saw at wheel. Its felt great in full mod too.

Front
shocks 60 wt oil, stock piston, 32 lb Corally spring, third hole out on arm, 3rd hole in on shock tower-shock towe r lowered 3mm.

Camber link top row-into 2nd hole.

4 deg casterwith anti-dive. 1 in front and 2 in rear. Wheelbase short. Parma
Cyan tires 2.25" CA up the side walls.
1.9mm sway bar, 1mm lift (uptravel) for droop. 190mm width. 1/16" toe out.

Rear
Shocks 35 wt oil, 1.3 piston, LOsi black spring, 4th hole out on arm and 2nd hole in on tower.
Camber link into upper 2nd hole in on tower, high and short on hub. Prosquat-1 in frnt and 2 in rear. no sway bar. MId wheelbase.
Parma Magenta tires CA up side wall-but not to top of tire.
2mm uptravel for droop. 1mm shims for toe-in. Narrow hexes for 190mm width.

Ride height was 4.2 front to back and body was Parma Alfa. Front diff very tight-rear a bit loooser.

Please let me know if anyone tries it.
Ray,

On your setup you suggested having the front and rear (kick up and Anti Squat positions) where the front of the arms are lower than the rear...is this correct???? What does that do for you?

Thanks, Mike

PizzaDude,

Hmmm, my understanding is that when you have anti dive (front of the arms higher than the rear fo the arms) it will give you more aggressive steering when braking and especially while cornering. This is due to the decrease in caster when turning off-throttle. This was from the Xray booklet.

Not debating...just trying to understand it.

Front of the arms higher than the rear of the arms in the front end increases caster.

Front of the arms higher is kick-up increased caster less turn in more exit!

Anti-dive is the opposite of the above more turn in a little less exit..

This is what I found on this car, hope it helps!!

No offence taken.

I was addressing the difference of the front arms sitting lower as oppossed to the rear arms.
Then the difference (as opp. to the same mounting height) would be líl' more steering.

Actually....... i think the confusion stems from all these different names for tuning options.

I believe kickup in the front is called anti-dive as when you let off, the weight doesn't transfer as much. Which is also the same angle of the arms as "anti-squat" in the rear.

Tilting the front of the down lower than the back of the arm is called "Pro-Dive" for the front or "Pro-squat" for the rear.

Kickup doesn't just change the amount of caster, it also changes the way the car handles other ways. Kickup will make the car handle better in bumpy sections and settle down the steering. So 2 deg of kickup and 2 deg caster is not the same as 4 deg caster with 0 deg kickup.

Jeff
