Raul, are you running the narrow hexes in the rear? If so, what did it do for the car? I'd figure that it'd steer better...

This is the first I've heard of narrower hexes. I bought the US spec car about a month ago, i'm curious what I got in my kit?

Big thanks to Rob Michaels and members of Team Corally for there support at the Nats. Setups to try, lots of parts, and advice that helped a bunch.

Big congrats to new team member Furman Walker who was ballistic in 19t and had just enough bad luck to ruin some great runs.

Excel,

I'll be there, and I'm good for 2 or 4 narrow hexes once you get them. :-)

Ok, so if the narrower ones are optional then I have the original wider ones with the kit. Thanks!

My car was still a little over with the narrow hubs and Parma Tires,
(190.10), but it fit in the tech box at the nats.

Default width

has anyone run jaco tires on the car.
i ran double pink/orange (front) and double pink (rears)
the jaco's were right on at 190mm in the rears
but 188~189mm in the front. all with the standard (wide) hexes.
is this what everyone else is coming up with as well.

i was thinking about adding one more set of shims at the front bulkhead to bring the front to 190mm or else creating toe in/or out from the bulkhead rather than from the turn buckles.

any comments?

yup, danny and his car were awesome all weekend. i thought i was in trouble when i couldn't run with him in pracitce. but later, i realized just how good danny was running. w/o qual points it would have been a-main for mr. hartman. perhaps he will be in a few weeks at The Gate, for our season finale.

bring it, danny!

Default narrow hexes

Brian, I have not tried the wide hexes, I am running a box stock kit... But yes , narrower would make it turn easier.

Does the kit come with the narrow or wide hex adapters? I would like to space the front tires out some more to be able to get the tires to turn further without rubbing the spring, but don't want to make it past the 190mm.
Kits are supposed to have standard hexes. Narrow hexes are an optional part. However, if you received one of the first 10 Carpet Spec kits they had narrow hexes on them. No kit from now on will have narrow hexes.

They are all black hexes. I have some silver standard ones but those are earlier versions.

No it does not equal 190mm out of the box. I added 3mm on each side at the Birds with JACO tires to get 190mm. It might have been wide, but I measured it like 5 times. I believe it is different for PARMA tires.

I left the shims on and put rubber tires on and it is dead on 190mm in the front. The car is more stable and does not roll over in corners with the wider stance. I noticed better overall steering along with another driver I told to do it.

The rear with 2 deg of rear toe (2 shims) is 190mm. Some guys add the narrow hexes and put 2mm shims on the arms to space them out. Hope this helps.

Jeff
