I'd had that problem with my TC3 out at Camarillo (medium bite) and, after talking with Hubbard, who's care was hooked up, he told me that the reason for that problem was that the car was moving too much weight rearward too quickly. . .

(mid corner, off-brake and on-throttle - oversteer)

To fix that he upped the oil-weight all the way around - the oil only changes the RATE of weight transfer, not the amount. That fixed his problem.

Unfortunately for me, I didn't ask until way too late in the game. . .
That sounds like a perfect answer for the question that I was going to post (after reading all of the posts, most of them for the second time. Yeah, it took a while.) When I would get hard on power to the corner leading to the straight, I just couldn't quite keep a tight enough line unless I just setup perfect. If I setup perfect, my corner speed was down, so with this tip, I should have it.

Is there any effect from ackerman on cornering speed?? Like tire scrubbing... since the inner wheel is a slight diffrent direction from the outer wheel...

Also.. what is the effect of more or less ackerman length on steering angle.... will it makes our car turn in a tight radius or corner???

cheers to everybody!!!

I've yet to do some Ackerman experiment, so I've no experience.

But here you can read about the effect: Ackerman link 1 Goto "Alignment", chapter 3.4.

Here's another explanation: Ackerman link 2

Default great thread

What a great thread.
I wish there were more like it. People seem so focused on getting that last .01% out of their batteries or motor, when driving seems to be such a bigger a factor.

I watched the drivers run at the Nationals, 2 weeks ago; I concentraited on the hairpin turn, after the short straightaway. (Appearences may be deceiving) but it seemed like they were approaching the corner very fast, then somehow got an amazing amount of braking, went around the apex very close to the rail at a rather slow speed and then were able to accelerate dramatically. Almost as if the the only time they were not going at full speed was the 12 inches before the apex and the 12 inches after the apex. My impression was that on the two real hairpins it wasn't so much carrying corner speed but the ability to brake and accelerate, but thats just a subjective judgement, speed of an object which is changing direction is real tough to estimate.
