Nice pictures.

Why did you raise the camber link?

educated guess: it will lower the roll centre of the car, in effect giving more rear traction?

Isn't it the other way around?

What about having less camber change for more traction in the corner?

Jenny, time to come out and say something.

well longer links/less angled links will give more roll, and less camber change.

I've also increased the camber links length. This gives less camber changes when the shocks are compressed. Raising the camber links alone won't give less camber changes. My camber links now sit almost horizontal when the rear tires are at neutral position (with batteries) with a ground clearance at 7mm.

If at neutral position the camber links incline (outside higher than inside), the camber changes will be more than if they were horizontal at the start. During the summer season the track is much grippier. We've used a grade thicker oil and slightly stiffer springs. There really isn't all that much shock travel and roll anyway. You don't need that extra increased camber when the shocks are compressed. You have to try it out. The stock setting could be right for you already.

It's for large outdoor track?

I thought the stock camber link was already too long. I actually moved to bottom hole in the front c hub which gave better overall result indoor small technical track.

Upper hole was way lazy to drive.

Has any of you tried shorten the camber link and/or more ackerman (making and moving to inner hole on front knucks)?

Maybe I'm used to TC3's sharp steering too much.

Mine took only 3 days to So Cal from HK.
I was quite surprised, 'cuz I expected at least a week or so.

Post your pictures when you get that.
