Earlier there were some posts regarding castor and camber change thru wheel movement/steering. Thought i'd chime in and drop the term SAI, or steering axis inclination. This is how castor works for both stability and feel, since it causes the tires to try and remain pointed straight ahead(more castor, more tendency to stay straight). For steering feel, it effects how much of the tire contacts the surface during turns/chassis roll thru SAI. There is also the weight jacking that occurs because of the axles change in inclination, etc.

The reason castor tuning seems elusive to some, is that it is directly effected by chassis roll stiffness. In other words, less roll in the chassis will like less castor, more roll will like more castor. This is because of tuning and not the surface itself, since tuning can reduce or add roll on any surface if desired......., Hope this helps?.....Jim

Very nice!!!!

What are the grub screws on the sway-bar mounts there for. In the manual they are reffered to as "Uptravel Adjuster B" or something like that.

Someone really should pay more attention to matters like these

LIke you said, they are up travel limiters. These adjust how far the arms move up, unlike the droop screw adjust how far they can move down. They are used to help control chassis roll in the corners.

Yet the setup sheets (at least the carpet setups) don't mention the setings at all. I've been playing with them on carpet and they seem to be a pretty cool tuning option.

Default Oneway setups???

Hi Todd,

I am chasing a setup to use with a oneway diff and centre pulley. I have tried your setup (spool)on both asphalt and concrete (with Sorex 36/40 rubbers) and its just dialled!!!!

I was wondering if any there are any setups for the car with a oneway using rubbers on asphalt or concrete? Or if you can give me any hints on what to change from your setup with the bk brackets?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Default Carpet Setup Question

On chicky's setup he says he has a -1 rear pivot. How is this obtained? He still shows 1.5 toe-in.

Thaks,

Well, my car was awesome using Josh Numans set up(or the version posted on the TL site anyhow). My car picked up alot of steering, but wasn't loose to get it, which is the way it should be! Corner speed was WAY up from the base set up with some tweaks I had been running. Even though I missed the A by .4 seconds, I have to take responsibility for the two bobbles early that cost me just over 4 seconds(TQ was about 5 seconds ahead of my final time), plus the time I wasted being nice to a driver with an overheated motor towards the end for almost 3 laps..........

It's nice to know my car is capable if I use it to it's potential!....next race is at Superior Hobbies(Corally home court). I'll run mod rather then expert 19T, HP won't be an issue with an Orion 7 turn, LOL!...............Jim

Todd,
I've enjoyed your setup as well, but I'm interested in trying the 1-way diff, or 1-way pulley or both. The overall track layout that I race at is long and narrow in depth. I've attached a jpg for you as I thought this might help in producing a setup.

Regards,
Peter

I'm puzzled because they don't seem to hit against anything like the droop screws do...
