EricF,

This is the set-up that Chicky has Buddy and I running and its fast in stock and 19t and even modified with small chnages.

I have been running the 25lb rear spring leaned in one more hole. In modified I run the front shocks leaned in one more hole and make my turning circle about 10 clicks smaller on my Helios and run 2-deg toe in per wheel.

Its easy to drive in 19t and mod. IN stock-its got a lot of steering for me-but its been proven over and over that its fast.

Just pay attention to details. Keep the droop and ride height the same every run.
Ray

If you're running in a low bite situation try softer front springs and or lowering the front roll center. It will give you more front end bite. If your track is a Paragon track the set up should be close. If it's not you might have to make some small changes for more steering.

Yes you are correct. With that pivot and those hubs you would have 1/2 degree of toe-out in the rear.

With 28mm tires the brackets will not work on the front of the car. However they will work on the rear. I am not sure if they will work with 26mm wheels...most likely not in the front.

Since the shock is moved further out on the arm this allows the shock to control the arm movement of the car a lot better and since are a-arms are so short and we have a lot more arm movement compared to other TC's the brackets help with that as well.

Toe out on the rear, what does this do for handling? I always thought that was a no-no, that's why I was surprised to see this.

BK Brackets...
Are you guys using these on carpet as well? I thought they were mainly an asphalt necessity.

Ray, JB, Paul, Thanks for the set up info.

I messed up it should be a +1 degree pivot block. So with +1 deg block and 1/2 hubs you'll have 1.5 deg of toe in per side. We have since switched to 2 and 0 hubs or 1 hubs and 1 block to get 2 deg of toe in.

I have some but have not tried it yet. Like Todd said you can only use it inthe rear for foams.

Ok, time for a new car before the fall season starts.... I'm racing carpet, very tight track, the last layout the lap times were high 7's to low 8's.... What kind of luck is everyone having with the car? Like usual I'll probably be the only one running it since everyone else has Xray's and TC4's...

It would have no rear grip.
