I have also just got the new suspension arms, having never run the BK/PK brackets can someone tell me without having to search through 300+ pages what difference these actually make and if I should really now be using the new mounting position. ( With the above racing details )

Any help gratefully received
Hi Andy
Im with you on this one to, got my car quite quick now but still seem to find it hard to plant the power down coming out of the corner

I will be trying the new wish bones this weekend, I think the idea of them is to stop the car learching from left to right out of the corners so you CAN plant the power down and to be able to go back to thinner oils and softer springs, but I guess some one will correct me on this one eh Brant
Cheers TCCFM

Hi Malc,

Well im going to try and set up a car with each, one car with the set up i've been practicing with (Standard arms ) and the other car with R/C anon's set up a few pages back with the new arms and see which I like best. Will be bit of a baptism by fire as not done much racing lately and will be the first meeting for me of the indoors series this year with slicks. Should be interesting LOL

Hi ran R/C anon's compleat setup last night at Maritime with sorex 28rs,
1st run good, but pushed a bit on power
2nd run, reduced the front anti-dive to 1 x .035 shim (probably gave me a bit more caster) 2 deg camber on the front, 1.5 on the rear, 4 droop on the rear,BRILIANT try it

Hi Andy
Thought ide not seen you around on the scens for a while
Your lucky to have 2 cars, as will need to change the arms in between heats to see how the car feels with them on. I know Keith (The Bald Eagle) Helmkee has the new arms fitted, but he has not run the car since he has added them. Should be interesting me thinks, well something like that
See you Saturday
Cheers Malc TCCFM

Andy - did a round of DMS last month, using the std arms, ran 30lb in the front 20lb rear, all shocks 1 from all the way in, HRC front and LRC rear, 1/2 deg rear hubs, Rayspeed Accord shell. Car was good enough to make the A, was down on speed and my driving let me down. Mark Fletcher ran a similar setup to me to make top5 in 19t (BTW I was doing stock).

Yea had a real good run on the last one, but where you look down to the bottom left of the track, if people start to walk around down ther you lose the corner, and that's what happened to me, I lost 6 seconds coz the cars went into the pits. The car was quick enough to get into 6th in the A, but because of that little detore, I went back into 3rd in the B, but won it by 6 seconds (strange that eh ) and never looked in my rear view once but never got a pot, coz they were stuck in the post near Hemel Hempsted

Looks like Gil Jr. should send Todd over to the UK to help our JRX-S brothers out with their setups...Com'on Gil...Todd needs a vacation.

Seriously...Email Todd the specifics of your track and setups. He is a master at resolving issues.

Cheers!

Chris,

I did have some initial luck using the "Numan" setup with the BK brackets on ozite. If the carpet temp is cold, use tire warmers too.

2 pages down... gees.. didnt anyone run this weekend?

Ran my car yesterday... took the lead of the CRL again.. (Mathmatically, i think)

Learning good stuff... Hopefully will run again this weekend.

Anyone else think this car is SUPER sensitive to camber changes?

i noticed that when the traction was low it was rather picky to changes and when the traction came up at our local track that a shorter camber link was more the way to go (in the rear) and it didnt seem to change the handling characteristics quite as drastically as when there was little traction
