Hmm... little traction?

Traction wasnt crazy or anything, but there was a defined line.. any way... i dropped from 1.75 degree rear to 1.25 and from 1 to 1.25 in the front and the car litterally went from lazy, and way too stuck, to screwing itself into the ground...

Keith--Are you sure it wasn't part of the car and maybe part of the track gaining traction that made it feel so drastic? I dunno about carpet but for me on asphalt the camber changes like what you described were not very obvious.

This is what kills me.

The track did not change much.. if any from round 3 to the main.

I have had this experience before. At novak, my car was doing the same thing.... Hodge said to take camber away from the front, and run 1F- 2R, instantly driveable..but slow and lazy...LOL..

LAST weekend, I let Dave Johnson drive it at CEFX, he asked what camber.. and he said to take some out of the rear (runnign 1F 2R) and it did the same thing... Unreal.

I will play with this more, hopefully this weekend.

Keith

Losi to the rescue. Todd just sent me some parts to try on my front motor car.

Should have the car back on the track (Stockton) with foams this weekend.

Otherwise, will be using the Chicky setup.

Ummm...Call me JRX-S "B" Bill...For now.
