Oh, I'm sorry.

Basicly, my setup is the "standard" given by TOP--> http://www.top-racing.jp/Eng+JP/Inde...td%20setup.pdf
Only a few variations:
OIL WEIGHT: 50wt/40wt (F/R)
Shocks with about 75% rebound.

Used tires: Nosram VTEC 30R (controlled tire). Tire tweak additive (Full F/R)
Surface: Asphalt, medium grip. Medium-long track layout with a low speed technical zone.

I tried with softer front spring, shorter front axle (wheelbase), lifting rear shocks & falling front shocks, shorter front width, 2000cst silicone in rear gear diff........
nothing was succesfully.

B.R
Mario.

I've never seen the Nosram VTEC 30R (controlled tire). What is it similar to? Does it have a low pro or high side wall? What is the rubber like? Spec jacos/solaris? Sorex?

after building my new ex, i noticed a slight pull to the right on heavy acceleration.now after 3 race days it is almost a full right turn on accel. My setup i am using is Mike Hanulecs low traction asphalt set up. I have checked all the cvd's, all the bearings have been removed ,checked ,cleaned and lubed.Cleaned the rear diff and installed fresh 2000 wt oil....what am i missing ?

Oh, sorry, I did a mistake , the tires are Nosram VTEC 30X (X, not R).
These are: http://www.nosram.com/en/products/vt...-4pcs/details/

In Spain we've using this tires for 2 years on Nationals & Regionals Championships.

I'm very keen to know what they did.

Well...i took out the front spool and removed the outdrives and carefully inspected the flange on both sides of the spool and saw no evidence that the spool is not working correctly.Also replaced the center pulley alloy instead of plastic...
think i will replace all the bearings tonite and see what happens...

Just installed the aluminum rear hubs and notice a considerable increase in slop both at the a arm and at the axle (bearings). Normal? Go back to plastic? Thanks

Hi!.

I'm trying to mount 46mm steel drive shafts in the rear end. Anybody knows what is the min. arm spacers needed for fit them?

I tried with RF=2.4mm and RR=4mm (makes 2 toe-in) and fits ok, but it seems a bit wider rear end.

Mario.
