Hi

i have been looking at some of the setups on the xray forum and i have seen that some of the pro drivers are moving there camber links on the front shock tower to the outer most holes and i was just wodering how they achieve this as when the camber links are monted in the standard position the thread is nearly all in i just wondered if anyone new of a way around this or do i need to order some shorter turnbukles ???? Also could somone please explain to me what effects it has on the car when you run the camber links shorter and longer ????

Help would be much apreciated
Benro

Benro from what ive read and seen the shorter the upper control arm the faster the suspension arm will move up and down

so if it moves faster then the suspension would be more agressive more responsive making it more predictable however it would also make it harder to drive as your reaction times would also need to be faster

I would imagine shorter control arms would be better on smooth tracks and for bumpy tracks you would extend the arm

anyone is this right

with alloy hubs and titanium screws my FK04 is about 140 grams under weight on foams

I was starting to think I should just get a hardened screw set just to add some weight

I also used Yokomo screws. They are black which look great on the carbon fiber chassis. I got 24 ( 3 packages) of 3mm x 6mm.
