So why not put 20k in both?

Well both of those are thicker than 20k

Other brands of lube aren't exactly weighted. Sometimes you just need to use your imagination

Just to add to the comments. different weights in the opposing tubes still creates balanced damping on both sides at the same time as the effect is cumulative. The ideal would be for the lube makers to make the stuff in 2k increments. The effective weight of the odd tubes is 22.5, but again, that's just the mathematical equivalent. You have to take into account the air temp, motor temp (as the tubes become warm from motor heat during a run) and even humidity on any given day. Getting the dampers right for one particular day is key. Copying damper lube setup is in my opinion a big no no. It may get you around the track, but it does require tuning. And now you know why your car gets weird when your motor is up to temp and it's not the rear tires.

How does one shock work as opposed to two tubes??
Brand x has a single hevho shock n it would seem more simple to set up.

Interesting conversation and one that makes you think. I actually had to draw it out on a piece of paper to understand.
Remember that the design of the dampers and their location results in one damper expanding and the other one contracting when the chassis rolls. Sooo...Assuming the dampers offer the same amount of friction in each direction the effect would be exactly what liljohn said. It seems strange but you have to remember that BOTH dampers are reacting in BOTH directions every time. Never thought about this....thanks fellas.

I'm wondering why he had 15k in 1 tube n 30k in the other tube.

Looks nice. Needs the 17 front wing, but the regular Montech looks fine too. The F6 is my current racer. They are very similar.

Looks great, John! Mine came in Friday, but I had it delivered to work so I will pick it up tomorrow.

Now throw a McLaren body on the car and we can be teammates. The secret to having a fast car is painting a McLaren livery on it

The aluminum rear pod was thinner than the graphite so the axle was lower to the ground. Don't remember the difference it gained. Just remember it got me to 5.0 ride height as I was running outdoor.

Hiya Panda,

Does this mean that the alu rear pod bottom plate from the 2016 f1 car fits the evo as well?

The store I frequent has it but I dont want to plonk down moola unless it fits and works.

I ask cos the carbon bottom plate part numbers for f1 2016 is: 220042, and the one for f1 evo is: 220110

Thanks for any confirmation... cheerio!

Evo carbon chassis is 2.5mm. Alu rear pod for F1 2016 is 2mm, so it's not a good idea...

New alu chassis/rear pod will be 2.5mm

I can do McLaren. Rumor has it they will be doing a throwback paint scheme for next year though, papaya orange. I have a JConcepts J21 mostly fit to try. The Montech 17 front wing needs assembling. I'm waiting on an Associated front wing plate so I have the static front body post mount to do the front post hole. I was hoping Roche made the front wing plate. I started the build during F1 prerace and finished before the final lap. Very nice build. I'll be putting in the Renault...

Rapide F1 Aluminium Front Body Post Mount Set, Black

comes in red or black

I run the AE front wing so I use the AE alum part, I like how it fits down inside the wing!

Oops. I think if I had known, I'd still have ordered the AE part.
