Bob gives some very good advices and guidelines but in the end comes to what you feel at the track thats why i did this way. But as a good and detailed explanation of what any change affects the car handling theorically speaking there isn't better thing than rccriewchief software.
I agree Jorge - its more about the changes and what they do. For eg , with 1mm under the blocks I feel there is just not enough grip . With 0mm its too much roll so 0.5 is maybe on the money.

I will soon flip the micro castors and try the shim between the cone washer to see the effects.

PS - I am using XRAY black bladders and find the sweating is much much less even after many runs.

Default D10 Set up

A setup from Bruno gives -5.81 front and -4.18 rear with 45.48% F/R Roll and 1.01 CRS. So i worked on something around this numbers, but i did some "changes" to standard manual car, like 0.5 shims between front hub and conical shim, steering carbon arms under the front hubs, rear hex wheel plus 1.5mm spacers and 1mm shims below the top deck.
You can pm your email and i will also send you my files.
So feed back , I upped the roll couple to around 48% by adding 0.5mm inboard on the links and then swoped out the 450 oil to 400 . Droop was around 2.2 ORH front ans 2.6 ORH rear.
The went for 0.5mm under the blocks and a medium wheelbase. I made the rear end wider , +3/+3 and WOW - worked really well. Even with my R1 V16 the rear end was solid (4K diff)

For a change I changed the front spool position , high instead of low. I think it made a difference.
Has any one played around with the shock bladders ? Blue / Clear / Black ?

I will post a set up sheet soon

Interesting points in your setup... Why did you add 1mm under the upper-deck? You wanted the car to roll more?

Anyone know the belt sized by chance? I'd like to get some low friction belts for my rides. Same as Xray and other popular TC's I'm guessing?
