Default High Grip Setup for an MBX8

Hard to find one. Looked on Pettit and Mugens site. High bite, black grooved track. Small and bumpy

Thanks

[QUOTE = C_Heath; 15512807] Difficile trovarne uno. Guardato sul sito di Pettit e Mugens. Binario nero con scanalature alte. Piccolo e accidentato

Grazie [/ PREVENTIVO]
se hai più grip puoi usare
10/10/5
la punta posteriore 2.50 o 2.75
Posteriore 2.9

shock 550 anteriore e
550/500 molla posteriore 9.0 /10.50
you can use rear link camber in the middle 15.6 mm
and use hole in the top shock tower.
inizialmente provare con oli e convergenza posteriore

10-10-5 in the diffs. Or even as high as 15 in the front diff if your car is still too twichy.
2.4 front bar and 2.6-2.8 rear bar.
9.0f 10.5r springs
And the ackerman 1 or 2 positions backwards from the middle position
Longest rear link, middle hole on tower.
And you can leave the rest pretty much in the default postions.

The diffs, ackerman and swaybars should bring the biggest change.

Oh, and a bit of anti dive can help as well. (opposite of kickup)
This is achieved by using the lower hole in the A block and middle hole in the B block.

This will slow down the weighttransfer to the front and make the car calmer on turn in.
