i have tried using the chassis brass, it help on traction roll but rob abit of steering...
how do u mount the front weight?? double side tape?? any pic on the added weight would be nice... thanks in advance

cheers,

I will answer for them. Yes it makes a difference. When you use the chassis plate, you are not only adding the weigth, but also modyfing the fexion of the chassis in that area. I always run with the plate now (any condition) i just play with thge setup to get the steering. Try the setup i posted. I run the car like this always. I just change camber, caster and toe depending on track. Is a really god balance and starting point.

Front weigths are normally mounted inside the foam bumper. DJ is really good at this process. He makes the hole in the foam and then place the led inside with glue.

Hi Paolo!

Why do you have a big difference between front and rear ? I put always 5mm in front and 5.5mm rear

Thanks Paolo,
i'll definetely try your setup on next race or practice
FYI i'm using the option LCG chassis with the chassis plate, not updated to 08 chassis yet.
our local track here mostly the traction low and do not have additive to the track. so i think the LCG chassis with weight will suit me more or do u recomend the new 08 chassis which is stiffer??
thanks again...

CK, looks like you getting ready for FEMCA already

For low traction, dont switch to 08 chassis. Keep the LCG.

I like to have my car to pivot on the nnose a lot (this is a must when you run solid axle in the front) so i like my car to trsnafer a lot of weigth in the front wheels off throttle

We all drive the LCG chassis. The 08 is the std chassis with the option to install or remove the front brass plate.
On high grip conditions, flat track, 08 chassis works really good. I will reccomend in your driving conditions to use the LCG

Thanks for the details. You must have really good steering off throttle with this setting and the no fron roll bar..
I will try your setting this week( if not Hurricane!).
Im still running the 06 car with LCG, will switch to 08 once I get the time to switch over the electronics.

Thanks for you answer Paolo!

And what do you change on your setup when the track is wet ?
