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

Default Setup book

Hello all,
I would appreciate if you clarified the following question.
In an old Serpent set up book and in an old Hudy setup book I read the following effects of the fron anti roll bar adjustment:
Effects of Front Anti-Roll Bar Adjustment

Stiffer
• Less chassis roll.
• Decreases front traction.
• Increases rear traction.
• Reduces off-power steering at corner entry (increases understeer).
• Quicker steering response.
Softer
• More chassis roll.
• Increases front traction.
• Decreases rear traction.
• Increases off-power steering (may cause oversteer).

While in the newer serpent 720'08 setup book and in the new XRAY NT1 setup book I read the following:

Effects of Front Anti-roll Bar Adjustment
Softer
• Increases chassis roll
• Increases front grip (decreases rear grip)
• Decreases off-power steering at corner
entry
• Slower steering response
Stiffer
• Decreases chassis roll
• Decreases front grip (increases rear grip)
• Increases off-power steering at corner entry
• Quicker steering response

It seems that there is a contrudiction regarding the "off power steering at corner entry". The old books say that the softer anti roll bar increases it, while the newer books say that the stiffer anti roll bar increases it.

What is the correct?
BTW, my personal experience is that the softer anti roll bar increases it.

Thanks in advance

Congrats Paolo on your recent win.

One question, can I follow your set up using a mazda body. my local track here in CA is low to medium, not as technical, and I ran the 720 08 version.
I havent tried disconnecting the front sway bars but certainly will.

Of course you can follow Paolo's set up, why not? now after copying it, then you will need to copy his driving skills too

Default 2 speed problem

Hi guys,
I have smal problem (big) , my gears don't less longer in my serpent 720 . I notice that the pinion and the gear (news) don't match properly (17/61 or 60) .
Do someone knows about this ? they less no longer than 5 minutes (I ensure that the gap is ok).
