I run a lock. It is the most consistent, however has the most push. You have to play with weight transfer a lot more with the lock front.

DJ over a year ago you gave me a set up for the 720 to try. Well I finally tried it and it works great. Don't know why I didn't try back then.

Now, only if I could drive \

Thanks

Having a lower value on the droop tools means more droop.

more droop, or upward travel on the chassis, increases weight transfer to the front of the car. Meaning, more steering under braking conditions or at any point where deceleration occurs.

3.5mm above ride height in the rear is what seems to work good for me. I've tried different and always go back to 3.5mm.
I always play with the front 1mm and 1.5mm above ride height. Depends if I need more weight transfered to the rear of the car on corner exit.

hi DJ...ive tried the setup u gave me on two tracks here and it works great thanks. The only thing Ive changed is running a spool and change using the brass plate instead of carbon on my LCG chassis. Ive since able to get rid of understeering issue and the setup really suit my driving style. Thanks man! Now to test it out under racing condition.. wish me luck.

What happens to the handling of the car if you change from the Brass chassis insert to the CF insert?

It should only change your center of gravity and front to rear weight distribution a bit.

Good to hear. I do not any inserts in the chassis. I like having the flex in that part of the car. It helps in high bite.
