Default Settings

I've always used caster to fine tune the cars turning in, both initally and midway in the corner. But we all have to remember, what works for you might not work for me. I tested a good bit at the Nats in Vegas and the best settings for me, (not to confuse you) were 2mm upper and lower rear, front was 1mm upper, and none on the lower. Worked awesome, but also had 7 deg caster and 2 deg. tow out each side in the front. You'll just have to make ONE change at a time and keep records of the changes, weather they are better, worse, or werther you can tell a difference or not. Then realize if you change something else like sway bar, tire durometer, you may end up going back to a setting thet you didn't favor before. not to confuse, you just need track time with the car. just use our suggestions as guidelines. Have fun!!

Have not messed with anti-squat and anti-dive. I don't think we'll find much success with anti-dive as it also does weird stuff to caster. I would like to try anti-squat in the rear, but only after nailing down some good (better)baseline setups.

Merry Christmas to all, and yes, let's kick some butt next year.

Carb inserts- I normally use an 8mm insert. If I still can't make run time, in goes the 9mm since I'll have to splash regardless.

No problem guys I'll take one for the team and pull out the Winternats win for Moto.

Merry Christmas to all.

Thanks for the latest part Brad. The minute I saw the X and Y braces bolted to the carbon cross-brace I knew that needed to be a 1-piece part.

Let me know when all the goodies are ready so I can place one order!

Default BRASS Front Body Post

Latest Moto part. Brass front body posts. These weigh 16 to 17 grams per pair. Great way to move the cg forward on your Moto.

Once again sorry for the bad pics, but I just like to post pics as soon as I can.

At least you cleaned off the front of the body before you took the photos.

Default Brass weight for bottom of front body mount.

This weight weighs 11 grams and should complete the Motonica Brass collection for winter. You must tap the body mount for 4 mm screw.
