I am looking to get better stearing in the infield seems to push when I get into a technical section......seems like I am a moving chicane

Anyone else got some similar info??


I run on a simular track, I am using cvr with a x12 pipe, works well for me.........I personally should have gotten the mt12 I could have used the extra legs
Is your track permanent ? do they change the configuration every other week, like they do mine keeps us honest
Hmmmm CVRs also seem good at my track. The new OS TR seems to work well also.

Our track is permanent so we only go forwards and backwards.

Here is my set up which works great at a medium track with tight infield

Front
Gold spring, 70wt
8' caster; 1.5 toe out; 2' camber
softest sway bar position
42 shore tire

Rear
Gold spring, 55wt
2' toe in, 3' camber
black sway bar

I am using front one way with rear solid axle.

setup also works great on rear diff but you need higher diff oil such as 10000 or above.


I will try your set up but I need to get to the hobby shop to pick up some diff and shock fluids, I will keep you informed of whats happening

Thanks

If I use this set up, will I be a member of team hardkore
Great, tell me how do you find the setup.

by the way, the rear camber link is : bulkhead/lower; hub/upper.

LOL we do not play by HK rules!!! The 30% certainly seems to add a lot of torque to the engines which makes them alot faster!

Actually our track is quite free, but all our championship events and state events are run to IFMAR rules. I am too lazy to change car setup between rule sets so I just run IFMAR rules on my cars most of the time......
