Here's a pic of the track:



For the big straight I've so far set the car to:

1.5 degrees toe-in front
2 degrees toe-in rear

-2 degrees camber all round

10 degrees caster

Thats my basic set-up, any ideas on whether a rear stabiliser is needed, and as for shock oil, 80wt sound about right? I would go with 70wt but I dont have any as of yet, I only have Integy 50, 60 and 80 wt......

Thanks.

This is a nice looking track with mostly high speed turns. My first question is why are you running that much toe in in the front? Try to run w 0 deg to 1.5 toe out. and work out any oversteering issues via some other means. If bite is as high as you say it is... Then I would run the hardest compound you can get away with. The reasons are two fold...tire wear is the obvious one especially since you alluded to the abrasive surface, 2nd...too much traction either by means of surface grip of too soft of tires will scrubb speed in the corners. If the surface is as smooth as it appears, I would run a relatively firm setup with little droop. This will allow you haul ass thru that left handed sweeper and transition thru the chicane quickly with very little roll, you'll have to set up your lines thru the "S" section. Roll off the throttle so that you turn in tightly to where you'll clip the board unless you get back on the gas and drift right thru.... now release the throttle and turn hard right simaultaneouly....brake if you must....but ideally...your car should pivot and allow you to get back on the gas and take the straightest line towards the sweeper. Don't get too hot on the gas or you go too wide... roll off the gas as you begin to turn, this will settle back into first gear. Now roll back on the gas so that you hug the apex.( Both of those cars in your pic are to wide) As you exit, you should be at full throttle feeling the surge in speed as you kick back into second gear....this is where you continue mash it like you're home free bro!! But you're not cause you get to do it all over again. Whewwww!!! That was fun!!! My palms almost got sweaty!!!

So to cap it off...firm setup w/ little droop and hardest compound you can get away with (i.e. go to 42's frt and rear if your'e traction rolling w 40's while running a reasonable Ride Height. And use the lowest roll center pos for rear camber link. Finally...I would also run and little less in rear toe in to gain cornering speed. and a little more rear camber for stability. Have fun!!

Thumbs up

Is it a low or top end pipe, a top end pipe would be better for the V1RR since it makes the best power in the upper rpm range which is ideal for nitro touring.

I assume you are talking about the flat and wide bumper for the lola body. It fits fine. All v1rr pieces fit the v1r.

As for the pipe need more info. What pipe model and what engine.

it's a Rex pipe kind of looks like a novarassi black pipe, and the engine is a os engine.

There are a few nova black pipes, a;; with different characteristics.... and there are many os engines, al with their own specs ie rpm, hp, rear exaust.

You need to give more detail in your questions in order to get a resonable reply

OK well most OS engines are torque based for a start, and a .15 engine also has a heap of torque. Since the engine is torque biased then you generally would like to use a pipe to enhance the RPM of the motor.

The 51603 is the perfect pipe for this motor as it will enhance the engines top end. However remember this pipe is made for a .12 engine. A .15 will produce more exhaust so if you can get away with it get the biggest stinger that you can.
