Well, that anti-gravity stuff sure worked on the paint.

Hmmm . . . good question.
Since I agree with your thoughts the other day re: low CG's and roll centres etc., I would think maybe it's the softer springs you're now using . . . maybe?

How about this . . . . the harder springs you were using last year permitted less total roll and maintained a narrower window of roll (between shore ratings) so that tyre wear differences were less noticeable.

Of course, I could be under a similar delusion.

Ahhhh roger that. That does make a fair bit of sense.............

Guess I need to do some more work on the camber, pull out a few more degrees and see how they wear.

Tommy, I guess I'm stumped then.

How about this:

Pull out the lower pin till it's nearly out of the bulkhead, tighten the holder screw and see which way the pin moves. Loosen the screw a little and see if the knob will move it back to the correct alignment.
This might help determine if the hinge pin hole on the arm is out of whack.
My lower pins were only bent at the ends - I only guessed it was due to the method used to gring the flats. They would move smoothly in one orientation but when rotated, say 90, they would bind.

Maybe another way to do it is to remove the hinge pin, tighten up the adjusting screw and then see if you can install the pin.

Dunno if any of this helps.

I don't think is the arm because when I use the 3 racing blade holder, no more bent pin and I can do the normal adjustment so didn't border check the plastic holder again.

Geeez . . . under 1700g.

I was really wanting to minimise the hop-ups on this Evo . . . . particularly the porky alloy ones.
Now, ever since you bought those bleedin' scales I can feel myself getting sucked in to a diet program for this car.

Here's the question:
What do we all think is the best bang for the buck "improvements".
I only want stuff that is practical, not just pretty . . . . how I have the cheek to say that after also buying the conversion kit just for the chassis and top deck, I don't know, but hey 19grams is 19grams!

Here's my thinking:
Ti 2-speed shaft - half the weight and it's rotating mass to boot.
Ti mid shaft - ditto.
Ti pillow balls? - pretty pricey, but it is unsprung weight.
Ti hinge pins - not enough saving . . . only for the really desperate.
Ti screws - havent seen a kit of screw's yet - dunno the weight involved?
Alloy screws - I've got some of those and will probably use them in low stress places.
Lightweight 2nd gear holder - I'll drill the one we have.
Left side brace - though I can't really justify it.
Alloy hex's - have those, but don't like the weight.
Carbon brake brace - using the one from the R.
Lower engine mounts - got to figure how all this will work with the side belt proximity.

Any other ideas?

Ahhh, I forgot . . . easy access to 3Racing stuff.

You got a left side brace that's going to work?

Upgrades already ... I'll be grateful if mine hits the track one of these days !

Got it on the setup gear at the moment, my main concern is going to the next race meeting with a car that... well... isn't right .

I guess I'll have to have a run out the front of my joint tomorrow to run the engine in and check that everything's working ok... fingers crossed .

Also... what's your droop set at or what would be good for a large, fast track (Lilydale)?

I'm looking at the setup sheet included with the kit and it says 0mm for the front .

Certainly not! . . . . these are improvements.
It's a subtle difference, but it's there.
