Yep, but the point is you "optimised" your equipment for "free" while the other guy may think he needed a better motor to keep up with you and shelled out another $500. Optimising a "modified" engine requires even more skill than a standard engine.

No problem. Our set-up is as per the kit with the these changes copy/pasted from the previous page . . . . . you really must keep up.

Due to the conditions, everyone was chasing set-up most of the day. We ended up with 45 on the front bar, softest setting on the stock rear bar (should have bent up a lighter one), 2 more caster, 5.5mm/6.0mm ride height, 35/35 tyres, 4mm/4mm droop, Silver springs on the front, Black on the rear.

I think we could have used some lighter shock oil too


The oils used were 60/50 - it might have been better with 50/50 or so.

Remember though that these changes were to accomodate the very dusty conditions we were both complaining about last week. If conditions return to normal next week for instance, it's likely this set-up won't be much good.
The changed conditions may be the reason your car isn't working as well as before.

Post your set-up together with the problem e.g. On power understeer.
The experts will be able to pick out any glaring problems and give you some things to try.

Not sure if you have been to Dandy during the week lately Gav but the last half dozen times I have been there, not on race days ,the track is real crap, almost to the point of being not worth running on.

The first few runs last race day was like what I've experienced during the week.

Noob, I'd suggest running the next race day (late Jan/Early Feb though) . You will find it more enjoyable as you'll get a better feel for setup and changes, learn from other guys and hopefully have some fun.

you need the hump pack here


you can use AAA size but you need to custom made for it.

you need a split of 2mm for 27T side pulley and 4mm for 25T OD pulley.

some kawahara stuff for EVO has been released. and the kfactory ultra low friction side belt works very well to remove belt and pulley friction.

Went to kfactory website but can't find the side belt as you indicated. Any advise?

BTW, the rear adjustable anti-roll bar from
kfactory, can it be fitted on the evo?

the belt is not on kfactory website. too bad.

the kfactory rear sway bar is not user friendly at all. the charge one or kawahara one are very good designwise.

Hi DC

I totally agree, I am a regular at the track during the week and since the off road race 2 weeks ago I have not experienced such poor grip at the track,. in the 6 months I have been in the hobby. Before then that track had not been too bad for grip during the week, on most occasions it was better than it was last sunday. When we get some rain I think the track will improve
but until then you will be wasting you time trying to setup your car.

TR.. I read in this forum earlier that the offroaders will not be parking on the track for future meetings, that is great news

PS Hi Dexter where were you on Sunday? Didn't see you there

No, haven't been during the week.
Hmmm . . . come to think of it, we've only ever practiced at Dandy, once.

Hi Anthony,

Well, what I said was:
The off road guys will be asked not to use the on-road track for their parking lot/pit area in future.

Also, you may not be aware that the off-road guys have been running two meetings each month lately instead of just one, so that may explain the increased dust problem. I'll raise the issue again at the next meeting.

If you say "you will be wasting you time trying to setup your car" I reckon you may be missing the point a bit. While I didn't like the low grip either, the challenge is to make changes to compensate - you can bet everyone else will.

Remember, I'm not the driver, and this is the fun bit for me. I need to extract the problem from my driver, and take measures to fix it.
Even on a normal day, we make at least minor adjustments.
This is why I get annoyed with myself when I use an old servo horn that fails. My driver gets annoyed when he drives badly.
Anyway, this is just fun . . . . DEADLY BLOODY SERIOUS FUN.

Oh, and Dexter . . . . well, we know he's a wimp, don't we.
I think he's trying to tell us he doesn't want the CD job anymore.
