See a corner....give it more throttle...be brave...and be prepared to trash a couple of shells before you get the hang of it!!

Ultimate Hobbies in Orange carries some V-One parts. Mostly just your basics though like knuckles and arms etc.

Default Traction rolling

Guys;

I'm having problems with traction rolling.

The track is large sweeping and sprayed with VHT occasionally so bite is VERY high.

Using the Gold springs, 80wt oil, Heavy Rear sway, Front bar at 45, 4.5mm ride height and 45/42 Tires. The Car handles very good and is fast until the tires warm up, then it T/R's.

What changes whould someone recommend to combat the traction roll?

Thank you,

I cannot claim credit for this!! Somebody in France made it. He measured it up using a plastic plate first, then cut it into a 1.8mm graphite plate.

Thank you,
The three best things you can do to avoid traction rolls in my experiences:

1. Not easy but make sure everything on the car is low as possible. Obviously you are limited by car design here.
2. As stated above small tires. On a high grip course you need to be under 59mm in my experience. Also it is VERY important that you round the edges of the tire off the truer. If they are square they will "catch" as you corner.
3. Minimise droop as much as possible. The beauty of reduced droop is that as you roll into the corner it will lower the CG of the car.

Another interesting thing is that a too hard setup can actually make the car traction roll. If the suspension is so stiff that the car will not roll at all and your tires are too grippy you can go over. Your setup does not look this stiff however.

Decrease your rear toe and stiffen your front bar to the vertical position. The best thing to do here is adjust your droop first. What are your camber settings?

Sounds like Revelation Raceway. The best body to use with this car is the orginal Stratus. You definitely don't want to run the Alfa Romeo if that is what you are using. If you need more steering the go to the 2.1 or even more steering, the RDLogic Stratus.
