i had a discussion on monday on whether the rear sway bar gets stiffer or softer when you move the position on the lower arm to the inner hole.

while i expected this to reduce the rear sway stiffness (due the increased mechanical advantage the rear arm has on the sway bar, instead i found that i had good steering and maybe more roll stiffness.

Jesse Beltran suggested that moving to inner location should get stiffer due to the more upright orientation of the linkage. i disagreed and was convinced that the mechanical advantage of the arm was more important than linkage angle.

well i was curious so i tried to measure the effective roll stiffness by comparing the ride height with one shock removed with the linkage at each lower position.

i was surprised to find that moving the link from the inner to outer position resulted in a reduced ride height, suggesting that the outer position indeed has a lower roll stiffness (for the stock sway bar linkage)

it's a good thing i didn't bet Jesse any $$.

The pic of the half covered V10 on the web site today showed some neat features....

Looks like an easy way to change the front diff out and the front belt too looks like you can change it very quick with just removing the steering tie-rod. Pipe hanger comes up from below and upper arms appear to have roll center changes that will be one piece instead of inserts.

The idea behind the V10 is that the car is based off the Velox itself. Adjustable roll centers with set screws is only one of the features as well as some other features other then the braking system.

The car looked ok...You did a good job of building it. We just needed to make a couple small changes.

Using the Velox , I won Mugen Open Cup in Shanghai today.

Fukuda TQ but it was wet track in the final so he decided not to start the race.

My friend Chris Liu and Fukuda's mechanic( Yuruki San) help me on the pit so I have to win....

MY car had the most traction in the slippery condition, in fact was just little understeer. I used the white Spring for the first time and it was good.
And used the Long chassis setup.
