Default help, need suspenstion setup advice for V1RR EVO

hey guys,

i just wrote of my RR and am currently ordering the Evo conversion kit. I was having trouble with the car setup (suspension, camber, toe etc) and was wondering if anyone out there that has a setup that will work well on a small tight track. the track only has 2 straits, one of which is about 50 meters or so...

i'm trying to get a really good setup so if sumone has a good setup, plz let me know. any advice is appreciated.


thnx

noobatron;

The Stock suspension set-up should be pretty decent for a small track. Though you might want to put a regular Diff back in the Front.

As pops has said the stock setup of the EVO is very good. The old RR setup was not so great, but if you build the EVO straight from the box it should work very nicely.

I run on a small and bumpy track with almost the stock setup and it works very nicely. Getting the body, tires and your driving correct is 95% of the setup.

Default thanx

I do,

The car's running is surfice but there is that edge that i want over the mugens. My driving skills, although arn't very flash are good enough for me to keep up with the touring class.

how would i be able to fit the normal diff back into the evo? isn't it too narrow?

thanx for the help =D

The EVO front diff requires some new parts, the part numbers are in the manual. If you have a stock front diff already all you need are the shorter shafts.

I run a oneway on even small tight tracks and I can drive it fine, only use the front diff if you find you need to brake really hard.

The EVO is easily as good as the Mugen in handling. There are a few little tweaks you can make to make the car handle nicely, but seriously winning requires you to drive well. Setup changes are only fine tuning.

noobatron,
the stock setup of the evo is about there, just follow it. however if you find the rear end tends to step out easily, you might want to reduce rear droop from the recommended +4 to +6/+7 to stabalise it, that's what i did to my converted v1rr.
