Just wanted to get back to this for a sec. If you remember I was having problems with a left rear wheel coning really badly.


I tried acouple of different compounds, and found I really like the 35F, 40R combination. Works well, lots of steering and the car rotates well. But I was still getting some coneing.

I moved the upper link (inner location) down a hole to increase the angle on the link, and the problem has virtually gone away now. I even ran 35F/35R for the main, and one of the qualifiers (25 Minutes on the tires), and both the left and right have side have remained fairly flat, and approx the same size.

Problem Solved! thanks for the help, and the suggestions.

Cheers,
Shawn.

Hey people, I am wondering how one goes about changing and measuring roll center on the 733. Thanks.

in the front there are black cams that go into the bearing bracket upper holder, and on the rear black cams that go into the alum. rearplates. the cams have 1 hole in center for medium rollcenter and 1 has offset to run high or low or rollcenter

Thank you sir. Raced it yesterday and it seemed like my roll center all around is too high.
