Anyone tryed the new rubber belts?

I heard that they are good for qualifying but they don't last long.

Default Rear Lower Arm Setting

A lil' help would be greatly appreciated. What effect does changing the rear lower arm position have on handling? More understeering, oversteer, side traction, etc. 4.5, 5.5 6.5

Hi Lil Paul,

Here is basically when I would use the three different rear blocks.

Low Bite traction = 6.5
Medium traction = 5.5
High Bite traction = 4.5

Short Note : The droop setting would need to be re-set as you change from one block to the other since it either raises/lowers your hinge pin position (depending on the block you have on).

Hi ruicortez,

We've had a new set of rubber belts hold up through a couple of days of qualifying plus a 45 minute main with no problem. On top of which, they stayed on the car for future practice runs after that.

I'd say the New Mugen Rubber Belts hold up as long as the Mugen Standard Belts (under normal usage). The advantage you get from the new rubber belts would be a more free and smoother drive train.

Hi Corey, how are you?

Yes, they would be 35s.

I see you may have upgraded your car to the "R".?.
I hope all is well and will see you at the races....

I cut mine a little more closer to where the camber is. The more camber you run on the car, the less tire that will be in contact with the pavement if you cut NO camber into the tires. In the rear where you typically have around 3 degrees of camber, if you do not cut any camber into the tires, then only about 1/3 of the rear tire will be in contact with the ground.

In the rear I run about 3- 3.5 degrees of camber, so I cut the tires close to that- maybe a tad less. I run the fronts around 1-1.5 degrees of camber so I just cut them at 1 degree.
