Default problems solved

sorry guys i guess i should have continbued building the kit before posting those questions. as a test i put the front wheels on checked the track width (252mm) and then noticed thesway bar now sits flat at 5mm ride height and the suspension travel has been solved by unscrewing the pivot balls a little

ill check the setup when the car is complete

thanks anyways guys

Default body position with new protoform lola..

When setting up the new protoform lola..
how do you position the body posts ?

i tried to compare it to the pictures on the mugen site. Currently I have the front body posts positioned forward and the rear body posts are positioned forward (seams like they are in the middle of the rear shock tower)

i guess this is the default ? Thanks !

what would positioning the body backward do ?
do you cut the body on the lines for it to be a perfect fit ?

Moving the body back would give slightly more downforce.

mrgsr,
I know a couple of OS sponsored drivers and they all say to run an OS pipe combo w/ the OS engine(especially .21). They say powerband matches engine. Some use Skline for .12 w/ good results. Something to think about.

Understandable. If you are willing to try another brand you might consider THS pipes for about half the cost.

The body produces the same downforce no matter where it is positioned

The positioning just determines WHERE it is distributed. If you need more steering- move it forward. If you need less steering (more rear bite) move it back. You can also play with the rear spoiler as well to suit your needs.

Most guys I know have about 10- 12mm overhang (bumper to body) in the front. The rear wheel cutouts are pretty much right on the money, but the fronts depend on if you run the short or long wheelbase. I put the wheelbase in both short and long with a new set of freshly trued tires to make sure the front tires clear in both positions.

GLC for sure...... Nat's depends on fundage at that point of the season. If all the new engines stay in one piece and my home track seals the surface as they plan on doing, my reduced tire bill will allow me to go.

You should try out my home club for the Can-Am Challenge or Canadian Nat's.

Ontario 1/8th On-Road Club

It's in Hamilton, Ontario...... about an hour + past the Lewiston Bridge.
