I see more guys using 3 degree of camber in the rear or so and the car just seems a bit more responsive and makes sharper steering rather than 2 degrees. Sure they may wear more or cone, but it all depends on what you like more. I realized using some front droop caused me to oversteer a bit so I'm gonna get rid of that now.

Setting the downstops to -1 or -2 (or even further), will allow the front inner wheel to have a bit more contact with the surface during cornering......

Sorry I ment understeer. I may go try 3 degree of camber n see how it works out for that track, or no droop as used before.

Yep... excessive wear on the pinions is something usual. Some days ago contacted Dave Cambell (DeltaDave here) and asked about the compatibility of their Hard coated pinions from the Delta XP4 with the Mugen clutchbell, he told me that 1st gear were compatible, but the ones from 2nd gear didn't came with the inner lip that separates from the 1st pinion, so their 1st gear will be compatible with us.

I'm in the process of buying some pinions from Delta and see if they last longer than the stock Mugen aluminium ones. I avoid to use the steel ones.

Default pinions

i noticed my pinions wore rapidly, but then i checked my gear mesh,i had too much play, since i have tightened the difference it has been much better.
still, not too bad considering the power to weight ratio of these cars and the incredible speeds that they reach.

Default pinions

also, another thing to check is the amount of drag brake that you are running, if any,this can also put alot of unwanted stress on the pinions

Default mrx4

nor do i, Harkonnen. i only mentioned it cause it seemed like he was a beginner and i know that i used to run my brakes a little tight.
i think the pinions will deteriorate after time anyway, nomatter what settings we use, the power of the motors , weight of the car, quick acceleration are all part of the problem.
personally, i find belts wear faster than pinions, i am experimenting with the new kawahara aluminum pulleys, so far, so good.
the true test, however, will be at toledo, next sunday.
