If you dont mind purchasing from overseas, then Rc-Mushroom are good.....orders take about 3 days to reach Australia from Hong Kong.

It must be something else with my setup then. I'll do some testing at Ashby at the weekend

Default camber change...

Hello
i am using the stock roll centre front and rear
the track i race on is a medium grip track, carpark type asphalt with some small bumps. i use 37 shore tyres but on hot days with high grip we use 40s.

is the standard roll centre high or low ?

Also check the balls on top of the rear hubs and the camber links to make sure they havent worn and created any slop.

Default Bumper

Hello, I was thinking of changing from the Mugen to the V-one RRR but the thing that concerns me is the front bumper...does it have a front bumper? How do you keep from breaking parts if you dont have a hard front bumper?

It's really not an issue. The foam bumper absorbs most of the shock and works great. It is attached to smaller plastic bumpers and no one I know has any problems.

i smacked a stalled car at the end of our straight at home just coming off second gear gliding through corner... cracked him square on... no damage done at all to my surprise. rrr seems to be fairly resiliant to any serious damage.

front std rollcenter is 2nd lowest (b upper) rear std rollcenter is 3rd highest (b upper) afaik these are the std settings...

I used the red clutch shoe on loose tracks, it smoothe's thing out but it's deciving because you "feel" the car is slipping when it's really not. I went crazy cause i thought it was my clutch setting. But once you get used to it it's feels good. less punch but make's for smooth driving.

When youre setting the camber, what are using to measure it? A camber gauge against the wheel, or a setup station?

Yep it has a front bumper (which you`ll have to trim to size to fit your particular body)....and it really stands up to some quite substantial punishment...its very good

You should really set your ride height before you set the camber.
