So Robert what was the reason for this change? What did it do for the handling?
BTW Dude, I was so proud of your results at the Winternats! I remember when you and I used to dice at Go Racing and Coral Springs and now I see you have moved to another level! Way to go star! Are you coming to our inaugural race in Jamaica for Easter weekend?
Look forward to seeing you!

Thanks Josh, I remember those days very vividly and I miss them. The change to the rear for Ft.myers just made the rear end feel more stable less roll. Hey what are the dates for that race I might be going up with the wife......

The TM touring bag is for 1/10 while the Formula 8 is for 1/8, but to me more space is better.

What diameter of foam is good ?

I use Ellegi tires and they work good with me.

I recieved my new 3racing tire truer and I was just thinking of what diameter should I start with. And what about the angle thing ? Is it good to make an angle for the tires ?

It all depends on the kind of track you run. For tracks with higher bites and little tire wear, 57F and 59R is near optimum. But for lesser traction and high wear track, you really have no choice but to start big, like 62F 64R.

You shouldn't need to cut the tires with camber angle--it'll just wear into it depends on your car set up.

Default pinion sizes for large tracks // excess rear right tyre wear

hey guys

i jus wanted to know if i go up a tooth in pinions from the stock would i then be using 17/22 ? will this work with 55/60 spur gears ?

this weekend that justpassed we had a pretty big race meet. my outer wheel being the rear right was suffereing from major tyre wear. in a 20 minute final it wore 2mm more than the rear left. the right wheel was the outer wheel so i know its doing more work.

would it be best to look at roll centre or maybe going to a higher shore tyre like a 40 ? the car was a bit loose on power on that corner

thanks
John

Hey John
Lowering the rear roll centre will help ease rear tyre wear a bit.......theres 3mm spacers available that replace the stock 2mm ones that will lower the rear roll centre......or you could change the blocks.....that said though I ran the final with the rear roll centre at stock setting.
In that final i started with the rear right fresh out of the box (64mm)....at the end it was down to 56.2mm........7.8mm wear!! .....the left side wore 3.3mm......I had 37 shore on the rear (didnt like the 40`s i tried in the final heat on Saturday at all).
Cheers

We didn't think that motor will turn it over, but it did very easy.
17/24 61/56. Also we were using "red' spring from EVOLVA for cluth.
