I will say this one last time. If you lower the upper arm on the inside you will raise the roll center, and increase camber gain. A shorter upper link will cause a more rapid change in camber gain. Please go back and look at the Cauley picture and imagine the upper link on a steep angle down then connect all the lines to this new instant center. The roll center will be higher. I just did it again myself to make sure.

Ain't this fun?
I have to apologise and admit I was wrong. I dont have any excuses other than the few I had to drink. Just moving to the inside hole does raise the roll center but moving to the inside and increasing the length of the arm to keep the same camber lowers it.

Wow, everyone has their own opinions. I wish I had the knowledge to know myself. Honestly, I have never raced on the track, but I visited their races today. Similar to the gearing opinions, the people there have mixed opinions on traction. A main guy says kind of low/medium two others say "such a high bite".

Anyway, RDHawaii, I couldn't tell you. They DO have two nitro classes. Tomorrow I will be ordering the WCE and was hoping box stock would work on this track. (slightly bumpy - just a tad, medium traction, small track) Some guys run 40/37 and 37/35 to me that sounds like a medium traction track to me if this can be judged by tires and current temp. I have about 40 hours track time, 15 hours with an R40, and 25 hours with an MTX3. Still learning.

Sounds to me, like this will mimick the stock set-up with the original parts.

Basically, a high bite set-up.

I lost the thin black O-ring that goes on the rear differential to make sure it doesn't leak. Do I have to purchase another one, or does anyone have a remedy to prevent the Diff. oil from leaking out, without an O-ring???

I'm not certain, but it seems to be just a difference in color. The names for them are the same with color as the only noticeable change. Maybe, someone here knows for sure?

Default Spring Rate Chart

Here's what I have laminated in my tackle box and set-up binder. It's a spring rate chart that I believe is still current. I highlight the springs I have (yellow for fronts and green for rears) for quick referencing. If you can't dial it in on race day, this will also help you figure out what your competition is using... minus the piston and oil wt they are using.

Hope this helps.

Default 2nd gear problems

Hey guys,

I just ran my WCE car for the first time at Cinci yesterday and had a blast except for the fact that I stripped 2 second gear spur gears. Both of them lasted approximately 20-30 minutes run time before shaving themselves smooth. The gear mesh was set correctly as far as I can tell, and I didn't have a problem at all with 1st gear. Any ideas on what could have caused this?

I used Permatex RTV Silicone Gasket Maker to seal my rear diff and it hasn't leaked since. The only thing is, you have to be neat about it.
