Most guys run -1.5 and that should correct your problem. I've always ran -2 with no problems. Try the -1.5 of camber and you should be all set.

I am almost positive I am running -1.5 degrees of camber at all four corners. I will double check it this evening. It is negative if the top of the tire is in towards the centerline of the car, correct?

Someone asked about the optional standoffs for mounting the battery hold down direct. Here is the image of the two sizes of standoffs available.

The short one uses the standard AE method with the screws & clips, the long one mounts the battery strap directly with screws, not clips.

Talking WOW!

Ran the car for the first time last night. It was great, knocked off around 5 tenths of a second from my previous runs. Had a few 11.0's, lap record is held by Junior (running BMI) at a 10.60, but that was on his track record run 28 5.04(??). He has that car sooo dialed.

Another thing I noticed is the car drove consistently this was shown in my overall consistent lap times. I think the chassis rigidity is the biggest key. Going to try some of the posted setups because I know the car and I can do better.

jrighter,
What lap times are you getting at Ultra with that setup? I'd like to try the zero toe in the rear but not many are doing that.

Thanks,
Dave

Hey Dave,
He was hitting the 10.90's...Awesome to hear you are liking the car. Did you get a 27 lap run in?

Kevin

Default saddle

would a chassis with a saddle pack configuration be possible or even plausable? 3 slots on one side and 3 on the other in the back half? is there a reason i've never seen this on a custom TC3 Chassis? it seems to work for some of the high end cars.
