Is decreasing droop seen as a valuable tuning option for the team c buggies or does everyone leave it standard?

Quite a few increase it on the rear by drilling an inboard hole in the rear wishbones and moving the shock bottoms in a notch..

Not seen anyone decreasing it tho...

We often remove droop to front shocks when racing on carpet by adding limiters.

So removing front droop or adding rear droop is beneficial. Since I use low profile cut staggers up front I suppose I have effectively removed some droop at the front then?

What impact would decreasing droop all round have on the buggy's handling/grip?

Hi Ian

The 02c has very little droop on the front as standard, and from what ive experienced if you have too little droop on the rumbles the car doesnt take them very well, also having droop on mine makes the car take off better and also it has aided in rear traction because of weight transfer (lifting the front end under acceleration) i'm trying to replicate my settings to go on my TM2, tryed it wednesday and it was awesome, but thats a different story.:thumbsup:. No droop or very little will work on flat tracks because the car wont roll as much, but for what we do at Manfield you need some droop.

also Ian if you want to have a look at how my old car is set up you are more than welcome. You may have to wrestle it off Curtis cos he's running it now:confused:
