hi guys...

that my set-up for southport...

southport is a mixture of surfaces, mainly astro and grass with a couple of othe sections made up of cobbles, tarmac and concrete..

this set-up was used on a dry and sunny day, with plenty of grip on the track, however it does also work well in damp conditions as it makes the car a little less likely to suffer from grip role etc....

hope this helps

Tom

i add washers inbetween the front of the rear hub and the ball joint adam and i tried it in the last final at the regional just to give a little more pivot. tested it again at epr yesterday in the dry and found it to be good with the full set up shown

Hi its Adam. I've realized that by doing that you are reducing the hub anti-squat too. I've worked out that by adding 2MM it will make the hub and the wishbone parallel. While also making the wheelbase 2MM longer. I wish i had thought about on Sunday as i think that would have improved my car on the dusty section going onto the straight. You car seemed really stable there and i think this could explain it, do you agree? Will definitely try it next time we're at a track. I think i will also find a way of adjusting the top wishbone as we talked about so that i can change the anti-squat and the wheelbase independently.
