So would you say that this shim gave you more pivot through the corner? Did you notice any difference in putting the power down on the loose parts of the track?

the shim acted in the same way as lentheniong any buggy would ie more pivot but slightly less rear end coming out of a corner. as it was helping me to square up quicker the slight less on rear end traction wasnt an issue

Tom, how do you like your car to 'feel'?
Looking at your set-up it looks like a steering monster
Why no pre-compression spring on the rear?

I'm hoping to come over to Southport on Sunday, we'll have a chat

From what I can remember James Chappells set-up from York Regional is as follows:

Front
New Shocks
Kit pistons
30wt oil
5.5t springs
Castor all the way back (Original Upper wishbones)
1 degree toe in
1 degree camber
wishbones level for ride height

Rear
New shocks
Kit piston
40wt oil
Green associated front spring
2 degree toe in
1 degree camber
1 degree anti squat plate
wishbones level for ride height

Schumacher Yellow Minispike tyres, Outer and inner row removed from fronts

If there is any changes to this I'll edit it later.

hi northy... i like my car to have a touch of understeer, as it is if i use new tires if very hard not to grip role because it does steer like a monster ...

but thats why i use worn tires, and it goes great! if you do come to southport on sunday your more than welcome to have a go with it and see what you think.

as for not using the precompression springs on the back, i just copied nathans shock set up for the big bores as closely as i could and left the rest of the car how it was

hopefully see you on sunday

Tom

I thought it would be a steering monster on new tyres!

I must admit I used worn tyres at Southport National last year and the car was dialed Dan X-God Greenwood remembers just how worn they were to this day!

Mine is getting to the point now that the spikes are virtually gone and the actual tire is getting a bit thin, might be due a new set in three or four weeks

No problem lowie... was dry and sunny with lots of grip. Track is a range of AstroTurf and grass with Tarmac, concrete and cobbled features.

Hope this helps, Tom

The York setup was used when it was sunny with high grip. It was a flat grass track with some big features [jumps].
