Well it's time for a cc report. We have been chasing the car set up
lately.Seems we are usually our best in the first warm up and get
worse from there.lol! The car seems to be real finicky and sensitive
to adjustment.I am getting used to the tortion bar set up too, were
you adjust the right side to affect the left and vise versa.
One night i wanted to add weight to the right front because he was
pushing, but i turned down the right side tortion bar stop , which
actually then added weight to the left and lightened the right!
Double crossed him!was really a hand full. I see him trying to drive
it and it usually takes 3 or 4 laps till he can get a decent line
with a miserable set up.It dawned on me when I saw how bad it
pushed that I adjusted the wrong side.
Another thing that is apparent is that adding fuel has a major
affect. The very first practice day , the car was good on the first
run. I added 2.5 gallons to see how that affected the car. The fuel
and the oil we mixed with that adds almost 20 pounds. The car pushed
real bad. The track had gotten tighter after the first run so I
attributed it to the track change.
Last week the car was tight, we made a change to the right rear
spacing and air pressure. It worked, he had the fastest heat times,
but the car was loose off. We needed more fuel for the feature so I
added figuring it would help tighten the car. The track was getting
looser too. I added 2.5 gallons. Well it tightened up allrighty.
Could'nt steer again. Pushed like a dump truck.Just like the
practice session. Now we know not to do that again. Still had 5th
fastest time, then the shifter came off!!
