Re: Autocross Alignment Specs

Just as a comment, at the Slaloms...that clock always ticks. No sense having eleventy seven million HP, when 150 will do. If you are spinning your tires, you are NOT moving forward. For me, what I found, in my 27 years of Solo, was tailoring the boost to the event. Best thing I ever did was put in a...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Car goes into Andy's later in the spring to have it put on and couple of other things. With my shoulder blown out I cannot fight with the exhaust to get it apart to droop the cross member,

Re: Bike rides

To the Sky and Beyond This story will be an evolving one over the next six months, as Matt and I prepare for our epic wilderness hike in August. This past long weekend we headed out for our first real hike of the year, doing some good elevation change and some 14 Km under our belt. This same hike la...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

So, here we are almost 3 months do the day when I started my oil change..... Put a new "O" rig in my oil filter adapter, hooked up all the lines and poured 6 litres of oil into the thing. I did pull the valve cover off to pour some oil, over the cam and rockers as it has say for so long. H...

Re: Autocross Alignment Specs

You do NOT want to have toe out in the rear!!!!!!! You may find you have a over steering car with both a narrow track on the rear plus toe out. And as Jeff said, gearing is one of the best ways to get performance increases and tall tires are not the way to go. At this point I guess you just need to ...

Re: Autocross Alignment Specs

For me, that is correct. I am also talking when I had the car setup in it's most competitive solo mode, 6 degrees of castor. If you just sit in the car with that amount of castor and turn the steering wheel say hard left, you can see the fender RISE as the wheel goes to extreme negative camber, THAT...

Re: Autocross Alignment Specs

Hah, I realized I did not say what camber I run, and like Duke, I have found that 2.5 -3 is good with sticky tires. I am running 2.5 right now ( front) and get good temps across the tread face. Same with the rear, the loading is so great with sticky tires that they need that camber in the real world...

Re: Autocross Alignment Specs

Re: the toe out suggestion. I only mentioned it as this was before we figured out that most of the springs available at the time, were just plain too soft, so upon toss in to a corner, there was just inherent understeer as the weight transfer loaded the outside front corner with too much body roll. ...

Re: Autocross Alignment Specs

Your tires will in some ways determine what CAMBER is best. CASTOR, which if you run quite a bit, indices NEGATIVE camber on turns, this of course is good. Quite a bit I would say would be from 5.5 - 6 degrees of Castor. Most of us Vancouver guys run 5.5 as our base setting for castor. Make sure the...

Re: Dime Quarterly ending

As Byron has stated, as our cars have become worth significant money, I would not even run Knox now if I could. Like mine, Cam's car is street legal and that is where the value is, not as a "race" car. I have seen 1/2 a dozen 510's written off at Knox as it is totally unforgiving when it a...

It will be just fine!

And Rob, you are right, the great un-equalizer is fuel...but it does put a smile on my face.
