Re: Front - Rear track width and transition while cornering.

I've inspected bump steer and it was close to zero. Then, I checked caster and it was waaaay off (arround 3 degree in total) thanks to local alignment shop. I'll go for more aggressive caster and recheck for bump steer, starting from spring 2017...

Re: steeringpump faillure

LukeC: It's great to see you here! Thank you for being kind in sharing your work and knowledge! 105gta: Be aware that there are more models of this "square" ps pump. Some of them have pressed in orifice which is hard to take out (requires drilling and pressing in new fabricated part). Also, if press...

No problems at all! We had one track day since last update and finally, I don't think about ps pump performance any more. :D Next season will start frim april...

Re: Front - Rear track width and transition while cornering.

One question; bump steer can be corrected with additional positive caster? Idea is to reduce camber from -3,0 to -2,0 and add more caster.

My long shank upper ball joints are 20mm longer than those from factory... Heres photo of some additional custom work :)

Re: Front - Rear track width and transition while cornering.

Thanks! This is provisional position, I tend to do some aditional mods and welding. I'll post pictures when finished.

First things first, front end higher rate springs and bump steer correction.

Re: Front - Rear track width and transition while cornering.

This is position of my rear coilover atm, left wheel from behind. Once when I replace fuel tank with fuel cell, I plan to move them a bit closer to factory spring perch. Upper side of coilovers would enter just a bit in the boot...

Re: Front - Rear track width and transition while cornering.

105gta: Thank you, those mods sounds interesting. But first, I'll have to adress general spring setup, ride height, camber etc... Duk: Rear anti roll bar is factory bar, I'm thinking of removing it completely since I've changed position of shocks and springs - now they are located next to rear wheel...

Re: Front - Rear track width and transition while cornering.

Kevin, these are all great informations and I am really thankfull! Comparing to your data, I had difference for rear tyres which had to be 0,3 bar softer to grip better - obviously because of bad f/r setup. Front was set -3 camber and 1mm toe out, so it was pretty good in hairpins, but one tyre took...

Re: Front - Rear track width and transition while cornering.

Nice suggestion Kevin, but I removed front coilovers to switch springs for harder ones, so now is not possible to check previous heights. Do you have inputs regarding that topic for future setup?

Re: Front - Rear track width and transition while cornering.

215/50 are on 7' wheels, they were better on 7,5' but i have some clearence issues. On the rear, i have SZ uniball + poliurethane bushings all arround and I'm thinking to switch watts levers to uniballs... I've read some threads about changing RC on the rear but it is not clear to me how they calcul...

Re: Front - Rear track width and transition while cornering.

Softer in the rear will be too soft, Im afraid... I think I should increase rate of front springs since rsr coils come with 125kg/60kg rear.

Cambered dedion is on my wishlist!

Your front track width is stock?

Front - Rear track width and transition while cornering..?

Hi! Need some advice from you track wolves about this topic since I have quite nervous rear end. Do you build your cars within factory proportions (front/rear) or you're changing track width? Current setup on my track car: Front: Coilovers 80kg/cm springs + factory torsion bars, Camber -3, Toe out 1...

Re: steeringpump faillure

Hi! I'm not sure if I understand you, but I'll try to explain: In original restriction for this pump; there are three holes on sides that are connected with main hole which leads to supply line. On new restriction, I made only one smaller diameter hole if compared with factory unit. It would be cool...

Re: Helloo from Serbia! (My 24v conversion)

Hi! Bad host does wonders... :( I'll snap some pictures of your interest. I've moved main hoop backwards to have more space for legs and maybe in future pedal box - also seat "ears" where close. Note that you will have to cut out seat stands since they are to high. I'm 186 cm tall and I had issues w...
