Latest setup for ERYX 4.0

As you maybe already noticed, i can only try setups once a week. But i am getting closer to something good here!

The car is almost all standard except widen the front with 3.5 suspension brackets. With the standard chassies having much flex, we need to make the car flex less for carpet racing becuse the car apparently is built to run best on asphalt.

So after changing my car closer to Viktor Wilcks setup i tried the LTC-r body, but it seems it makes the whole car twist in a weird way. So i changed bodyshells and small tweaks here and there i could beat my previous laptimes by half a second. That is extreme, just by changing bodyshells.

The bodyshell that worked best was PF Dodge dart, but i also tried the Mazda 6 GX body also with fast laptimes. The Mazda GX was a nice drive with little less grip and really nice feeling. Personally i liked the GX the best, but the dodge had faster laptimes with it. If i am lucky, maybe i can try more one more time before the race 13 february.

I couldnt film this time, but i just tried to understand how a car could change so much just based on the bodyshell, it was so weird for me. But i think becuse of the high grip in the chassies, i just dont need all that downforce and specially not steering becuse it already have so much.

But even before changing bodies, widening the front made a huge difference and decresed the traction roll very much!

until next time!
