Probably I'll work on these settings next race and see what happens....what you think , sounds like a good move?
Thanks for reply!
If the front end travel is allowed to come up really fast, the negative result is what happens when you run out of suspension travel. If you do not run out of suspension travel gently, you will unload the rear of the car because you just jerked the tires off of the ground resulting in a shockwave down the chassis unloading the tires."
you'll figure it out.. been doing a great job so far.. have fun!
On the video I linked here, at 4:06 you can see exactly what is happening. At launch, the rear tires bite , the front start to lift, the rear end start to rise and the front suspension too.
Car do wheelie, rear is high, but soon the front tires bounce on and off the ground. Looks like the front is rising too fast and unloading the rear, but aparently, the rear tires are still planted.
The caltrac bars are set on the lower holes front and back...I'm considering set the bar at the upper hole in the axle side to lower the I.C. to try to soften the hit a little.
What you think?
I'll try to have a friend filming on 60 FPS the car launch next time.
Thank you very much for the help and good words!
