GRK RWD Setting Memo

Finally got around to installing a multi link rear suspension using left over WUN parts I used to run in the front. I liked both bump in and out so I’ll have to do further testing. I’m also liking the high lever ratio in the rear, but also tried mounting the shocks to the knuckles but that didn’t feel good. Small modification to the front Ackermann made the biggest change though. Car now picks up speed pretty quick so I can keep up with CS running the same tires.

I decided to finally make a Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/flickyrc/

I’ll be posting random stuff throughout the week, and will be the best way to reach me as well.

大気開放 Damper

So I’m not a huge fan of damper maintenance, and the way I currently build my dampers shortens the maintenance cycle a little. I wanted to keep a similar damper feel to what I have now, where there’s minimal pressure build up on the top of the diaphragm. This way the dampers are linear and won’t rebound due to diaphragm pressure.

I’m not sure what the english term would be but drilling a hole on the shock cap is fairly common shock build method in Japan. The new GRK Globals come stock with the hole drilled out as well. Depending on the hole’s diameter you can change the feel as well but I went ahead and started off with a 2mm drill bit.
