RWD, First Steps

02/02/2015 at 7:36 pm

I’ve been enjoying CS a lot recently but I might switch back to RWD for a month. There’s been more RWD drivers popping up recently at Super G, and after switching the front end on the GRK RWD I haven’t gotten a chance to tinker around with it much.Tatsuken on GRK RWD

Trail

I see people throw around the words KPI and scrub when they talk about knuckles, but trail tends to get left out.

DIB Vertex Setting Memo

01/05/2015 at 5:31 pm

I plan to change a bunch of things on the DIB to better suit a low grip surface (Project G). Figured I’d memo a few things and take some pictures in case I need to go back to my old setup.

GRK RWD Setting

Since the GRK RWD is slowly starting to drive good on carpet, for memo purposes.

Front Lower Suspension Geometry

I saw a few TN drivers trying it out so I gave it a try. I reused the stock 3.5 RR block that I had lying around and put it in place of the stock FR block. It wasn’t a huge difference but I think it helped the fronts trace the ground more?

Hybrid Knuckles

I managed to get a pair of RE-R Hybrid knuckles from Vertex to use with my DIB. I like the fact that these are swan necked, allowing more wheel clearance and low scrub. But after a week of use, I pulled them off and went back to the TN knuckles.

7075?

Both Overdose and Wrap Up sells a 7075 aluminum chassis now, and it’s interesting how stiff chassis are trending now. My guess as to why they’re coming out with super stiff chassis is because of the abundance of springs and suspension components now.

GRK RWD

The GRK RWD is sorta done, and it sorta runs now! I have no idea how to drive rwd, and the car has a long ways to go in term of set up as well. I enjoy driving the DIB a lot more so it’ll take a while until I’m happy with this guy.
