f-1/pancar side links
« on: January 20, 2017, 08:04:41 PM »
Ok I have some ideas as to how this works but I'd like some pancar experts to chime in.

Links parallel to chassis has pod stability effect only left to right. The wider they are the more stable the pod.

but what about when you angle the links? ie /\.

I assume that using the wider rear/narrow front config will have a toe effect, making the car want to drive straight on power. I've been reading some blogs but I am not finding a clear explanation.

Please only respond if you've had very clear experience with this and how it affects the car. I'm not really looking for everyone's opinion of how they think it works. I want to hear from someone who has extensively tested this and KNOWS how it works.

FYI, looking for more stability so I can get on the power!

Sorry I'm late to reply. The answer is if you have the side links angled in I believe you get more rear grip, more forward tracion say. if they are straighter you get more rotation

Thanks Ben, this is what I was wondering. It's what my F-1 needs, I will try it on my next practice session.

Hi D how did that fair out for you? I'm assuming your looking for more rear grip.  Fnthay wasn't what u wanted try putting in some negative expotential on your radio.  You could also try taking some punch out of the ESC.  Either or  will work well
