looking for info and tips

Post by teamliviD » Wed Apr 20, 2011 11:28 am

Hey guys I'm looking for some good info on a few questions I have about car set up for autocross.

1. Tire pressure? I've been told anywhere between 38-42psi.

2. Suspenssion? I've been told hard up front and harder in the rear to allow for rotation.

3. Traction bars? Are they hurting or helping me?

The main issue I'm having is that the car feels like its sliding all over the pkace. BC's are set at 21f and 28r, rear sway bar set on hard and tire pressure set at 40 plus the front traction bars all on Falcon Azeins.

Pressures sound about right. Invest in a pyrometer http://www.saferacer.com/longacre-delux ... ductid=638

take tire temp after every run and aim for an even temp across the face.

The suspension set up is up to you some people like huge rear roll stiffness because they think its the only way to get FWD cars to turn. My car is perfectly neutral with a softer rear and even tire pressures front and rear (33psi on Hooisers)

Traction bars are good in fact Im making a set for myself.

Just remember these cars are a handful you really have to drive these to go fast
