    kaibeecee is a wise man....

    Set-up in the hills is different to drift....getting you chassis to work the best it can with the rubber is your goal....

    have a look at v8 supercars on the warm up laps and watch when they weave to heat the tyres....the amount of movement and roll will shock you.

    do you mean that a bit of body roll to enhance tire grip or something. i hope you do.

    people tend to confuse tire grip with mechanical grip, and set their cars up so the two fight, and effectively counter each other.

    softer spring rates and stiffer swaybars does wonders as you're not relying totally on the tire, but assisting it to do its job at a safe rate


    you are fail!!!!!!!!!!!!! first i said TRACK not drift track. aka sprints and so on i also said not to different as in there are differences in areas but the general set up stearing and so on is changed yes softer for the hills and harder for the sliding you are verry smart . 2nd yes dip as in to increas grip aka slight body roll at a controlled rate.

    plus you cant have dip, and roll, cant really have dip in the first place,

    i rekon a good street set up, would be;

    6 and 4
    stiff sway bars
    good bushes all round
    rona arms
    agxs
    a fair bit of castor, not too much, around +3.5
    1mm toe out
    a ride height thats not stupidly low, so you can get some travel
    a 1.5 way
    matched tyres all round

    why so dip or roll what ever you want to call it is used by v8's, sprint cars and so on. just to clear up im not talking stupid amounts just enough that you can see it from outside.
