Re: Small tire vs Big tire

Yes, its a 4-link car. IC height isn't optimal on it I don't think but we've run out of holes. Winter project to weld in new brackets on the chassis.

Re: Small tire vs Big tire

I'm helping on a big tire car for the 1st time and we can't keep from killing the tire, even with the instant center WAY, WAY long. Shocks are on the dyno as we speak so hopefully that'll tell us what's wrong with the setup.

Re: Small tire vs Big tire

No issues with the ladder bars being too short to keep the car from being over-hooked on the big tire?

Dang, when you break something, you do it right. Sorry about that bad luck.

Re: Painted car!!!!!

I just traded some stuff for a pair of fiberglass doors. I'd like to use stock hinges, latches and door handles if I can find a couple junk doors to pull the hardware from.

Re: Alternator Internal Regulators

After more reading, it looks like my alternator should already be set for 14.9v. Highest I'm seeing going down the track is 13.5v, which is a lot better than it was with the lower amp alternator I had before.

Re: Alternator Internal Regulators

Alternator Internal Regulators

Is there any adjustment on internal regulators? Can a regulator set to 14.5 be turned up to over 16v somehow?

Re: Small tire vs Big tire

Might be. I think I saw something from Tyler Crossnoe on FB about it so that got me thinking it was Memphis. Might be both?

Re: Small tire vs Big tire

Is it SGMP or is it Memphis?

He better go test on a real track on radials if he's going to do any good.

Re: Small tire vs Big tire

We had a race late last year that was probably as bad as no prep in the summer. It was really cold and no one was getting down the track until eliminations started. I was very happy to just be crewing that race and not have my car out there. Somehow no one piled it up. More than a few close calls th...
