GENERAL SETUP TIPS from xICEMANx41

Also will help you to make small adjustments in testing or practice to get the setup you like.

Balance

Front Bias
•Increasing Front Bias will tighten the chassis
•Decreasing Front bias will loosen the chassis

Left Bias
•Increasing Left Bias will help turn the car left in corner & loosen the chassis
•Decreasing Bias will cause the car to steer less in the turn and tighten the chassis

Wedge
•Increasing Wedge tightens the chassis
•Decreasing Wedge loosens the chassis

Front Sway Bar
•Increasing the Front Sway bar will tighten the chassis
•Decreasing the Front Sway bar will loosen the chassis from middle out

Rear Sway Bar
•Increasing the Rear Sway will loosen the chassis on entry
•Decreasing the Rear Sway will tighten the chassis on entry


Drivetrain & Aero

Gearing
•Type A Gears allow for overall better acceleration and lesser top speed
•Type B Gears allow for slower acceleration but higher top speed

Brake Bias
•Increasing the brake bias will tighten the car up in the turn when braking
•Decreasing the brake bias will loosen the car up when braking in the turn

Steering Lock
•Increasing the steering lock allows for slower response times of the wheel
•Decreasing the steering lock allows for quicker response times of the wheel

Grill Tape
•Increasing grill tape allows for higher top speeds and loosens the car but increases the engine temp
•Decreasing grill tape allows the engine to cool and tightens the car

Front Splitter
•Increasing the splitter allows for better downforce and loosens the car
•Decreasing the splitter slows the car down in top speed and will tighten the nose of the car


Suspension

Ride Height
•Increasing the FRONT LEFT ride height will tighten the front left of the car
•Decreasing the FRONT LEFT ride height will loosen the front left of the car and risk bottoming out on the track

•Increasing the RIGHT FRONT ride height will tighten the front right of the car
•Decreasing RIGHT FRONT ride height will loosen the right front of the car and risk of bottoming out on the track

•Increasing the RIGHT REAR ride height will tighten the right rear of the car
•Decreasing the RIGHT REAR ride height will loosen the right rear of the car

•Increasing the LEFT REAR ride height will loosen the left rear of the car, but causes the right rear to be lower resulting in the right front of the car the drag on the bottom
•Decreasing the LEFT REAR ride height will tighten the left rear of the car

NOTE: Higher rear ride heights allow the car to have better grip/stick in the corners, however creates more drag on straightways


Bumps
-The higher the bump is the more looser the car will be on entry, while a lower bump will tighten the car is on entry
-Have higher bumps when driving flatter tracks, a lower when on larger track

Rebounds
-The higher you go on rebounds the tighter the car will be when coming out of turns and the lower you go on rebound will result in the car being looser on exits


​When combining these two components your overall shock response will be as follows:
•LF Increase = will be tighter from mid-corner to exit
•LF Decrease = will loosen the car into corners

•RF Increase = results in tighter car off the corner
•RF Decrease = will loosen the car off the corner exit

•LR Increase = will loosen the car in and out of the corner
•LR Decrease = will tighten the car off corners

•RR Increase = results in loosening the car from mid-corner to exit
•RR Decrease = will tighten the car in mid-corner and off exit​


Springs
Are used to determine where the weight is distributed in the car. Higher spring setting will results in a tighter car on that side, while lower springs will results in a looser car on that side.

•LF Increase = will tighten the car in turns, resulting in a less controllable car in turns
•LF Decrease = will loosen the car in turns, resulting in a more controllable car in turns

•RF Increase = will tighten the car and hold higher top speeds in turns but will result in a less controllable car in turns
•RF Decrease = will loosen the car in turns with lower top speeds in the turns but will provide better contol in the turns

•LR Increase = tightens the car in turns, resulting in a less controllable car in turns
•LR Decrease = will loosen the car in turns, resulting in a more controllable car in turns

•RR Increase = will tighten the car and allow higher top speeds in turns, but will result in a more uncontrollable car
•RR Decrease = will loosen the car resulting in lower speeds in corner, but will also provide a more controllable car in turns


Rubber
-Adding LEFT rubbers will result in tightening the car in turns
-Removing a LEFT rubber will loosen the car in the turns

-Adding a RIGHT rubber will loosen the car in the turns
-Removing a RIGHT rubber will tighten the car in turns

Use a combination of both when looking for a long run car


Track Bar
Is used in order to make a car looser or tighter when entering a turn
•Increase track bar will result in loosening the rear of the car allowing for better corner entry
•Decreasing the track bar will result in tightening the rear of the car making it tighter on corner entry



Tires

Cold Pressure
Tires pressures are one of the most important components for a car!
•Lower tire pressures will result in more control of a car, but will result in higher fall off rates due to increase of tire temperatures which also results in faster tire wear
•Higher tire pressures will result in a tighter car with the gain of higher top speeds and longer lasting tires due to cooler tire temperatures. However, the increase of speed in the turns will result in loss of grip in the turns.


OVERALL - Use the highest tire pressure you can at tracks in order to gain more speed, but not too much to sacrifice overall control of the car

You can also use tires to loosen or tighten a car.  


General Tire Responses
•To loosen the LF decrease the tire pressure, to tighten the LF increase the tire pressure
•To loosen the RF decrease the tire pressure, to tighten the RF increase the tire pressure
•To loosen the LR decrease the tire pressure, to tighten the LR increase the tire pressure
•To loosen the RR decrease the tire pressure, to tighten the RR increase the tire pressure



Camber
Is used to make the car turn right or left
•LF = Negative camber turns the car left
•LF = Positive camber turns the car right
•RF = Negative camber turns the car left
•RF = Positive camber turns the car right
•RL = Negative camber turns the car left
•RL = Positive camber turns the car right
•RR = negative camber turns the car left
•RR = Positive camber turns the car right
-Balancing the camber from Left to right results in better combinations then staggering them
-Too much camber or too little can result in loss of traction in turns


Caster
-Is used to loosen the car in corners of a track
•Increasing the caster can provide more speed in the turn and loosen the car, but too much can cause the car to break traction
•decreasing the Caster will slightly affect loss of speed in turn and will tighten the car throughout the turn


Front Toe In
-This component can be used to loosen the front of the car increasing cornering speeds.
•Negative fraction will loosen the car in the corner allowing higher speeds, however to much can result in loss of traction.
•Positive fractions will tighten the car in the corner with the loss of corner speed.


Rear Left Toe
-Will loosen/tighten the left rear corner of the car in the turns and can decrease/increase corner speed
•Negative fractions loosens the car in the corner and increases corner speed
•Positive fraction tightens the car in the corners and decreases corner speed


Right Rear Toe
•Will loosen/tighten the right rear corner of a car in the turns and can affect the speeds carried into the turn
•Negative fraction will loosen the car and increase corner speed, but can cause the right rear to break traction
•Positive fraction will tighten the right rear corner providing better control and lower corner speeds.

If you have any questions regarding setups you can also post those here as well and someone that knows how to fix the problem you're having will help you when possible.
