PostSubject: leaderboard circuit tuning   Tue Jan 28, 2014 2:31 pm

I'm running a '99 civic for the leaderboards, got some kinda fast times; But I have a tire temp problem. Right side of both my front tires heat up more than the rest on Laguna, opposite side heats up for Infineon. Is this just the fact that the tracks have predominant left or right hand turns or can I tune this out? If so, any tips?


Edit: This happens before any tuning I do and after any tuning I try to give better results

If you're using 30 psi, try raising the pressure some. Try like 34front 33 rear. It sounds track related but that might help with less sidewall flex.

I've got the camber at 1.1 front, 0.7 rear, 32.0 psi front and 31.5 rear and it helps but it keeps showing up. New rim size??

that could also help but you need more camber in my opinion. like -1.6 or -1.7 front and at least -1.0 or -1.1 rear. if you still have issues after that it could be your spring/damper preload. if yoiu want to send me the tune ill set it up on leguna seca for ya, see if I cant tune it out.

And I always liked tuning purpose built cars. What kind of lap time you shooting for on leguna seca?

1:35.1 or lower. I've got down to a dirty 1:35.3 but I'm aiming for 34's..

I sent you the pre-build, have fun!

That shouldn't be too hard right Kirk? In that Civic Laguna Seca challenge most cars were A550-ish and could put down those kinda times.

Anything below 1:34.9 is a top 100 time for b class. So it depends on your definition, based off hot lapping "skill"

Oh it's B class I thought ya'll we're talking about A class hence me mentioning A550 cars. Sounds tough, good luck.
