Greasy Steve said:So how does each one affect an oval car? I realize all 1/10th pan cars have 0 degree, but what would happen if I ran something different?
I was amazed at how many guys were running ASC 5 degree caster blocks in mod at the Birds, and have seen some of that trickle down into 4300 too.MIKE VALENTINE said:Even with the zero degree blocks (except when running zero castor) you get reative castor as the suspension works. In todays racing, where it's mostly 4 cell stock there's normally no need for them. But when running faster classes 4 cell or 6 cell mod they are still used by some and even in the slower classes at some tracks.
I always took it for granted there wouldn't be anti dive characteristics on a rc car since there was no brakes on the frt wheels to push agaainst the suspensionat what ever angle it was at. Maybe I'm wrong in my thinkingvwal said:With a zero block you have some dive (AE calls it reactive caster) in the car but if you run the 5 or 10 degree blocks then you get even more dive. If they went the other way you would have anti-dive. Were they running them on the rf or lf? Just curious as I would think it wouldn't be a good thing on the rf but maybe that would help the car turn a little. On big cars they run dive in the lf and anti-dive in the rf to help the car get and stay on the lf tire.
Caster on r/c cars is one of those things that does not reallySDL98 said:I always took it for granted there wouldn't be anti dive characteristics on a rc car since there was no brakes on the frt wheels to push agaainst the suspensionat what ever angle it was at. Maybe I'm wrong in my thinking
