Author Topic:   changing dirt set up to ashalt?

Need some easy changes to chassis to race a dirt car on asphalt. Looking mostly what to do for springs, caster camber, shocks, and general setup. We are only changing over for 1 special race and need a little help. Thanks for any ideas.

We didnt exactly light up the field last week for our first time on pavement but generally speaking:
-level out the chassis (trailing arms,torque link,panhard bar)
-springs were pretty close to same
- Less rear % than dirt
-more left side % than dirt
-more front brake than dirt
-lower ride heights than dirt
-Little more RF camber than usual
-ball park 76 or 77 shocks front/94 or 95's rear
-Keep an eye on tire temps/contact patch
*** We needed MORE gear than what I would have had for the same size track if it was dirt.
Keep momentum,Be smooth and good luck!
