Yokomo mr4tc carbon

Postby vietladin_808 » Mon Mar 01, 2010 7:20 am

I'm trying to get help on setting up my car. I looked in the full countersteer forum, and there was nothing actually reliable. It's just set-ups that people are trying, or haven't even tried yet. I'm completely new to countersteering, so let me just start by describing my set-up. If this is in the wrong section, i'm sorry.

Yokomo mr4tc converted to double deck carbon version.
Front camber -8
Rear camber -6
Front toe +2
Rear toe +2
Front 1 way
Yokomo 2.0 rear
ABS tires

In the middle of a sweeper, the car will all of a sudden, just spin out. I'm not letting go of the gas at all. How many of you run a 1 way, and how many of you don't? I've heard so many opinions i'm getting so confused. I'm thinking it's too much camber all around, but that is why i'm here. :lol: Thanks for reading.

What i can see from your setup you should work on this:
-Change rear camber to around -1
-Try to remove toe(in the front atleast)
Especially the rear camber setup is important, most CS users have it around -1

I'm running a ball diff in a tamiya though, drifts fine.

could be lots of things, shock set up, camber , diffs, weight, i would start at a neutral set up, say

2 deg neg camber front and rear
6 mm ride hight allround
soft shocks allround
an ball diff front if you have one , and locked rear diff,

try that and make small adjustments after a while, its better to try the setups you make for a while not just 5min because it always easyer/ better to adjust your self than your car

So, the majority of you don't even run that much camber. Interesting. I forgot to mention that I'm running Rayspeed soft springs in the bakc and Rayspeed medium hards inthe front. I see that I have much trial and error to go through!!

Counter Steer Drifting setup is so sensitive. Nobody never know right set up. The setup changes tier and road surface too,

Yes ! we need more your setup info.
Please post Counter-Steer Full Setup
viewforum.php?f=34
on your car spec with format
viewtopic.php?f=34&t=23
And chassis pick and shock position pick.

Is toe +2, mean toe out or toe in?
What is you set a super and pinion?

How about a Steering Mod?

if you post your spec there, may be we can helped your setup and driving technique .

Thanks

Most of the previous post have good suggestsions...Personally, I prefer 1-way diff over a ball diff any day. 1-ways are predictable IMO whereas ball diffs can tighten or loosen on you over a period of time making them less predictable and requiring you to constantly re-adjust it (which means taking it apart)

For toe, I saw you posted +2. If that is 2*deg. TOE OUT, than I woud DEF change that. I run mine at 0* degree toe...mayyybbeee 1*degree

Rear Toe Ive tried -3 Toe In and now trying -2 toe in...the less makes it less twitchy

Best bet is to properly fill out your set-up sheet like Katsumi suggested and then look at other Yokomo set-up sheets on that section. I know a few guys have Driftmasters and LCG which is very similiar to a DP w/CF Decks. Those will give you similar starting points since the weight distributions are similar.

Good luck!

The sudden spinout could be from the one-way diff being slightly defective. I've experianced that aswell so tryed spinning it in cirkles to the point that it would happen again and see what it was. Wwhat happend to me is that one of the front wheels stoped giving power and started spinning the opposite way, acting lika a open differential instead. This only happends ocationaly so it seems pretty weird. Gonne check it out some more.
