Body tuning
« on: April 25, 2014, 11:11:47 AM »
Hi guys,

I have been trolling on some forums and if I read correctly (between the lines) is there some factors you should consider when mounting your body?
height of the body from the ground
forward or rearward mounting
and also wings... different wings and raising and lowering of wings, I always thought you have to mount the wing as it comes stock and can only use the wing supplied?

can someone shed some light on this for me please?

thanx

Hey charel. You ate correct the body tuning does give different handling characteristics. For instance. Placing the spoiler further back will give the car less steeringv through a corner and we'll give it more down force on the straight placing it further forward will increase turning but less down force on the straight... The height will also make a difference as the higher it is on the chassis the more air can flow under the wing... This week reduce drag ever so slightly.

Putting the body forward and back gives almost the same as with the wing just more effective the wing is fine tuning.

Then the height of the body. The lower it is the lower the COG so you will have better turning in corners and less movement of the car through corners... but check rules on height before you adjust this. Actually ask of these have rules so you have to watch out to be legal.

All in all this only affects Mr J and and his mates that count seconds in the thousands also your car has to be perfectly setup so that these settings can be taken into affect...still good to know though.
