So I did my video's of each corner (thumbs up for the RePlay XD) and found some interesting stuff going on in the rear. As expected the RR compresses in turn 1 to the apex. The LR extends. I wasnt really expecting this on the 22 banked track. From the apex off under power the RR compresses further and the LR extends a little more. The LR does not return to ride height until just before the next turn entry. So in effect the body roll reaches a set static position at the apex and then continues to roll under acceleration, releasing the LR.
Also the two 'soft' rubber bushings I have in the front upper links of the rear are allow the rear end to twist ALOT. Rotates down in deccel and up in accel. I already changed the right side to a poly bushing. Past track champion said he had poly bushings everywhere and didnt have any bind issues.
My camera experiment opened several good discussions and I've been told to stiffen the shocks all around. Going to put AFCO 7's in the front. REportedly the AFCO's dyno consistently and are stiffer that the PRO's which reportedly never dyno consistently. Advice is from the top two competitors from last year, who moved up to late models. Going to use my front PROs in the rear.
