I am currently running 50/50 on my DIB but would like to try running the 1.8cs pulley that I have had lying on my workbench for over a year....
I know that each and every setup is different and unique to a drivers style as well as chassis layout and type but I have noticed there is a trend to run little to no toe-in at the rear lately.
What are the main reasons why 90% of those running cs use 1° or 0°?
Does it allow more slide or help with switches?
What would I notice if I changed from the kit standard 3.5° to say 1° or 1.5°, suspension settings aside?
As far as i noticed, with 3,5°, the chassis will tend to interrupt the drift and go straight.
With 0° toe in, the drift is more stable. Together with high CS-Rates, it allows me to do Korogashi-Style Countersteering.
That's why i prefer 0°.
I've chosen to drive with 1.8 cs - though i also have 1.3 and 1.5.
On our track last sunday i was advised through my mates to do a 0 or -1 toe and a little toe out in the front - didnt have a rear toe block so borrowed a -1 block.
Firstly, having -3.5 in the rear makes the car stable - -1 made it less stable, and snappy, but i dont really like that, because i like the car is easy within transitions and it also makes me trust the car more, so i made it back to standard.
I also tried to give the car a -0.5/1 toe in at the front, as that made the car more stable to my liking, i have a tendency to hate snappy car's since my Mst xxx-d pro was snappy with almost everything you threw at it so i'm very pleased with the Dib, well spent money :)
