Hey yall,
A question for Yall.   I built this car today, (Tried anyway) Its a Kyosho TF02 Spider from 20 years ago.
I modified the Sus. in the front for about 85 deg. angle on it.
Is the camber to much for a RWD RC Car?
I know we need a Very Steep steering angle, but will the look hurt the handling?
I have Radius-ed tires coming tomorrow, CG Tires.

Heres a pic for yall to look at.

It looks quite extreme that way. - Steering geometry is the most important setting on a RWD car. It will either make or break how the car behaves. In that regard even very slight changes to toe or Ackermann make a lot of difference.

That said, I would recommend to start off with a more neutral setting for the front. Once you know that the car runs well you can go on and do some crazy camber experiments. At that point you will know why the car behaves the way it does and can adjust it accordingly. - The camber setting I usually use depends on the caster and KPI angle. I try to set the camber in a way, that the inside wheel (that´s the outside one in a drift) gets full contact patch at around 50° of steering angle, since that is the "comfort zone" of drifting angle and the most used steering lock.


In another post you wrote about the mechanical brake setup you did to the car, can you provide some pictures of it, that sounds really interesting. Very Happy

Hey Davis, I dont have the H/B Cars anymore, but could tell ya how to achieve it, if your interested in it.

Did some work today on my car, got the wheel angle about right, snaps right back to center too Cool

Will put a pic in also, if I can on this forum, I just posted 4 posts, and none showed up.
