can anyone help me please tell me a formula for a 1/4 mile track .24 degres banking
What Kind of car are you running? If its a stock class I can tell you that on a high banked track less is more! I run a 3/8 of a mile with 18 degree banking, the car had over 5 inches in the back and 4 in the front, it didnt start turning good until I brought the stagger down to about 3 in the front and a little over 2 in the back!!This is just my personal experience, im sure if anyone else chooses to reply they will tell you different!there is also an article on this site that talks about setting up a hobby stock, if thats what you are running then that may help!
I just did notice that you posted this in the asphalt forum! My advice is for dirt track, im sure asphalt will be a bit different!!
3" in the back is good, and the less you go in the front will loosen up the car. Start around 1" and go down
ross181:3" in the back is good, and the less you go in the front will loosen up the car. Start around 1" and go down3" in the back is good and the less you have in the front the looser the car will be. Start at 1" and go down
depending what class you are running, I would start with the rightrear,rightfront,and leftfront all the same size or as close as you can get, use the left rear as your stagger tire. is your car open rear end or locked it makes a difference.
Dear John Yes there is a formula to actually calculate stagger. Basically stagger if the difference in tire size in percentage. So if the inside tire is say 100 inches in circumference and the outside is 105, the right is 5% bigger. Now how to know how much percentage to start with? Simple; the tire stagger percentage difference is the same as the percentage difference from the radius of the turn formed by the outside wheel to the radius of the turn formed by the outside wheel. This is for black top
DOOOHHH: Thanks for the heads up guys. The last sentence of my tire stagger formula post should have read: Simple; the tire stagger percentage difference is the same as the percentage difference from the radius of the turn formed by the outside wheel to the radius of the turn formed by the inside wheel
D+.5(TW)xCl-------------D-.5 (tw) D IS TURN DIAMETER AND CL IS THE CIRCUMFRANCE OF THE LEFT REAR , complicated just go with what the car wants it will tell you in the midle of the turns if the car is tight or loose in the middle go up or down in split, i would have to say around two and a half to three to start iceracer45
