Basic Track Set up for 2012 kit (#154)

Post by Ted FM 13 on Wed Mar 08, 2017 3:15 am

So last year was my first and I had overheating then head work issues and misc. weird stuff. Now, the mechanicals are finally sorted so I want to know where I'm at or should be for track set up. I run central CA tracks like Thunderhill (3 miles 15 turns with some good elevation change and target speeds varying from 45 to 100+ in turns and 120 on the straight). Without driver weight and nearly empty tank here's what I have right now:

camber front: 0.75 Neg deg rear: 0.5 pos deg.
toe front: 1/16: IN; rear: 0 (this is at the 27.5 in. long toe plate; not the tire circumference)
castor; no adjustment.

This is close to what I had for years on my standard (1983 design) Formula Mazda except for slight toe out in front. What would you guys recommend?

I happened to be talking to Scott about a part so I asked him what is the recommended set up for the 2012 chassis, Pre-complete switchover on design. He said:

What tires are you running on?

The rear stick axle has no adjustment really. So straight toe, 0 camber.

For slicks
Front should have .75 to 1.25 negative camber and 0 to 1/16" toe in.

If you are on an A7,R7, or more of a track tire, you want about 2 degrees camber in the front.

So there you have it, right from the horse's mouth. Sounds good to me.
