Is anyone running quantum singles? I just got them and trying out the settings. I wonder what people use on street / track.
That's not really very accurate or relevant, apart from Europe having every type of cct known to man, they also got extensive testing round Australian ccts and roads too.As far as help from Elise parts goes, with all do respect they are not familiar with the tracks here (very different from European ones) and the tires are totally different too, so I looked at the options from Nitron\S111 and used that as reference.
as a general rule, once your at ~17-18 clicks from full stiff, your getting close to being off the end of the scale - at this point, with (relatively) stiff springs, your heading into un-damped territory, this can then actually make the road-ride worse... (the exact point this happens really depends on the springs, wheels and tyres you have)Posting an update, I played more with them at a recent autocross. I started with 11 all around but the car was rolling too much. Then I took it down to 8 which was better but the car was loose. So I went with 8f/10r which then lowered to 7/9 for my best time of the day. I had no more runs to test but next time I would try 6/8 and 7/8 as well. I was running the ad07s on 26/29 tire pressure.
Now I am waiting for my upcoming track days to test more at high speed.
I am settled to 10/11 on the street for now which works decently on both ad07 and r888. I tried softer setups up to 16 all around but I did not like the crushy feeling of bumps. The harder setup is more sensitive to smaller bumps but seems more progressive otherwise.
No,Simon, with a stiff front ARB, do you run one on the rear also?
always hard to say without knowing the exact setup of the car and track etc. that said, I doubt you would want to go stiffer than ~ -6eliseparts (Geary) also told me to not go above 18 clicks no matter what, for the same reason that Simon is stating.
I will be installing my 1" ARB in the next couple of days. For now I plan to set it at second softest setting and take if from there. I will be running with r888 on the track. So far, I wanted to test how the car is different with the new shocks before adding the ARB. Since I installed them myself and kept playing with them, this is turning into a nice learning experience for me on how suspension works. No matter what, it is certainly an upgrade over stock bilsteins in terms of grip and road feeling.
Simon, based on your experience, any tips on the adjustment settings we should be trying out?
