Please keep the updates coming.. would be great if you could post a in car video of a race at some point...



The reinforced diff mount definitely helps in terms of easier shifting during mid-corner, and also sharpens throttle responses.

Very impressive.
Can you please share your camber and toe-in settings?
Are you still on Alpha-N map? What AFR the car is running on WOT?

Front camber : -3.5
Rear camber : -0.5

I don't quite remember front toe, but rear is near zero.
The map data is near perfect. The engine runs smoothly even at extended period of time.
AFR is around 12.0:1 at WOT since it is track car.

Ah, -3.5 on the front. That's why it doesn't understeer that much.
Thanks!

The camber doesn't effect much.
Widened the front track 20mm total + stiffened rear sub-frame & diff mounts helped reducing understeer much.

Wow, you got some work to do! :P

I keep reeding about the TRD gear swap, but I can never find why they really ever came up with that.
Could you find a little time to explain why it is better to swap 1st and 3rd gears? Is it only the shifting pattern?
If so is it that much faster to shift that way?

Keep up the nice job. :mrgreen:

The gearing between 2nd and 3rd is too wide, so shorter 3rd gear helps in terms of acceleration. :mrgreen:

Got it :mrgreen:
So do they actually swap the gearing rods in the case?
I imagine that launching needs more revving after the swap?

Because I have two sets, I am letting one go.

Hit my PM, if anyone is interested on this rare TRD piece.
