The Hall Bros tackle anther core concepts in RC car setup - bump steer!
The Hall Brothers explain two critical car suspension geometry properties and how they affect your car's handling.
RCCrewChief explains the basics of setup physics. And when I say "basics," I mean more in-depth than any other video you'll find out there.
RCCrewChief explains the nitty gritty of suspension.
RCCrewChief explains how weight transfer in your car happens and how to tune your suspension to take advantage of it.
RCCrewChief explains suspension stiffness and how it affects your RC car's handling
RCCrewChief explains suspension camber and camber gain and how they affect your RC car's handling.
RCCrewChief explains roll center and how camber gain relates to it.
RCCrewChief explains the Ackermann angle and how it affects an RC car's steering response.
RCCrewChief explains damping, shock springs, pistons, oil, and how they all work together to help your RC car soak up the bumps and stay stable in the turns.
Patrick Beck of Tonisport walks us through the essentials of Active Rear Suspension systems that alter the car's rear toe as the suspension is compressed.
Schumacher's Michal Orlowski explains in this video how to tell when you should replace parts, so you don't end up with the dreaded DNF.
Ty Tessman of XRAY walks us through each step of his shock rebuilds, focusing on getting 0% rebound. The video is focused on the XB series buggies, but applies to all 1/8th scale off-road vehicles.
EvanJayAwesomeRC walks through the basics of what "roll center" means and how it affects the handling of your car.
Most RC cars allow suspension tuning via the mounts that hold the lower suspension arms to the chassis, but some cars extend this to the upper arms as well, making for a very complex mix of options.
Max Mört explains the effects of anti-squat, kick-up, pro-dive, and pro-squat on RC car handling (please note: "kick-up" and "pro-lift" are the same.)
Max Mört gives a great, in-depth explanation of how wheelbase adjustments affect off-road RC cars and how to use it in your tuning to optimize weight transfer and turning ability.
Max Mört takes us through these fundamental settings, and why they do what they do.
This is the best explainer we've seen on roll center yet - check out these great videos from Max Mört that get into the racing physics of why roll center does what it does. He focuses on off-road, but the principles work across all types of racing. Oh, and get comfy and make some popcorn - these two videos clock in at over 27 minutes.
