MP9 Setup Notes and News: We travel regularly around the internet findng out information about the MP9 because just like you we race these things! I figured we could just put a running list of interesting and pertanent info that we come across in one place.
Standard Silicone oils in TDC diffs?
We haven't tried the red one because we got the
recommendation to try
7000 instead and David loves it so i haven't tried
After we put in the TCD in may it was only at
European championship B
we changed to 10000 in the front on that grass
One good thing are that silicon oil in TCD don't
smell as the red one :-)
Tower and Medium Shocks?:
Its the same with the low tower.. he always using
it. Today we made
some tests on the track hosting the Swedish
Nationals next weekend and
switched between the short or long rear tower and he
likes the low
tower better as the car is more stable.
After some tuning with the TKI kit, I decided to install the lower
tower and shocks and found it was the exact lengths we had the TKI
parts set to droop wise. We left it on since this helps to lower the
CG weight on the rear of the car since they are shorter. Also using
MP777 WC foams under the bladders keeps the shocks consistent for a
long time. You have to bleed them properly though, as they can build
up a lot of rebound when pushed all the way in and possibly blow out
the lower seals and clips. Once done right, they work consistently.
