5.8 settings


Recommended Posts

Depends on your crew weight and diamond arm rake. I set mine about 30mm behind the track and 25 on the loose gauge, I carry about 160 kilos of crew weight. rule of thumb, the heavier the crew the less rake and more tension to increase power, lighter crew more rake less tension.

Some people here advocate backing off the diamonds one full turn for fresh to frightening weather, I disagree with this as in the vast majority of heavier weather races there are plenty of light patches. As far as I am concerned it is far easier to de-power the rig than power it up.
