Hello all and thank you in advance for any contribution.
So as some of you may already know, I am a big guy. 6’9" and 225 lbs. I am currently running a TaG 09’ Leopard in a 2012 Tony Kart Racer. I have been struggling to find a good baseline for my size and package (fighting a hop in the hairpins). After adjusting setup and driving, I have been able to reduce the hop, but not eliminate it. Thanks to all for your suggestions thus far!!
On the advise of @tjkoyen I pulled the trigger on a “harder” axle ordering an H. I also pulled the trigger on the Sniper Alignment set. After successfully installing the new axle, I threw the Snipers on to check things out. Following all the centering steps, I was surprised to find the camber off from side to side. I neutralized all the pills on the king pins and checked again. Still off. Decided to run a Caster Sweep. Found what seemed to be a large discrepancy from one side to the other. With a ruler placed vertical on the lower steering support, I was getting a 2 cm difference from one side to the other on caster sweep and 1 mm (one dot negative, one dot positive on the grid) camber difference from side to side. I can reasonable assume something is bent and would explain my struggle in chasing a good baseline setup and inconsistent results.
My question is how bent is enough that it can not be fixed? Camber issue seems very small, but the big split on the caster sweep has me concerned. I played with the caster pills to see if I could lower the split, but it did not seem to make much of a difference without throwing camber readings out of wack.
