Front Torsion Bar
Today I messed a setup for sons race. He runs senior Tag Restricted Class.
Lately we have been running with the round torsion bar in front on dry tracks with good results.
Today it rained heavily and he normally drives excellent in the wet. I made all the necessary changes but this time I stayed with the round torsion bar. Normally it would have been flat horizontal bar. Note we always ran with a flat horizontal bar and never changed.
Reason toward round bar lately was for front grip.
So with that in mind I thought I would keep it in for the wet.
It failed miserably and made the kart hard to handle and hard to turn in. It made the rear very unstable.
Can someone explain why?
If the round bar gives grip then why wouldn’t you want that in the wet?
