iRacing Big Block Modified Setup Speed Tips
Use this guide to get more speed out of your iRacing Big Block or 358 Modified setup.
Keep your rear ride heights about one inch higher than your front ride heights. (Right rear one inch higher than right front, left rear one inch higher than left front.)
Keep your left side ride heights even with or higher than your right side ride heights.
Keep left rear bite/cross weight as high as possible.
Keep deck height as high as possible.
Bumpy Track Adjustments
For a rough, bumpy track, try these adjustments.
Stiffer springs, especially right front and left rear.
Set both ends of your J-Bar at 12 inches.
If you adjust spring rates, use the spring perch offsets to reset the ride heights to their original values.
After making any adjustments, make sure your ride heights and left rear bite/cross weight are where you want them to be. Remember, wheel spacing adjustments can have a drastic effect on those values.
To increase left rear bite/cross weight, increase left front and right rear spring perch offsets, and decrease right front and left rear spring perch offsets. If you do it evenly (same number of clicks on all four), your ride heights will stay about the same. Do the opposite to decrease left rear bite/cross weight.
