Default CS Parts T5 242 race car - anyone know more about it?

Looks like a bunch of fun, but it was the rear camber that got my attention. Anyone know more about this car?

I didn't see any shots from under the car. So there is surely something good going on under there. That looks like belgium with the .be in the url. Looks like it's a lot of fun.

I have seen casings of rear diffs tweaked to introduce camber along with machining of internals.

I wish I had it but don't.

Not easy but can be done.

Haven't seen that car before. That's not much tire/wheel width but it's pushed all the way out!

I have as well(maybe half a degree?), but whatever is going on with the car in the link above is definitely independent suspension. That's just too much negative camber to be a solid axle anymore, I'd think.

You can get 2-3deg of negative camber if using a full-floating rear end. Pretty common.

It's quite common practice in dutch/ belgian rallycross to 'bend' the axle tubes to get some camber. They also turn down the outside diameter of the axles/ half shafts (cant think of the correct word..) so they can 'twist' a bit more before they break.

The guys with enough cash just do it right and buy Sellholm stuff.

Is there "Sellholm stuff" not advertised on their website?

You have to go to sellholmshop.se, and then the drivetrain page:
http://www.sellholmshop.se/transmiss...drivaxlar.html

And then the floating axles:

It's hard to tell from the potato-quality picture and complete lack of descriptive text, but that just looks like a conventional floating axle. Unless there's some CV magic going on inside the hubs...

Or the hub end of the axle is either barrel splined or just loose on the splines.
I'm not sure if the Sellholm setup can be welded on for added camber, or what the range is.

Theres no CV magic on the sellholm stuff.

I think its just a floating axle conversion kit, which would allow the rear axles to take alot more load before going twisty twisty.

Theres no mention of it being for additional camber.

That’s Chris his car. He built it himself he has a breaking yard for modern volvo’s. I could ask him what he did with the rear axle. And indeed he is a Belgian.

It's not like anyone here is going to be offended if you were to do so, and perhaps share a few pictures that you took while he was showing you how cool it all was...
