View Full Version : CR-32V Question

I have a 2002 CR32-V converted to 100cc (10 degree spindles, no front wheel brakes) and I was wondering what the front end specs (camber & caster) are. Currently, with the 0 degree pills I have 6mm negitive (about .5 degree) camber. I have a full set of .5 and 1.5 degree pills to move the setting where ever I need to. Also I have access to a table to straighten anything if needed.

2nd question: I am thinking of running TaG next year with either the CR-32V or replacing it with an R-32SP. I also have an R932 I am running in Masters with great success.

Thanks, Mike

The race team is out on the road and I'll have to wait for their return to give you the answer. garry

Thanks for the reply. I will wait for the answer. I know the R932 has 1/2 degree positive camber with the zero pills. I'm curious what the specs are for CR32V.

Hey Mike,
I normally run 0 - 6mm negative. The karts come standard at around 2-3mm negative. The extra 2mm negative that you have shouldn't be a problem as long as the track has some natural grip and both wheels are tipped in equally. However, if you are experiencing a bit of a push, you can stand the front wheels back up, or simply wind some castor in. I hope I answered your questions. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.
regards,

Chris, thanks for the info.

I was curious because I never checked the kart out of box. I was surprized when I did check it that it had that much negitive since the R932 has 2mm positive. I have been putting in 1.5 degree pills to remove caster and rotating the pills to get 0 camber for a starting point. However, I think it was faster when there was 4mm negitive in the front end.

I have used the kart for Yamaha Masters and Yamaha Heavy. (It's a better Yamaha Heavy kart). I have given up running pipe and I am thinking of running the CR32V in TaG/TaG Masters or possibly replacing the chassis over the winter with a R32SP.
