Axle Tramp


Took the beast for a 250 klm blast out the back of nowhere today and did some good stretches of high to extremely high speed cruising. The Batten thermostat kept the temp constantly just under the quarter mark and there is definately better mid range and high speed acceleration responsiveness.
Anyway I pulled up for some standing starts through the gears, and dropped the clutch a couple of times (not an often done thing) nothing but wheel spin and a hell of a lot of axle tramp Has anyone found a cure for this yet. I know in the xw xy GT series you could get tramp rods, but I can't see how they would work with control blade suspension. Any Ideas?

Re: Axle Tramp

Doc it would be good for some-one to cure this problem.I would say some better suspension set-up would be the key.I wonder if the DJR 320 has this problem as the suspension set-up is suppose to be much better than the GT.I have lowered mine with different springs done by HERRODS but it still does axle tramp.
Cheers Alex.

Re: Axle Tramp

hi John, the rear of the car hops and bounces badly up and down like mad ...more common in a manual car when dropping the clutch the car is making plenty of power...
watch those CV joints Doc..
