I am running RM flat front arms, front tower and rear arms. My car is lacking in steering, pushes pretty good going into a corner and pushes trying to power through a sweeper so I need to sort that out.

No issues with traction, no issues with jumping.
Try a longer rear link. I ran plaster hubs with the three hole insert down and ended up in the middle hole. 2mm spacer on the inner ball stud. That freed the car up. Not sure where u are but that's what I found.

You running indoors Jason? I've found via other setups (i.e. EB48) that your styles are similar so would be interested in what you've come up with for this one. Just picked up a used one.

IMO the only time I would run RM rear arms is if the track I was on was very loose.

Just a lil food for thought!
With my setup I don't have any problems landing or squaring up for a jump with the RM rear arms. The car is quite stable on landings even when I miss the downside. I started with box stock setup and worked my way to my current setup. The first two things I did in changes was to go white springs F/R and RM rear arms, I picked up stability and dropped some time. Next was changing shock oil and flat front setup and picked up steering and dropped .3sec lap average. Changed pistons and oil again to drop another .2 sec average. This was all after dropping 1.5 sec lap average with a tire change. In all from the stock setup running barcodes (V2) i dropped over 2 sec/lap average from my races. I'm quite happy with my setup. Sure, I could do with a little more steering but I don't want to sacrifice my stability until I get better. I went from DFL (2-3 laps down) to 4th or 5th and on the same lap as the leaders.

Nothing but titanium turnbuckles. My SMC shorty pack is pretty lite, that might be helping.

Sounds like a "Skeeter" issue.

That is correct. Im running indoors with medium bite. My car has been really good. I like a lot of steering but I need to keep the rear planted. I found a setup that is glued and aggressive. I drive it like a 1/12th pan car. Being that I am new with this car, I ran the J Concepts Super Cup race here in FL 2 weeks ago and ran in the Independent stock class. I got 2 packs of practice before racing. I TQ'ed both rounds. There was 243 entries and my main wasn't until 10:00 in the evening. I have a hard time seeing when its dark and under the lights. I made a few mistakes but still finished 2nd. The car was really good.

You always chime in with smart A$$ remarks but never offer any advice. I'd sure love for you to tell me and some of the fastest AE drivers why this is a set-up issue. With the arm swept 2mm further forward it creates a binding effect on hard flat landings and makes the car bounce rather than settle.

If you could please let me hear your side and your findings to justify your set-up issue comment.

I just put RM rear arms on mine and it jumps like a dream just has a lil more rear grip... IDK why yours jumps weird. Maybe a shock issue?

Mine jumps good too with RM rear arms, doubles triples, no problems. Mine lands nice, smooth and straight. I'm running indoors, medium bite.
