Jumping didn't change for me with arm changes.

Maybe your landing issue is with the arms rubbing the chassis. I had to clean them up a little on the front inside so they would clear the chassis

Yeah, mine doesn't bind at all. Arms move freely from full compression to full rebound without the dampers attached. Maybe running too much anti-squat?

Looking over Cav's Nats setup at Space Coast, he has -1mm marked for steering stop spacing. Anyone know if material is removed from the caster block or the steering block?

The steering block is shaved down 1mm.

Mine jumps and lands just fine with RM arms on jumps that have a take off and a landing. most all the clay indoor tracks in my area have 1 or 2 sections where there is either a big table top with a roller following it or big triple like 25ft with a rounded landing and a single after it and the fast line is a hard flat landing, thats when the car will land hard and bounce. thats where the stock arms are better significantly

Our current layabout has a jump that's long distance without much height and it's a flat landing. I didn't notice much landing difference but I run kyosho shocks. I just like the way they bleed better.

If you could please let me hear your side and your findings to justify your set-up issue comment.
Not sure why you took such an offense to what I said. PFKAOG is a lot worse when it comes to "smart A$$" remarks. I'm pretty sure I've given plenty of advice and helpful links in the past.

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.

Not everyone is having the same issue you do. That makes me believe there is something else that could be looked at (could be a number of things).

FWIW, I have had no issues when I changed to the RM rear arms. The handling in the turns are different, but the jumping and landing has been fine.

JuiHaWong: I didnt take offense but to just say its a shock issue without having much information is kinda strange to me. I am not the only one that has noticed this. Gillespie, Yonker, Denney all FAST mod drivers have noticed the same issue. It may not be an issue in stock, But for faster mod drivers it is definately noticeable.

I ordered the Avid Triad Slipper setup for mine yesterday, on my test n tune day last Saturday the stock slipper just felt very inconsistent. I also order the AE aluminum transmission topshaft.
