Share your setup and everyone on here can help.

Let us know if you are pushing going into, middle, or out of the corner. Depending on where the car is pushing will help figure out which end of the car to make changes to.

Woops...my bad...just noticed that Sean, thank you. I'm not about to make any drastic changes at this point anyway. As far as the change from one way back to diff., I still like my diff better on rubber / carpet, but then again I'm pretty damn green compared to pro's like you!..

I'm using the setup that Brandon posted in this thread post #4274 on page 143.
I'm pushing going into the corner. I have to slow down A LOT to be able to make the turn. Middle and out of the corner has plenty of steering and i can accel out pretty easily. If i could go into the corner faster i think i can lower my times.

My fault, I will have to go search for that and let you know but I am sure others will chime in to help.

I'm not far from that setup now except I went back to diff, and have stock chassis. I had similar push issues also. First the front camber at 1.5 is an error. It's suppose to be -1.5 (I PMed and asked). You might go with a little - front toe...thats listed at +.5, plus I added a bit more rear droop, and thats all mine needed.

Are you running the 6 deg. castors also?? I'm running 4.

Here is a shortcut to his setup for others to help.

More rear droop travel (like from 5 to 6)- you'll get more transfer to the front

Kick up in the front- more weight transfer off power, and additional caster into the front end.

IMO, TC5 seems easy oversteering than understeering with 5cell.

I forgot to add that I'm only running the ITF deck but not the chassis. Yes I'm running 6* castor blocks but I will try and add a bit more droop as you guys suggested. Thanks for the help!

I'm not sure what Mathias ran but my setup was 100% same as the LRP race setup.

I just went back to look at that post to see which one it was. Based on just what you have described, try the 2 deg castor blocks and that should be real close to what you are wanting.

As far as the droop, you may not be able to run anymore droop, I think at that setting the spring was just barely touching the preload collar. You don't want the arm to droop far enough that there's a gap bewteen spring and collar.

Tony6187- Changing the diff height can change the way your car handle drasticaly. Moving both at the same time let say from middle high to middle low won't be as big of a change compared to moving one at a time. having a front diff higher than a rear diff will give your car more steering and vice versa.

I never run my diff higher than mid high. I like to run my diff low as it usualy makes my car easier to drive.

It's posted on the previous page. I ran the same car in 19T and mod without any changes. Bob Stellflue also ran almost the same setup in stock.
