1A lowest hinge pin setting
2A
3A
1B
2B
3B highest hinge pin setting

Going from 3A to 2A is LOWERING the roll center. The car will not roll as quickly, the car should not want to break away front or rear as much. Should be more grip.

Diff height can be set independently through the cams A and B

Also what would be the difference in terms of feel when you go from 3A to 2A?

do you guys think removing my rear swaybar would help with the looseness caused by my one way?

Rubber? Foam? whats loose, front or rear?

I did some testing with swaybars this weekend (Rubber, med/low grip asphalt)and a rear swaybar calmed the rear end down and created a corner entry push but helped settle the car down with on power exit.

Just some notes from my setup, could be different for others.

I getting 1-2* more camber in the right rear corner than the left rear I've checked the turnbuckle lengths, bulkhead flatness, chassis flatness, shock collars, droop, hingepins, pretty much everything i can think of and still no good

Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a quick question for you guys. I just picked up a TC5 to run on indoor asphalt this summer.

Are there any "must have" parts or mods that I need to buy or perform to get the most out of this car? I intend to read through this thread as time permits, but I'd like the answer to this question before I start working on the car.

Thanks

By chance do you have the ball stud in the wrong hole on that side or maybe the shim under it is slightly larger??
