What is your setup and on what surface are you driving?

On my car I took a bit of toe out of the rear (only have a 2mm shim now), and I shortened up the wheelbase in the front, and that really helped the car rotate. Oh, and since theyre running blues for that race, you may need to take the swaybars off your car, since most likely youll be searching for a bit of overall grip. Hope that helps.
cool mike thanx. i got the whole kit wth the super flexy topdeck so maybe i will run it since the jacos are horrible

Very close to Howart's bangkok setup on asphault sprayed with soda 140* temp...Ive tried fast setups at my track and it just pushes no matter what I do...tight track with front diff is the difference from howarts

Front diff is probably the biggest problem. Put a spool in it.

I have tried it and it does not work for our track, 60+ racers and 2 guys use them...Is it possible that a car that is too light would handle poor? I am running brushed, small GTX ESC, and small 3200 orion LiPos...getting to the bottom of the barrel now...

Joe, after the first qual, everyone had push. Then you started making changes, as the track started coming in.

Like we talked about saturday, learning to drive the car in different conditions with the same setup is better then making huge changes as the track conditions change. Friday night was hard on everyone.

Also, what tires were you running. I had great results with sorex 32r's

Im stumped, my car turns more aggresively to one side. If I turn all the way to one side it will kinda push, not loop out, if I turn all the way to the other side my car will just loop out. I used setup station to get my epa exactly the same, full throw basically. I checked all the bearings, shocks, hinge pins, swaybars, rear toe is identical. my car is balanced side to side. Everything is free. I dont get it. Is it just the diffs? Is this normal? I run a bl 17.5, anyone any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Come on you telling me you don't like those tires!!!!!!!!!!! The newer tires with the new insert I will say had much better wear than the tires with the older insert in them. The Jaco tires for me just don't seem to produce the overall grip vs some other tires I have ran in the past.
