Hi All

I have been messing around with a friends car, it is unbelievably stable, but i am having trouble getting enough off power steering, this is indoors rubbers on asphalt.

Can someone offer some advise?
What adjustment will make it have a shite load of steering, started off with kit setup and have been changing a ton of things since.

Try putting a shim under the inner blocks of the rear hinge pin, this will give you a bunch more entry steering.

I was looking at that, i have mostly been running the hinge pins in the low position (ie close to chassis) but tried them in the upper position last week, and the car felt a bit more lively, i was going to try and run the front in the low position and the rears high next week.

On setups the Roll Centre shows as high, does this mean the pins are in the top or bottom location?

When the sheet is marked high that means the pins are high.

What do I need to do or what parts do I need to get to run 2 deg of rear toe? It seems the stock rear toe block is 2 deg, but the rear hubs are 1 deg offset, right? My Type R seems to have more than 2 deg, with the kit parts, so for 10.5BL on asphalt I'd like to try 2 deg or 2.5 rear toe...anyone know the parts needed to get this?

Thx

Yohan

You have a PRS spur gear adaptor in the stuff I sent with the car.

The chassis has 1 deg built in and the kit rear toe in block is 2deg, so built per the kit you get 3 deg toe in. To get 2 deg you need to run the 1 deg rear block.
