It probably happend while you were still leaving it on. Well I've been thinking about switching to strapping tape so this just gives me more reason to.

QUESTION;

What's a good way to get rid off a little off-power-low-to-mid-speed steering without giving up any high speed steering?

Currently when coming into some of the tighter corners (from high speed sections) I have tons off steering and overall bite. Yet on some larger turns at very high speed I can really crank the wheel at not get a ton of steering. So, I would like to tame things down in these tight off power turns but I dont want to loose any high speed steering.

Suggestions?

Hard to say witout your full setup, but if I remember correctly; in general changing the camber(more negitive) will decrease the slow speed corner bite and add some high speed cornering. Try .5 to 1 deg and see if that helps.

With the cross brace it doesn't do that.

Yeah I used to run the cross brace but when I went to BL I didn't have enough room between the brace and the motor for the wires. I've since re-wired it flatter so I'm going to look at putting it back on if it will fit.

I really like the brace. It helps make it a little less pushy on carpet. On asphalt I don't run it because I don't like to drift around the corners.

I really couldn't feel a difference in handling on asphault using the brace or not. But I wanted to use it initially because of the o-ring.

What i would do is go to 6 degrees of castor. If it is still a little edgy then i would go to a little thicker side dampening and front dampening.

Will the shock rebuild kit from CRC fit for the IRS shock?

And another question - what size is the screw for the left wheel hub, the hex on my is a bit worn out.

Man got to run my car for the first time in... well too long. It was great to run 1/12 again. But I need a little help, I started with some older batts to get the feel of things again and the car was good but when I put in a good fresh set with lots of juice the car wanted to step out alot, This was on black ozite carpet and I've never run on that before so I'm looking for some suggestions. My setup now is:

Silver center spring
30wt in the shock
.24 BMI springs front
Surelube #6, very thick purple colored lube
Batts all the way back
Dlp pink all around
Servo is angled

The tires I cannot change as thats all I have, same with the servo as I dont have the parts needed to lay it flat. So I'm thinking of moving the batts forward and mabey changing the spring/oil wt. Any thoughts?
