You may want to try heavier shock oil because with light shock oil + harder spring, the car will bounce too fast. The stock springs are alright and advise that setup to be done from there. Change the springs accordingly, should everything else failed.
Shock oil will remove some sensitivity from the steering action.
My current setup is:
40wt Trinity Shock Oil
Sorex 40R (on all 4)
Ackermann on step 1
Front Shock mounting (on shock tower) on the 1st hole from centre of car
Rear Shock mounting (on shock tower) on the 4th hole from centre of car
Stiffest Flex (all screws on)
7.5R Novak BL/Orion 3600 Lipo
My current setup has quite sensitive steering response and understeers a little. I'm going to do EITHER the 2-hole piston on the front or changing the front shock oil to 50wt, as my 08 is rolling too much, though it's pretty good for chicanes and technical track. Just never get enough time to do those changes.
If you really don't need so much steering and don't have the time to do setups and such, then try this: installing the Hudy Aluminum Front Chassis Brace. It will make the car understeer and easier to drive.
I have tried that Front Brace on my 08 and didn't like the understeer, but it sure is easier to drive!
Hope it helps!
P/S: I'm selling the brace to someone who needs it more. It's only used for less than 2 minutes on my '08, please make offer through PM. Thanks!
