Randy, question:

Running saturday, in the slow twisty stuff it seemed like it pushed a bit on entry, and the middle of the corner. Anything you see in the setup blatantly wrong? The track is small, and very high bite (indoor) asphalt. Droop is travel over ride height. I was thinking maybe a D block in the rear, and put some camber gain back in (3.5 or 3mm)?

I'm not Randy but here's my two cents:

I would try running white springs up front, and/or remove the .5mm shims from the wheels. I would probably switch to the D block in the rear either way.

I had whites on it, but it felt better w/ blues, the softer springs had a little more front traction in the slow corners. I also have the screw taken out of the brace on for the steering rack in the top plate for more front flex. I thought about narrowing the car too, but never got to try it

Something else to try, rather than a D on the back, is try an X on the front. Same amount of Toe, but makes the car a bit wider. Narrowing the car at the (I found) makes the car push more mid to exit, as it give more rear grip (and more reaction).
Elliott Harper was testing the same thing this weekend, and came to the same conclusion

I've tried a few different servo savers on there so I m going to rule out the servo saver.

Please please please let it be a faulty front one way...

someone who has a good basic setup for a 416X car? I am thinking of those accessories that come with the car out of the box

I can't imagine needing blues and the screw removed on high grip carpet. Last time I ran on carpet with whites up front and the screw in the steering my car was oversteering like mad until I lowered the rear roll centers (AND raised the front roll center).

Its not carpet, its asphalt.

Sorry, I'm not sure why I assumed it was carpet. In any case, I still run whites on med/high grip asphalt. But I can see instances where you'd use blues on asphalt.

Nope, running 1X/1E. Same toe in as 1XA/1D, but moves the pin position out a little, and makes the rear a little wider with the same axle shims.

That could make it push more, lowering the rear roll center will increase the rear traction.
