if you want it more reactive try 2.8/2.6 or 3.0/2.6 springs or hpi silver/silver
what you ran droop / swaybar/ shockoil / setupwise?
Thanks, from my feeling the springs both on and off the car the 2.8 and 2.4 feel to be softer than the pink/blue in comparison. It may be just my feel but that is what it feels like.
My car has all the camber link positions of your latest carpet setup with the #8 rack. The droop is 2mm over ride height which is 5mm. We measure droop by using a ride height gauge when we make the a-arm go to full droop.
The swaybar is 1.4 up front and none in the rear. It seems most chassis' at my track are not running rear bars. I was also going to try a 1.3 bar up front to see what that does.
I will try the 2.6 springs in the rear but it seems to me that the stiffer rear springs will make the rear of the car roll less and possibly reduce overall steering.
In case I didn't mention is we are running 17.5 with the new tekin 2.03 software. It makes the 17.5's run like 13.5's even better, so we are running closer to non spec speeds.
This is a link to the "a" main at this track. I don't want to advertise who I was in the event because I caused some crashes(lol).
