Any ideas, maybe decreasing camber (adding washer) so that inside tire will slip more?
on the CX....
the first day..the car would generate way too much grip..then ass out..mid turn.
ending up taking the sway bars off...i let the car roll more...
changed to HPI pinks in the front...Schui Whites in the rear.
Front shocks = 2nd hole from outside
rear shocks = middle or 2nd inner hold
shock oil = 42.5 f / 35 r
camber = 1.25 front / 2-2.25 rear (Solaris Med)
camber link plates...1mil shim under plate (not under ball).
front pivot blocks = standard
rear pivot blocks = alloy...slammed them all the way down.
rear arm shimmed = inner rear = 1mm / outer rear = 3mm...approx.
i found after a day of testing..
moving the arms rearward made a big difference. Car did not snap on entry or mid turn, felt very planted.
basically i took a day as a setup day..to play around with different stuff, to see where the car felt best.
Try everything you think...but 1 thing at a time.
too many changes at once and mayhem will occur.
ohh...don't forget to check dual rate...CX turns very aggressive...you have to dial out a lot of steering on the radio. I am 82% throw then dialed dual rate down to 61%.
