Ill handling TC3
the problem I am having is the car has great turn in (equal left and right) but at the apex or just before I am losing the backend and it is literally snapping around and squaring off the corner (almost like an off road buggy or truck takes a 180 in very loose dirt). The car just kinda pivots around the front diff case. heres how its set up ....
2* kick up
4* castor blocks
Losi steering knuckles
4 mm ride height
step 6 on Assc droop gauge
60 wt oil #2 piston
middle hole on rear tower mounted up front
std ackerman, no bump steer washers
camber link in and down
0* anti squat
2* toe in
4mm ride height
step 6 on assc droop gauge
50 wt oil #2 piston
middle hole on tower
in and down to upper for the camber link
batteries ... tried forward and backward back seemed a little better
carbon fiber chassis kit
Jaco plaids in FRT and Purples in rear turned to about 2.27in (paragon used every run inner 1/2 on front and whole rear)
Trinity Monster Stock geared 36/96
track is on newer Ozite (rubber backed) 60x36 or 40 usually one long straight with a sweeper on and off, then tight and technical the rest of the way around.
any help would be appreciated ... the rear shock mount on the front idea came from a post I saw from Walt Henderson who said it was a good idea for high grip Ozite. This is my first season running on the carpet and I am a little lost. Much Thanks in advance.
Also I forgot to mention that i have checked for cracked or stressed arms , mounts, hubs, bent hinge pins, equal shock lengths, shock leaks, air in the shocks, worn bearings, binds, rough spots in the drive line and have come up with nothing. Again much Thanks in advance.
