I am running touring car stock. I am also using the V2 Stratus. I have run mostly dirt oval so getting the car to turn left isn't too bad, both ways is more difficult.
I tried my car in warm ups and it was loose when I had no suce so I went back to putting it on the inner half of my fronts and full rear. I didn't have trouble till after I raised the ride height when I found out there was a 5mm minimum. I didn't think a .5mm would make so much difference. I also didn't have time to get the car back on the tweak board.
When I stiffen the suspension. Would you do it incrementaly around the car, ie go up a spring rate front and rear?
Would a sway bar not help with body roll by limiting how much the arms move?
a stock roll bar for stock rubber would be a good next change to the car. it stops the the front end from having to much roll in the corner, there by keeps the car more planted/level in the corner and keeps up corner speed and doesnt make the car push out(mid corner and exit).. if u do spring rates, going up a rate in the front and rear keeping the front balanced and the rear balanced spring wise is something else to play with(what springs are you running?). also try different pistons and shock oils. for rubber i normaly ran #2 pistons and 40 weight AE oil all around on a med grip carpet track or a 40F-35R to get some more rear traction, all depends on the track condition.
if this doesnt make sense pm me and ill give u my rubber starting setup for a dual diff car on carpet.
