i'm still not believing it....
plopped quite a bit of change to get a new car ready for this season...and bammmm...

I will say...3 packs thru it....and it's absolutely the best car i've driven...
any little change made to it..and it responds..no null effect with the Schui...

for those lucky to get a Schui on carpet foam/rubber...it's going to be the bomb.

on the bright side...i don't have to smell Paragon for the next 8 months... :P

You're really going to the extremes there on both ends. I never ran the blocks that low in the front but I don't think you can do it because the arms will rub on the chassis. You shouldn't need to go that far. Same in the rear. You shouldn't need to go that far with the roll centers. At the most, go to only 1mm under the front blocks.

Try using pin angle to get the steering you want like I suggested.

That's carpet though. He's running asphalt. You shouldn't need to go that far on rubber tires.

I still think you need to just put the front roll center to 2mm (riser plate only) and 3mm (riser plate + 1mm) in the rear. 30wt in the front and 35wt in the rear and white springs all around. Where is your front inner camber link location? If you have no risers under the diffs, (which if you still have those in, you should take those out) you should have drilled a hole 2mm above the high hole in the tower, or used the carpet tower. Then use pin angles (kick up, anti-squat, etc...) to work on getting more steering. Don't use both kick up and anti squat though. One or the other. How much droop are you running? That can have a lot to do with getting steering into the car. Where is the car pushing. Going into the corner, mid corner, or coming out? Or everywhere?

yep done all that my camber lings are in the high position on the standard towers. 30 wt all round
running bout 5mm droop rear and 3mm front.
oh i removed all diff risers.
and its mainly when im at neautral throttle now before it was when i was on power and neutral now its only neutral.
ill try 35wt rear oil and some anti-squat or kick up which is more effective for what?
finnally ill drill holes 2mm up, is that 2mm centre to centre or from the edge of the top whole?
cheers its much much better just seeing how far i can go before the rear end gets loose.

You drill the hole only if you're using the standard asphalt towers. You drill it 2mm center to center. All you're doing is compensating for when you take out the 2mm diff riser plate that brings the whole front end down. I would try kick up first. It tends to give more mid corner steering and make it rotate more in the middle of the corner. Also, where do you have your wheelbase settings?
