You have no idea man. I am so happy now that we bought our first house. Yeah it sucks being broke, but I don't have to fight for a parking spot anymore, Listen to somebodies loud music, the neighbors fighting, I could go on and on. I do kinda miss the neighbor fighting thing though. It was always cheap entertainment.

Default steering

Has anyone tried all the different steering center mounts. from the wide to the short..any info.Im having a little problem getting the kind of steering i want out of the car.It pushes all the way to the middle then soon as power is applied it gets loose.I started with randys setup then went to 2 deg blocks and a few other things and it didnt seem to help.

better get it under control in time for Sunday. We gotta win every class we sign up for. Mod and 19 turn are taken care of but we need another ringer in stock. Harsh may need some help.

Dont know about the other steering mounts, I never tried them. If my car were like that I might try standing up your front shocks, leaning in rear shocks, lighter oil all the way around, thinner rear bar, lowering outer rear camber link, or more front droop.

I tried the front shocks all the way out and rears all the way down with no swaybar in front.also tried kickup and pro squat.I will put on pws setup for some practice.Iam maxed out on dual rate also i would like to be able to dial some in or out if i need to.

sounds like i did a similar set up with my mi2 not to long ago no steering but setting all aimed at more steering?
might be to over gripped in the front causing to much weight transfer to front their for over loading the tires
maybe try going the other way get some more rear weight transfer ie stiffer front. this happended to me and a mate told me just try this and it worked car was better.

Running to much dual rate can make the rear end loose on exit...sounds to me like what steering you do have is coming from the front of the car....If the duel rate is at 100% try running it at 65-70% and freeing up the rear to get more rotation.

Aaron the setup I have posted on the page back works great for me running stock. For outdoors I go one softer front sway bar, spool and go with 2 to 2.5 front droop. In the rear change to 2 degree toe and I start out with 1.5 of camber on the rear. I set my left to right throw on my steering so that the wheels don't chatter with the spool. It ends up being around 60% each side. And I run around 70% dual rate. If you get a chance try the setup.

If anyone is looking for a car I have my car and parts up for sale in the for sale forum.


Aaron....have you tried more castor and making the rear link longer like the outside on the hub and lower the inside ball stud more. MY car did the same thing and this was one of the changes that I made and it helped.....this was on carpet with rubber tires.
