Donít forget that you may be experiencing what seems to be low rear grip due to high front traction/steering. Maybe you should take out the spaces from under the rear of the front pivot blocks as well since that is going to make the front much more reactive than if it was to lay flat. Check out PW's last setup. Itís a 'flat' setup which is a much more stable setup in low grip situations. I dont know what the droop settings are by default in the EC setup (since i havent built mines yet :-() but maybe try some more up travel in the front less in the back.

JEDI

PS. if you could fill out a setup sheet and post it, that could help us make some recommendations as well.

Bob,
It would help to know if the back end is loose on the way in or the way out of the corners.

well its just lose most of the time under power, then let off power a bit into corner and it all gets a bit twitche then have to b realy gental putin power bk on or your sliding (that sounds worst that what it is but u get the pitcher hard to explain) think if i get rid of some front grip it would b beter.

oh yeah im runing traction control on the handset

Try moving your rear camber link up to the top.

Stlnlst,

I've always been around, but I've just been trying to fly below the radar. Work issues are finally clearing up giving me more time to do my job which is also giving me more time to play with my toys... Is it possible for a nobody to make a comeback?

Yeah what john said. Everything else looks pretty standard. However i noticed you dont run aditive either!?!?! Is that because of the surface? I'm not familiar with the surface so.... Did you check for outside influences? Tweak, faulty tires (check the glue), Diff (is it slipping?)...etc...

have u tryed loosening your diff off 1/8th of a turn or put a diff in the front. A spool tends to give a lot of on power steering

Bob,
a front diff would certainly make the car easier to drive on power, Mi2 diff will fit you might have to adjust the spacing on the pulley though to get the front belt to run straight.
