About a hundred or so pages ago, I posted a problem I was having with my 1/12 scale car, 12L3 on a asphalt track (SoCal).
Problem consisted of the car entering the turn well, but as it transisitions to the last third of the turn, it develops an substantial increase in oversteer, to the point that it snaps around. This occurs about the time you would begin to ease-off the steering to square the car up for the straight.
I somewhat corrected this thinking it was a diff problem, and running a very tight diff. Sometimes the car is good (matched Kinwalds mod sedan times for ten or so laps), and sometimes it does not correct it and I have to drive with a very light hand.
As of late, I have wondered if it was not the diff, but actually a pod/damper problem. I run a teflon disc on the damper with no oil or fluid.
My question to the 1/12 community is this: Does this problem sound like something you guys have run into or is this just the nature of this type of car?
I thought the oil would free up the damper, which sounded bad to me, but now I wonder if it actually increases the dampening?
Can anyone enlighten me on this?
.075 "T-bar".....3mm ride height, .1mm toe-out (went .1mm incraments from 1mm toe-in to 1mm toe-out, .1 mm out seems most consistant) 1.75 to 2.125 camber dependent on wear.
Current tires are pink front/white rear. I have run and prefer purple/grey, but the pink/white thing works well.
Car is sound and tight with nothing binding.
4cell, usually a 7x1 or 8x1. There is virtually no 1/12 scale class here, so hard to find someone with answers.....
