It's a business and Haynes is good for sales. I understand where you are coming from but those of us who arent masters of driving or setup we need a person to help with setup. I'll take a person who knows the car in and out over a few spares.

I think he was referring to a lack of spares being available for the general public to buy, not looking to score freebies ..........

Also, that sponsoring Mike Haynes would help in saving money ( to make the parts we all need available ) , by not dumping a heap of money to bring Hara and the others out to the U.S.......

This is how I read it anyway ?!

Any ideas on keeping the rear from stepping out on rubber asphalt?

I am running the kit setup with both front and rear shocks mounted three holes from middle of shock tower, silver sway bar front and copper at rear.

I removed the rear sway bar which help a little and was also told to remove more droop (to have very little) which did not really help much, actually made it slightly worse!

Am running Sorex 36's.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Mr Lee, you need to post your entire current setup, if anyone is going to be able to give you pointers.

In Italy we always use controlled tires Sorex 36 indoor and outdoor, this basic setup works very well, a lot of grip and easy to drive, it works well also with gear diff.

I just thought it would be easier for the HB Team Drivers to look at your setup details here on the forum, instead of referring back to the manual.

Here's Ty's setup from Paved Nationals you can use as a reference.

Exiting a corner! I really have to back off and wait for the car to run straight before I can apply power otherwise it just slides/spins out.....
My diff is really smoothe and has a very slight amount of slip. Have heard that a tight diff could cause these problems I am having but I don't think it can be the problem here!

Oh am also running an LTCR.

Thanks for the setup sheet San. I did look at that when setting mine up but just decided to go with the shock tower mount settings and leave the rest as standard hence I mentioned that above.

Try adding more toe to the rear. You can also go to a 1.5mm or 1mm shim under the inside rear camber links ie: drop them. Lastly you can reduce your roll center by dropping you rear lower arms. Instead of a 1.5mm shim try a 1mm.

HTH,

Thanks very much for the suggestion mojoman! I see that on Ty's setup sheet he also has the 1,5mm shims.


In technical terms how does dropping the inside rear camber link height effect the rear from breaking away?


BTW I am already running the kit 3 degree rear toe block.
