my setup for 13.5 open
pink front springs - try silver
45wt shock oil - perhaps try 40wt but id go no lower
camber 1.5deg - shuold be ok, but how is the tyre wearing ? across the face or just the inside half, if only inside half go to 2deg
0 deg toe - 0.5 toe out either side (1mm total overall)
droop 5 measured using associated plastic droop gauge
1.5 FF pivot block I normally run 2.0ff & Fr)
1.5mm spacers FF RR
shock position no 2 from inside - try 3 or even 4, seems wierd but actually induces more turn in due to pressure on the arm)
silver rear springs
40wt shock oil
camber 1.5deg - try 2.0deg
2 deg rear toe-in - try 2.5 or even 3
droop 4 measured using associated plasic droop gauge
1.5mm spacers (make the car just short of long wheelbase (put the small spacer behind the wishbone at the pivot block and the same on the rear hub)
shock position no 4 from inside
ball diff - Do you have a GearDiff at all ? If so build this with 55wt schumacher oil or a loose GD oil
sorex 32's - what trye prep and additive ?
usually racing on medium grip asphalt tracks in UK
See my changes above mate, give them a try and see which way it goes for you. PS less rear toe actually take rotation away.
