Wes, use Hara's setup for starters... I would say our track is not low bite anymore since it is covered most of the time. Traction is increasing.

Also thanks rccartips for confirming this.
for more steering, move the spacers that are on the front suspension arms to the front of the car. that shortens the wheelbase, puts more weight on the nose, and greatly increases the steering. some people dont like it, gives
way to much steering.......
