so, this would make the car more aggresive and will have more overall steering?

Yes this would make it more aggresive and help turn in.I have found that less ackerman while running a spool is more consistent and easier to drive.Without diff action the outside tire tends to scrub alot of speed and can make the car hard to drive in and out of the corner.
Try this,
I have been running my car with a low roll/2R block in the front.This takes all of the arm sweep out of the front end and almost puts the hinge pin straight.

Move the bellcranks to the foward hole,but not flipped.You will end up with a 15-20 degree angle on the tie rods pointing foward.

Space the front arms .030 foward from all the way back.Using the 2R block will lenghten the wheel base that is why you need to move the arms that far back.This will give you about the same overall wheel base as having the arms centered.

AE hexs-when you take the arm sweep out of the car(using the 2R block)it will narrow the track width.you will need to make the front end wider.

This is the way I have been running my car the past few weeks on carpet w/foams.This works really well with a tight front diff or spool.

good luck

I passed it along to a few folks at the Hitec race and they felt pretty good about it.

With Sorexs, the setup really hooks up well for standard parking lot races.
I took a close look at this setup today. It looks very similar to what I have on the car right now except the springs, the diff instead of a spool and a couple angles. I think I'll try that this weekend. I got the Speedtech SSG towers on the car last night. They look awesome! I'll put up some pics after I get the car set up and back together tonight.

Thanks Randy. There's a big Race up in Corona in November. You should sign up. I think a lot of the local San Diego guys are going to be there. Here's a link the site where you can check them out.
Team Titus Racing Mark and I are signing up for 19 turn and Modified. They're getting the new Quad mag Reedy 19 turn as handouts.

Yeah. Mark and I ususally pit together and can fit under one so if both of us bring EZups there should be plenty of room for one more.
