Check out some of the setup sheets on Associated's site. No guarantee that any one driver's setup will work for you but you may see some trends based on the types of tracks they are driving on. Secondly, have you checked what the locals are doing? It may simply be the wrong tire or wrong tire prep for that track. The reason I say this is I've tried a number of setups on my TC6 and none of them had problems with a push.

Good luck.

Some guys are running blue/green here to keep the car a bit flatter, with about 2mm uptravel/droop all around. Gold/silver is a pretty stiff combination......

My friend has a "point and shoot" driving style, and he is typically as fast as me. He always makes a ton of grip on low bite (where as I'm usually faster on high bite). This is because all of his high-speed driving is in a straight line. I think he's running 1B/0B front, 1B/1B rear with 14.5/13.5 springs...... he likes a spool up front. Might be worth a shot......
Were the trinity pinions 48 or 64 pitch, or both. Also, where did you purchase them?

64-pitch..... the LHS stocks them

If you can't get them locally, you can order straight from Trinity's site. I haven't checked other sites yet. OR talk to EAMotorsports...... he typically has Trinity stuff on him, or can get it in for you.

Even if you don't use or aren't allowed a tire prep, it would help a lot to at least clean the tires every run.

Try to run your roll centers lower than 2b (assuming you have 7 front and 3A Rear on camber position), try 0b all around or 0b Front and 1b Rear. Hope this helps.

I would also try 2* rear camber, maybe go down to 1* front with 4* caster blocks......

I've had luck with 3A front/0B rear mounts on low grip, also.

if you go for a mod car, Tekin RSpro is top, but I would consider the new to be released Hobbywing V3 or Novak Kinetic.

regarding your setup, if the track has a long straight or is fast, run 1 degree of toe out on front,
