Ok if you are running on fairly abrasive pavement with medium traction, will running a front diff over the spool help with front tire wear?
If Yes how thick of oil in the front diff?

I am running front diff as well with 500K weight oil.
So, the tire wear is normal. right?
And because my local track is bumpy medium grip open asphalt with 4 continue sharp 180 degree corners, I still feel my car is somewhat lazy in steering.
any suggestion for the setting?
Droop? ride height? or something.

maybe try dropping the front a mm? That should bias more weight forward.

It may seem like a stupid question but what body and is it mounted forward or back and how much rear wing.The body can change the way the steering feels! I put a Mazda Speed and the car is junk on my track a LTCR body gives the car so much more front grip it is unreal!

More droop(less down travel) means more grip at that end. Is that right?
I will give it a try.

The more down travel you have the more weight transfer you get to the opposite end of the car. Example more front down travel means you get more weight transfer to the rear ON POWER so you will have more rear grip under power.

Basically:

More front down travel = less on power steering
More rear down travel = more off power steering

I was talking about ride height, droop is a whole nother ball game.

This is more of a general sedan question, but hopefully someone here can help.

The TC6 is pretty dialed, but i feel like it's scrubbing a lot of speed in the fast sweepers. I can hear the front tires skipping out under these types of conditions, and it feels as if the car isn't generating enough forward speed as a result.

Are there any adjustments I can make to maintain more speed in the long high speed turns to gain more lateral grip and avoid scrubbing speed? I've tried raising the roll center slightly, but it doesn't seem to improve overall lap times much.

Thanks!

Maybe try softer springs or lay the top of the shocks down.

Thanks for the suggestion. Sorry, i should have mentioned I tried that too. Maybe I didn't go soft enough?

If it's scrubbing under power, maybe try some anti squat or less droop.
