You can use my setup on petit as we also run on a soda prepped parking lot.
I have been quite happy with the setup and usually make minor changes depending on the traction for a given day.

You could try a variety of things including thicker rear diff oil and lower roll centers in the rear. You could also try less camber gain, you could also try less rear toe. These qould be somethings I would try. It also depends what class you race as to where the problem is.

Anti squat will give you more steering when accelerating. Not too sure what you mean by "rear steering".
You can do things to the rear that will enhance steering like toe, diff stiffness, shocks, springs, roll center, anti squat, etc.

Hey guys I just got myself a TC6 for VTA racing and my dad bought a TC6.1 for VTA as well. We are planning to be able to share parts so that we aren't buy parts for 2 different cars. In some of my reading I've read that the TC6 will use all the TC6.1 parts, is that true? Also was wanting to put good bearings throughout my TC6 are the RSD bearings suggested or avid?

Some parts are interchangeable on the TC6 and TC6.1 like the aluminum and carbon fiber parts. The 6.1 uses different arms, hubs, etc. You could convert one to the other though but I probably wouldnt mix the parts like having a TC6 front left arm with a TC6.1 right arm.

For bearings, I'm cheap, and ordered the Avid bearings and could not be happier. So far they have worked great. The price was great, shipping was fast, fit was great. I just installed them straight from the package for all my TC6 versions. I bought the kit packages and added a couple extra for my RSD DCJ's.

Im running 1 deg of anit squat. It helps. Mine has a bunch of steering entry, mid and exit steering. If u get too much try shortening the rear upper links to gain a bit more traction.

Im have 1 degree of anti squat also but im offset as will. But ive in the rear and both mounts are in the B position. Im hoping this will give me the steering i need! My my home track is 90x50 carpet track. So. The track is fast and sweeping.

So when you guys talk about anti squat you are talking about the front I guess.
Are you still using the 4 c-hubs so you run with a caster of 3 or did you change to 6 hubs and get a caster of 5?

Greetings, JP

Anti squat is rear. Referring to the angle of the pin when the front mount is higher. Kick up and anti dive are the front.
