You have 100% on left and right turning on the radio but on the tracks ? The car turn in the same way on left and right ?
Personnally i'have 80% left and 100% right on the radio.

that too is why I sold mine for the new xray t2. The TC4 would push no matter what I did to it. I got tired of fooling with it after I won the series with it. Just too damn much work just to try to go through corners. Best of luck with her.

Rubber or Foam? Carpet or Asphalt?

i don't think you're going to get much help here on an SRD, from what ive seen of it on a web picture or two, its got wider hinge pin locations, shorter suspension arms, short upper links... most likely the weight distribution is slightly different too due to mounting locations and such... with this much of a difference in the cars the setups will not translate over exactly...

bukil: is your "wide turn" a low speed issue or a high speed issue? as for your setup i would first try a major step in either direction to get an initial feel for the direction you need to tune to. i.e. put a gold spring in the rear to stiffen the front and see what it does... then put a green in the rear and see what that does... these are pretty extreme changes and may make the car pretty crappy around the track, but wht you're trying to get out of it is a feel for the change in track feel when stiffening the front, and when making the rear softer. from this you should have a rough idea which direction will solve your issue and make smaller steps in that direction from your original setup...

I have tried that setup before. Gold springs in the front and silver in the back. It was crappy. I had a very nasty oversteer. I also tried silver in the front and green in the back. It was better. So far, the best setup that worked on my track is the one that I posted here.

I get wide turn on low and high speed issue but mostly on high speed. Anymore ideas?

Thanks,
Mark
