What front springs are you running? Camber? It doenst take a lot of camber to make the car nervous and hard to drive.
I just put my IIC Setup on the xray web page today as well
3.5 front springs and 1,0 camber.
I have tested a bit further - se "version 2" setup on XRAY - Ok, but it was on nearly worn out rear tires. I has a tendency to overturn midturn and out of turns.
Have on new tyres (42/44.5) tried the same set-up but with the soft silver sidesprings, and it worked ok also - no significant changes in the cars behaviour.
Have today tried your frontend (with 5 active caster and 2 mm shim in front and 1+0.5 in back) and 1 degree castor (tires wear flat). Miss a bit of initial turn in, but way better and more controlabel mid turn and out of turns. Overall also a bit more stable and very easy to drive. Overall a bit slower than with the more agressive frontend set-up.
Will on tuesday try with 10k (green tube sponge) in tubes, gold centerspring and sidesprings and see what happens. Also play a little with sidespring load to se how it affect the initial turn in in corners ... and perhaps get the missing amount of turn in that way
Kind regards; Jens
PS. Almost everyone else drive 30k or 40k in tubes and sidespring/centerspring to the hard side at my track - all drive dbPink front and Pink rear - in their cars /Top, BMI Copperhead and Serpent LT).
