So far i managed to get my steering to be linear and consistent. However im suffering from a loose end, and i cant drive to save my own life with a loose end car.
detail of "loose end" :
coming into a corner with speed, car holds well and then snaps. I have to enter a corner slower compared to other cars just to be able to drive. I cant push it hard into and around corners.
Ive went through this thread to overcome my prob, for confirmation to my understanding, fyi, i dont know how to read the set-up sheet
1. increasing the rear width (offset clamps? Shims?)
2. rear shock mounted on upper hole
3. harder rear springs
4. lighter diff oils or heavier?
My diff 2k, ambient temp 30 C.
Rear shocks 450w, 1.2mm 3-hole, stock spring.
Rest of the rear setup is stock from the manual.
I greatly appreciate it if you guys could help me. Early thanks.
p/s; @Hanulec. Where do you insert the shims to remove the steering rack slop? thanks
I had the same issue, when I get home from work I will send you my set up. Our track is medium bite and a little bumpy, I was able to yet the rear pretty planted and was able to turn some laps in 17.5 that nobody else has achieved.
