What does raising and lowering the side links do? What effect does raising the front arms on camber mount?

How did you manage to get a Hobbywing Justock esc shoehorned into an F1 car?

I have a problem with the handling of my F104V2. Yesterday in the morning practice the car was great it but as the day wore on the car started stepping out on entry to the bumpy corners. We race on a high surface that gets faster a the day goes on. In the am and the first qualifier the car works, but second heat and the main the car would over rotate on entry. Is there a cure for this problem?

a gyro!

Over-heated tires maybe? Have you played with other compounds as the day wears on?

I have been running pit 572. The temps were in the 80's in the morning, in the afternoon the temps were in the low 90's. Do you have a suggestions? I don't think it's the tires it doesn't over rotatw in the smoother corners, but in the bumpy turns on entry the car does over rotate. On exit the car is hooked up.

You can try harder front springs, reduce the amount of castor at the front and also thicker oil in the damper tube can help. Your best bet would be harder front tires though as they would affect the handling more.
