I am running diffs front and rear. The rear diff is not too tight. I have softened up the rear a lot. I also added more front droop. I am running 17lbs springs in the front and 14lbs in the rear. It seems like the rear is to soft or not rebounding enough. Like the car rolls over in the corner and the front levels out and the rear is still leaning. Does that make any sense

Rebuild your shocks and try a slightly lighter oil in the rear like 5 to 10 weight less!! and check your roll centres and camber links make sure your rear links are never longer than the front.

Yea.....Get a Cyclone You know you want one
That I know of your Xray never hooked before ?????
As you know my Cyclone hooked and the only way I could stop it then and still have good steering was to use a heavy sway bar and lighter springs on the front.
We both have changed many things, I'm not sure what I changed that stopped my hook but I don't seem to need the heavy sway bar anymore
One of the things I changed was I now have more ackerman action then I ever had before.
Guys......Could more ackerman stop an on power hook coming out of a turn????

have tried every spring/oil combo and droop settings


I'm thinking roll centers, where is the best place to shim to get more roll in the rear?

If you have 4mm Ackerman then reduce it to 2mm it wont be so aggressive turning in, which stops the back from following the front round to quick, you may feel the steering being a bit numb, but it will smooth the car out

1.5 under the hinge pin blocks is a good starting place.

I know when the rear end in my car would step out I tried everything.. Then I saw one of hara set up sheets and he had the bigger spacer in the rear hubs in front and the little spacer in the rear of hub. Hopefully it make sense if not hit me up with a pm.
