On my Ko radio, I set the steering travel to 100%, then set the endpoints till the wheels lock. Then I back off the steering travel adjustment to 90%. So it's about 90% of full travel.

Default terrible handlind

SO I decided to stiip the car down to it's kit form. On the final stage after setting the droop I discovered that in the front I can only get 4mm ride height. Could this be the bulkheds or the shock tower. this is the TC

Either you have too much Droop (I run max. 6mm on Blocks when using Sorex Tires) or your Dampers might be too short.
Make sure, that the Downstop screw doesn't limit the rideheight.

You could also check your suspension blocks and shafts if they are flat/straight.

But normaly, if I couldn't make rideheight, it were the Downstop screws.

Thanks Korey, I thought that for the carpet to use less steering angle.

I just drilled the holes needed for the FR blocks on a mill at work..
Is there any idea to also drill holes for the RF blocks? I dont have my TC at work so i cant check if there's enough clearance for the belt..

Korey/Hiro, do you tune your chassis using spacers under the outer steering link (bump steer) ? When I look at the geometry it looks like adding more spacers would induce a bump steer on the outside (loaded) tire and could be useful in getting more midcorner but when I try it it seems like it takes steering away or deadens the steering.
Just wondering if either of you have worked with it.
Thanks.

They fit. I use the tamiya 3 hole pistons interchangeably with the hb 1.1mm 3 hole pistons. Thats pretty much what a tamiya piston is, but the outer diameter is ever so slightly larger. Personally, I can't really tell the difference on the track, so I use both.

I've never bothered to mess with it. Bump steer is something I've honestly never bothered to mess with too much in a touring car. Only in extreme cases where the original suspension geometry was REALLY weird (I won't say which car lol), and needed adjustment to take most of it out.

Might be something I play with in the future though.

Thanks!

Front
pink springs
40wt AE oil
4 position on front tower Try #3 on the tower
outside hole on front pro4 arm
1.4 front sway bar
1.5 front block Try 2.5 deg block it should give you more initial turn in better
droop 2mm on blocks
1.0mm under all front suspension blocks. Go up to 1.5mm to get quicker responce
4mm ackerm
3mm spacer under front camber tie rod Try start with 2.0mm
2 of camber
5.5mm ride height If the track is not bumpy, try 4.5-5.0mm

Rear
silver springs
40wt AE oil
#2 pistons 1.1mm 3 holes would work better if you want the car aggresive
4 on the shock tower
middle hole on old pro 4 arm
1.2 rear sway bar
3.0 rear block
droop 3-3.5mm
1.5 mm shims under all suspension blocks.
rear hub spacers 0.75 in front 2.0 in rear change it to 2.0/front, 0.75/rear
2mm spacer under rear camber tie rod Try 1.5mm or stay with 2.0mm and then go #3 hole on tower.

Let me know after you try it.
Thanks,
the car felt much more reactive at the beginning of a corner, much more steering. But im still suffering from a little on-power understeer at the mid and exit of the corners. Any fix for this.
