Car is set as per Andy Moore worlds setup with the difference being I am using 0.5mm anti squat in the rear and using standard shock pistons with 45w oil in front& 40w oil in rear.
Also using 19lbs springs front & rear.

I think you will be able to help me out Jason seeing the glowing appraisals about your carpet chassis.

first thing i would try is softer springs and oil.the stiff springs seemed to make my car twitchy and scrub off speed because the car was not rolling and absorbing enough of the weight transfer.on a fast flowing track i ran 13.5lb. springs with 35 wt front oil and 30 wt. rear.for a tight track i normally bumped up the front spring tension a little and left the rear springs the same.i always stick with the same oil for our tracks.

i would run 1.5mm shims under the blocks front and rear.try maybe 15 lb. springs all around with 35 wt front oil and 30 wt rear.if you need more entry steering try the anti squat.i also run a 1mm shim under the ballstud on the rear links and a 2.5mm under the front studs.which tires are you running?

Rubber tires
Are you saying that by lowering the roll centre I will hold more corner speed?
I thought that would increase the roll into the corner hence more speed lost.
Have always liked a car with alot of steering.

actually yes,on asphalt roll is good.if you generate too much side bite,the car will bind up.what you are looking for is the same amount of steering with a smoother less twitchey feel.this will also free the car up where you feel it is binding up in the corner and scrubbing speed.that loss of cornerspeed you are experiencing is too much side bite.give it a whirl and let me know how it goes.

normally 2mm shim under the block only used on high traction, high speed track, high track temp and modified motor will be only used this setup it help to decrease your tire overheat faster.

I'll have my setup posted tonight from this weekend. It was very hooked up. Just too much driver error.
