More or less, in the 2nd round it was literally every other corner...in the 3rd round i was recomended to put 4mm shims underneath the front camber links (on the bulkhead)..this helped some more.

In the final (i was in a crappy final so i had chance to test things) someone said to run 0 deg camber and lay the front shocks down (3rd hole in) and then it was doing it only a few times a lap. That was until about 4 mins in and it started doing it every other corner.

Do you have shims under your pivot blocks? IF so take them out or put smaller ones in. that will solve the problem.

Pivot blocks being the purple/black thingies that the hinge pins go into?

If so, then i don't have any shims..but someone said to put 1mm shims underneath all round.

Edit - Does it make a difference that i'm running the black version?

Now, would roll bars stop this from happening?
My setup?..Yet you began without the 4mm under the front inner upper camber-link, front shocks not mounted in tower hole #2 and without any spacers under the piviot blocks.
Please follow the setup more precicely and im sure there will be minimal problems, the only time i had issues with the setup feeling like it wanted to lift wheels and traction roll was when 6/4 droop was tested, i reverted back to 5/5.5 and most tested this and found it to their liking also.
Also your addative routine/brand may be an issue in this too, also if your using tyre warmers....

I should i said stew. I didn't have everything to follow your setup exactly, so i run it closest i could.

I'm running full additive with LRP carpet. I have ordered some more spacers etc so i can use your exact setup. I'm yet to try carters exactly aswell.

Also, your running a mod with locked centre pulley, will this make a big difference from running 19t with a one-way centre pulley?

Just a simple question, are those "white center pulleys" standard with the
Moore WC Edition kit?
