Tires: Change them! Anything from Take-off/RP/Sorex. Check with the local fast drivers to see what their using. If the track is bumpy, then use a softer insert with more airgap.

Castor: 1 deg is probably too direct for such a large high speed track. Change to 4deg. This gives you much more stability.

Camber - check your tire wear. If the outer portion of the tire is getting worn, then use more camber. I'd try around -1. No more.

Roll centers - which blocks are you using on the car? Use a SMALL or very thin spacer under the blocks. Good for low traction tracks as the car rolls more to generate grip.

Maybe try heavier weight oil to calm the car down. Esp with the above changes.

Rear Toe: Use more toe if the rear kicks out. For MOD I never run anything less than 2.5, even more regularly 3.0deg

That's just a general observation. Hope that helps you on your way.
hi, d race i'm joining is a controlled race which must use HB Gumball tyre.

front i use 2.5 , rear i use 3.0 block which is standard for black edition cyclone.

d caster u mean is +4 degree ??? wouldnt tat too much steering ???

I'm afraid not, although Team Bomber make a very slightly different top deck, I don't think its any thicker......if you're having that much of a problem I guess you could use a composite Cyclone-S top deck, which can withstand harsher impacts before snapping than c/f, but this will almost defiantly have an adverse effect on the handling of the car...

now i remember i did have a crack one in that spot a year ago and it was due to a bent bulkhead in the front, when i installed the new top deck it wasnt aligning properly and it was adding extra stress to it, might be a long shot but try that 1st

Whats the biggest spur I can fit being safe with the stock motor mounts?

I want to do a 105, or 106, will this hang out the bottom of the chassis? Or am I safe?
