0* front toe pivot block and have used 1* and 1.5* never more then 1.5* in front.
3* rear toe pivot block.
2mm under ball studs in front, 1.5mm back.
1.5mm under pivot blocks front and back.
4 degree caster.
long front and back links, tried short and middle, still hooked coming out.
1.4 sway bar front none in back but tried 1.2 in back and it was worse.
22lbs front 19lbs back springs.
Small technical track with 180* and 90* corners.
Rubber tires and carpet.
BMI 3mm chassis, stock upper chassis.
Man if I could get it to stop hooking coming out I would be one happy guy. Any help would be much appreciated.
Are you running the car with a shorter or longer wheelbase? I have run with the wheelbase on the short side and the car would over rotate very easy. I moved the wheelbase out long and it smoothed the car out nicely. Also, narrowing the rear track width(narrow hexes
) will give the car more rear traction at corner exit.
You may also look at your droop settings. Running a little more droop in the front(greater mm above ride height
) will help transfer more weight to the rear when your on-power exiting the corner.
I would play with different springs too. I was running pretty soft(16lbs) in the rear at the Snowbirds and it really calmed the car down and kept the rear end planted in the 19T Rubber Class.
These are just a few suggestions. Change one thing at a time and good luck to you.
