Take a look at post #1789 on Page 120 and the few post following on that page of this thread and it provides a good solution to this problem. I had the exact same issue with the rear bar and found it was bend. Followed the steps detailed and problem solved.

The LTC-R give good turn in, but sometimes you can use the Speed6 and get better lap times without it seeming to affect the steering.
I've been running the Speed6 at WLRC for the last few meetings.

Next time there I will most likely be running mod.

Eliminating the sway bar is beneficial on tracks with really uneven rough surfaces as, even though a bar will flatten out a cars feel, if one wheel is bouncng more than another, the bar will transfer that over. Although this could be a indicator that you don't have the proper dampening or one weak shock as well.
Yes, the track is not smooth like carpet.
No rear sway bar maybe the correct solution for my car.



And why does Xray include 700 cst oil in the kit if 2000cst oil is what everyone prefers? Could Xray be wrong with their starting set up?

after running a mod motor today i was also contemplating it,its a shame they dont run mod at amcc,i love the acceleration,what a buzz
but wlrc could do with a boost to mod,very light on drivers

Not wrong since my setup is probably different than yours at the same track, I don't know your track I'm just using it as an example. IMO it's a good starting point for most and that's what a box setup is for since everyone's driving style is different. I put 2000 in the diff and 450 all around out of the box and it was awesome. If you ask me the starting setup works 95% of the time and is real good and most don't go very far from there, if you ask me

Springs really depend on personal preference I have found.

With that said,

For Medium to Medium High Grip Asphalt, I like:
-Silver F/R and
-Silver F and Pink R.

For High Grip Asphalt I like:
-Blue F/R,
-Pink F and Blue R and
-Blue F and Black R

Ethan Erchinger just won the Open Modified Class at the Reedy Race using Red F/R with a 1.2 Sway Bar in the Front and no Sway Bar rear. The Red Springs are stiffer than the silvers.

On Carpet, most of the guys are running Blue and Black Springs.

This week we will also have a new spring to add to our asphalt spring set that will be softer than the silver spring.

when will the new spring set for asphalt be available online. I would like to invest in a set but if more springs are being added might be handy to wait. I run usually on low to medium grip outdoors.

How do you tell if the front belt is slipping? I'm having a big problem with the rear passing the front of the car, acting like it is a 2 wheel drive... The belt nubs are in tack and when I hold the front wheels (with a front diff in) I have a lot of resistance, but I'm trying to figure out if the belt is slipping causing this issue...

You can usually hear it clicking under braking if it is too loose.
