Had a great weekend this last Saturday at the Seattle Can-am Challenge. Took the TQ and set a new track record. Finished 2nd with a good battle with a local fast guy, but oh well a good weekend with the Flash. I'm thinking that the A-Main starting at 2:00am didn't help much man I was crunchy

How much middle droop are you running? I have been consistently having on power rear traction issues which cause over steer coming out of the corners. Trying to fully understand Pan chassis dynamics since it seems so different from TC. Any suggestions on a source of learning for Link chassis knowledge?
There is plenty out there for full suspension cars but the pan car info is a bit fragmented.
Thanks

Try -1mm. The more rear droop usually cause the oversteer off power.

Mark's car looked great.

What did you think of direct servo setup vs using the steering rack?

When I switched to the direct setup steering smoothed out and was much more consistent. The orings under the links were the other big change to improve car control in traffic
