Car drives /turns great tho dont turn in as hard as i want it to .
Drags both sides of chassis BAD (high traction 2010 iic carpet) !
What would u do ?
not worry about the carpet drag. its not going to slow you down unless the hole chassis is dragging.

If the car is very stable, try a more aggressive body.

Drag is good...that is how I know my car is working. I look forward to cleaning my chassis off. Of course there is a limit to that statement, but if you are dragging a few millimeters on each side your good to go!

Testing everything at the moment, but Speed 6 is the most common.

Forgot that I have all 4 screws removed also .
How would anti-dive give more initial steering ?
That was actually why I stood rear shocks up was so it transfered more weight to the front off power .

You can try so many things to get the car to dive in better into the corner but you will usually lose some middle turning. Try anything !

1)Softer Spring in front
2)Softer oil in front
3)lower your shock position in front
4)Anti -dive
5) LTC body
6)have more angle on front camberlinks.
7)make front of your car narrower
8)Go to 2 degree castors

+1

But I would never take out screws on carpet, that's counter productive.

The change you're looking for is raising the outside front and rear camber link. That will give you entry steering as well as a lighter rear diff oil.
