A bit harder springs at the front and the softest available at the back. A softer oil in the side dumpers must be used also - try 10k.
Hello,
I tested Serpent srpings @back. They feel a bit softer.Also, I already tested softer oïl in tube, but it was not better on feeling and it was slower on lap time. Cause in quick change direction, car is hard to drive.

I'll test harder front springs this weekend @ETS.

What also should help is widening the rear axle with some shims.

Already did. Also in front.

If I look other brands setup with these tyres, they use pretty hard oïl in tube, like 100k and soft side spring. In front, they use ultra soft springs

Is your car is diffing out or spinning out one way, but not the other way?
If so then its tweaked, not even weight on the rear tires.
Did the car diff out before the Ride tyres?

I would take a close look though and see if you can figure out why it's spinning out one way if it didn't before. Something has changed or moved, make sure front end is still level and square, nothing broke or binding. Check the rear pod to see its free on the pivot ball.

my suggestion...

Front Low Downforce wing, rear high downforce wing..

when the traction is high, you may add more Caster

It's ETS wings, can't put another one. Maybe i'll try high down force from Serpent.

For front damper, ask Ollie

Fred, both side are lifting. Never tested the car with another tires.Pod is free

Hi, I went to build the diff as part of my build yesterday and I cannot get the bearing to go on. The flanged bearing goes on fine but the normally one just does not fit. Has anyone else has this problem? I have ordered some other bearings to see if there is just a problem with the one I got in my kit.

are you talking about the 3/8 x 1/4 bearing that goes beside the flanged bearing or the 5x11mm bearing that goes inside the drive side hub?

The 3/8 x 1/4 bearing that goes beside the flanged bearing. The flanged bearing and the 5x11mm go on perfectly.

Is it possible to use a Tamiya F103 thrust bearing in place of the 3/8 x 1/4 bearing?

The 3/8 x 1/4 bearing dont have any axial load, its more rotational as the drive side hub rotates. If anything, replace the 5x11mm with a thrust bearing as they wear out REALLY fast turning your diff gritty.

Try another 3/8 x 1/4 bearing and see if it fits, if not, you might need to carefully drill it out with a 3/8" bit
