Default push

try raising front ride height or lower rear( less droop) i would try a stiffer rear spring. when you are pushing you need more weight transfer to the front... also depends on wheel base, anti squat and rear toe.....you could also use the lower or a shorter front link... or run hole a in the rear hubs.. is this problem off power or on power?

I would try softer front springs along possibly with moving the rear shocks out on the shock tower. But I don't know what Drake's setup from the Neo race is, is that how they're already positioned?

On power push.

I think I am going to try some of the ideas here.

If you are refering to me.

My problem is getting the car to turn into the corner without having to completely lift off the throttle in entry and mid-corner. I can't seem to get the car to drive through the corners. If I apply any power it starts a push.

Maybe your clutch shoes need the corners cleaned, you should check them every couple of days (or more often). If the aluminium starts to squish over the edges they can start to hang up on the fly wheel or clutch bell causing your engine to stall when you let off the gas.

Talking TOE-IN & BUMP STEER

Anyone here run around 1 degree to 2 degrees TOE-IN. Is toe-in a bad thing to run with the 3 degrees of rear toe-in.

I'm also wondering whether or not the car will handle better with the bump steer up or down.

THANKS EVERYONE !
