how many of you run your 8's with a diff setup other than 5/7/2 . my 8 always feel loose and like it has no steering. i always run the local hot tire,check ride height,droop ,shocks drilled 54/40 molded 56/25 3/3 plate standard link setup everybody else runs. i don't know if the car just isn't suited for me or what. some say i overdrive it to hard and that's why it's like that. the only way i've been able to get it to feel right was the shortest link in the front and 3k in the front diff but it still pushes or feels loose. any suggestions oh and i've check all the hinge pins and the servo saver works properly with a truggy spring

i have been running the car for about 9 months and it's never felt like it steers as good as a kyosho or a hyper 8
