It might help if you post what vehicle you have, and your current setup.

It should be a generic answer to this question - but it is for my 6 and for my 801X

Thank you.
However - im currently running:
MBX6 - 15-5-10
801X - 10-5-5

But I still want more! I want to solve wide turns by adding power. idling through sharp turns just doesent do for me

7/5/3 or 5/4/2. This way you'll still have some turn in so maybe you won't need so much on power steering.

On a non diff note. Move the upper shock mount out a hole in the rear if you can. That will definitely improve on power steering. Other things to try, less front droop or less rear toe-in.

If you dont slow down enough for corner entry your gonna push no matter what you do. There is not a magic diff setup, you need to look at your antisquat, rear toe, front and rear camber links. But you sound like you already know alot, so have fun

Think you might be right - back to basic.
Tried quite a lot of different weird setups - in the search for the silver bullet.

i always go with opposites, if you want the front to do something you adjust the back, if you want the back to do something you adjust the front. if you want to do diffs, i would go thicker in the rear, always worked for me. also stand up the rear shocks all the way then adjust down from there till its right. maybe a lighter front oil would help also.

There is really no magic diff setup as I have tried all of them. However my best bit of advice would be to run JConcepts Crow/Bows. Crowbars in the front and Crossbows. Its crazy dialed. The Crowbars will put your car in which ever direction you point while on throttle.
