Default Need more on power stearing ?...MBX6

Im having issues with a long flat sweeper. I cant power through it like I want. Bad push. It's good off power getting into tighter corners. Not sure what to try first.-

Default Well

I would go to 7 in the center diff, put the 2.5 degree toe in block and move the front upper arm foreward all the way. Then 40 wt all round, the lower rear of the front a arm should be the higher hole to lessen the a arm angle. This is all the mugen needs to be fast....and get some soft I beams....I never use medium compound....

try 7/5/3 what that'll do is the front will pull the buggy in any direction you point it but it will make the car slingshot the rear around if you over steer but it well give you all the on power steering you need.

I was using that setup for a long time ( it lets you drift the car around the corners perfectly but you have to using alot of throttle which was killing my fuel time)

I'm currently using 5/7/5..... i like it alot, I lost some off power steering but made the car very, very, planted I don't drift the car anymore which is a good thing.

I know this sounds counterintuitive but try 5k in the rear diff. It helped make mine drive more directly from the rear. Also if it is a high speed sweeper push the front upper arms back. That will increase high speed steering.

Limit front droop a couple of mm's, add 1* of anti squat. Both easy to try and change back from if they don't have the desired effect.

I went to 5/7/3 and tweaked the rear roll center a little. Its worlds better. Like a whole new car. Thanks for the advice.

Default Sweet

this is my setup to a T damn near, except i use 400/450 and soft city beams.

try to stay away from supersoft though. i was running supersoft during the winter and worked great. Not so much when it gets hot. soft is where it's at for summer

Was having the same problem with my car at HotRod Hobbies. Although my car was not good going into the corners as well this is the changes I made to my car. The two things that I changed that made the bigest difference was I went to a 3.0 sway bar in the back and 2.5 toe in the back. If you would like my setup sheet you can email as I do not know how to post it here.

I bet your buggy turns on a dime and yet is stable and being a mugen it doesn't spin out in the turns either. With the mugen you basically need to loosen up the car, it's too stuck, and likes too much steering....Cool man...
