Default Mugen mbx5r setup - need help

Hi.

So I am driving a mbx5r, few mods, no breaces, everything light as it can be. I need a good setup for medium size tracks with less tracition (loose ? i guess). Car runs great on straights and long fast corners but "doesn't turn" when power off, even with power on turns "lazy".

My diff setup : front 7k, mid 7k, rear 3k
Shocks: front 45, rear 40, grey springs
shocks as possible as i can to the middle of car on shocks and same on lower arms (front&rear), ackermann on middle hole, 1 degree outside on front wheels. (rest is std.)

Give me a clue what should I change to make it turn better ?

Go smaller on the front sway bar size,

Move the rear shocks more torward the outside on the tower,

Try going with 5k front diff fluid.

Talking Thanks

Why not the traditional 7/5/3, or is it 5/7/3???

Thanks for the info. I'll give er a shot.

Thanks much.

BTW, what makes the car turn better off power.

And I don't mean a wall.
