check your steering dual rates
i was in the same position as you maxed out endpoints and all
my dual rate was only at 50%

its all good now

instead of all the setting/tuning (toe, camber, droop, diff, shock, castor, hole position, anti squat, ride height, anti roll bar), what else modification can be done to this car to make it more superb...

Captured hinge pins, Jammin' carbon brakes, one piece engine mount, Lunsford turnbuckles, and a lot of practice time :-)

no aaron..., i mean modification and not setting/tuning by the option/upgrade part..
ex:- dremel back of the rear hub to get longer wheel base, dremel lower arm to get more droop, making new hole on rear shock tower to get longer rear upper arm linkage.... what else...???

Oh! haha

That's all I've messed with so far. I haven't done the rear arm thing in a while either..I think the longer camber link helped, so I've just been running my rear hubs spaced back but not dremeled.

I did dremel the front arms slightly to make sure I can get full lock-to-lock steering without the caster blocks hitting the arm.

dual rates in a short sense controls how much throw you have with steering from side to side
it does it evenly..not more to one side nor the other...end points take care of that
look through the manual and stuff it should tell you where its located on the transmitter

i run airtronics 94358 200oz of torque

So you said that yours was at 50% did you go up to 100 or down to 0 to get better response?

You go higher to get full throw.

I run a 94359 for steering and throttle. The 359 is the same servo supralative is running, with ALL metal gears, and a heat-sink case.

what about the bodyshell.. heard many racers modify their bodyshell position to place it more lower and aerodynamic

arghh - I haven't done anything to the body. I'm running a Pro-Line wing on my car..it definitely sits lower than the stock one.

The bodies available now are different than at first..the new ones sit lower.

eekern - I didn't change my setup at all actually...obviously, the pistons and oil inside the shocks are different (I'm not sure what pistons Jay handed us that day..but I'm running 50 in the front and 37.5 in the rear) but the rest of it is all the same.

How many racers are running the jamin out your way, percentage wise. Go ahead give it a guess.

Please give me what you would do and what it improves overall?
