Default body for more steering

Hi,

Which body out there give you the most steering. Tried the blitz r09 and didnt like it was understeering too much. Central body was ok for fast sweeper.... hence looking for alot of steering in slow corner.

Maybe it is to do with my ackerman setting ? would it turn more with more ackerman (rods more angled) or less ?

Thanks

ZYTEC by far has the best steering, but youll need to find out when it pushes, mid corner, corner exit etc. to find the right set-up

S966 with Blitz gives a loose tail, certainly under breaking.
S966 with Zytec gives most steering in slow corners and holds the car planted during breaking...
Zytec is still the best choice for the 966, atleast that's my opinion....

The 966 has a one way in the front not a diff, there was a solid that was made not too long ago by another company but i think it was deemed illegal by ROAR because its considered braking on 2 axles

Off set. the 960 08 and 966 come with the OS2 axles, so they fit the mugen / Kyosho style rim. you will not get a serpent rim on that axle.

i have run Mugen before in 8th.
but i started with the 960 08, ok car.
then i got the 966 upgrade, and then yeah, it came alive. the best car i have driven , but thats not many either. the 733, and 966 have the lap records in bunbury. im a lone ranger in 8th scale for Serpent here, but have managed a few to change to the 733 and 720 in tourer.

Check the ROAR rule book.

There is NO mention of a rule against a solid front axle in 1/8 scale on-road.
