my car is super twitchy off power
Try to run only a little droop on the rear...not allowing the car to lift up to far off power. This will give your car less weight transfer to the front. About 3mm of chassis-droop should work.
Also try to run the rear end 2-3mm narrower compared to the front...maybe 200f-197r or 199f-197r...
Try max caster (that also helps on power steering)...
If a car gets lose on the rear under braking I also suggest harder rear springs or softer front ones. A softer front will reduce the load on the front wheels off power and under braking but will give slightly more steering during cornering.
Also remind the shock oils we are running here in Germany...maybe you give them a try.
Running less camber will give you the feeling of a more aggressive turn in but will reduce steering after.
To have a stable but tight cornering car we tried the short wheelbase and that gave us best results.
Also less chassis-droop on the front...only 2-3mm...to avoid too much lift.
Highest roll center position on the upper susp. arm.
Then try to run a cluth that you have the full control or "feeling" of. That means that it does not hit too hard...as the car with it's ultralight transmission will give you immediate response and tends to push to the outside. (imagine the front wheels to lift under load).
We've tried to run a spool but drivers did not like the feeling it gave...so we went back to the 80k-200k front. Seems like the car does not like that huge differences between front and rear diff.
Better try the different Ackermann plates. 10 will be very agressive compared to 12 that will make your car much easier to drive.
Compared to every other car having the traditional composite plastic bulks the quite stiff LAB C01 gives much better but also much more response on changes.
Today we have tried some different tires (rims and rubber) and Xray vs. Capricorn springs. We ended unsing the Capricorn HardLight tires and kit springs...most impressive was that the differences the changes made were that huge. From fast to pretty much faster
And last but not least 2010 is the new year of touring bodies. Having some very promising news. Blitz in two versions, Xceed with two bodies, Protoform with a new one...will be very interesting to find the body you like most :-(
