Also used the new clutch reversed system and found it better than the normal one. Smoother take off!

So you might be saying whats my problem, basically during practice and qualification the car is .50 per lap slower (avg lap 19.2sec) and very hard to drive (unstable). My biggest concern is that in chicanes the car understeers and on some others tight turns it oversteers heavily that i loose control its also very twitchy. How am i going to sort this out.

They prep the track by sugar and water and from how i set the brake i have noticed that track is very slippery early in the morning.

Suggestions plz

Thanks

Speed6 sounds like your car is set up for a higher traction track.
In the morning when the track is dirty your car will be harder to drive as it doesn't generate enough grip then as the day goes on your car is fastest. This is totally normal.
Like blis said let the track come to you

My concern is that my direct competitors are almost as fast in race as qualification with the same setup their timing is close to the .10 of a sec between qualification and race. I hope its not a chassis design thing i.e its more good in high grip.

Just a little food note :-)... Let's say your set-up is good, problem is not there. How about your clutch set-up?

If clutch setup is to aggressive when traction is low, the car can become a bit difficult to drive and react as you say.

I don't know you set-up, but have you tried looseing the spring 0.2mm?

Just a thought.

Br,

Niko

I have set the clutch to be very smooth and on power I can easily handle it, the off power entry steering and reaction becomes to erratic and aggressive. Coming into a corner a bit aggressive will spin the car even if I don't apply brakes. Tried reducing rear droop to reduce rear camber rise but no effect. Thought of trying harder front shocks and another test with a harder front sway bar.

Hmmm, ok.

What caster are you running up front and how much toe-out on the front wheels?

Niko

try toe out 1.0.
but, what about your steering servo settings? I run mine -40% expo.
I've never had the problem which you are facing. could it be that a plastic suspension part is bending somewhere?

Hmm, that should be fine. So problem most be found elsewhere.

Saw Italboy run -40% expo...

I run 2mm spacer behind arm and 1.5mm toe-out and no expo....

So your problem must be elsewhere.

Some pictures of your car on and off the wheels would be good.

I have noticed a lot of Pro drivers which run the SRS-n are cutting the rear window larger than the mark. Would like to know the effects in handling.
Dario's car had installed plates to the sides of the rear spoiler, i guess for more stability.
