I tryied to set up the front solid axle and check the letest low grip that Our Friend DS pablished but I am having a problem.
How am I going to use the plastic ship with the axle since it doesn't stay in place? Should I use a glue and glue it to the pinion?
If somebody can help please do...
As for shofter springs I used the Blue Xray ( same length ) but I think I will need something harder..Maybe violet...
Yes, you use glue to fasten the ring to the solid axle pulley.

Besides trying softer spring I would also try lowering the front roll centre. If the car is only oversteering lower the rear roll centre, if the car just doesn't have any grip at all you could lower the roll centre all around.
With the softer springs you could also soften the damping, with the Capricorn white or red springs I use 450-550 oil with 3 hole pistons.
The Xray blue springs are a good set to use when the traction is low or the track is bumpy.

The practice was placed at R1 race track at Aspropyrgos!
As for the set up Daan I used the one that You forward Me and the car became more grippy but not enough.
As You say I will lower the rol center and order the red springs.Also I will try 500 or 550 damper oil in addition to 600 that I use now.
What do You think about 6 hole damper pistons Daan?
