Nick,

What is the truck not doing and maybe we can help you tune what you have?

just the typical SC10 rear end not staying planted problem. It wants to come around like a 2wd does coming out of corners. That and in some of the faster corners its has a huge pushing problem. I ordered a set of the AE swaybars and I'll try them and hopefully get it a bit more planted

Got any other ideas??

1. Increase rear toe in.
2. Less negative camber in the rear, stand tires more straight up.
3. Change the angle of your rear shocks. Try both ways.
4. Increase weight of the rear diff fluid.

I would do one change at a time to see what makes it better or worse.

i have the rear camber at like 1 degree so i cant go much less on that. i think next week i'll mess with shock angles and try some heavier diff fluid. I have 7k in it now

7k sounds pretty high for the rear. What do you have in the front?

7K sounds very high. Lower that. 2-3k? Let the front pull you around more.

(But don't make these changes until after the ROAR race)

The precip % for Saturday keeps dropping, down to only a 20% chance of a passing shower now. Lets go racing! Call the shop tomorrow with any questions, I won't be on the forum much, got a lot of track work to do. Christa will be in the shop all day to answer any questions. 717-463-9173

Thanks,

Kevin.

The weather is really looking good up to dark on Saturday, with that in mind, I just want everyone to be prepared for an early start time. We will open the track at 7am, sign up will close at 10am, racing at 10:30am. Sorry for the time push but I don't want anyone to miss their mains.

Thanks,

Kevin
