Default B4 steering

How can I get more high speed steering without affecting or minimumly affecting low speed steering? 30 degree caster blocks seemed to help some but I would like a little more. Would switching from 3 degrees anti squat to 2 help? Maybe a little less rear wing angle would be better. Any help would be appreciated.

It would help to know your setup. Springs, pistons, shock oil and shock positions....

Set up is pretty much stock team kit. Only differences is # 2 pistons all the way around, 35 wt oil in front shocks, and upper rear shock mounting in inner most hole.

Go to Brown springs in the front. Green in the Rear and #1 pistons all around. This is pretty much what all the factory guys use as a baseline. If you really want to do some reading on the subject go to www.rc10b4.com and search the word "steering" This is the premiere B4 site that is frequented by the important associated drivers. Make sure you do a search first before asking.

You will find what I suggested to be the first thing to try.

Good Luck.

Don't know if I'm ready to make such a big change. I like the feel of this set up on our track other than a little push on sweeping corners. Just trying to tweak what I got. I will check out www.rc10b4.com for more info though. Thanks for the info.

Put 3 washes under the ball studs each side on the front. Also run about 2 deg toe out. I also run 30deg caster blocks and my buggy has great steering. I have brown springs to.

You could try using 32.5 wt oil in the front-move the upper shock out one hole on the rear or maybe a front tire change to a m2 compound.

Default ways to increase high speed steer

1. raise ft & rear ride height
2. thicker oil in ft
3. firmer insert in ft tire
4. longer ft camber link
5. a worn down set of ft tires
6. a narrow ft tire has more high speed compared to a wider ft tire
7. stiffer ft spring
8. mount shocks towards the outside holes on towers

try #1 first,
than if not enought go to#5 and #3
