Default 777 LSD question

Just upgraded from a OFNA PCR PBS car to a K 777 SP-1 and am having trouble with the handling of the car. Under power the car is so loose that it is impossible to drive. It handles flawlessly braking, coasting and under light acceleration but it is very unstable at full speed and under hard acceleration... the back end just wants to come around. I am running all suggested suspension settings from the instructions and am looking for some experienced input before I start making changes. It's got the LSD in the front, 4000 C and 1000 R. 22 Deg in front with 1.5 deg toe out, Rear has 3 deg kickup and 2.5 deg toe in. I have been told that many people replace the LSD front diff for a standard spider. Will this setle the car down under acceleration? Anyone have a similar experience? How'd you fix it? Are there setup sheets anywhere for diferent track surfaces? I can't find any. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have already tried front toe in and out and it seems that 1.5 to 2 deg of toe out is the most stable. I tried 7000 wt in the center dif which made the car more unstable under acceleration than the 4000. I reviewed Yuichi Kanai;s setup from 2003 on the KIII and the only major difference from his setup to mine is that he runs 2.5 deg neg camber in the rear and I am running 1deg neg. I tried no sway bars, just front and just rear and it made no noticable change to the acceleration characteristics of the car. I have never had a car that steers too well to drive... Please help!!!!

From: greg degani (gregdeg)

Got Back from Hemet car worked really well on Saterday, did lots of
testing with different set-ups. Finished third and almost won it but
crashed at the end..I had gotted lapped 7 minutes into the 15 minute
main by chad but i managed to put in fast laps in the last 7 minutes
and un-lapped myself and almost one but i blew it with 45 seconds
left..anyway Found a decent set-up for bumpy tracks. Diff
5000,7000,1000 Front oil 60wt 1.4 rear oil 35 wt 1.4 Front upper link
long, "High block""A" Middle steering hole on steering link. Shocks
inside on arm,inside on tower 14 mm ride hight clips front.
Rear end.. Shocks inside hole arm Second hole from inside on tower,
Use
the upper shock holes on the tower. 3 degree toe in,2 degree
antisquat.
Rear hubs back, use bottom hole hinge pin on hubs. 17 mm ride-hight
clips. Full travel front and rear(in the front yur travel is limited
by
the arms hitting the chassie...and in the rear your travel is limited
by the shocks in the top holes in the tower) So no need to mess with
your droop screws..Hope that covers it..

this is a add on for the degani setup.

#81 of 105 by greg degani (gregd) on Wed Jan 5 16:06:55 2005

Mike, Run 3000,7000,3000 for Kz. My car was really good there at the last races..Ive done a ton of testing with diffs the last month, Ive come to realize that you dont ever need to run an lsd in the front, all it does is make your car hard to drive through bumps and just in general. You can run a 3000 up front and turn-in like an lsd but still have the stability and ease to drive of a diff. If 3000 up front gives you too much steering run 5000 instead. Running 3000 in the rear is really the key to the 777. It calms the car down and give it super stability and traction out of the corners. If your on a super hooked up track like Hemet that also has a lot of bumps, 1000 in the rear will probably be better, but everywhere else run 3000.

Default Diff gears

Just wondering if the diff bevel gears have changed from the 7.5. I am going to change the TCD diff in front to standard and need to order some parts.
