sorry for all the posts...
looks like yellow rears are 3.1lbs and the blue fronts are 4.3lbs. that is a huge difference! i didnt realize.
if i try a stiffer spring i will just go up one and try the red rears - 3.4lbs.
gonna try sway bar adjustments first, and a fresh set of tires.

maybe just go up a step in the sway?
what are you GUYS running for sways?
you running the stock cody setup WC?

thanks everybody

2.2 front and 2.0 rear sway. Several people are using the white fronts in the rear. thats why I said many people just get the front spring kit. To use in the rear.

I race outdoors on wet clay. The blues locked the rear end in for me and allowed faster square up but it didnt skate. I dont have a front spring kit or I would try more combos.

Easiest change for you to make is the sway bars.
Play around with some combos. Current front with stiffer rear... run a pack.
Than back to the old softer sway in the back and go stiffer in the front, run a pack.
Then try one step stiffer front and rear from your baseline and run a pack.

Which combo got you the reduced roll that you are looking for?
The chassis rolling will increase the bite of the tires from the weight transfer to the outside so reducing chassis roll will also reduce traction in a turn. That may cause other issues since you said that it feels loose, it may feel even more loose with stiffer sway bars.

You can play with different springs, but then you are changing your oil weights. Lots of ways to attack this, but if you like how it jumps and handles bumps you may not want to mess with the springs or oil.
Sway bar changes will affect the roll of the chassis but not how it reacts to the other inputs from the track. Spring and/or oil changes will affect your overall handling.
If you can't find you sweet spot with roll bar changes, you will need to dig into spring & oil changes.

4600 4 pole should be 13 to 14 wity a 62. I run a 13 indoor & outdoor now with the added torque of the 4 pole gearing down for a small track ks not needed

I used 13 tooth on a outdoor track that was roughly 95' x 105' temped around 150. I run a pro4 4600

get a temp gun and use the most aggressive pinion you can while maintaining a good 150-160 deg temp.

Doesn't this chart indicate 10 or 11 tooth for Pro 4 - 4600kV? Yet everyone seems to be suggesting at least 12 and up to 14 tooth?
