Anyone running a D3.5 in blinky? How much end bell timing? Ball park for gearing? Thanks.

I have 1/2 oz in front of the front tower, the brass tyranny weights, 3/4oz in the back of the battery tray, and my shorty pack is all the way forward. The last time out with this set-up I couldn't get it to turn at all. I'm running it again tomorrow in a series race. Thanks
Assuming you're running the same front tires as the fast guys at your track? If so, to get more steering you could do softer springs up front or harder in the back, or softer sway bar (or none) in the front. You could also try to lay the shocks down more up front, or raise the camber links on the front hub. I would try one at a time though. I'll be corrected if I'm off on any of these suggestions. The 22 usually has a ton of steering.

29/75 with timing all the way up? Holy crap, that's tall and low torque to boot. I'm running 25/78 with factory timing with my D3.5, and we have a medium technical indoor clay track. 26 pinion felt too tall for getting out of corners quickly. Then again I'm not that fast, so :-)

Yep, all the way up. Obviously track size has a lot to do with it. I said medium but it may be large compared to what you're running on. 125'x90' on my outdoor track and 100'x75' or so on last year's indoor track.

Ah, that would explain it. Our track's website says "5,400 sq. ft. racing surface", so, if I can math, that's WAY smaller than what you guys are racing on.

Yes it is. Obviously we're giving up that low end grunt up off the corner in exchange for straightaway speed.

My first go to moves for increasing steering is the simple slide the battery forward,or sliding the rear hubs all the way back,the hub position can help a lot and is often overlooked

I am 25/78 with a Schuur Speed. timing at 34* or 35*, blinky. my track is tight though.

everything sounds accurate to me.
if i were him, I would take out that weight of the back.
try adding some camber gain to the front end should help a bit.
also, is the set up he's talking about 25/5 or 30/0?
