WYD

what type of track surface do you run on and whats the lay out like..I might be able to get you some more corner speed

Also what is your current set up for that track

I couldn't get the car to run in hard enough. I'm going to go to an Alpha or Stratus as everytime I run the Mazda my cars never are that consistant. I'm putting the 5 degree caster blocks on instead of the Xenon 7 degree alum ones that are on the car right now. I can stay on the throttle a little harder going in. It was not really bad. Just need a few weeks of running the car every weekend to get my skills back and to get it dialed in.

I'm going to change the caster for this weekend. I'm going with the stock 5 degree blocks and I might try the new 3 degree ones to just to see what happens.

Hmm, you seem to have similar problems to me. I may try the original c-hubs too, then again I may be looking for carpet setups soon.....

I wasn't sure of the Mazda 6 shell either, it was neither neutral or agressive.
