if u are running on asphalt, u should use lighter oil in front.
u will get more steering.

Your right about the dampers .. if you lay down the rear a little more you get more steering.
When do you need more steering ? Going in/out or mid corner og all the way around ?

Thanks for the reply stjerno
Its mostly getting the front end into the corner where I'm struggling. Originally I thought that when you dropped the front shcoks down it would give more steering (effectively softening the springs I believe), but obviously I was proved wrong

Cheers

Going in you also migt want to go 0,5mm lower rideheight in front than in the rear, this will move the weight to the front of the car and give more steering.
Don't know the caster blocks on the Triox but you should try the 3 deg blocks in front and maybe the 3 deg rear toe hubs to as they will give less gripp in the rear = more front grip

And as TC3 writes .. lighter oil in front.

Some good advice for indoore racing .. if your track has wooden rails around the track .. DON'T use the hards hubs ect.. go with the plastic stuff .. This is what I call experience

I would have though the Cuda to do a bit better than it did in Qualifing.... .. Oh well.... it seems like Some of the Alex/Xenon Drivers were going back and forth between the R3 and R2 Xenon maybe better luck 2 years from now??
