Default Checking tweak without a board

Start with a flat surface that is as parrallel to the ground as possible.

Set the car at the edge of the surface.

press down on the front and rear shock towers simotaniously and release all at once.

Allow the car to come to a complete rest.

Take an exacto knife and gently and slowly lift up from the center most part of th chassis you have access to.

once both tires lift off the surface slowly lower the chassis back down to the surface,.

observe which tire touches the surface first.

repeat 2 more times, compresssing the suspension before each lift.

Once you have isolated the "light" tire make a small adjustment to the shock collar at the opposite side and end of the car (LF>RR, RF>LR)

once both tires touch at teh same time turn the chassis around and check the other end of the car.

Recheck each end of the car 3 times to make sure everything is flat.....

Remember that you must make sure all droop screw settings are equal side to side and all swaybars are not bent!!!! as these will also effect the twek of your car.....

nope wasnt that. it did it at the track with the A slicks and with some crap test tires. i thought about that at first too but i changed them a few time and it still drifted. it drifts mainly at the rear wheels. sometimes even spining out.

I don't know if this is possible with the 04 but, when I bought my c4 used they had used screws through the diffs that were to long. This resulted with the suspension not being able to compress fully because the dogbone end of the cvd would hit the end of the screw. The front right and rear left suspension wouldn't compress fully(or was it the other way around?). When I turned one way it stuck solid and nearly never slid out and when I turned the other way once I was up to speed it just wanted to spin. I couldn't figure it out for a while and then it clicked. So I sat down and spent 10hr's rebuilding and cleaning the whole car and countless hours after that making sure setup was perfectly equal on each side of the car. The results were good.

Hope this helps.
