If tons and tons of traction, you can try Marc R's JMRCA setup with a few changes to the rear roll center.

That you Joey? I have off next Saturday. Just not sure if I want to race in a dust bowl or not. I would rather race King that Saturday. Especially with all the work Chris and the gang put into it. Only to have a big race scheduled on their only race day for the month. So it will be 2 months before they see any racers come out. I guess it depends if Rock Hill cleans off the track good enough. If not, I'm just gonna work on my real car that weekend. But I will be in King for sure next month.

I think syn was commenting on that a bit tongue in cheek.... after all, 416's have been 1-2-3 at the past two rounds

Yeah, sorry, that was my feeble attempt at humor. I should stick to making snarky comments and pissing people off. :-)

i drive on asphalt with foam tires. i used harder springs at the rear to gain more front traction without losing much rear traction. tamiya blue at the front and corally white (20lbs) rear. i could full throtter down the sweeper, but however my lap time didnt improve but was actually slower, so i swap back to yellow springs on the rear.

what have you tried? have u tried toe-out? more rear droop? more verticle front shock position? increase servo travel? i was suffering from understeer a while back ago. but now its all sweet because i've changed those settings i mentioned above. and oh yes, i went from 30mm rear width tires to 27mm at the moment, and front is 26mm. let me know how it goes...
