i ment 0.5 mm spacer front front and 0.0 front rear

cool it is a little twitchy

->this would be from the high front RC, the front tends to skate in corners when you have a too high front RC compared to the rear. Try going to 0 under the front-front block and 0.5 under the front-rear, with 5mm of spacers under the front camber link on the bulkhead. You should also have 0.5mm under both rear blocks, and rear camber links flat
got no spacers under the rear blocks

what is the camber link ???

sorry technical terms still confuse me LOL

that will give you 1/2 a degree of front kick up, also known as prodive. Basically the opposite to anti dive, the car will transfer more weight forward under brakes. It will also soak up bumps better. I've never felt the need to use it with my 416, even on bumpy tracks

D/D on the front will sort that out, make sure you have the 1mm wheel spacers in the front

That is definitely the cause of your understeer problem. 0.5mm under both rear blocks (xa/d is what I run there), 3mm under the camber link on the hub side, and 4mm on the bulkhead side (aka the base asphalt setup)

The camber links are the turnbuckles front and rear that you adjust the camber of the wheels with. The amount of spacers under the ball screws they connect to determines the roll centre

Default Ok

So are you saying that a C/C front combo offers more grip than 1C/1C ?
And the 4mm under the rear inner link will give less grip than 3mm ?

base asphalt set up with softer springs and no rear roll bar and 40 oil in the shocks , slightly longer wheel base and 1XA 1D rear ,

car feels good but not as planted as my mates Xray 009 and i want it too and know it can ... i need this half second a lap

What speedo you running? I run the SPX and I run between 100 to 102 to get the gearing I need for my 13.5

The SPX on profile 7 need far less gear that he would use on the Speed Passion.
Thing is , track size and type determine gear more than speed controls.
Its best to take a conservative guess and check motor temps after 2 mins.
The car comes with a 105 tooth and thats not bad either.
4.8 or 5.0 would be a good start for a 100 foot straight. Divide that by the internal and the spur gear and that will get you in the ball park.
So whats that like a 105/45=4.79. But thats no good for a tight sticky track. you would less gear for it but the 105 should put you in the hunt for that speed control. The SPX ramps up the timing and I would have something like a 108/34=6.53 for a big track.

Only you can prevent forest fires.

Don't be a DICK!
Apparently sarcasm doesn't convert well in typing.
I am only trying to help what ever person to the best of my ability.
And not knowing which moron is playing games here to waste my time is not what these forums are about. Think about that one for a while okay ?!
