"0.5-1 spacers under suspension blocks" - can you be more specific as to which shims under which block? FF/FR and RF/RR

Also those springs are very soft if they are Tamiya springs. It's hard to generalise not having seen your track but your car may be over rotating because of the soft springs.

Shims under the block equal both Ff-fr ,rf-rr
0.5/0.5 on front of the car
1/1 rear of the car
springs are good point I've switched to xray 2.8-2.6 springs which we were using on same track even more grippy conditions car was better but another drive shaft pin failure ended my day
but car was defenately over rotating
and which way should I go to calm down steering
forgot to say 1 degree front toe-out! It sounds a bit too much now ...
that was from my xray setup LOL
cheers

Also adjust your total steering throw and expo this will take the twitch out of the car.

Syndromes setup from Vegas is a good start but that was a bigger, high traction track.

You might try XA/E or even XA/F in the rear. I'd also lose the shims under the rear blocks and try blue/yellow springs. Maybe some more camber all around, too. If that's too stuck, which it may be, you can start backing those changes out one at a time to find the right combination of speed and drivability.

If the car seems like it gets on the nose too much off power, don't be afraid to try a little anti-dive by sliding a .5mm shim under the front rear block.

our old one was smaller LOL

but it looks like there is no grip

i would ,

600 oil front
blue front springs
500 oil rear
yellow rear springs
front camber 2.0 rear 2.5
1c 1c front blocks
1xa 1f rear blocks
0.5mm spacer under front/front block
1.0mm spacer under front/rear block
no speacers under rear blocks
0.5mm wheel spacers on rear wheels hex
1mm wheel spacers on front wheels hex
0 degrees front toe , makes the car more settled

do you run any extra weight ?? if so is it front or rear ??
if it is at the rear i would move it forward , believe it or not more weight rear makes the cae rotate faster , as there is more weight to transfer

see what you think

with new sweep x1 additive we have much more grip than that...
cars 1350 grams so no extra weight but lipo pack pushed out from chassis to balance the car...
I pushed speedo(rspro) and sr3001 spectrum Rx to max forward position...
I should add more camber to the front 1.5 to 2
front toe out 1 to 0.5
firmer springs white blue or xray 2.8/2.6
how about ankerman? 4mm to 2mm is that calms down steering?
thanx again to all

Your track is as small and technical as ours.

I have run the xray spring combo you mention and thought it helped.

I also run the spacers under the rear bridges like you as well, it seems to help the car thru the very hard tight corners.

I prefer the lighter oil as the heavier just seem to create a push thru the high speed corners.

I would run more ackerman 5 or 5.5, I would also add 1mm spacer to the hex. The c/c front would help as well.

Hope this helps.

You do with what you have, its better than nothing.

Ours is about the same, but its available 24/7 so you tend to put in a lot of laps.
