Default Need help on reducing the left and right turn differences in shaft drive

Any suggestion on how to make the car turn both side as equally as possible.

Thanks.

I just did this on my tc3, first center your servo and have neutral radio settings. Then put the horn on as straight as possible and tighten it on. then set your link for steering throw to the rack. The wheels should be straight after this step. Then try it out and adjust for torque steer oin the trims. U should also tweak your car for even weight transfer from side to side and front to back. Make sure camber and toe settings are even on both sides.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Another thing, some people in the track mention using different droop setting on left and right side of the car. I don't understand why they use that to dial out the difference radius.

Any suggestion on this.

I never do that, it upsets the way the car feels from corner to corner, its not the same when u have different settings.

Another thing, how can I balance the car for front and rear.

I can use the tweak station to balace out left and right. But I don't know how to balance the car front and rear.

Use a set of weight scales. grams is the setting i use to get it pretty close to dead on. the tweak station is fine. Just set your ride height at 5 mm or what ever u choose first, then tweak from there
