Thanx in advance
I havent bothered on any car since it must be said.

I think the best idea would be a set of carbon plates that mount where the shocks would fit, this means that the shocks & springs are removed from the equation and you are measuring purely corner weight.

This is the problem, there are no 'concrete' solutions.

I got rid of the forward motor conversion on my 009 for the exact reason you've given

Problem with my car.

Cars 'hooking' if i approach the corner at high speed (example after a straight) but it rotates slowly in slow approach corner. Rear ends just looses grip too if i blast the throttle a bit harder exiting a corner.

body?
wheel base?

I hope my explaination makes sense.. I'm not the best at explaining how my car reacts unless its really obvious... so here goes.

My '009 EU is setup up straight from the stock setup. It is fast and really turns well. I'm running 17.5 indoor carpet with rubber (jaco greens) on a low to medium traction surface. My only deviation from the setup is I back off the goop on the front tires from full to half on the inside. I've never had a car with a spool turn this well but it might be a tick loose. Also as I exit the corners and back on the throttle it tends to want to keep turning. None of this is very bad but it keeps me from running consistently lap after lap. So I guess maybe I just need to "tame" it down a little. Any suggestions?

Also how much would the rear diff play into this? The setup says loose to medium for tightness... how do you know what loose to medium is?

I consider my diff lose when I can spin one wheel and the other continues to spin for a split second. Or when the diff adjustment is tightened just beyond where it will slip under acceleration.
To address the lose on power situation you need to get the car to transfer more weight rearward on acceleration. I'd start with, softer rear springs or more front droop once you get your diff sorted out.

First thing I would do is ditch the rear anti-sway bar.

how long does your diff and thrust bearing last before you have to sand down & rebuild your diff on a T2 009.

any help would be greatly appreciated.
