sounds to me like you have tweaked the chassis by not screwing the screws in sequences

try lossening all the top deck screws and place the chassis on a flat surface and tighten the screws from the inside out.

I checked my ride height thats fine 6 at the back 5 1/2 at the front.
Droop 3 mm front and back
I did not change anything at all except pulled down the front and back diff and cleaned and relubed them. I have checked the camber front and back and toe in and out and all exactly the same as they where before.
Is there anything I should check over that I am missing or have could the diffs be to tight or loose but I set them up right I think.

Also when I stop the car and try to do a full lock turn under power to the left the car pushes , but when I turn the car to the right and do a full lock and power the car does a donut easy with no pushing.
Really strange,is there a christmas gremlin in my car. Ha ha.
Any input would be great.
Thanks Guy
Addam

I am running 2mm washer under the link on the innside and only 0.5mm on the outside. This gives a nice balance and makes the rear end much more controllable.
The car is too loose in the rear. The entire front-end set-up I gave will help reduce weight transfer to the front and nullify any addl. steering gained by using spacers under the front block. Its not the "end all" to the the problem -just one of many tuning options. Reducing rear droop is the single most effective change, but not the only changed needed. You have to factor into the equation, the amount and speed of "roll" the rear end exhibits. Also the camber gain or lack there of. On another note, setting the front outboard toe to 0 degrees, will also help with having too much steering going in the turn.

The answer to your question is....Block XB (upside down with 3 x 3mm alum spacers - based from the MSX manual).

I cut PARMA CYAN to 26mm and left the rear MAGENTA 28mm. They worked great. I hope this helps.
