hai martin, i've already try to reduce the rear toe from 3' to 2.5' and it can reduce my understeer problem but not completely gone, thanks a lot , and before i try another tips from u, my car get coallision very2 hard and broke my 4' C hub & knuckle into pieces .and the bad thing is my LHS doesn't have any spare of 4' C hub...my question is : if i'm using 2' C hub, do i have to change another set up or just plug and paly. thanks Martin.

That sucks...

If you use the 2 degree c hubs this will give you more initial turn in but less mid corner steering. You could add some spaces under the front hinge pin block at the front of the car to effectively add more caster back into the car to get back some mid corner steering. Start with a 0.7mm spacer then 1mm then 1.5mm and see what works.

It has been answered a few times now in this thread...

Both the MSX and the TA05 center pully has the same no of teeth (16).
The difference is the front and rear pullys, 35 vs 36 teeth
Gives 2.25 instead of the original 2.187

Arrow Spool Carpet Rubber Tyre Setup

Carpet season is basically over but if anyone's looking for some last thing to try you could try my MSX spool carpet setup. Works really well, easy to drive and stable as a spool car but really good steering. That's just my opinion though, would be interesting to hear another opinion of it. Setup is for rubber tyres.

Check out my blog for the setup. I'll try to be a more active posting stuff there that I find out from now on...

Direct link to setup is:

Too many things going on right now for me to run EP TC this summer. So I am selling it all and will get another TC come fall.

I know that reducing the wheelbase from the rear wishbones gives you more quicker steering but is this the same if reduce the wheelbase from the front, also i will be giving the rollbars ago, what are the noticeable differences in driving a car with rollbars when you haven't used them before?

Cheers, Charles.
