front n rear use longer wheelbase...it's does give little more steering in some track...

use softer gdiff oil for more low speed steering...or thicker for high speed steering...

thx for the tips guys. i actually shortened the wheelbase in the front to get more steering. couldnt imagine why this would take away steering as it is supposed to make the car more aggressive. will revert the front wheelbase to standard kit position.

concerning the gear diff oil: i am using 1000cst oil but since there is always a little leaking, i would think the gear diff in the back, runs quite "smoothly". i will try a little softer oil like a 800 oder 700. our tracks here are usually not very high grip as they are a little dusty most of the time.

will report back after the weekend, after testing some more. hopefully the weather holds up

i run the yokomo gear diff. the green slime is already ordered but has not arrived yet, will do that to the o-ring too to stop leaking.

maybe i will also try the good old balldiff, if it fits the conditions here better than the gear diff.

I ran sore 36 with tweak additive was on warmer for fifteen minutes and I had too much steering. maybe you could give that a go, also you could try moving the rear wing forward what body are you using?

sofar no new results. have to wait for the weekend to put some practice sessions in if the weather stays good.

@defcone: i am currently using the profoform mazda6. i tried the speed 6 but it had less steering in my opinion. i will try the ltc-r which should give a good amount of steering.

as for the additive, i will try to get some tiretweak for the weekend.

Hello, this my setup for last weekend, at 1rd of National Race, the car work very good, in extremely hot weekend, i make TQ and finally 2.

I need some tip, because only work with new tyres, with hot conditions and used tyres not work at all, the performance go down for about 0.4 - 0.6 s.

Is in low resolution format.

Regards, Luis C.

Ha! Tell me about it! Mine is the same. As soon as the track temperature rises, my car turns to #$%^. Back rotates no matter what you change on it.

Maybe these BD5's just dont like hot weather and tires more than 5 laps old, lol. Absolutely pissing me off.
