Raise the rollcenters in the front and rear by 0.5mm this increase cornerspeed.
Harder spring in front might help as well.

jilles, do you mean lower the inside camber links by 0.5mm ?

thanks!

He has said before that he rarely changes the upper links, and will only add the extra 0.5 to the lower arm mounts.

Have you ever used the new separate TA05 suspension arm mounts? Is it possible to use this on the 416WE? The 416 and 416WE have 2 additional holes that appear to allow this to be mounted up. Perhaps with the closer 2 holes the suspension mount would bend less in a collision? Let me know if you think this is a good idea...

I don't know if Jilles was running them, but a few of the team were at the last ETS.
you can just see them mounted on the rear of the car here, in the bottom right

Got a question on this comment from you.....

"Most of the time I use the old 416 chassis, sometimes the WE chassis. WE is easier to drive but less steering then the old chassis. In general 90% we use the old 2.25 chassis."

I thought for the WE chassis, the battery position sits more to the front and should be more steering compared to the old chassis...at least i think that most tamiya guys around here is marketing the 416WE that way...
When I received my 416 WE in January I compared the main chassis plate stiffness to a 416 plate and i found that my WE plate was about 10 -20 % softer, that is according to my non-scientific lab test

You could try a bit sweep on the front running D (FF) and C (FR) blocks + add a 0.5 mm shim under the C block.

Jilles....what servo brand/model are you using in the 416?

Also, do you run your steering lock to lock from left to right? If not, how do you determine if your steering is even from left to right?

Apparently, there are 2 types, one can while the other can't. We can't adjust on those bought off the shelf (we're using 11.5t & 10.5t) but you can on some hand out motors (TITC & KLGP).

Hope this helps.
