Either Schumacher direct or Rw gears work great

I see in the set up sheet in the back of the manual it says the doop is measured while on a 10 mm block. What point are you guys meauring from with this car? The bottom outside of the wish bone?

I measure under the rear hub carrier and under the front castor block.

I ran my Mi4 for the first time outdoors yesterday (and first time really overall)

Car was very twitchy, handled awful. I was loosing over a second per lap on the top 10 , by the end of the day noly .5 seconds per lap.

I started with one of the Brit team drivers setups (C Grainger / West London).

I have attached my setup sheet to have a look at to, this is the final setup I ended up on.

The car itself just had no real turn in, drifted and pushed out bad on power, would turn in sharp off power and then the backend would go loose.

I was tempted to put harder springs on the front, but not sure if this would have only made things worse heating the front up further, so making the car push even more.

Any advice is welcomed

It sounds like the rear of the car is stuck. I have found laying down the rear shocks frees the rear up and lets it rotate the corner.

Is anyone running Sweep on the front of the car? if so how much and why did you put this sweep on?

main reason i ask, is I am struggling with getting the car to enter the corner quicker - its like trying to turn a bus. Corner exit is lovely, but entry is just very slow.

Will some sweep help get a bit more entry?
