Good racing with you Kenny this weekend at Jackson. I was on the move in the "B" Main. Up to 2nd from 6th and chasing down 1st. Don't know what happen to make the car go to the barrier. $115 of damage on the car.
My car setup is posted on petitrc.com

What settings in general would you change to get some turnin under braking on asphalt? both my cars were washing out pretty bad, I'm not sure if the front needs to be stiffer or softer.

Don't get me wrong Schumacher car is awesome just a little sensitive on different track surface. The chassis balance of the E4 makes it really easy to drive specially on MOD. If you guys haven't drive one you guys will be surprise how the car transition left to right specially on a swipper and high speed corners.

Owen,

I will send my E4 to you to be blacked out....

Both cars are setup a little different, what is similar is the shock oil/pistons, both are running like 50/40 with 3 hole pistons. The rubber car had blue springs up front, white rear, the rcgt had white/hpi silver. Rubber car has short front Med arms, long rear med, stiff chassis, soft top deck, the RCGT has long c/f arms all around, noodle FRP chassis with thick top deck. Rubber car has front gold sway bar only, rcgt car had none. The pins were level, 1mm roll center front, 2mm rear, about 3dg rear toe, 1dg front sweep, etc.

It didn't sound like the front was scraping on the ground under braking, which I know can unsettle it, I feel like it need to transfer some more weight so it unloads the rear and it drifts around abit, the cars were both pretty planted.

There's lots to try:

Run more rear droop
Take off the swaybar
Run Stiffer rear springs
Run some toe out in the front
Run more coast brake

Try thoses for a start...

Here is a vid of the last qual, to me it looks like the car doesn't rotate mid corner enough, I'm sure part of it is driving and well sorry whoever that was that I plowed in the sweeper, but apparently they brake more than I do The car was getting tippy this run which is why I flipped anytime I hit the curbs..
