Default How to..

How would i go about reducing "push" (like when you go into the corner and it doesnt steer well, i think thats what it is called). It is a TC3 i've got battery all the way to the front. What else could i do?

Make sure the front end of your car isnt picking up off the ground and to make sure of this get longer shocks.Or it could be that your tires arnt getting enough grip if you think they dont just get a softer compound(use the same kind tires that the fast guys are using).Or it could be your set up ask around and find a set up that suits your style.

Is the car pushing at speed or off-power.. The difference in set-up changes to correct the two are like night and day. If you need help the more info you give us the better we can help you.

For example to cure an on-power push you may want softer oil and or springs, while for an off-power push you could need stiffer oil/springs.....

Meanwhile if the car pushes everywhere then you will most definately have a tire or damage problem.

Mess around with the springs. AE just came out with a spring set that has all 9 of them ($32 i think).

change them around and experiment. Spend a few hours in the parking lot trying out different combos. Just change one at a time going up or down only one spring weight. I run gold in the front and green in the rear. It just depends on your driving style and what you are driving on.
