This helped the overall steering, and it was a similar change to using narrow wheel hexes, which I didn't own.

I also knew some Serpent team drivers that preferred to run no arm sweep at all, which gives you more entry steering but less mid and exit steering.
do i need a narrower rear too..? i tried running 1* front 1* rear toe blocks before but the arms cannot be moved backward (short wheelbase)... however, i try from default setting again with only ankermann + 2* + 0* toe blocks n 1mm shorter front n 1mm shorter rear wheelbase again... (maybe plus narrower hexes)...

thanks guys...
There are more in racing than winning.

No, I left the rear the same width. I also left the wheel base the same as stock.
