Thanks for the answer Mike. I figured that milling would be done.

Do you have any recommend starting roll out for the 19t QM from Reedy? Track is a little tight but flowing. 80'x50'.

We talked about this, and I don't think this is the preferred method. You're getting anti-dive, but you're also changing the car's roll center in the wrong direction by raising the back support. I don't think it has the same effect.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

As far as I know, you're right, as I think doing the opposite to the front roll center than the rear, you create too much of a difference between the roll centers.

I need some help, my car lifts up the rear inside tire on all tight 90 degree + turns, it is worse on left turns then rights. The car is real stable, maybe even on the push side on high speed sweepers. I have checked tweak and had others double check me.
Setup:
FRONT
plaids, rear tower, 4 degree blocks, f-0,70wt oil, 5mm ride ht.,purple springs
REAR
purple,losi rear tower,F block,3+2, 50wt oil,0 degree losi hubs,copper springs,5mm ride ht.
I have set my droop the way you posted earlier, and with a droop gauge and I was not happy with the car. Any suggestions would be great

jwill,

I'm not mike but one thing I'd suggest is get that Losi tower off the rear and get the shocks more laid down. That should help.

rcracingkid.. Futureal is correct. When we tried this we actually gained more steering getting in the corner. Seems it is very touch here.. I do not recommend trying this... I know i lost a good .1-.2 doing this...


JSJ Racing .. I do not have the rollout chart in front of me but i would run somewhere between .. 37-42 /100 with a 2.25-2.28 tire... My rule of thumb is every .060 of tire wear i go up one tooth.. Some people do it different but for me it works well



AE-Off-Road Guy.. Thanks man.. Look up for the info ...


lowline... No problem.. If we all learn something is all that matters.. I know i have received some good tips to try from people on here also....

Speedo.. CORRECT... I agree with you 100%

jwillman74w.. do you have to run 5mm ride height??? Here is something i did that helped with this.. Try putting a .030 shim under the front and rear shock tower.. I would also take some front and rear camber out .. Go to 1 deg ... The biggest problem with not seeing your car. I do not know if it is lifting from the front or the rear.. This would help alot if you know ... Also at the snowbirds i had a similar thing happening.. But as soon as i made the car stay flat . I lost 2 tenths on the track. So i went right back to the lifting car.. Also if you can run lower ride height try 4mm all the way around.. Give me some more info on camber links etc.. I am sure we can get you in the right direction...
