Interesting, I might give it a shot. I cant go lower than 1 degree in the rear. Earlier when I tried it, I found that the rear became unstable... But that was with another setup...

Thanks, dontfeelcold. Seems like I have several options to try out... Good, because when a change correct a problem, often a new one come up... Always a trade off !

Last night I had the chance to go to the track alone. Did some effective testing....

I started out with 8 degree castor. That helped a lot.

Then I tried softning the rear, by making the shocks more laydown at the top. That was bad ! The rear end seemed to be every where else than it was supposed to, it slided out a lot. So I tried raising them instead. It was a step forward, but the car wasn't stable enough. So I set the shocks back in stock position.

Next thing was to stiffen up the chassis, by mounting a joint between lower and upper deck. Now it was closer to a controlled rear. I mounted another joint, now it was close, but the rear still wanted to slide out.

I mounted a front sway bar (stiffest), and the rear was tamed.

But somehow the car was unstable. Found out that a wheel was broken. Mounted some similar tires, but with harder inserts. The car was very good, but at first I felt quite understeering. Changed driving style (more throttle work) and the car was incredible fast. It now changes direction very quickly and yet it's very stable.

I got some nice Fukuyama packs, and the car is an insane driving machine now. Cant wait for the race on sunday....

Thanks for all your suggestions, it was good inspiration.

hi cole trickle

thanks for the setup, are you racing on carpet? or asphalt?

it there anyways to decrease pro2 caster below 8 degrees?
I am running 0" kick up right now, and the car tend to slide out at the limit, but heavily understeer in mid-speed ( especially hairpin turn) can't keep up with xray, tc3 once get into the corner.

I have to go slow in, fast out but the others (tc3, xray, yoke...) can go mid-speed in and fast out, and they seems to have a lot of steering in the corner too. where I have none. I have to go but I will post my setup later.

thanks guys
