Arm sweep and anti-dive / anti-squat are two settings I've literally never tried, but wondered about.

I think I heard one of the fast local guys say he was using anti-dive to keep the front end up a bit more and maybe a little flatter on corner entry, and then some arm sweep to get back some of the steering he lost from the anti-dive.

I've always thought it was really curious that the Cyclone TC and TCX always have arm sweep in the stock setup, but most cars don't.

Need a little help with my setup guys. Car drives great except it gets a little loose in the rear through the corners. From about the apex to exit. If I give it a little throttle it does okay but it still slides a little. I'd like to eliminate the sliding around its doing.

A screen shot of my setup is the best i can do

Robert,
Let me know what ya need, I might be able to help and most everyone at the track is pretty good about helping keep others going when parts break.

There are a number of things I might try:

Lighter oil in your gear diff: 32.5 or 30

More rear toe in: 2.5 or 3.0 degrees

Less caster: 4 deg

More droop: 6/5

Higher rear ride height: 5.2/5.4 mm

Hope some of this helps!

Rear toe at least 3 deg
I would try the 2B position for your rear shocks.
Try either 3A or 7A for your camber link
Try removing roll bar.

Looks like you have 0 toe in on the rear add 2-3 degrees toe in on the rear arm mount.
