+1 to you ON leaving the steering in the 2b setting I set mine up like Bob had it and my steering was in a bind so I change it back to the standard setup and the car was good. This week I'm changing the shock oil to 45 in front 40 in rear since it will be 103* at the start of practice but by the time we run the mains it will be 11 pm and the airtemp will still be 90*.

Take a small piece out of the ball and then roll it into a thin rope and shove it into the gears make sure you get it into all the gears.

You may not have enough weight transfer to the rear when accelerating out of the corners. Add more droop to the front and go lighter on the front shock oil.
What settings are your arms at? Keep in mind that Rick's setup for NorCal is basically medium grip on a smooth outdoor surface. ( sometimes a bit dusty) If I recall correctly, the track down south has mad grip so you will need to be set up with less steering bias.
Less rear droop and more front droop will help. Like I've said before, it's all about weight transfer. You have to understand and control how the weight moves from front to rear (most important) and side to side. Once you get that sorted out, geometry and all the other changes will have a more obvious effect.

Yeah I was thinking about softening the rear, more front droop, or adding more rear camber. But it almost seems like the car is just diffing out on exit. I'm going to do some testing today to figure it out.

You have to place it a little bit at a time. it works out to about 75% of one plug. I weighed what I put in and it is about 3g.

I just bought a tc6.1 off of ebay. I have a fe sc trucks but this is my first on road.

It has the hpi vta spec tires on it. This means that its not set up for a 200mm body instead of 190mm correct? And if so will any 200mm body work and look right vta or something new?
