Default Mi3,5 More steering, how?

i got a Schumacher Mi3,5 with a slight problem. The car runs incredibly stable and really smooth in high speed turns and on the straight but when it comes to tight slow turns it lack turn-in off power. It pulls really good out of turn (as i use front spool) but as i said it lacks turn it off power. any ideas?

And btw, i'm running outdoor asphalt with sorex tires a 13t motor. The body is the xeed/orcan audi A5 (have tried other bodies but it doesn't seem to help.

Softer front swaybar, stiffer rear bar, softer front springs, stiffer rear springs. Try as single changes or combos but make one change at a time.

More tire dope???? What surface are you running? Caster blocks? remove that front sway bar! If you have a rear bar on I would try with out that too. In my opinion Don't run them unless you have to. Try changing shock positions. Last and final resort.....get rid of the shoeeeeey! LOL

It can be difficult to get the car to transition well without feeling loose, but in general things to try are, standing up the rear shocks, raising the front roll center, adding front arm sweep (put .5-1mm shim on the front block of the arm mounts), and try different ackerman arms, these will vary depending on your driving preference, so just try them.
