Weight is being transferred on and off power. Since this is a rwd car, when you let off the throttle, you don't want the weight to go front wheels.. if it does, the rear will lose traction.. that's why you need no droop in front and lots of droop in the rear (corrected)

Are you sure? I thought front droop transferred weight to the back on power, rear droop transfers weight to the front off power. So I would want no rear droop and lots of front droop?

You're telling me the opposite?

You are right, there should be maximum front droop (weight can transfer back upon acceleration, for on power understeer. You can tune this out if you're a fast wheeler).
And there should be minimal rear droop so that weight doesn't transfer forward when you're braking.

Sorry about that.. I had my add / remove droop backwards.

Basically when you pick up the front, the suspension should not go down bellow your ride hide setting .. eg lots of droop

When you pick up the rear, your suspension should go down plenty .. no droop

Now you've got it backwards. Lots of droop = suspension drops a bunch when the chassis is lifted.

Clearly I have difficulties describing droop lol. That's what I thought.. when the suspension drops a lot it is drooping.

But then you hear that the track increase your droop by half a turn in the front, decrease your droop etc. If you turn the droop screw half a turn clock wise, you reduce the suspensions down play motion lol.

Default LESS Oversteer

To limit the Oversteer on this chassis:
-use the Longest Wheelbase
-set-up the least Droop in the Rear
-use 50 to 55-weight Shock Fluid in the Rear
-Soft(Red) Spring in the Rear
-2-Hole Shock Piston in the Rear
-1st Hole in Rear Shock Tower

-30 to 40-weight Shock Fluid in the Front
-Hard(Blue) Spring in the Front
-3-Hole Shock Piston in the Front
-4th Hole in Front Shock Tower

-place battery in the Rear

For those who are interested, raced against M03's and M05's, I qualified 4th with my M06. Was fun trying to catch these guys. My M06 weight wise was much more the the first three cars, which probably was a disadvantage, but the car handled great.
