Should I try L1&L2's all round again rather than the H's ? I use the L's on my indoor car and that seems to drive quite well. (the car does, I don't )

yes, that would give a steeper angle to the link giving more initial steering.

Bonadona just posted a boosted 10.5 set up for a Tekin on outdoor asphalt 1-5 pages back. Shouldn't be too hard to find.

I always run L at the rear, its way too stuck otherwise and no corner speed. On the front I usually run H with 1.5mm on the chub.

I just found out how important the link lengths and angles are to the set up, and have been playing with the option on my other car the last week. Very powerful adjustment.

I'd like to try with my Xray. I've got L on my car. In what way is the geometry different to the H? I still don't get it even after reading the Xray blurb.

H's are 1mm higher than the L's but both are the same length. In other words, imagine raising the inner pivot point (on the shock tower) up 1 mm. You'll have H's at that point.

This shows how convientent the new bulkhead clamps are. You can get the angle perfect because you have infinite adjustability at the C-Hub AND the inner pivot point.

Thanks for the info. I'll order a pair of H.

Just re-doing my car with the changes you suggested. I already have a 1mm shim on the C-hub ? I have 2mm under the steering block, did you mean change that to a 1mm ?

If I go back to a 3.0 or even to a 2.8 spring on the front won't the back be loose again off power

OK, your setup sheet shows 2mm on the c-hub

Yep 3.0 or 2.8 will give your front end more bite, but adding rear camber and standing the rear shocks up will help with the over-rotation. I find if the grip is at all low then laying the rear shocks down always make this car step out.
