I run a 9x1 on a tight technical track, there are two flat out 90 degree left hand corners one after the other that I beleive are causing the excessive wear. Does this sound normal for rubbers? My setup is as follows:

Front
5mm ride hight
2mm droop
2 deg caster<<<<<<<<try -1.5deg >>>>>>>>
0 deg kickup
1deg toe out
-0.5 deg camber????????????????????
Roll centre 1-1
Camber link top row 2nd hole from left
1.3 pistons, 17Lb spring, 40WT oil.
Shock outer hole on arm, 2nd hole in on tower.
No anti-roll bar.

What to do next?

Any help appreciated

I think Jeff Brown posted something about some new products from Specialized RC coming at the beginning of the year. Any word on "what" it is and "when" it will be here?

Try moving to 4 deg of caster, give narrow hex's a try too. It made my car much more responsive and alot freer through the middle of the corners.

what would the differences be from going from 4 degree caster blocks to 2 degree blocks?

2 deg caster will give you more initial steering. Car will feel more reactive. 4 deg caster or more will help mid to exit on the corners with more on power steering and finish better.
