im running a completely off the wall set up that i actually was successful with at out first state series race here, im running 25 wt oil all the way around and 14.5 front springs and 12.5 rear springs, car is super soft but with my high roll centers the car doesnt move around alot.

RDXracerboy, you will find one of the most useful adjustments you can make is with droop, it will completely change how the car enters and exits the corners. if you need any help at superior, ill be there, you wont miss my car on the track, bright yellow and orange faded down the middle

Did you try making a slot in it with a dremel and using a flathead to get it out?

Another thing I'm wondering is can the back being loose be caused by a too tight front diff and loose rear diff? Because it also could be that when I rebuilt them I might of not got the tightness right...? How tight should they be? This is a little gray area for me that I'm not sure about.

I would probably take the layshaft and bulkhead off of the car, try to hold the screw with a driver, and just try to unscrew the layshaft off...?

just grab ur layshaft with a pair of pliers softly and turn it off, ive had to do this in the past, then just get another screw for it, or you can be lazy like me and just keep the stripped one and use pliers for a few months, lol, its an old wheel screw from the old C4 and C4.1

anything can cause these cars to be loose, what are you using for difflube when you build ur diffs and how much are you using?
