I have the same problem with my car's turning. Corner entry, NO problem at all, but it pushes like hell on power out of the turns. I'm running 6 degrees up front, but I notice a lot of guys are moving to 4 and even 3.

Running rubber?

Try front anti-dive w/ 4* castor... works for me...

Default foams

I'm having the same problem running foams.
4 degree Chubs.
car wants to push on mid.
i put 1mm wheel spacers in front and back which made the car feel a bit more neutral.

should i try changing my antidive/kickup? is so up on the front or down..
the car handles entry and exit just fine.

I belive you are right there about two sizes. I measured up a few different outer hinge pins I had laying around and found two distinct sizes.

The set that came on the car and was free without slop in the 75 arms was 2.32 mm. THey were free even when used with both e-clips and set screw.

The set that I bought recently to replace some bent and broken pins measured 2.36 mm. These rotate with some resistance in the arms. I wish they were big enough to chuck in my dremel. I could just take some sand paper to them so get them to work perfect. Oh, well. At least I know now.

Maybe try 1 to 1-1/2 mm more rear droop - allows more weight transfer to the front.

60wt front shock oil / 40-45wt rear shock oil w/ foams.

also take 1-mm droop out of the front - which stops weight transfer to the rear on power...

Try it - you might like it!

I'm running on foams.

I'm not convinced it's not my driving that's the issue, but at my current skill level, it feels like the car turns really well during entry, and pushes like mad on exit.
