You didn't mention your T-bar thickness. A thicker T-bar will give you a little more steering by reducing your rear bite slightly. How about damper tube lube? How thick? That will also have an effect on steering to a lesser degree.

OK, Tony,
Looks like you are on the right track. Have you tried magenta or Parma violet front tires? I've noticed that purple fronts tend to glaze after a while and start to push like a dump truck.
You may want to try moving the batteries around a bit also.

D.P.

Tim,
Is this the one you are thinking of? We redesigned the top pod plate since this pic was taken to make putting a brushless motor in easier.

For the time being, the MAX10 top and bottom pod plates are based on the stock AE parts. Inexpensive, plentiful and lower bulkheads aren't necessary in Pro10 anyway.
