Default Funny Steve Story (at least now I think its funny)

When I lived in AZ I rode a motorcycle. My wife had a car but she worked nights sometimes so I had to plan when I wanted to race. So one day I decided that I would put all my race stuff in a duffel bag, throw it on my back and ride my bike to the track. I knew Rudy had an extra pit table so I posted on Tech Talk and asked him to bring it. Later I saw him reply that it was no problem. So...after work I hop on my bike for a Friday night race. I get to the track and ask Rudy where the table is. He said what table?

Turns out Steve had seen my post, logged on as Rudy and replied to me...but He never told Rudy to bring the table!

Nope...A very nice racer who I had never met before let me use a corner of the fold out kiddy picnic table he was pitting on.

Default Sorry-something serious

Steve-hypothetical racing situation.

Youve arrived at a high bite carpet/foam race. YOur XXXS base set-up feels good, but car wont initiate turn in as aggresively as youd like, but all else feels good. In 12th terminology-I guess youd say it doesnt have enough cut. The feelings is sort of that front end actually isnt taking a set-it just stays up. Once its turned i t carves a fast smooth line in sweepers. IN chicanes and s-turns-its slugish to change direction then turns hard (maybe from too much steering input to compensate for lack of turn in).

What of these choices would be near the top of your list to solve this:

Add Toe-out
try antidive with more caster
More caster alone
Softer front spring or oil.
Raise ballstud on top of caster block.
Raise ballstud on rear hub.
Shorten front camber link.
Harder rear tire or harder front tire.
More dual rate.
Lower rear roll center.
Reduce rebound in frnt shocks?

Thanks Steve,
Ray
