your exactly right BD.....the inside turning wheel gains positive camber, and the outside turning wheel gains negative camber, except at 0 caster, and the more caster you have the bigger the gains are, thats what causes the wheel weight changes I mentioned earlier......Jason W has some things to add to all this about why more caster can cause a push, I think he will probably get it posted tonite

Oh, you are absolutely correct there Gary- there is a point of diminishing returns where too much caster begins to put the outside tire on the inside edge no matter how far the chassis rolls in the turn. Hence the reason tuning a car means finding an overall combination and not just one thing or the other.

Todge- My feelings are getting hurt since you haven't talked any smack back to me!!

Its good to hear it works so well. I got one waiting for me at the hobby shop, can't wait to try it out and get back to kit spec with no modding.

Question on the Skoda II...

I've heard it handles "squirly" (no rear downforce)

Now is this a "Stratus" squirly or an "out-of-control" squirly

Basically, How does it compare to a Stratus I or II?

And: Do all the early JRX-S kits have the mixed up rear hub carriers? Or could I get lucky?

On the new ones, there is the TL logo above the 0 deg marking...

I am not sure what you are talking about? Did I miss something?

I wouldn't say the body lacks rear downforce at all. I would say that many of the Skoda II bodies were mounted up on the JRX-S with the kit stock set up that many (at least locally) found to be lacking a little in the rear traction department. So perhaps it wasn't the body that was squirly, just the kit set up.

I made some changes to my set up, kept the Skoda II the same, and suddenly I had all the rear traction I wanted.

A couple of the people around here ended up with the slightly off rear hubs, including me, but you might get lucky. And if you don't get lucky, free replacements are just an email away.

Thanks Darkseid....Guess I won't hand the body off to an un-suspecting dad (which what I was gonna do if you guys said the Skoda sucked) LOL...I wouldn't do that

I hope I get the right hubs....I'm too impatient to wait for Losi to send me some and too poor to buy new ones
