It doesn't sound like it's diffing out, but that could be it. I was contemplating changing the front inboard camber link, but that was before I got the BK arms. Suggestions?
If you're running any anti-dive or pro-squat take it out. I had the same feeling with my car when I was running either of them and when I went to flat pins front and rear and car was much better.

Yes Gary that setup does do that. I think it has to do with the high front roll center. I would switch to the #3.

#3 setup or #3 camber link hole up front?

Don't get me wrong, it's fast, I'm just always have to drive up on the wheel to steal a phrase from DW.

Ok, so the only difference between #2 and #3 are springs, pistons, oil, and anti-dive? I'm assuming you're going to hit Trackside with #3 on your car for the Novak race??

what is the first thing you should change from going to a track with mild grip to a track with high grip?

If you are talking about a foam setup for carpet; then, look at Chicky's #3 setup a few posts ago...Maybe previous page.

I know its very generic... but thicker oil, and glued tires .. perhaps stiffer spring... all would be on my mind- and not necessarily in that order.
