Default Suspension Tuning with Turnbuckles

Test vehicle: Thunder Tiger Sparrowhawk VX. Vintage Trans Am Class

Steering test 1: 1st picture. With the stock setup as shown in the picture the inside tire turns less than the outside cousing a understeer or pushing in corners, but gave a consistent predictable feel.

Steering test 2: 1st picture (red circles). Using short turnbuckles in the 2nd hole circled in red. The inside tire turned more than the outside. Giving the car a tighter turning radius, but a inconsistent unpredictable fell when the steering would reach full, or very close to full turn.

I liked the steering better in test 2. My cure for the inconsistent feel around full turn was to limit the EPA's just a bit.

Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions on turning?

Rear suspension test 3: Not done yet

Front suspention test 4: Not done yet

Would like to hear thoughts on the effects of using different length turnbuckles on the front and rear in different holes (red circles in picture 2 and 3) Please keep it simple.

Thanks, KBorg.
