I'd start here...


With some minor changes--
30w oil front and rear
Use the softest springs you own front and rear
Eliminate droop and raise ride height to 8mm so the chassis rolls
Inner camber link height, set both to 2mm

One thing to consider, where are you losing grip? Entering a corner or exiting a corner? Springs control weight transfer. Figure out where and when you are losing grip and adjust your springs accordingly.

Car Is Normaly Loose From The Center Out. Im Going to Get AE Springs And Put Green Rears and Silver Fronts. i got to find out what Shock Pistions Fit These Shocks. Looks Like Tamiya ones do. but not 100% on that. I ended up Striping the Car Clear Down after i Found out there was some HUGE TWEEK in it. Working on Geting it Put Back Togather..

Thanks again..
