Thanks, is this the same theory for the rear also. Im running a short link now with a 2mm shim under the hub carrier. I forgot to mention that Im running anti dive in the front. Mid in the front and lower in the rear on the front of the car. Once again thanks for any help.

For the front arms, if you are using the middle holes for the forward suspension holders and the lower holes for the rearward suspension holders, then you are actually using "kickup" a.k.a. "pro-dive" which speeds up the steering response. It is normally used to soak up bumps better as well. I would suppose that using longer links could be used with kickup to smooth out the steering response while soaking up bumps better. Longer links will also lessen the amount of camber gain on the tires when the front end rolls.

I believe the same is true for the rear. Longer links normally means a more stable and forgiving rear end to abrupt steering inputs.

If I dont use the kick up the car seems twitchy ( touchy), what Im looking for is a way to keep the rear end planted and stop the car from spinning out. I tried stiffer springs (25) but it seems to make it more touchy. I thought about going from 22.5 to 20 but was afraid of traction roll.

Where in the corner and how exactly is the car spinning out? It sounds like your describing (twitchy) an imbalance in dampening from front to rear. How many holes are open in the front and rear shocks? You might try closing one hole in the front shocks and see if the car is more stable when you quickly flick it left/right/left/right.

I'm thinking that maybe the kickup is allowing the entire front end to dive and take more time for the weight to be transferred forward. In effect its slowing down the initial steering up front and allowing the rear end to catch up and not become unloaded.

I need to know how to pick up more mid corner steering. I like the turn going in and I like how it comes off the corner. The only problem I have is a slight push when picking up the throttle mid corner. I don't want to lose traction on exit and I really don't want the car to turn in harder it's just that split second mid corner when you first pick up the throttle. Someone suggested shortening up the front camber links to give more camber change for more mid corner steering. Does that sound right or is there a better adjustment first?

if your still using the stok springs you could change the springs to light blues in the front and whites in the back that should give u the steering you need

try it, then do the opposite and lengthen the front camber link past where you have it now and let us know what happens.
