Hey Guys. I was wondering what people do to get there cars to carry more speed in the corners? Do people turn up the throttle trim so it helps roll more in the corners.

It just seems like people eat me up in the corners and I tried a few things but nothing worked. I know its a deep question but does anyone have some tips to keep my car carrying speed in the corners? I guess it would be driving style. Any Suggestions on driving style.

Increasing throttle trim is one way of helping. But it would help us to give you better advice if we could see your entire setup. You can enter it in the online setup sheet section of the Xray forum here:

I noticed in the setup sheet section that when some of the guys running a spool on there Xray FK '05 touring cars they all run 0 degree caster blocks when running these blocks does it give the car more or less steering with the spool.and what is the reason for running these blocks

Decreased castor will help recover some the initial turn in lost by the locked up front end and reduce cvd deflection from the spool alowing for greater wheel turn before chatter begins.

yeah wheel chatter can be quite an issue especially if your on a very tight circuit and thats the type of circuit we would sometimes would run the 0 degree caster on the FK05, to counter entry understeer and usually with a little kickup on the front to help weight transfer also. The narrow axles work well to counter that problem as well.

Good result in the UK last weekend for the FK05 at the last BRCA Mod National. Darren Stlyes finishing 3rd in a really competitive field, car was working really well. Top 4 was

1st Chris Grainger - Yokomo
2nd Craig Drescher - Associated
3rd Darren Stlyles - Xray FK05
4th Andy Moore - Hotbodies Cyclone
