theres a couple things you could do , first off id lower the diff and is there a reason your runnin such a difference in shock oil front to back? Because i find the car very easy to drive with 30 front and back. Other than that try some toe in on the front

I was thinking of using 42f on the front maybe that would help

here is my setup

I was studying the different setup sheets (ashpalt/rubber with low to mid traction and both running spools) that were posted on the Xray site and noted that each driver has his own way and I know that each has different driving style or track layout and traction, and I want to know the effect of doing so...

- adding spacer on the front hinge pin holder on the front bulkhead (arms sweeping forward) ?

-adding spacer between the steering block and steering rod?bumpsteer?

-using a Hard compound for the rear arms? reduce rear traction?

- using a soft compound for the front c-hub? increase front traction?

-using -1 wheel axle on the front and thus reducing front track width by 2 mm? car rotates better?

-using +1 wheel axle and thus increasing front track width by 2 mm?
-shock rebound of 30 % - 50 % ?


Thanks.

No, you have to remove the rear shock tower, and one bulkhead to do it, it is the one crappy design flaw of the 05.

I am in need of a new left rear bulkhead. Anyone need one of the other three bulkheads, as I may just buy the whole set and possibly sell the rest.
Thanks

Shark - check ebay, there is a guy breaking down kits and selling the bulkheads in pairs instead of full sets. Just search FK 05, make sure you put the space between the FK and the 05.
