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.

thanks for the help I had a few PMS about this and one guy mentioned removing the rear 2mm shim this did it I also ran the diff in the lower position

we were racing in snow today well just about and I was getting good traction on the FK05

the FK04 with CS27s with a 9t ti was like skateing with blunt blades

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.
