Have you figured out they fitment issues with the RaySpeed Unis?
I have been told that the corally bones on the rayspeed axles works, the measurements look good. I have not tried it so I can't confirm that it works for sure.

I used to use Corally bones on my BD back in the day with RaySpeed axles. I mainly used them because I could switch to steel bones up front with a spool. Let me dig up some pics....

Well, nevermind, don't quote me on it, I can't find the pics... haha. I'd have to ask the guy whom I sold my BD to.

the rayspeed bones are 48.2mm and the corally are 50.2mm, i actually fitted them to the CVD coupling/pin on the rayspeed axle and its a PERFECT fit! So now you have an option to get a replacement bone if you bend one! unfortunately the Corally aluminum bones are $22/pair

Front universal joints part# SD-010FC

I just used a drill blank to replace the universal pin and it has been super reliable even in mod....

I used to run HB/HPI axles and steel Corally bones on my 415 a few years back.

Rear droop, let the rear arms hang down more. Try some Ackermann settings. Move the inner steering links back on the steering plate. You can play with pro-squat in the rear. Or shorten wheel base to try and get the car to rotate a little more.

Is this with spool? Is it midcorner? Or entry?

thanks for the tips Jimmy, it is with a spool yes. The push is corner exit only!

I will try the pro-squat in the rear and adding more rear droop. I was suggested 1.5mm over ride height.

Actually, they may not help if it's exit steering you are looking for. That would only help with steering going in. Maybe Ackermann might help, but that would effect steering all around. Instead, I would try less droop up front (arms hang down less). This lets less weight transfer to the rear when you are on power out of a turn. Maybe drop 1mm on the front inner camber link. Maybe a stiffer rear swaybar? Is your rear diff too loose?

the rear diff is fresh, i'll try 1.5mm rear droop and shimming my camber link ball studs. If it still pushes then pro-squat it is, and if its still pushing I dont know? stiffer rear spring?
