Hi CoreyW, you stated that your setup and Ronald's are basicly same except front springs at IIC. Is it also the case with your droop settings?

Well I tried some of those setups. But none helped with the back end stepping out. What really helped out was raising the rear inner camber link with 2mm shims. That tightened the back end a lot. With that problem solved I can now work on gaining some steering back. Gonna start back with Team Yokomo Basic carpet setup, but with 2mm rear link shim and go from there. Feels good to finally get a "grip" on things.... pun intended...

I didn't like what I had because I was just trying anything to get rid of the back end from coming around. For the main I tried the 2mm rear camber link shim and it worked, but I had some push at certain parts of the track. Next weekend I'll get a setup posted for sure since I know what the car needs to keep the back end planted. Just start with Volker's Basic Indoor Setup or the Basic Carpet Setup posted on TeamYokomo website. Then change rear inner camber link to 2mm shim. Go from there. This will be my starting setup for next weekend.

Hardman's setup may even work with this change. Worth a try for those with the rear end traction problem.

Nearly identical - we were running a little less rear droop(.5mm). Rebound would be the only other difference(+/- 10%) but again, nearly identical.

I did this past weekend. I ran it with 2.5M diff lube. It tamed the car down a little but I was fighting the rear end looseness all day long till the main. So I cannot comment too much on it. I'm gonna run it some more this weekend once I get a good setup and then compare it to a spool.

It calms the steering down a lot so you can look at it from different shaded glasses. It dulls the steering and responsiveness, OR, it makes the car calmer and easier to drive. You definitely loose a good bit of forward traction out of the sharp and slow corners that lead into a straight.

I've been running a front diff on carpet and a spool outdoors, but the lap times are very close between the two. If I had to pick one, I like the spool all around, its harder to drive but is faster especially as you move to higher powered motors.
