after some suggestions on shock oil for the shin edition

having a bit of trouble getting the rear to keep traction at certain corners at my track,

i race outdoors on asphalt, low traction and bumpy. previously tried 35wt on front and 30wt on rear, but with no luck.

Your weight seems about right how much rear toe are you running? You could try more toe or move the arms or rear hubs forward.

ive been running with 3 degrees of toe in, which i think is too much so might try running with a bit less. i might try the more droop but find it hard to get droop while maintaining ride height.

Yeah 3 is enough. Try moving the arms or hubs forward or give it about 1.5-2mm of uptravel over ride height.

use the medium length lower shock ends, and you'll have plenty of droop...

If you find that the rear ends steps out without warning and that the car is inconsistent because of that, I have experienced this problem last week end. Ultimately what cured it was to move the steering link position on the front hub to the rear. It changes the ackermann and smooths the steering action. I used the C-forward position on the bellcrank as well. Obviously you won't reach the stops on the C-Hubs when going full lock anymore, but I have found it not to be an issue at all, and I raced on a fairly tight carpet track.

Just unscrew the ball end caps as low as you can... Also I ended up using associated offroad spring retainers..

Another thing I use to do is when my rear end of my car would kick out, I would stand the rear shock up on the shock tower.

Good luck man

Nope. So I moved the hole back on the chassis and am running the old linkage. with the old thick upper deck that Josh cut for me. The car is really getting good at our carpet track, it's keeping up with the RDX's and X-Ray's in 10.5 now.

So shin is not a good idea
