Ok....wow a lot of movement on this today...thank you everyone for your replies.....this is the best I can do to assist in the info requested......

Car- F104 V1 Pro

Toe in/out - 0 degrees
Ride height - 3.5F/3.5R
T-Bar - thinnest ( not sure what the measurement is )
Front springs - silver
Rear shock spring - white tamiya
Rear shock oil - not a frickin clue ( used car )
Exotek wheels
571/572 pits
Brakes set at 96%
ABS - not on
No damper tubes because it's a V1 but the friction plate is very loose
Body is and F60

Yes the carpet is approx 26 years old and yes I am getting better traction with the tamiya tires that are mounted on tamiya wheels.

So that's the best I can do......I have been told that I shouldn't expect very good performance out of that chassis as it is not all that good for rubber. I hope I don't need to build a new car to put between these tires that I own.

Thanks in advance for any help!

try some toe out 1.5 to start... then add 1mm shim under the rear upright ball joint...

Ditch the silver front springs that is a huge problem. Use black or like a .020 associated or .50mm CRC.

Also, the t bar cars are awesome on rubber, who ever told you that is mistaken.

The latest TCS trip to japan was won with an original F104 t bar car.

YES YES YES to ROBK
I have been running the AE .016 front springs

and my F104x1 is always the baseline when I try a new car, that car just flat WORKS on asphalt!
