It's almost as if you didn't read any of my post that you replied to.

How wide is your rear track? Looks pretty narrow.

I was simply explaining how that rule works in nearly all motorsports. Look straight down, no tire. It's the top of the fender only.

If the car is actually fast, having a tire peeking out, royally sucks for your aero. So its a self solving issue, mostly.

Track is, as per manuals shims. Wide shim on one side. 3 thin on other. As narrow as anyone I know.

I tried. Left mine 2 weeks ago with one of the usual top 3 drivers at the track. He made number of changes and was able match times with his. Unfortunately it’s just the same back on my controller. Can not make this car steer.

first few minutes are WGTR

I didn't see it get up on 2 wheels, or traction wobble. If the car ain't trying to flip somewhere, it ain't the cars fault.

Not enough dope?

Define "controller" - are you referring to your transmitter?
Which one do you have?
Possibly a setting with endpoints or dual rate on the servo channel?

I think he is just saying that even at full lock, his car won't turn in enough.

Futaba 4pls. Canít turn the controller wheel far enuff to turn. Left or right. Iím used to driving not properly setup cars/buggies. But even those I can find a way to drive them.

Sounds like endpoints need adjustment. Along with some steering work on the car.

I glued the servo saver. Added caster. Raised the upper arm. Full small. Loose diff. High rear ride ht. Small spur, motor back.

I could put in an Xray servo saver, but those are so stiff, a glued saver on this little servo is no worse.

Raising the upper front arms reduces steering. That is lowering the roll center. You do that is the car has too mush steering or it is lifting.

Exactly. It'll help plant the car to the track. My caster is maxed out to make up for it. Little extra front dope thanks to the roll center.

Touch of toe in to dull entry, and help middle.

Default Front droop adjustment

I have a gen x10 rt and wondered how front droop is adjusted. The manual says to just allow springs to touch no gap or preload.

Loosen little brass set screw and screw king pin in to reduce droop or unscrew king pin to increase droop. Don't forget to retighten little brass set screw.
