Hey, just hoping one of you guys can help me out. I am currently running the stock setup on a Factory Team kit and cant get rid of the push the truck has. Tires are not the problem because I have tried a few different types and still have the same problem to some extent. I am mainly after more turn in so I can hold more speed through the start of the corners. The way I drive, I can handle oversteer but just dont like the feeling of understeer and running wide through the tight corners.

If anybody has any advice or setups they can recommend it would be greatly appreciated. Our tracks over here are usually pretty rough so that has to be considered as well.

i run the 7-7-3 set up and helps a lot on turn in steering. if you change to maifields set up for the dirt nitro that gives you a lot of on power steering as well. i could not believe the diffrence it made.

Thanks for the help guys. I'll try the 7-7-3 and see how that goes for a starting point and then just go from there.

Cheers,
Gary

Easiest way to improve the turn in without messing with shock oils and diff oils is using the steering rack mod and the rc8b foward battery location, do this and you will be dialling steering out of the truck.
