Change the center diff to 7K oil, it will give more drive to the rear and help it turn while on the throttle. There's a great article my Chad Bradley on diff setup, try googleing it.

Sorry, when you said "mid to exit corner" I thought you meant on the throttle.

Not to many people may like it but so far 7-4-2 is money for me. Car did not seem to give up any turn in and pulls better mid corner out.

I think I understand what you're experiencing. I too am trying to get some more off power steering. I'm going to try lighter oil in the front diff. Check out the link in my previous post.

I may have found the problem, I had alot of droop in the car. I looked at scott's setup and his droop is like 19, I had like 25 in the rear. That may have made the car lazy

There are no issues with the fuel tank and battery box that I'm aware of, unless I missed something.

Search the thread, the answers to your questions are in it.

if your using the mugen droop gauge then scotts 19 has more droop than your 25, by more i mean more downtravel.

+1 running that diff setup also runs pretty good this setup was suggested by one of the UK drivers so looks like it works worldwide as well

Im not using the mugen droop gauge. I use digital calipers with a wheel under the chassis and then measure to the rear hubs with the shocks off.
