Rafael,
You should spit on the hinge pin so it will go in easier, by the way are you installing the correct hinge pin? you know you can't install a "MAN'S" hinge pin in your Kkkar.

Went today for practice at the track today, using the setup changes you proposed:

- Front roll center pins in the middle
- On hole upward on the front shocks
- Front ride hight 4mm
- Rear droop from 6mm to 5
- Rear Diff oil to 20.000cst
- Two holes upward on the rear shocks
- Rear ride hight 5mm

Using 37 shore rear and 35 shore front cut to 62.5 mm front and 64 mm rear.
The oversteer problem was dissapeared.. The rear traction was very good. However,
the car suffered from heavy understeer at corner entry and mid-corner..
I disconnected the front anti-roll bar and things went better. Then i switched from blue
front springs to red (old) springs which are softer and things went even better.
Very stable car, maybe just a bit off-throttle understeer at corner entry.

Tomorrow ill try increasing the caster a bit.
Any other recommedations? My current setup is attached.

Thank you very much for your time,

George
If the car is really stable you can go heavier on the rear diff. 30,000, you can also go from 5 to 4 on the droop. Going with more caster is not good if you want off power steering. Bringing the arms back will give more on power steering. If anything take away caster and also lay the front shocks back down. If the car gets loose with the heavier diff oil just put the front sway bar back on.

Some people have been sending me PM's for my set-up. Here is my starting set-up for most tracks. It is stable with a slight push going in. It is how I drive. I drive with a slight push going in, with good corner speed and exit.

Regards,

DJ Apolaro

It is good. Just mount the front wheels equal to the body and the rear wing back a little bit. Maybe 3mm off the rear of the body. The body has more steering than the 3.1 dodge, but is still stable. Play with the wing to get the stability.
