depending on the size and flow of the track I would start with two things. FIrst go with 38 fronts and 40 rears. Secondly a diff tends to be more consistent but you should try the spool up front. I would also go with 40wt shock oil with 3 hole pistons front and rear. this setup should get you close to what you are looking for.

Hope this helps

Since ur using the 1 degree blocks u can also try switching the left one and putting it on the right side and vise versa.

Would he have this problem if he had the longer Servo lever front installed? I have this installed ever since i built my car. So im wondering if to take it off. Which means i would get more ackerman. Would it make the car turn better?

When you use a front spool you will always have some off power push that's the nature of a spool you have to either give more throtle or use the brake to tighten up your line.

I am going to the track this Sunday. If you want you can meet me there and we can get the car sorted out. Traction was bit low last week so we will have to make a few changes from the stock setup. Let me know.

Later

Has anyone ever had the pins in the dog bones slide out? I found this on the rear of my car and it was binding like hell. Is there a fix or just but some new ones? They hardly show any wear on them and the drive cups are not notched.


Thanks
