Glad you have yours sorted... am struggling with the handling with my 2013 compared to my older 2012 I ran previously. Only thing now different is the chassis plate and front bulkheads...

I had this problem. I found increasing the ride height helped increae the mid corner steering and did not slow down the car, made it faster actually.

Try front 4.5 and rear 5 mm ride height on blank rims.

I tried 59/61 split with a ride height at 6/7mm just for kicks. The car had tremendous corner speed throughout the whole transition. I was able to accelerate before hitting the apex on corners at my local track. And the funny thing is that this was only the 2nd run before really touching set-up. Pretty sweet car.

that sounds like a traction rool lookin to happen where does that put u with foam? like 8.5/9mm
I would try short rear link, more spacers on top of the rear knuckle, and maybe one hole up from bottom on rear roll center.......even raise rear shock up 1 may help.....

Thank you for your reply, I ran the rear camber link in the same spot on my 2012 so why do I need to change it to get my 2013?

the shocks are lower so you have lower RC. than say the 2012.
The shocks are more inclined also if you use the same hole.
Both those will get you more grip so also less steering.
What evo driver says is also good. You need to raise the rear RC.
