Hi Mugeneers,

to everyone who's looking for mor steering, especially with front diff, try a floating top deck (radio plate)

Elongate the two hole for the screws that go in the rear radio plate support.
Elongate them to the side so the deck can move sideways for about 2mm.

Result is amazing. tested it today. Steering up the whazooo and if you don't need it, just tighten the screws.

Don't start to discuss my sanity, just try or leave it

Btw, the idea comes from a VERY respected designer, not myself

Nope, only those who have to run Ninja engines are falling behind.

I almost guarantee you that Swauger with his JP power would have been right up there.

Fukuda's and Rick V's lap times were excellent, it's the engine that killed their efforts.

Ditto

Just because you sign 5 or so of the topdrivers in the US does not mean you have a better chassis.(XRAY).

Mugen rules!!!!

Pass you soon...

I tried more caster and it didnt help...I did try the 38 front 40 rear setup and that help a lot, but still not what i want. I guess ill try the shocks next...Would less droop in the front help? Maybe go from 2 to 3?

I also have a droop and shock question. Say you set your droop to something like -3...Would you lengthen
your shock so they would reach where they will be on the lower arm?

If the lap times were good then what happened with the engines?
