You right Im2lazy.... again I asked the faster driver test my car... The car that I set it as per my standard...loose on entering cornering. And you know what.... He just bring my car in, tighten the front spring abit ( clockwise turn to put more tension ) on my front spring.... and ask me run my car.. hey! damm shit that thing go in corner tight not loose. Smooth and grip! Punch it maximum on straight, break and turn, it go sharp in ! wow... I'm flying man...
As you said I ask him why? He said it's true that I used harder sping in front than the rear but how much harder or softer? We have to test it on track ! He said.. Spin ! your front tires grip and the rear not so stiffer the front spring by tighten the shock spring or loosen the rear shock spring. And than test.. Shit! Such a simple solution! Aaaa... Now I know when we should tightent the shock and why we should do that! That is newbie stuff lol. Thanks to you man,..Im2lazy.

, much obliged...


The fast guys always know what they are doing. They are always getting around the track, not only because of their driving, but their tuning skills. Those guys always seem to know the weirdest things that can fix your car in 5 minutes, while you've been spending months on the problem... This way in which you are now learning to tune and dial in a car, is the exact way I learned and it is absolutely the easiest and fastest way to pick up info. You can talk about things, but when you are face to face with the difference, you won't forget it.

Also, decrease the amount of camber you have... 0 degrees is probably best. The front should be somewhere between 1 and 2 degrees. However, this will give you strange tire wear, so I hope you use relatively hard compound tires. The front inserts can be softer, but the rears need to be nice and firm. Also a rear swaybar might be helpful to keep the car from barrel-rolling if the track surface catches an edge of the tire. An engine with a very level and smoothe powerband will also make things easier.

Shit...! confuse again!. Guys, if on droop gauge the term use for "increase" the droop is it means to set it negative or positive step!

What i understand is....
Positive (+) the end of the botom ride arm will be higher than the chasis. - That is reducing the droop.
Negative (-) the end of the bottom ride arm will be lower than the chasis. - That is increasing the droop

Am I in correct definition here?
