If a rear diff, replace the 2.6x8 screws with 3x8. This will not work in the front as it distorts the pulley.

agreed with what you've suggested...i have change to 40 shore front tyres and droop set to 3 b'cos the track is really uneven and bumpy.

I found the rear is harder when i raised the ride height to 8.5mm via the adj. shock collar.
I am thinking of changing to a Kyosho orange spring and raised the shock mounting position to 4th hole (counting from the lowest hole).
This way, i can raise the chassis more w/o having to adj. too much on the adj shock collar to avoid a harder compressed spring.

I will test it out this weekend, but what you guys' comments on this?

Default Setup on bumpy track......

It seems that you have too much off power steering from what you have described.

Firstly, try using the same front and rear ride height.

Secondly, limit your rear droop (i.e. from 4 to 6). This will limit the weight transfer from the rear to the front during off throttle.

The reason why your rear is loose can also be due to the rear droop. Limit it to 6 or 7 and try it out.
InitialD, r u using the LSA Carbon Shock Tower on your Impulse?

In my case, i have a carbon shocktower which is rather similar to the LSA ones. If raising the shock mounting position from the lowest to the 4th/ 5th hole on the shocktower, what would happen to the rear end handling?

The track is bumpy, my chassis was bottoming out at the rear the other day. I think 8.5mm is lowest ride height at that track...
Rear droop is 3.

Raising the rear shock position or making the shock stand more vertical will make the rear springs feel stiffer, allowing less weight transfer to the rear, and effectively giving you more on power steering.

If you have to much off power steering you may want to try some of the following:

Stiffer front springs
Thicker frong shock oil
Stiffer front sway bar
Less front camber
More Caster
Less front toe out
Less rear droop

If your loose on power you may want to try one of the following:

Softer rear springs
Thinner rear shock oil
Softer rear sway bar
More rear camber
Less Caster
More Rear toe in
More Front Droop

if you have a track that requires 8.5 ride high, you should play your rally car there instead !
