I agree with the bumper causing understeer after it's deformed. Ft. Myers has some STIFF boards I hear so that bumper probably won't stay on the car too long once you notice the rediculous understeer.

Default WIDE BUMPER

A bit of soft heat from a blow torch or similar will put the bumper back to its original shape,ready to go again.
You could also mould it yourself slightly turning up the outside edges.

I'm going to try something different this weekend.
I'm always looking for more power on steering, and reading throught various forum sites they seem to suggest a solid front diff will give more power on steering, so that is what I've done (using the RRR spool).
Will post results of test on Monday.

The set up I use for my RC car does not work on the VRC car.
Everything on the VRC works in reverse to reality with the 05

That would be great! Should have better brakes than the one-way I presumed
