I know, but I guess when mrgsr said sometimes "the track is just below good", that to me would suggest that it is often low-traction. And if everyone else is running 40s, to me that would probably mean medium traction. Everyone has a different opinion on what traction is like on some club racing tracks. Like you mentioned, he may even be running a one-way on a really tight and small track.

What motor are you running? You mentioned on-power rear traction. You may need to feather you trigger finger a little or loosen the clutch spring nut. I had this problem with my V-One and a new Sirio Evo 3. The motor has so much low-end torque compared to my older Sirio, that it was very easy to break the rear end loose on power. I went from 7k to 5k in the rear diff, loosen the clutch, and richened the low-end 1hr. All was better. But I still needed to adjust my driving style more than anything. It's better to manage the power than be over powered.

I would suggest to try to go back to the stock RR settings, except for lighter rear diff oil and 38 shore all around (if you were running 35s in the rear, they wear way faster than the fronts which will also make the rear end swing out on power). And start testing from there.

Then mess with the droop. Since the foams are always changing size, I usually measure droop over ride height during qualifiers and try different settings 0.5mm at a time (I find that 2 to 2.5mm of droop over ride height is best for any situation F & R). Then I go with the best setting for the Main. You may want to try running more rear toe-in. One change at a time so you'll learn what's best for your driving style.

Hey dude thanks heaps for that info. I guess i am a little throttle finger happy at times

I am running an OS TR R Spec and yeh these engines are known for having huge torque. I am using the stock setting for the clutch nut so maybe i should unscrew the screw and make the clutch engage sooner.

I ran the car saturday with more front droop and no rear droop and the car handled much better.

would removing the rear sway bar make a difference ? if so what difference will i see ?

This weekend at the nats ill try the 40 front 37 rear tyre setup. Then if that fails ill go the lighter diff oil.

you're right! everyone has different opinions in the meaning of high/med/low traction tracks.. we use 37s all around and its considered as med. that's why i thought 40s all around (with awesome grip as posted by mrgsr) is somewhere in the high traction category.. but that's just me! isn't 'sometimes' the opposite of 'often'.. no? (just kidding...)
