Folks, I have a push that's no going away. I have pretty much stock set up at the moment except that I have about 18000 (30000+7000) weight oil in the rear diff. The car turn in ok but would just go wide if I apply throttle and I couldn't get the tail out if I tried. Current set up:

Front:
Tire 37
Shock oil kyosho 50W
Spring stock black
Shock position middle using the optional graphite shock towers
Caster stock (20 degrees?)
Camber -2
Toe 0 degree
One-way
ride height 5

Rear:
Tire 40
Shock oil kyosho 50W
Spring stock gold
Shock position inside using the optional graphite shock towers
Camber -3
Toe -2 degree
Diff oil kyosho 18000 (30000+7000)
Ride height 5.5

Any suggestions?

What's your front droop? ...and do you have a sway bar in the rear?

for the front try using lighter weight oil, softer springs or make your sway bars softer.

The front droop is 2mm above the bottom of chassis (2 using hudy droop gauge). I do have sway bay front and rear. Rear in stock setting and front is set flat (the softest setting). Thanks!

Yea, I can do that but I want to see what I can do with other settings before I rebuild my shocks.

Reduce front droop to limit weight transfer to the rear under acceleration.

Try lowering your roll centers.

I had 1 before and I already increased it to 2 (less droop). If I increase it much further there wouldn't be much suspension travel left.

I guess as opposed to increasing it to 2, you should be decreasing it to 0 or -1. Under acceleration when weight transfers to the rear anyhow, you still have suspension travel that the front tires stay in contact.

Try less rear toe in to say +1.5 or +1. Try a stiffer rear diff combined with more caster (more laid down). Increases on power steering.

Yup. Loose the front or get a harder rear sway bar.

I read that you're using a one way, right? when you need extra oversteer,.. why not try to stiifen the rear diff (use heavier oil),.. only one thing to mess with,... cos IMO, with a front one-way 18,000 in the rear is far too light,... try 30,000 (I'm using front diff with 50,000 oil, so I think 30,000 will still be in the light side w/ a front one-way) it'll surely give you plenty of power to whip the tail,....

note: smoother steering input will be needed
