Eventhough I have all the #mm screws sitting at home, I still having trouble finding those screw uses under the chassis.

Where can I find some 3.5mm hex stainless steel or titaniun screw to replace those under the chassis?

Sorry, maybe I got what you meant wrongly.. Why you need more rear tracktion.. when the car is understeer?

I see.. if other condition is ok with you, definetely try drag brake by putting shorter sping (then the one on throttle) with medium tension (like 50% less tension than the throttle) and adjust to have drag brake as hard as possible without the rear slips when off throttle entering the corner. You`ll like it.

PS: On the brake lingkage, after that shorter spring, I add about 1.25cm silicon tube before that plastic end screwed in.

Will try that next time...Thanks

On the brake linkage.. there is short medium tension spring and silicon fuel tube before plastic end. Why shoter spring than throttle? because when using longer spings, your throttle springs will reach dead end first before maximum brake. Why +silicon tube, because the shorter spring on brake wont be long enough to reach the end threat of that plastic end on brake linkage. I urge you to try it.. it will sure make your driving much faster.

PS: Lower front shore would definitely works to gain more front traction. I`m just having a really bad bad bad experience with it on our National championsip. Since between lower and higher shore rating would react differently in different temperature, that was disaster on the condition I was running on final (tarmac temp varies within 15deg C on and off in 45 minutes).

Anything that does not happen normally will happen during race day. That's the rule of racing.

Whoaa... Picture of the mother snake ! Congrats on the TQ and your win !

Well, I tried the spring method on the brake linkage as well last weekend. Works quite well with a oneway and I was pretty impressed. I think I just need to shorten the spring. Like you say, the spring on the throttle was a little shorter than the one on the brake linkage. Unfortunately, I was too chicken to race with it. Long track with elbow hairpins at the end meant that you need brakes especially with many cars on a narrow track.

I swapped the oneway with solid front axle with the pins and did not change any setup on it. Brakes felt nice. Had to bump up the EPA on the brake servo a lot but the car did not brake abruptly because of the spring even at last minute braking. Very smooth and during the 4 wheel braking, the wheels did not spin. It's just like ABS on a real car.

Bro, we have mostly hot climate tracks here. A friend of ours drives with the best tire brand and found the traction to be inconsistant. I think he was using 37 or 35 shore. When he used another brand which was 40 shore for the final, he found that he could drive more easily with it.
