Check the front sway bar. Harden / stiffen it a little to shift the balance. Either that or soften the rear sway bar.

You want this then...

You're running a front diff? Can you still get Stratus 1.0 bodyshell?

Yo,

The JP engines are defenitly one of the fastest, if not the fastest engines. I live in the Netherlands, and Serpent has his factory here and are always on the track with the newest parts and engines, but they haven't managed to beat the Mugen JP combi yet

The only backdraft of the JP is their durability.
They are not as durable as the NovaMega's or other Nova based engines.

Maybe if you cross your eyes a bit, a 705 loks like a 710 and then looks like a Moogen.

I better shush ... I need to rebuild my Moogen next ... its really about time.

The rear swaybar is at it's softest Lord D and the front at it's hardest.

Running allmost stocksetup but with the rear rollcenter upper inner and the rearshocks last hole up the shocktower( vertical shocks ) . front red spring rear yellow 4 holes all around. Think the irratic behavior comes from the to tight reardiff( initialsetting).
