If everywhere else works fine, then go for a harder front sway bar setting.

Else, I would use less front camber (-0.5 to -1) and more rear camber (-3 to -4).

Make sure you tighten the diffs so that they do not slip ! Look up Julius' article on mytsn on how to do them correctly.

If it goes up and down... thats it!
Yes. Especially when you blip the throttle and the car is on the starter box. It is very obvious that the rear wheels jump on throttle input.

Q about the sway-bars: in the setup bible it is show as one of the first changes to make, but if you're starting from scratch (i.e. no setup for a track) surely it would be one of the last I mean, the sway bars are providing more of a correcting action and surely it is better to get to a better setup with the other components first.....or am I wrong?

About the front camber - would you suggest a camber change to fix such problems when the fronts are wearing level?

Cheers, Mark.

Not enough browny points yet ! In fact, this coming big race this weekend I could not make it. Preparation and practice would take too much time.

Well for me, if I find the car good all around but except in the corners the car hooks up in the front and too much for my liking, I would just like to stiffen the sway bar up front. Sometimes, you just want very subtle changes because everything else is running right.

I noted that on some tracks, -0.5 and -1.5 camber did not make soo much noticeable difference in the front tires. That of course to a certain extent, making it wear the same flat would be the correct way.

This is what I was meaning - if the car is working ok, then the sway bars are a valid change. But if I'm completely lost with my setup, I'll leave the sway bars until later when things start to come together.

Well my year of lack-of-driving continues - seriously injured myself just before my bike race last week (still managed to get 63rd from 6500 ), so I can hardly walk - on top of that I have a heavy cold and a GF who I need to take care of though some very difficult times
And wouldn't you just know it....the weather is perfect!

Yeah, you're right. But what can be wrong with the stock setup assuming you've built it correctly?

If you look at most of the setups posted on mytsn by the drivers, you'll notice that most of them only vary slightly from the stock setup !
