Anyone else notice the weird lower pricing on the RS 09 on some sites?, it's being sold for prices under that of the old RS or other high spec versions, seems strange considering how new it is?.

Guys,

Remember me asking here about understeering problems I've been having? Well here's what happened yesterday. I tried changing my diff oils from OFNA 120,000wt front / TM 50,000 rear to TM 50,000 front and TM 30,000 rear, without changing anything else. The car immediately became, um, more free. Before the change it was struggling to change directions; now it was easy to rotate the car. The only thing was that the rear end became a little too loose so I had to lower the rear roll center and change shock positions to compensate.

I also changed the tires from 37/40 to 35/37 and the car became much more glued to the track .

I wasn't able to experiment with shock oils and such because of time but there's still a month of racing left for this season so we'll see .

looser diffs always helps in making the car turn... however, you will suffer a disadvantage should the traction be high as you will lose out during acceleration and hard braking...

i would rather experiment with the weight transfer of the car... soft diffs for me are only for low grip conditions....

in your case, i would try 60k rear diff with maybe higher roll center rear or softer front sus depending on which part of the corner you are understeering...

Default using rear offset wheels

Hi team

for those wanting to use offset wheels on the back then you should look at buying the kfactory rear adjustable hinge pin mount - k14200

http://www.kfactoryracing.com/produc...4200&pageNum=1

This option also allows for more roll centre positions by moving the arms pivot point closer to the centre of the car and also helps if you are hit up the rear
