Default Rear Anti Squat

Hi,

I have a 1/8 scale DM1 on-road car.Trying to understand how to give the car positave rear anti squat.

Do I raise the front of the rear lower arm?

And do I do the came to the upper rear arm?? Or just the bottom?

Thanks Pete

i have a dm1 spec my guess you are have rear end traction problems. and if this is the case i would raise the front pin on the lower rear a-arm. i do have one and depending on the rules in your area is foam or rubber will dictate how to set up your car.

You raise the front of the lower rear hinge pins to increase anti-squat. This will give you more steering but less rear traction under acceleration. Off-power you will get less weight transfer and therefore, less steering.
