Tried out some new settings on my XR8 and it became a much easier car to drive. I can drive it more agressively into corners.

front upper and lower arms raised thus moving roll center/cg up(is that right? I always mix this up) yellow springs ,flat front roll bars,40wt shock oil, almost neutral caster,-1 droop, 2'camber 1' toe

rear grey spring on 40wt,flat roll bar, 8 droop, 3'camber, 2.5'toe in.stock rear camber link angle(one alu washer)

track, bumpy tech infield, about 120' bend on straight, traction so so. 37 shore front and rear.

I hate settings sheet hence I leave it in here

thanks

The Serpent 1/8 does not have a ball diff.
