You think that can be motor problem??
It could be that. Maybe your bottom is too rich and top too lean? What gear ratio and tire size were you running? At Rev I run 16/50 23/45 with 57F and 59R.

I was pretty much lean on the bottom than normal, and I was little rich on top than normal.
gears was 17/61 & 22/56, tire size was 58/60
I had really good speed with those gears, if possible I would like to keep them and change something else

I think your problem lies with the motor tuning. I've only had run time issues on BIG tracks but so does everyone else. How long is your fuel line Walter? Mine is 7 1/2 inches so try going longer if you haven't already. Next time, don't go full out modified with that motor!

I will try longer fuel line
I have a problem, I don't have any non-full modified motor left

Default Front Knuckles

If I use the 2 degrees knuckles:
will I get more or less steering?
ON or OFF power?
entering or exiting the corners?

You could try the 23t pinion....if youre running on a large main straight this will help.

I got the 23t gear. You can run small tyres and get really good speed with good handleing

Cheers

You will get more on power steering. It's most noticable on corner exit. The car is a little lazy on corner entry with the 2 deg. hubs.

It depends on how you feel the car is handling. If you just need a bit more on power steering then the 1deg. hubs should be perfect. It doesn't hurt to try both if you have the time and decide which is better.

Anyone that finds the car really nervous off power should change to the 2 deg. hubs because they get rid of a lot of that. Also, there is nothing wrong with lowering the dual rate on your radio. The less the wheels are turning, the less they are scrubbing which will mean better tire wear. I have mine set at 75% for my home track.

maybe if you put the 12 acerman on with the 2 deg offset hub would be a good idea. the 12 would give too much offpower steering and the 2 deg hub would take some off the offpower steering away and add to the onpower steering????

I've already experimented with the 12 ackerman arm but I didn't like the way it handled. The car had very little off power steering. The 11 is best, but I have heard that the Kawahara arm is better since you can adjust the postions forward and back as opposed to narrow and wider with the stock arms.

I thought the 11 would hit the diff housing, so I put on the 12.
Not yet finished the car so I cant say if it would work but would this off power feel be anything like the FW05 off power push?
