change the rear sway bar to the softest VZ217-1.8 , remove the sway bar only if the traction is very high

you might want to switch the front caster clips all to the rear of the arm if using softer rear tires

Front sway bar standing up this should prevent the car from spinning out when turning and use 38 or 40 shore foam tire front ,38 shore foam rear
rear shock position on the middle TRY THIS SET UP IT SHOULD WORK JUST FINE

Now I'm having problems fish-tailing out of turns. I've tried different shores of tires, but it still does the same thing. My ride height is 4mm. What else can I do to prevent this??

What size tires are you using front and rear? Are you using the same shore front and rear?

looking at your comments that there are some rough areas & the track is pretty technical
here are some of my recommendations if you don't like his set up
Front toe 0 tire shore 35 or 37 true down 61.5 spring black
rear toe 2.5 tire shore 37 true down 63.5spring gold
front camber 2mm/ droop 3mm to reduce onpower push
rear camber 4mm/droop 1mm
front shock position stock
rear shock last hole outward
ride height front 5.5
rear ride height 6
caster settings 2mm front & back nuetral position
going with all your caster settings front will create to much of an aggressive entry & real sluggish exit out of turns since the car comes with 0 degree spindles if it came with 2 degree then the caster settings up forward would be ok. with a higher traction wear from the track you should get at least 2 qualifiers with your tires if you don't chunk. I tried this setup @ a track in Ny similiar to what your running with the same conditions. LMK the outcome

What diameter?

I find that a 2mm split is too much for me. It makes the rear end loose coming out of a turn if I get on the gas to quick. I tried going to a softer tire in the rear, which helped a little, but going to a 1mm split with the same shore tire worked better. The car is much easier to drive.

Thumbs up Fish Tailing

Try the rear diff (cant see if anyone has mentioned this above - so apologies if I am repeating what has aleady been said). The RRR come with 30K as std but on low traction surfaces especially trying to get out of turns with the power on the rear will slide. Try 10K and then go up to 20K - find which works best for you. Also, you can try running with less oil in the diff and a heavier oil - this can prevent less initial resisiance to differential action.

Also, running too light a front diff can cause this same problem. I have been running 100K (Associated brand) in the front of mine and the car is feeling really good!

Hope this helps

Hey Team Kamikaze,

Again, thanks so much for all the info.

As for the 40 shore tires, I will not have these till next weekend, so what specs should I run this weekend with the 37 shore till I get the 40?

I have also ordered the rear sway bar as suggested (1.8) which will come in the same time with the 40 shore tires. So, can I use the (2.0) for now?

What adjustments should I make in the meanwhile for this?

Since I will have 37 all around for this weekend, should I just remove the rear sway bar?

Also, when you say "you might want to switch the front caster clips all to the rear of the arm if using softer rear tires" do you mean softer than 37?

What about the rear upper arms? Should these remain stock at 2mm and in the OUT position?

I also noticed you did not mention anything about the rear down stop or spring colours (front & back).

Let me know.

Thanks!
