my main problem this moment is when i try to change car direction with a lot of spead, it seems like the fron side of the car doesn't "listen" very well.. and the car goes straight i tried to make the rear antiroll bar a bit hardest but it hasn't helped that much. any ideas?

antoine80, post your current setup. As much detail as possible. Also give us the kind of track you're running on. Low, med, high grip? Is it a fast, slow, open or techincal? Smooth or bumpy? Is the track prepped? What kind of body are you running?

From the looks of it, having to go down to 20k in the diff, you're probably on a med traction track. A good thing to do is take notes during the free time you get at the track. Don't just burn up fuel and wear tires down. Experiment with every run or few laps. Make one change at a time. Write down what works and doesn't for your driving style. Lots of people get caught up in what others tell them to do. But sometimes that's not what works for yourself. Try different springs, droop settings, caster, camber, etc ... in due time you'll know your car better than the guys watching you. And when conditions change, you'll know what to do. Who knows, your car may already be dialed. You may just need to work on driving, because your car may push, but it shouldn't be going straight when the wheels coxed over. Try slowing down a bit, some races are won in the turns. Hopefully we can get you in complete dialation.

Hope this helps, Mike
Mike, I steal those from my wife all the time. She's wondering where all the black one went. I tell her that's what she gets for leaving them around the house.

litespeed-dom and MIKE ELLIS:

Are you guys going to be at the ROAR nats next month? I'm hoping Team Kyosho International and the nationally sponsored guys can work together to dominate the event.

GO KYOSHO!

Well, I have a slight obsticle that I can't overcome....... NO $$$ to travel . I would have loved to, since it's on West Coast this year! Living with an unemployed GF right now kinda blows.

I'm sure there will be a good contingent of RRR at Nats. And to anyone, don't be afraid to go up to the Kyosho sponsored guys to ask questions.

I'm actually going to pick Toso to win this year.... 2 National title in mod carpet sedan back to back, 3rd and 2nd in gas Nats. I think this year is his year to win the gas Nats title!

Unfortunately, there are always other priorities that need to take precedence over our hobby. It may be hard for some people to believe, but I just can't be blowing money left and right either. I may have a bigger budget than some, but there is a limit to how much I can spend. I would have loved to fly up to California this year and do a one-week tour of all the tracks - and time it so that I could watch and film the nats, but then I would have had to explain to someone why a family vacation didn't come first. It's too bad the timeframes don't overlap.

Just remember bro, an unemployed GF is better than no GF.

Going to Nats is not cheap, at least $1500 to get through the week.
