Inside joke: I thought the Hokage outlawed Nitro racing in the Village? Have you and Naruto been at it again?
You know Naruto, always breaking the rules!

A better approach would be to flatten your front sway bar, then maybe stiffen the rear sway bar to free up the rear and give you more turn in. Another tuning option would be to dial out some rear toe. You can also increase the amount of droop in the rear to increase the response of your car when turning. There are a lot of tuning options to fix a push. Just try them one at a time until you hit the sweet spot. I hope this helps.
Thanks!

I have taken note.

But about the tire dia. (Front & Rear) I consider this very improtant to get maximum effect of the settings you listed.

i have bought some claster clips from GS and used, i replaced the 1mm claster clip that came with RRR with a 1.7-2mm claster clip and now is working just perfect i am not sure about the width of it but it is almost the double of the standard one.

i used the stardard clip on the front side of the arm and inserted the new one on the end. i hope this helps

Yup, I found a couple of real thin teflon shims in my motor box, worked out perfectly.

Kyosho makes a 3mm washer set that will allow you to shim to the exact size.

Will try some rollcenter adjustments with the front upper A-arms this weekend.
Sounds good. I think I may try a few of your ideas.

Thanks
