no way........

i was at the track during this event and none of mugens were checked and approved......

i have 2 drivers in my team and the fuel line of their cars is the shortest as possible, both tanks were measured and both held 76ml........

most cars were checked at room temp because when the problem occured all mtx4 owners took their cars to the technical inspection and checked their tanks......so the question about the tank and fuel temperature is eliminated......

I think the filter installed in the tank is decomposable and this is causing the problem with fuel capacity.......

I also heard that at the 1/8 offroad WC the Mugen guys were matching fuel tanks because some tanks could be filled up to 133ml

The rear toe is at 1.5mm. My droop is set to 4 in the rear and 0 in the front.

Try running a softer tire in the front. Tires are 80% of your setup. Another thing to try is your caster; use a small shim in the front of the arm and the rest in the back (less caster).

Maybe this cheat can help to reduce / eliminate pushing on & off power.

BTW, I need expert to re-confirm the cheat is coprrect.

more caster will give you more stability at higher speeds and less will do the opposite i ran mine with all the caster shimms towards the front of the car but it really depends on the track

In general, more caster will give you less turn in and more turn out. Less will do the opposite. Try moving the top arm to the front, this will make the car snap into a corner but push coming out.
