I hear you have to true the fronts if you use 16/19.

Think i'm better off with the stock pulleys?
It won't do you any good without truing the tires. It will stress out your front belts too much from the increased overdrive.

HI guys...
just a report...
just came from the Nationals...

My car was just fabulous in the quals... At first I was having loads of problem getting the front end to stick... Solved it using harder rear springs... Ok for the quals...

But when Went to the races, on harder tyres, that made my car undrivable... The rear end was jumping and bouncing from place to place... I could have put heavier oil... But any suggestion how to get more front traction without comprimising the rear?
I already had my tyres to wear cambered so I get some more MMs of rubber to the aspohalt..

Can you use softer springs at front or softer tyres' compound at front ?
And leave the rear setup like before.

About the tyres option.. I like it... But I think it would increase front grip a LOT... more than needed...
About softer springs... that made my car dive and hook when entering corners... Not the most stable option... So I think it would happen with the softer tyre...

Try a stiffer swaybar in the rear. The Kawahara blade bar set vertical should cause that rear end to swing around, while still keeping the rear from rolling over.

I've already tried blade bars... I just did not fell confident about them... I'm using the 2.5mm one on the most inward position... so.. I think nothing an be harder than that...

Try removing spacers from the camber links. I think the less you have, the less side bite you'll get.

Flaten front swaybar and lay front shocks down also the type of body makes a big difference if you can't get the steering out of the chassis try a different body.

Hmm, You added one to the stock setup, or ran with one total spacer on each side? Now I'm confused. I hate those spacers. I know it's been posted A THOUSAND TIMES on this site. but i still get confused.

That's one thing I WISH Mugen would do like Serpent, have a setup book or a manual that described exactly how settings affected the car.

That's a great point. I've found the Cadillac to give me TONS of steering. Too much for my taste. Anyone else agree?
