Some few things that can you help on those tight tracks.

1. Narrow your car. Go to 194 or 195mm and the rear track 1mm narrower than front, this will help you rolling on the turns and be more agile through it.
2. Use higher roll center supports.
3. Probably you will be happy putting less caster (try with the 1mm shim at the front, rest of shims at rear) and more front camber.
4. Check with a thinner rear diff oil, something like 7000.

What do you use at front? diff or one-way?

About the problem of the clutch, probably you're using the Extra hard spring, try the stock one and set your clutch gap to 0.3mm or 0.4mm.

Change the diaphragm for a new set of ones, as the shocks gets used it goes softer and the rebound is affected (and of course, be sure to eliminate all the air bubbles on your shocks )

Default grub screws

3 mm grub screws are what I used and I will be putting two more 90 degrees from the first two to make it even stronger.
Thanks for the idea!

I'd say 180 degree if you want to spread the load evenly.

I still think that a hole in the outdrive and a screw that goes though would be best, but it would be harder to find it.

Maybe we could grow hair on the outdrive

Default About those shock bladders....

Are there other ones besides the Mugen ones that will fit the Mugen shocks?? My LHS is fairly limited and no time to order online now.
Thanks, Kevin

Borrow them from the MRX3 shocks (is what I do sometimes, are the same). Will be the best, but INRB, Yokomo ones fit on the shocks.
