Front swaybar vertical,
rear bar as stiff as possible,
superglue on the tire sidewalls,
smaller tires
car as low as possible

roll during cornering on power and off power..

setup is stock.

or you can go round slower.....you too fast already....... try using 45-42 sh for frnt n rear....Tom was using 45sh...but the traction varies frm day n night....n it is worse on weekends. I was using 42sh frnt n rear for my evo leslie was using 37sh for the past 2 days. also can play. use frnt 1-way it is much better.

use a front gear diff and you may use harder brake to quickly slow down your car before a corner.

Default Traction roll

First make sure the car is 200mm rear and 198/199mm front
Max. height 6mm
go to a stiffer oil all around
use the new progressive blue springs all around
as said before, smaller tires ( diamiter)
The team Mugen guys say that they never run harder than 37 shore all around , and useing the front diff under any condition will be slower than the one way.If your car is set up propperly you will be able to use the brakes Hard!

never run harder than 37 shores?
I think conditions at the track should be the deciding
factor for tire choice. Just look at the set up for the winner
of the winter nats.

is he a team mugen driver?

there are a lot of things that team driver does while you dont.

same token, the champ use this or that and this doesnt mean you will win if you use this and that.

there is one fastest way to overcome traction roll,
"SMALL TIRE" with this, you dont need front diff, you dont need brake and you are fast.

Stiffer springs, sway bar, harder compound tyres
And use the rear A roll centre blocks

what does the A block does ?in the rear... in simple terms please.


i'm on 42 shore all round and still flip, using the new darker blue springs and the harder new rear sway bars as well.

ride height abt 3mm front and back... front roll bar at 60degree

still flip ergggggg .... maybe a softer spring to counter the effect?

or maybe raise the shocks to vertical to have less side bite?
