Should be running a 2mm split between front and back on tires.

ok my order came in and i went threw the car and changed a few things.

Found the front diff was almost out of lube. I put 100K in the front. Put 60K in the rear for diff oil.

Changed the springs went with light purple for the front and violet for the rear. Ill change camber and toe settings on the rear and lessen them. Then go from there. its going to be colder this weekend. Any idea to improve traction for the front. High temp is slated at 68 F

Ok i have changed the setup and it was a lot better now. I can run the car faster. But now I'm having little issue where the rear steps out and when i try to fix it the front ends up pushing. Im having a hard time getting the right combination to where i have the car locked in. I don't know if i have something really wrong or just need to make a different adjustment to get it right on. Its close. The fast lap was 9.0-9.1 and my fast lap was 9.7 avg lap was 9.5 and my avg was 10.2. I think if the rear was more locked in I could be faster but seems like every adjustment i make flips flops the problem to something else.

Any idea??

Thicker oil will give you more turn in and will push more on exit, and thinner oil less turn in and less push off the turn.

the diff oil is tough. I thought thinner oil gives you more traction and thicker oil is less traction. Maybe ill just put a front spool in lol. So i should go to a thicker oil for more steering into a corner ??

Ok i tried a few things and I'm almost there. I dropped down one step on front springs in the front. I took out all the front caster. I put in the .7 front blades. Im running 2.2 front camber and the car is close. But i need a little more steering going into corners. What would you suggest to try to get some more front steering. ??

yea I've been using that. But seems like somethings are backwards that help me. But if i hook up the rear roll bar. I think it will make me loose. What does standing up the shocks do for me in the rear for grip ??
