Default OP200 Associated

Dear All

I know that there has not been much activity on this thread, but I hope someone may be able to help.

I have an op200 chassis on my associated R5. I find the car to be a tad 'understeery'

I am using AE gold centre spring
AE side springs
30 wt shock oil and 30wt for side dampers

Any advice?

30wt for side dampner, are you running the dampning shock of Dampner tubes. The tubes ussually provide faster transition and I normally run between 15,000 and 30,000 in the tubes.

Also could be a tire size/compound related, stock or mod? As much information as you can provide would make it easier to help.

The Damping shock might be a little "pushy" due to a slow transition, you might have a hard time getting rid of that feel. Some things to try, Different body, AMR tends to be more for Mod with a lot of rear down force, a few guys run it in stock but they have a lot of set-up experience.
Try the Strakka it has more corner entry steering.
Also tire size and tire saucing procedure. 1.67 rears and 1.60-61 fronts should give you decent tire life and handling compromise. Full sauce rears and 1/4 sauce fronts maybe increase to 1/2 or 3/4 if front bite is needed.
Sides springs, AE gold
Front Springs, you don't say what you're running .20 is normal and .18 option for more bite.

Some drivers are swapping to the Tamiya cross damper tube for more consistency over the kit damper.

Out of interest - heavier or lighter oil for more mid-corner steering in side pod damper

Lighter to a point, that's why the tubes work better. The piston in the oil can not change direction fast enough. Shocks do it cause they have a spring to assist rebound

It appears that there is a stiction/pack issue with the shock.
Have you tried out the single friction tube?
