Hi guys !

I need some help with the setup on my T4 16. It all happens on the Track in Luxemburg and the setup is based on the ETS setup 2015 from Alex Hagberg with some modifications due lack of some parts.

My problem is that the rear of the car is very nervous on and off throttle which makes it really hard to be fast on this track. I ordered new antiroll bars today. 1.3 for front and 1.2 for the rear. Does anybody have an idea how to make the car more stable ?

remove the screws from the motor mount and just run screw in 1, I find this gives a very stable rear
Change to body most people use an LTCR on asphalt, I had a GX and have hardly used it as it didn't inspire confidence
more rear toe in

The rear pivot block inserts don't add up to 2.5deg, they are not central, but you haven't ticked the boxes for 1 or 0.5 either

Ok, that will be less than 2.5 rear toe, more like 2.2 on gauges.
Try putting one of them to kit blocks and see if that helps make the rear more stable.
Whilst I can run 2deg rear toe I find it makes it harder to go on power out of the corners, so a little bit more rear toe might help you.

Thx for your answers. I have to come back to what racing27 said about the screws. Does anybody know more about that ?

IN the image you posted screw 3 is essential, you remove screw 4 with the nut and all screws 5 except for the front screw

If you look at the set up sheet the motor mount screws are numbered, front 1, next one has the option of stand or nut, then 2 and the last one nearest the rear of the car 3.

of these 4 screws only use a screw in the position 1

That really is a 'try it and see' type test, but an easy change to make at the track.
That sort of change is very dependant of the tyres and the track etc.

Hello. Looking your setup I will try change the downstops to 5.5 front and 4.5 rear. Then change the rear shock positions to the 2 position.
I think your oversteed is caused by using higher position in the front shocks than the rear: lateral grip is reduced in the rear into the corner (entry, during and exit), even more imporant during and in the exit, because is where more weight is transfered.
I hope this help ;-)
