Hi guys
Looking for general setup help for running on low grip
My local club runs on a gymnasium floor, and runs on Schumacher mini pins (very eighties and ice racing)

Looking for setup tips to improve the overall setup
I'm running the t4'16 I'm one of my clubs better drivers, many are using the older t3 11/12 which flex and roll better with longer shocks

I've done plenty to improve traction and steering
No roll bars is a must for everyone
We need to use a front gear diff, spool equals massive understeer
Softer shocks makes the car more aggressive, but adds in body roll
Harder shocks have helped to take away body roll
Slim front hexes and front split blocks
Stupidly thin rear diff oil like 450 for traction
Rear droop less then front for the squat And go effect

Any option parts we think would help?
Or tips

Any help would be appreciated

In low grip conditions you need to transfer more weight to the tyres.
Try 350 oil shocks. May be more vertical shocks position (position 3).
Try to up the roll center for example +5 or +1 up.
Fine not use roll bars, try use more downstops for more weight transfer.
I hope this help.
