Hi. To me a car that rolls over the rear more will be less responsive going in to the corner then have more steering coming out of the corner, it will not drive as direct or twitchy with more rear roll. I also feel like a car that rolls over the rear can sometimes have more rear traction at high speeds. easier to drive in sweeping sections.
Okay, so at my track I am having two problems...
1) I am pushing as I enter the turn and need to use brake to get the car to swing around. I know it is mainly my driving but is there anything I can do to get the car not to push into the corners and thought the sweeps.
2) we have some bigger sweep turns at the end and beginning of the straight that I have to reduce too much throttle to keep from pushing. I am loosing too much ground here. How can I get more front end grip with out sacrificing rear grip?
I went back to the stock rubber tire setup from the xray site. Seems like going with the 1 degree hubs would help keep the rear grip up when doing changes to the front to help get more steering.
Hi. here are some options
narrower front hexs: the car will definately cut in to the corner harder.
0deg rear uprights: this will also help the car with initial steering.
front wheelbase: longer front wheelbase will increase steering, when you do so also move your ackermann shimming forward the same amount to keep the same ackermann.
Lay down rear shocks: this will increase your rotation in the center of the corner and in sweeping corners.
More front camber: More front camber will also add steering all around.
I would think that one or more of these adjustments could help or cure both of your problems.
