I am having troubles turning, the track is rough and dry slick with 6 180* switch backs/turns and 2 90* turns. Here is what I have..
Front
Dif-3K
Shock-16mm-32.5-stock springs
Piston 6 Holes I think 2 holes are at 1.4 and the other holes are stock sizes.
Top shock holes are in the middle and bottom shock holes, out side.
Steering slider is in the middle.
I am using the 22* Caster angle block.
Front 5* Standard Kick up (is this also anti squat?)
Not sure how to measure Toe in/out
Ride height is level (using rebound stops)
Anti-roll at 0

Center diff
Spider 3K


Rear
Shocks 16mm
Springs Stock Silver
Oil 32.5-Piston 6 Holes I think 2 holes are at 1.4 and the other holes are stock sizes.
Diff 1K
A little toe in not sure how to measure. (No tools)
Top hole for the shock is second in from the out side, and bottom hole I am using the out side.
Back anti squat/kick up Front hole is 01 (bottom hole) rear hole is 3*(outside).. Probably giving it toe in?
Rebound stop/ride height is level maybe slightly above level.

Kind of funny .. I did a search for tips/settings on driving on a dry slick track and found my question from 2008 not answered. Can someone please assist?

Been said is a slick track, My guess is the in the turns the buggy is sliding?

1. Tires are the must importantan upgrade, like Caliber M3, Bow tie in soft, AKA Ibeams soft or super soft.
2. front Toe out at 2deg.
3. adjust the CG to 28mm fr/27mm rr
4. 40wt on front shocks/ rear shocks try 27.5wt
5. Try 5/5/2 in the diff.
6. Adjust the brake with more load in the back than the front.

Try this in this order one change at a time and test. Keep a smooth triger.
This is all sujestions that must of them work for some not for others, is up to your driving style.

Can also try reducing the caster, and front arm kick up. Less will give better low speed steering/more better high speed steering. I ran about 19 degree front caster with a think was (-) up for the front arm bushing (I think it equals 6 degree of arm kick up). This is better I think on lower traction surfaces with more 180's like you're describing.

Like mentioned above, no chassis set up can replace good tires. So make sure you're running the tire that will work the best for that track, and then make the chassis setup changes...

Hope this helps...
