Vehicle Handling Troubleshooting Guide

  • The vehicle is unresponsive to turn-in inputs: Increase negative front camber (should not exceed -1.5o), if you like toe in your tunes use a positive toe angle (not to exceed +0.5o ), softer front damping, or stiffer rear damping may help with weight transfer.
  • RWD car oversteers at the slightest bump or around turns during while on the throttle: Lower the rear differential driving lock percentage, make use of a less aggressive rear anti-roll bar (ARB) and use a more aggressive front anti-roll bar setting, increase negative rear camber angle (should not exceed -1.0o), lower rear toe angle (try +0.2o or +0.1o), softer front bump and rebound, and softer rear bump and rebound (keep it reasonable).
  • Loss of rear grip after a corner has finished: Use a less aggressive rear ARB, make use of a more aggressive front ARB, decrease the rear differential braking lock.
  • Experiencing bog in hairpins & tight corners: Make sure you have all of your upgrades. Lower the 1st gear ratio, increase rear driving lock, shift up to 70% of the torque to the rear (70% recommended, perhaps 80% on AWD flying 555 banners), and increase center viscous differential settings.
  • Loss of lateral grip on entry to hard braking turns: Shift the brake bias to the front (around 65-70%), increase the rear rebound rate and increase the front bump rate.
  • Rough ride through yumpy sections: Raise your ride height in the front and back, lower the spring rates front to back, increase fast bump/rebound damping rates, lower the fast thresholds.
  • Poor handling & response on tarmac: Lower the ride height while increasing the spring rates, increase bump and rebound rates, increase negative front camber, increase positive front toe angle.
