Re: Got the CS kit installed...Now how do I get more drift angle

i had the same problem with you and the guys here helped me a lot.so here are my recommendations: 1)if you can reduce rear toe to 1d or 1.5d.1d is enough for stability but in my opinion at 60% that you are now 3d toe is more than needed.i know this is the manufacturer's toe but i would like you to s...

Re: Got the CS kit installed...Now how do I get more drift angle

Please tell us the following so we can help:
1)shock oil and springs
2)rear toe+front toe
3)shock position
4)ride height
5)ackermann

And in my opinion you really need to let the car have droop so it is easier to start a drift when you let go throttle

Re: 100% overdive not holding angle-help!

thanks for the answer.i must tell you that the angle gets bigger only when i release throttle but as soon as i start to counter steer the car straightens up and i gain grip which is undesirable.also here is the setup viewtopic.php?f=34&t=2512.

Re: Hard Springs

Soft springs allow a lot of weight transfer which leads to start a drift but in the same time it gives you control of that drift.That is why everybody starts to set up their car with soft springs and light oil.The reason this is happening is because we run on plastic or hard rubber tires.As weight t...
