Below is a set up Dez Chand use's for the 3Racing F1

I found the sideways damper a little soft on kit oil and three hole piston, so have rebuilt with the one hole piston and kit oil, seems fine for low grip scenarios, will use thicker oil for high grip tracks.

Is your main shock preload wound right up? On the kit spring I am running almost full preload tension to keep the chassis flat and level. I think a slightly stiffer spring would be better so I didn't need so much preload.

Also, I turned my tyres down to 53mm diameter, getting the car lower and improving handling a little all round. I have run as low as 50mm and it was still working well, so plenty of scope on the 55mm Kit tyres!

Lubricate your front king pins so the suspension slides nicely, any notchey ness there and it'll handle oddly.

Make sure your rear pod can swing freely without hitting anything. If it is pushing against body shell or wiring it will handle quite badly and have a tweak.

Make sure your thrust bearing is clean and smooth, clean regularly.
Make sure the thrust bearing washers can rotate on the axle smoothly, any drag there will push the car to one side all the time, I cleaned some of the anodising off the axle to get a better action.

Dial in a soft exponential on your steering and throttle curves if you have a computer transmitter, to give an easy centre feel, improving drivability and straight running.

Make sure you side link rods have no slop, should be free moving but allow the rear pod to remain parallel with the front axle with no side to side movement.

Make sure your steering link rods are as straight and level as possible, any odd angles will induce lots of bump and roll steering. Should be as parallel with the bottom arm as possible, and straight across from servo to steering arm, space the ball joints to suit.

Hope that helps a little.

Thanks for Posting that up Gazza, but you could at least have corrected my spelling, I'd have typed slower if I had known what you were going to use it for ;-)
