    I have tried several setups on my geommetry throughout thgis year from mitto daily, to just track, the track & street set up worked ok but then had someone put there own settings on my car and it works ok when throwing it in without being on the wand or initiating with a clutch kick, i can just sway it into a skid but when going on full lock its a cunt to pull back so is going over centre im just wondering isitworth going back to the mitto settings I had or leave this very stable setting on my car but just put my DW lock stops back on.

    Reduce your caster and run a lower scrub radius (higher offset wheels)

    As Mike says, castor is usually the tripping point with overcentering.

    Or move the rack a small amount.

    i been suggested this by having a mate remake one but already have offset spacers and dont need stupid lock really so id rather loose a little lock and be safer not over centering and get used to it again. cheers dude,
