Need some help here guys.....have a ford escort that we run in what they call Hobby Stox around here. What can I do to make this front wheel driver go through the corners better. Do we use same theory as our Rear drivers. Tire pressures, weights, anything would be appreciated. This is a new class around here and most are having trouble with bad push through corners. Thanks

Hey,I race a FWD Dodge Daytona and what we have found out is that ( if it is legal in your class ) setting the camber a few degrees ( leaning the top of the wheel in towards the car ), on the right side provides better traction in the corners. You can also set the camber on the rear wheels 2-3 degrees.Also, if you set the toe to the neutral position; or even perhaps just a bit toed out, tires leaning in towards front of car; ex.---> / \ .

Really hope this helps...
