Default How to adjust steering?


I have a Smartech buggy and where I run is quite hard loose gravel/soil.

What are the best adjustments to make to the steering geometry to get better turn when entering corners?
It pushes in the turns and is best when gassed hard to get oversteer and then steer with the throttle.

I am looking for settings for Toe-in, Camber and Shock settings (hard, soft) for front and rear.

Thanks for your comments.

try removing one of the shims out of the both front shocks. you can also try and camber the front wheel to a negative camber. thats all i know, i know my marder oversteers alot!

You can dial it in to be better, but being a RWD on loose surface it will always push and you will have to use throttle to control cornering. No one can really give you any solid settings for this, trial and error is how it seems to go.
