Default Xb2 steering

Hi all. Anyone know how I can make my 17spec xb2 more aggressive on turn in like a b6. My b6 seems pin sharp and my X-ray always seems easier to drive but less aggressive so I want to see if I can make it like the b6. Thanks all.

Iíll give that a try. Thanks for that. I have heard a few of the X-ray drivers I have met saying the car needs more flexibility in the chassis. Would the carbon chassis benefit me at all ?. I was also looking at upgrading it to the 18 spec but itís a lot more expensive to do so and I donít know if itís worth it.

I've just upgraded to the '18 from the old car which had the carbon chassis with narrow rear hangers, and the rest of the usual alu hop ups. Although those upgrades made a big difference, the '18 is better still. But if your gonna upgrade instead of buying new kit, I'd get the '18 alu chassis and the narrow hangers.

The carbon steering extension redrilled to zero slots made a big difference. Itís certainly better.

What surface are you running on? Got a few v.good setups so could possibly help.
Is it entry, Mid or exit steering you're after? On or off power?
The carbon chassis is more reactive than the 16/17 alloy one, but the 18 2.5 chassis is better. My 18ce is a vast improvement over my 17 with narrow hangers and carbon chassis...
