What did you change to keep the rear wheel down?
I did what I could without changing parts.

- Setting the rear sway bar to lowest setting (20mm) did not solve the problem.
- Removing it completly did not solve the problem completly. So I had to set the front damping to maximum setting to keep the rear wheel on the ground.
- I had no front sway bar (it is extreme, but it was working pretty well), so I installed the front sway bar back.

At that time, the car was understeering even with some trail braking. I tried to put some old front pad to make the car turn in better when trail braking and it helped a little. But the car beging to be very unstable. The track (a parking lot with some up and down section to help drain the water) was bumpy as hell.

This was during the worst event I had last year. After that event, I tried to add some toe out in the rear. Help a little bit but the car was ok on entry but oversteering on exit So I was not able to accelerate as hard as I did in the past.

This is when I tried to set the DCCD more toward full lock. The car was then easier to predict. I beging to set it back to its original setup and it worked correctly.

And here we are.

I have found a good deal on a used resr LSD. I will try that.

If you have some answer or suggestion, I am open to try things.
