This is mainly to improve ON-POWER steering. Off-power steering isn't as important because you just tap the brakes and then power out of the corner. Also, this setup improves upon the braking performance.

The basic premise:
  • Lower rear camber link
  • Reduce rear negative camber
  • Reduce rear toe
  • Add small amount of front toe out (1 degree is plenty)
  • Softer front springs/shock oil
  • Stiffer rear springs/shock oil
  • Lengthen front camber links
  • Lay down front shocks more than rear
  • Add a little weight to front
  • Softer front tires than rear tires
If you feel like you still need off-power steering just add a tad of drag brake and you're all set

The basic premise:
Lower rear camber link (stock)
Reduce rear negative camber
Reduce rear toe (zero is stock)
Add small amount of front toe out (1 degree is plenty)
Softer front springs/shock oil
Stiffer rear springs/shock oil
Lengthen front camber links
Lay down front shocks more than rear
Add a little front droop
Reduce rear droop
Add a little weight to front
Soft front tires/Medium rear tires

Well done!
Nice detailed description

What's the best way of keeping my raider bls straight? It's new, only a few weeks old. Had it out three times on concrete street and each time I'm always adjusting the ST-Trim after a few runs. Any ideas?

Check to make sure the droop is even on both sides. If you're running toe-out or the linkages aren't even that cause it too. Check camber as well. If one side has more camber than the other the other side will have more forward traction and will steer that way
