Whats a good setup apart from the stock setup for a smaller 80 x 40 carpet layout? I have the direct drive and the ball diff already. Thanks

Front
FShock 60.5 #3 Pistons Blue Springs 400wt oil
Copper roll bar Front Shock #1 on the shocktower Camber link #2 or #3 front arms #2 on chassis shock #2 on the arm. 3 deg caster blocks#2 on the block. 5mm ride height. 1deg front camber

Rear
59.5 RShock #3 pistons Yellow Springs 350wt oil
Shock #3 on the tower Rear Camber link mounted to the bulkhead cap. Shock mounted to #2 on the arm Arm mounted #2 on chassis 2 degre toe in blocks Arm mounted on bottom hole of blocks. 5.5mm rear ride height. Graphite Pro Arms used instead of Worlds Arms. TQ Orange used for traction additive

Set-up for ROAR Carpet Nationals min required ride height was 5mm and control tires Take Off 27s with stock inserts. Highest finishing Yokomo 6th Place Stock Class.

Try this as a starter and make adjustments.

Both one-ways used, would not use a front diff unless is was outlawed. Don't want start a debate, and will not, but truth is I believe you will be faster with a one-way once you learn to drive with it. It is much harder to drive a one-way car than a diff car.

I think the new high roll center set-ups may be better. We are using one now on asphalt and it is extremely good, we will be using it this winter on carpet. The High Roll center is the set-up Chris Tosolini used to win the Novak and the Carpet Nationals in Mod.

007Yoshi have you had a chance to run your car at all or do you have only one track to race at. I know the one is closed for a few more weeks as you mentioned in a earlier post.

Man I feel for you buddy. I just put on a bunch of new GPM stuff and I want to test my car out but can't make it for another week. I put on some new 4mm thick front and rear graphite shock towers (very nice ) and new GPM blue front 5 degree caster blocks and blue alum. steering hubs. The graphite towers are the nice woven graphite type. Man at 4mm thick they are super strong. This week would have been great racing weather as it has been raining on and off since Thursday.

I want to race!!!!!

I run indoor asphalt with foam tires at our local track. I guess with rubber tires on carpet I would try a setup with a little lighter oil and a little lighter spring. I guess a setup with 35 to 50wt oil and yellow or green springs.

I imagine with rubber tires on carpet traction is a little harder to get than when I run foams on carpet.

Hi Guys.

Greetings from Malta.

We started our National championships yesterday, with some fairly good results for my Yoke.

I finished 2nd in both finals, so it's not a bad start. I am racing in stock this season. Son Josh won the mod class with his TC3, so you could say we had a good day.

I got a bit of a scare a couple of days ago. After practicing, setting up, etc for weeks, and having got it to run really well, i weighed it. Wow! I found I needed 60 grams of weight. I put the weight in the empty space behind the cells but that upset the handling. ventually I moved half of it (30 grams) up front, between the steering pivots, which brought the handling back to normal.

But that extra weight lost me so much straight line speed!

Next round next Sunday. i'll see what i can do till then.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
