Here is a copy of the setup I have been running in 13.5 rubber. I think it will be a great place to start. If you have any questions just let me know.

What would be the first things you might change for low traction carpet track?

What do you mean by full foam in bladder. Is that both foam pieces or just the larger?

What do you mean by med-soft on the diff. Is that how far you back out the diff screw? Is the like 1/4 turn?

Where can I get an editable setup sheet that I can save? The one on the site tells me I can only print, not save.

regular mazda 6....not the speed
sauce the tires for as long as you can....40-50 mins
if the rear end is loose.....sauce the rear tires for much longer then the fronts....example:sauce rear tires 30 mins before race and sauce the fronts 5-10 mins
run a spool
add rear toe at the hinge pin instead of the upright

thats the kind of stuff I would start with

Both foam pieces, make sure the big one is seated all the way in the rubber bladder

med-loose on the rear diff means its easy to spin by hand but wont slip unless you apply alot of pressure....kind of hard to explain, it a "feel" thing

I used the sheet on the site, had no trouble saving it. Maybe they changed something.

What are you saucing the tires with? And what if you don't have that much time in between heats (club racing)

If i'm looking for traction i'll clean with buggy grip and sauce with jack or paragon whatever the track allows.

If you don't have much time I would sauce as long as possible and maybe try some warmers.

Just to let anyone know who might be interested I contacted TIR by email and asked about TC5 parts and was told that they were all in stock.
