Thanks for the input!
I like the feel of it...but the rear gets loose on me on the 2nd half of a run. With my limited rug & setup experience (in 3rd season racing) I don't have much to compare it to except what my old tc4ft felt like...I eventually got it dialed for my track but that is my only reference for foam TC.
I did run withOUT any rear sway bar but was running sliver bar up front at the time...on the slow tighter turns the rear tires would lift -late entry to mid corner...adding the rear swaybar back help keep the chassis more level and rears planted. still have the loose 2nd half of a run problem...
Another thing I tried was using .5 degree hubs...I had to cause I broke a 1 degree and didn't have any 1 spares at the time. I'm back on 1 degree now. I prefer less rear toe for higher corner speeds but definitely didn't help my car getting loose later in a run!
the common tire for my track (ThunderRC/nashville) jaco double pinks. I run them on all corners and dope w/ paragon the fronts 1/4 or less and rears full.
