All this oneway talk has persuaded me to order one. After all I run rubber tyres on carpet.

Has anyone produced a setup for a oneway or have any suggestions on what changes need to be made from using a diff?

Cheeers.

I dunno guys... I'm feeling defeated. This car is so fast, but I'm having the worst time being consistent with it. It seems like slight mistakes are much more costly. It's almost as if the car's quick ability to transfer weight works against you if you're not perfectly smooth at all times. :-(

I'm sure just a few small changes the other way to calm it down a bit and you will be smokin.

I ended up with the same thing last year with the mid motor car and when I just found that edge of being too aggressive I backed it off a tick and it was awesome.

Syndrome you still running rubber carpet? If you are that's the beast. If you get out of the groove even just a little it's not pretty. The best setup in the world couldn't stop someone from being loose on rubbers if there is no groove or you drive it in too hard. My car was great at the Gate but if I started driving it like my foam car I could not settle it down to save my life. Just my two cents.
Peace,
C

Na, I went back to foams. The car never felt consistent on rubbers, it was wanting to step out especially toward the later portions of the race. I wasn't driving it hard or overheating the tires, so it was probably just something that needed work with the setup.

With foams, I'm basically running Shreff's Horsham setup with dblpink Prisms all the way around instead of Parma magenta. I tried the magenta Prisms, but it didn't feel right on our track. The car has a ton of steering, holds impressive corner speed and all that, but gives me fits putting it exactly where I want it, and seems to change a lot between races as traction/temp/humidity change. It just doesn't feel precise, I guess. It's probably all in the setup the driver. :-) Maybe I'm not good enough to drive such a precision machine.

The setup I will send you feels pretty good to me on carpet w/ rubber. I just need to get it on a blank PDF to send to you. I thought I had it in an email Schreff sent to me but that was the foam setup, which is also dialed imo.

Did you try Parma magenta tires on it? I tested with Jacos before Vegas and made the car feel completly different. His setup is based on Parma tires which will make a big difference.

Brian,

I haven't, I had a dreadful time with the side walls getting ripped off the Parmas, and even tried more camber to stop it. I really liked the old Parmas, but the Pro 53's not so much. The Jacos are nice, but man, they come unglued easily. I've heard many other people say the same thing, so I don't think I'm alone. I've been regluing them after each race night and that seems to do okay. It's hard to keep it from getting into the sidewalls, though, so I worry it's affecting the car's side bite.

You make a good point about that setup and the Parmas though. I've got a new set sitting around, so I'll give them another shot this week and see how things feel. Presumably, with the larger wheels, the roll center will be slightly changed.

It looks like you guys had fun up there in Omaha. Sorry I couldn't join everybody, my wife wasn't too keen on having me gone on our first anniversary. Good job though, sounds like you had the R working great.
