Hi, need some help for the set up in my type r.
Here will start to race asphalt rubber, untill now we run foams and have no experience with rubber for the first race i have in two weeks in this track

youtube.com/watch?v=v56ab3yWAlo (I can't post url??)

(i am the first car untill i made a mistake and broke the caster block, not the best day for me)
The track have medium to low grip and very bumpy in the fast curve at the end of the straight.
With foams the car with the standart set up is good and only feel a little of understeer when on power.

I think you need to post a few more times, then your posted links will be active.

That track looks very slick with many cars appear to be pushing and/or drifting through corners. I've had my setup on very "green" grooved outdoor tracks to high bite indoor tracks. My setup is usually only 1 or 2 adjustments from being really good for me from my standard setup. Go to http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/losi...sLosiJRXS.html and look at a few setups and experiment. As long as the setup is proven somewhere it should be within a few adjustments of your track.

As for the bumpy section you can experiment with a little front kick-up. That will help the car absorb the bumps a bit and bigger pistons. If the bumps are only in one section of the track I would probably just deal with it and attack the rest of the track and deal with the bumps. If the entire track is bumpy I would find something to work in bumps.

Hi, thank yuo for the answers

This track is fine but there usually some humidity and low temperature in the asphalt, and we run this year with control tire of 35 foams,
in the video the guy of white car is sliding a lot jeje but i canīt complain abut grip i'm very happy with the car.
I will try the set ups you posted.
Another question:
I run with front diff, is better for this kind of tracks with many hairpins or is better spool?

Thank you again.

A front diff is generally better for hairpins and 4 degrees caster. As traction rises, you can adjust exponential on your radio to help with oversteer.

I personally prefer to run a diff, and adjust it to get the desired response. I find that with a spool, you put more stress on your tire, creating more tire wear than needed.

I mix it up w/ the sorex and the rp's depends on the track surface and the temperature.

All

When mounting the anti roll bars what is the prefered position for the links to the arms as this is obviously adjustable. I have always gone to the very end of the roll bar but have seen them with up to 10mm of roll bar poking out the the end. This is clearly a tuning option to adjust stiffness of the roll bar but whats best or most used position?

Thanks

I mount mine with the ball towards the shock tower and then put it flush with the end of the bar.
