Gear it to the moon? You mean this car works well with high rollout?

I was running indoor carpet. My steering is enough in the way that I do not need to full lock in order for my car to turn in nicely.

Carpet is CRC carpet and the grip is relatively good. Am using purple/grey now.

I will try some of your suggestions next race. Thanks!

Like ckearns said try lilac or even double pink fronts. The goal is to get around the track with your front wheels turning as little as possible. This means you have achieved the lowest slip angle in the front tires and you will have the best corner speed.

You should only need full lock on the tightest corner on the track and your steering dual rate should be less than 60%...maybe less than 50% with a good setup.

Ok thanks! Mine was at 90 or so. So should I increase front steering?

Yeah, you need to generate more steering in the setup for your track. I would bump up your side dampening to 7000 wt. and go to .018 front springs and try 2 x pink fronts and yellow rears. If that is too much try the lilac fronts and sauce a little more of the front. Maybe 3/4 of the inside front. You shouldnt need more than 60% D/R unless you have your endpoints turned down. If you can, post a top and side view pic of your car so we can see if there are any noticable changes that can be made

Hi Jason,

I finally strapped in the 5.5 today at CEFX. Wow, the car was awesome and I was able to be really consistent lap after lap. TQ'd over some great competition, had fast lap, and was winning the main but got a bit greedy trying to go even faster and got the car cartwheeling after clipping a corner. It ended up popping the pivot ball out of the center pivot.

I definitely could not have run the laps I was running with the car the BM12R replaced. This car feels better every race day and every time I make a small change. Lots of folks were checking it out today at the track.

So, super car and it is a total blast to drive.

I took some pics of my car and will post them on here in a bit.

-Rich

Cut the tires down buddy. They look pretty big and will kill some of the cornerspeed. Have you tried running without the tweak screws? I prefer it that way but some people like them. Just curious.

I tried without the tweak screws whole night until the last run. It improved my lap times by 0.1s.

Rear tire is at 1.8 and front around 1.7 is it too big

I will reach that diameter next race

Maybe my problem with speed is due to the tire compound. Does softer compounds suit this car more?

Anyway by using the tweak screws, is the car supposed to get more reactive?
