Any suggestions as to what to do first? Got a big race tomorrow and want to get it sorted!
Thanks in advance
A few of the UK team drivers have been really happy with their cars on carpet. The 2 big changes that we have made from the kit set up is going from 1.6/1.4mm roll bars to 1.4/1.2mm roll bars, just to soften the car up and give it a bit of roll. With the kit set up it stays very flat.
We also always run 1mm shims on the front and rear hubs and raise the camber link up 1 hole all round. This makes the car much easier to drive.
They are the 2 things I'd definitely suggest trying first.
Hope this helps
