i.m racing my 414M tom. the track is carpet with a nice technical layout. we use sorex 20 tires. i changed the wheelbase, made it short, to give me better handling and less overteer. i'm using extra stiff springs with 80wt oil in front, blue stab bars using the wcr stab kit, in the rear i used medium springs with 40wt oil and no stab bars.
tested the car with the adjustments a made yday and the car was planted. most of the racers use traction compound, what i did was i tried the set-up without traction compound and was shocked to discover how planted the car was, no oversteer whatsoever.
by the way, shock mounting position i used was no. 3, front and rear, front and center one ways, no belt tensioner.
do u guys have any experience running on carpet? hope u can share set-up tips, i enumerated my set-up, hope u can comment on them, i want to improve by experimenting, a little help please. tanx
