A bunch of guys in the Painting section will be able to help as well. 'cSeils" I think his tag is, advertises mainly on the US VTA thread as well.

Yup. Just a humble little M03. Old TRF shocks, old M03 front uprights, 3Racing axles, Orca brushless system, Spektrum rx and a good servo. Thinking about adding a rear sway bar.

I notice a lot of racers use hard inserts up front and soft at the rear, what's the reasoning behind this?

How does the insert affect lateral and longitudinal grip levels?

I've tried m-grips all round on carpet with just soft inserts and was pretty impressed with the grip they provided.

More grip on the back with softer insert. Typically the front is setup a bit stiffer than the rear, so there will be a bit of understeer rather than oversteer.

I'm having some front end traction issues but the car is perfectly balanced through the bends. Current setup for ozite carpet is:

Front
Kit 60d radials soft insert
Blue springs
#700 oil 3 hole
Shocks in outermost hole
Ta-03 diff, very tight with AWG.
5mm ride height

Rear
m-grip soft insert
Red springs
#400 oil 3 hole
6mm ride height



When I tried the m-grips, soft inserts, on all four corners, I could brake far later and the car accelerated a lot quicker but the balance wasn't quite there in the bends. Too much steering, a little loose at the back on corner entry. My fastest lap was no quicker but my average lap time was over a second faster.

Will the m-grips with hard inserts sort this?

ETA M-05 chassis

Lower rear ride height and try before changing the insert on the front.

Yes, but what about the vacuum cleaner that appears to be coming out of the roof?
