But I know what you're talking about. I have tried all the tires and inserts I could think of (I am not actually gluing the tires anymore since it makes no difference and I was running out of rims, I am only testing the car with a silvercan, so I can pop the tires off quickly and pop in a different tire or insert or more foam, etc).
Anyway, I'll keep trying and pop a question here every now and then. At the moment S grips with TC Sorex medium A type inserts cut down to size and soft Tamiya foam seem to grip best on our carpet. I can drive the car with a very smoothly controlled trigger finger without spinning out, but I am not fast.
And I agree, suspension is a joke on my car. The suspension arms flex to the max before the damper shows any sign of operation.
And by the way, someone was saying some pages back that M05PRO kits are gone. For someone whoy wants one really really bad, I know where two kits are on the shelf and may be persuaded to disclose the location.
