This is a place to come and discuss the trials and tribulations of carpet racing. Ive found thes type of threads ver useful- please read and enjoy. My situation a month ago: (taken from another BB's thread, the same one that I started there)
Hey, I just though I would start a carpet racers forum as we seem to be a minority. I'd like to find out peoples ideas for setups etc. depending on track layout and temperature, Tyres used etc. Personally I used to use a TL01 but now i will be using my new Xray T1. I use TRC foam tires (rear) and Jaco foam tyres (front) and Zip Grip (the cancerous stuff ) with my Xray. I have 1 degree neg. camber front, and 1.5 degrees rear, 0 degree front toe and 2 degrees rear toe in. 6 degrees front castor, a P2K Pro, MTRONIKS sprint ESC (which makes me
- its rubbish) and Acoms Transmitter and Receiver and Sanyo 2400MaH cells. Our track is a medium twisty, predictable layout and is fast in places but with tricky hairpin 's' bends (i race at Teeside-TRCC- in england). My car flies and is geared 93/32 48dp. I will be completely changing my gearing by next time I race, to 120/45, 64dp.
Thanks (in advance) for expressing your opinions,
One more thing, be hospitable to Fiisch.2001, Kart38 and Big Pete if they (or already have) trot(ted) on over here
