Need a setup for carpet and asphalt
This is what I run on asphalt (it's a 104WGP... but with a std 104 front end).
Camber - 1.0°
Toe - 2.0° out
1mm shim under inner ball joint
Inline steering hub
5mm Ride Height
Tamiya silver (Soft) spring, with AW greese on the kingpin
3Racing 1.3mm Tbar, 1-2turns out of centre screw
5mm Ride height
Tamiya Red (Soft) centre spring, Losi 25Wt oil, 3 hole piston, two o-rings inside shock under piston.
Shock lower ball joint unscrewed two turns.
3mm shims under rear ball joint
Optional RM01 Oil damper - 1500wt oil
Battery - Shorty 2s, all the way forwards (esc, receiver, PT behind pack)
Servo with spline upright, 6mm of shims on horn for correct bumpsteer
R-Sector Wide track (190mm) and LiPo top deck (all posts used)
Rear diff - 103 Thrust race, 3mm ceramic balls, diff set for a smidge of slip.
Bodyshell & wings - 3Racing 113 shell. Lexan Front wing, TRG Advance rear, and TRG diffuser.
Additive - Tweak, 15mins F&R full width
Motor - D3.5 21.5t, 88 Spur, 35t Pinion, Timing cranked max!
Esc - HW XtremeStock, '508 v3' Blinky, Punch Max, Brake Max, 5% Drag brake.
The car does handle differently to TCS tyres, and surprisingly, you may need to use the brakes to help it turn.
Main things I tweak from that setup are;
Roll Damper - thinner oil for faster turning, thicker for more stability
T-bar Centre Screw - 1/4 turns at a time, screw in for more steering, out for stability.
Front arm shims - More shims for more front bite, less to knock the edge off
Shock length - Longer for more highspeed steering, shorter for less
Overall, that works pretty well for my driving style.
