The Mike/Larry Jackson setup is where I started, great setup!

We don't run the sorex 32 as they have a SUPER narrow temp range, we go straight from Sorex 28 to Sorex 36 when the track temp hits 80F

I've been running this car now on lower bite carpet (Ozite rolled up and re-setup for each race day). The ground below is quite bumpy with some seriously sharp bumps on fast areas (end of straight). I started with Kody's nats setup which made the car completely unpredictable in these conditions, the back end would kick out with no chance of recovery. Bumpy sections and tape sections seemed to suffer the most. I then tried reverse ASYM shocks front and rear, which seemed to help in the bumps and tape lines. I can only guess that the recovery of the tires at high speed helps this.

During my last race my car was way off pace in practice (low-med bite track, but smooth this time), the car was still somewhat unpredictable when pushed hard. I've been told that I have a very aggressive driving style. It was advised that I try Josh's setup from Mile High, which proved to be a seriously game changing setup. I made a few changes to lock in the car under acceleration (shorter rear links, reversed ASYM). I would suggest it to anyone who is having some problems on lower bite / bumpy carpet tracks.

I need an advice.
I just installed new P01-P02 in left front side. After installation, my steering is not working so smooth as before.
When I disconnect the new P01/02 then the steering is smooth again. So the problem is in the P01/02.
Any surgestions about how to solve it, or shall I just leave it, and it might be more smooth after a short while. .

Haven't seen or heard of that before. I'd try running it and then checking if it frees up..

I have seen P02 parts that fit to tight on the ball stud. without the servo arm connected and the P01\2 combo install see if the steering blocks rotate fairly free. If not you'll need to slightly ream out the inside of P02 to free up this joint.

You can try rubbing the turnbuckle threads across a bar of soap or add a small dab of thrust grease.

I will try doing that. yeah, i notice its that the turnbuckles are too tight. One more thing. does the main shaft should have a little bit of play forward and backward? Cause mine doesnt have a play.

Pre tap with a 3mm tap.

I prefer grease or wax, with a tap you'd need to tap one side left handed, a tap would also cut the threads deeper than many turnbuckles use.

You can also squeeze the shank of the cup (where the turnbuckle goes in) with pliers, and then crank the turnbuckle inside it. That'll usually loosen it up a bit. But it can leave marks on the cups, if you're sensitive about that.
