Ok here is the setup I have been working on for Med High/High bite carpet with rubber tires. We have run it with mostly Jaco Blues, but also with Sorex and Rp30s. It has worked well with all of them but the latter 2 were a little faster due to increased traction on all 4 corners of the car.
We are all running the Foam 2.5 lipo chassis and the medium rubber topdeck. I'm running the standard rubber wings.
I have also been playing around with swaybars and springs mostly now depending on the traction levels. Some of the guys are running the 1.4 or 1.2 bar and 393 springs up front and 289 springs in the rear with no swaybar.
I like my car a little more aggressive so I have been running the 367 front springs and 307 rear springs and usually no swaybars at all.
This week traction was super high and the front of the car was rolling alot and I tried raising the front roll center to Med blocks, high position. It helped some smooth the car out but didnt seem to improve laptimes.
I would try starting with the setup I have posted here and work from there depending on what your car is doing. Also start with half the front tire sauced and do more or less depending on how you want the car to feel. We have been using Jack the gripper at our track.
Sorry about the ghetto setup sheet I dont have adobe to save the editable setup sheet so this is what you get lol.
If anyone has any questions post them here or PM me.
This setup has been working well for everyone at our track with a top car. A top car has won every week in both rubber classes since we opened our track.
