Yes I that would be a wise thing to do :P Tried it today, and it was pretty awsome.. I had to make a few changes to fit me, and our slick conditions. By far the best car i'd had in a long time..

Hi Larry,
I've been running your setup for 2 weekends now. It's generally very good (thanks!)- but I'm trying to get a bit more front end in the car, especially in the low speed corners. It just feels like I'm having to coast for too long in the twisty sections. I'd like the car to carry a bit more speed and maybe rotate a bit more. This is a indoor carpet track with medium grip.

Any suggestions?

if you want the rear to rotate more i would stand rear shocks up on the tower by one hole.

Cheers Luke. The car is not bad in any sense and I've been trying to fix it by adding grip to the front rather than taking it from the rear, but that option is still open to me.

What setup have you been running for UK carpet tracks?

hey guys,

I'm running STD bottom and top decks, and medium front wing but std rear. This makes the flex of the car much more equal front to rear I feel.

I'm working on desgning a few parts I want to test, but we'll see how they come along in time.

Thanks
Luke

Luke, are you running the middle post on the medium wing?
So you found the front was a bit soft on flex? What were your symptoms or how has it changed the car?

What changes did you make. I tried his setup and the back end will not stay in place. My car is completely stock. Our track is still low on traction for now.

Thumbs up

I'm running in 17.5 rubber class on carpet.

And have been very happy with the car, winning races, the last one i won all qualifies and the 3 finals! it was on a medium grip track with sorex tyres.

Were running 2s lipo and minimum 1300 gram weight, i have settled about 1340 gram, and there is no sign on grip roll, just lots of corner speed

I am running almost the basic rubber set-up, with only a few changes that have helped the car to be even more easy to drive.

PM for set-up if interrested.

Ive studied and compared your set-up to mine and I have one question. Is there a particular reason you run the 1.2mm/3hole pistons vs the 1.0mm/3 hole pistons? Or, is that just what you grabbed.

I have been running the 1.0/3hole with lighter oil.
