I am really liking the Photon. I have been running it with rubber tires and 17.5 in a 10.5 foam class. I am able to run lap the same lap times with them! My problem is that the car is loose on corner entry. My lap times are inconsistant because of this. I attached my set up so if anyone can help me?

1) Ditch the rear bar.
2) Put a 1.2 bar on the front (or no bar).
3) Move your rear shock position in one hole at the tower.
4) Change rear camber to 2.5mm.
5) Raise ride height to 5.2F & 5.4R.

Can someone give me a good foam tire set-up? My local hobby shop still runs foam. I also need a rubber tire set up so when I go to bigger races and other tracks that run rubber I'll have a set-up for my rubber tire car. Thanks
