No worries.
I have a fast servo in the car but dailed it a bit down on speed.
So doing the same as you do.
Not running expo as i hate it.
Also not running 235MM cars indoor as the tracks are to narrow.
Except for the race i had in the beginning of the year in Germany.
But that was on a 220 meters large indoor asfalt track with insane grip levels

Regards Roy

On asphalt I hadn't thought about a push in my car being caused by a fast servo. So I was thanking you for the tip. My solution for asphalt would be to slow the servo speed down via expo and dual rate, assuming my car has a push I can't shake with setup changes. This way I don't have to swap servos for different surfaces.

That track is at Jestetten south Germany.
It is build above a paintball arena and it was the host of the unofficial European championship Pro10 beginning of this year.
Next pics are from my home track.
It is a great track for TC but due to the tight corners a bit less for Pro10

Regards Roy

That looks very cool, but I am scared to think of how fast it is. A friend raced 235mm pan cars on a curb track for a little while in the mid 2000s. He called a pan car with a 7 turn a "spinning disk of doom" ..lol

Our track will only support so much speed. I'm guessing a well tuned 17.5 will turn just as fast a lap. Less potential for speed (chaos) on the short straights, tight turns and general confined spaces.

Unfortunately, the Jestetten indoor track is closed down.

I believe only two days after the EC.
Crying shame if you ask me, that track was awesome...

I believe it was something about certain licences that the building owner did not have or not correctie...
