Default carisma GT 14 PRO INDOOR SET UP

Hi im struggling with grip roll indoor racing. apparently the spring kit seems to help eliminate this but you cant get the springs anywhere for these cars at the moment !

I am currently running 45wt shock oil all around and the shocks fully inclined all around, think i have about 2 degrees camber all around.

ride height is about 4 mm all around, i cut the springs down slightly to reduce ride height, which has improved it but 100%.

any other suggestions on what i could do to eliminate the grip roll ?

There's a nice Recoil (Same as Carisma) thread in the Mini section. Here's a link: 1/14 Recoil!!

Associated 1/12 springs work well when cut in 1/2.

You have to set the shock length to control droop. Some shock positions have almost no droop, some have way more so you might want to see what is happening with that.

Foam or rubber tires? Either way put some glue on the sidewall.

I used to run 90wt in the front and 80wt in the rear, but that was foams.
