That seemed to cure it for me. Hope that helps!
Thanks! I will give this a try this weekend!

If you don't mind, I was wondering what kind of changes I can expect to make going from carpet to asphalt?

Depending on tyres, I have been slowly working towards only changing springs.
That's between flowing outdoor tracks with Sorex 32's and tighter indoor tracks on Sorex 28's. It's been working well lately

Hey Paul, I was watching the World Championship TC races in Holland last week. I'm sorry that the rain messed up the 5th and 6th Qualifiers at MACH.

I saw this pic of you on RedRC.net and I was wondering what happened just before they snapped this pic...

Normally you just need more steering on asphalt, so normal changes for asphalt would be more front camber, less rear camber, less rear toe, shorter wheelbase in the rear or more weight back on the chassis. that is a start if your car is pushing on asphalt. Thanks!

Hey Paul,

On your X12 during worlds, what side springs were you using? I saw that they were red, and I also think I've seen you with green ones. Just wondering who makes these color codes ones.

Thanks.

On a t3 12 or sedan in general, is there a way to set the belt tension properly? I don't really know what I'm looking for with belt tension.

Hi, the side springs that i had on my car are sold By RC America as a kit of 5 different springs. red is a med/soft spring.

Thanks

Their is no tool or sound method for setting belt tension. I know this is not a good way to explain it AT ALL!!. But you dont want them tight and you dont want them loose. but you want the front a little tighter than the rear.
wish i had a more accurate way to explain it.

Paul, I know you were going to try cars with and without the new central servo mounting method. Did you prefer it or not find any difference.

Thanks

Hey Paul,
Whats your recommendation for using LG1/LG2 with heat on solaris hards? Have you found anything that works specifically at Leisure Hours? Thanks!

Paul, Do you have the front tighter because you run mod which can cause the belt to slip or is there a handling advantage? I tend to run my rear slightly tighter than front but both pretty slack (13.5 and 10.5 boosted) is it worth me adjusting them.
