Paul- When you have run asphalt have you carried your out board toe over from carpet? That race in Socal that you ran a month or so ago did you run all inboard toe?

hey Paul i was at the Winternats last week and i asked you if you have ever tried the long links (links into the blockheads) on the rear of the 009 well i tried it and what i felt it did was give the car more rear bite and smooth the car out but it has less steering . and in my opinion just the long links in the front was way better
i tried this on asphalt

hey paul!

I hav a question for you

What do you change first if you have bad rear traction on carpet indoors?

And what does it do to the car if you have more weight in rear than in front? and if you have more weight in front?

Thanks alot!

I assume that your talking about rubber tires.
for more rear traction i would add rear toe and camber, like 3.5deg toe and 3deg camber, also moove your wing back and your rear wheelbase long.

more weight forward will always have less steering and or more rear traction also. more weight back will have less rear traction or more steering.

Is there any difference with foam tires or does the same principles apply to foams to?

for the most part Yes, I just might aproach it different with foams. those changes would apply but with foams i would most likely suggest a specific rear camber link for starters.

yup, a 118 will hang threw the chassis. with todays HP in mod i like to run the biggest spur possible that way i am also running the biggest pinion to get my gearing and their are more teeth touching at any given time, this makes for less chance of stripping 64p gears.
