Here's the setup I ran all of qualifying at the mains, I didn't need to make any changes to the car it was so good. The setup was nearly identical to the one I started with from home, which proves that two tracks with different carpet and traction can work with nearly the same setup and only minor changes. But I will warn you, nearly everyone that's tried this setup hasn't liked it because it has so much steering... but it is very fast if you can drive it.

Front end:
RIDE HEIGHT: 5.4mm
ANTI-ROLL BAR: silver 1.2mm
CASTOR: 4
KICK UP: none
ANTI DIVE: none
TOE: .5 out
ROLL CENTER: 1.5mm
CAMBER: -1.5
BELLCRANK: center hole + 3mm shims under ballstud
STEERING KNUCKLE: front hole
LOWER SHOCK LOCATION: outer hole
UPPER SHOCK LOCATION: middle hole
CENTER TRACK ROD LENGTH: stock
INNER CAMBER LINK LOCATION: upper hole
WHEELBASE: med/long
NOTES: no riser plate under bulkheads. No wheel spacer on outside of hex. Orange hybrid o-rings in shocks. Standard aluminum arm mounts.

Front shocks:
OIL: 35wt
SPRING: Schumacher blue 16lb
PISTON: 3 hole
LENGTH: 61.5mm
DROOP: 2.5mm uptravel

Rear end:
RIDE HEIGHT: 5.5mm
ANTI/PRO SQUAT: none
ANTI ROLL BAR: black 1.5mm
TOE IN: 1.5
ROLL CENTER: riser plate + .5mm
CAMBER: -1.5mm
WHEELBASE: med/short
REAR HUB LOCATION: center
OUTER CAMBER LINK LOCATION: inner hole
OUTER CAMBER LINK SHIMS: none
INNER CAMBER LINK LOCATION: upper hole
LOWER SHOCK LOCATION: 2nd hole in from outside
UPPER SHOCK LOCATION: 3rd hole in from outside
NOTES: no riser plate under bulkhead. Plastic spacer on outside of hex. Orange Hybrid o-rings in shocks. Diff wont slip.

REAR SHOCKS:
OIL: Schumacher 35wt
SPRING: Schumacher white
PISTON: 3 hole
LENGTH: 62.5mm
DROOP: 2mm uptravel

Other:
BODY: Protoform Mazda 6
CHASSIS: Carpet Spec 2.5mm
TOPDECK: Asphalt 2mm
FRONT DIFF: oneway
ESC: Novak GTX
CELLS: EA Motorsports IB4200 WE
MOTOR: EA Motorsports Komodo
TIRES: RP30GL handout

If someone could put this on a setup sheet on one of the sites like Gearchart or the Schue Pitspace that would be cool .

Great job Weylin-if every rubber tire car looked as good as yours, I think youd convert a lot more foam drivers to rubber tires!!

But we all know, but most of us wont admit-its mostly in the wheel!!!
