Had a great day today running the new setup that Adrian posted a few weeks back. Ran the setup exactly as he posted it. Ran a practice run and it was really close. 2nd run put on 6 degree caster blocks and the car was about perfect for me. The setup along with the Parma body was super easy to drive fast and very forgiving as well. Next time I run in 2 weeks I think I will rasie the rear roll center from 1mm to 1.25 or possibly 1.5 and see how it goes with that one change. Looking for a tad bit more rotation out of the car but nothing drastic since it is really really good now. Just trying to get every ounce from it I can..........typical racer!!!!!!!!!

Overall great starting setup that is really smooth. Are track is indoor asphalt that is very high bite. I think this will be a good starting setup at alot of medium to high bit tracks.

Carpet v's Asphalt Towers....

I have the asphalt version of the EC which mainly runs outside on tarmac etc. I have recently changed the shock towers to the carpet version (removing the risers at the same time), mainly on the advice of some of the team drivers etc.

I have to say I didn't notice a huge difference.

As it come towards winter I am now starting some carpet racing, tight and more open depending on the venue.

Surely if the top deck is now lower (due to the removal of the risers) the torsional rigidity is now reduced, would it be worth trying the car with the top deck raised up using 2mm shims etc so it's exactly the same height as it was with the risers etc.

Would I be better off going back to the asphalt towers for carpet?

I know some people have used the asphalt towers but still removed the risers, doesn't this mean the camber link has too steep an angle.
