Ran my car again today on the rug with rubber tires, getting better. The one thing I cant stand though is how the rear end just kinda trails around the track like its weightless, hoping that the extra traction at the IIC will help to solve the problem.

Ran my "big track" setup this weekend and the car was dialed! Made a few changes for the extreme tempature:

-2-hole pistons (drilled 1.2mm)
-40wt oil with Hybrid o-rings (35wt if you have stock o-rings)
-New med/flex rear arms
PW..med flex arms on rear only...why not front?have you tried flexy top deck?
I run on med grip Tarmac with rubbers(sorex 36)Have found Chris Ashton test day setup pretty good..just looking for a little more turn in.temps are usually 30degrees celcius
thanks Bob

I just needed a little more stability in the rear, so I tried the med/flex rears. I will try the new fronts at the next race (Tony P tried the fronts and said they were awesome).

The flexy top-deck is no good (holds tweak)

It's still really close to my nats setup. Are you running a spool or 1-way on your car?

Hey guys how important is the lil 'bridge' that's on the outside of the front arms? I really hate to think that the 3 arms that I have are totally useless because the bridge is broken
