Ive not used my Mi3 much as of yet due to moving house etc. When i have done its only been outdoors.

The thing i have done on other cars to get them going well on rubber / carpet is to go up 1 spring rate higher than you would normally run outdoors. Change the droop so there isnt much at all on my droop blocks and guage it comes out at 6 and 5 depends on the layout of the track. Stops the back end feeling loose i feel. Also put some anti dive on the front of the car.

The big thing to remember is that the grip will always change during a meeting on carpet just because the car isnt to good to start off with doesnt mean it will be when the grip comes up. When i start off in practice the back end normally steps out a bit but then will be planted later on in the meeting.

As ive said this isnt with my mi3 but prob will be the same for anything.

What is your set up so far on carpet and with what tyres ??

I went with Green fronts Blue rears, 2mm uptravel in the front, 1mm uptravel in the rear, 1.5 degree of camber all-around, 5mm ride hieght, and 2.5 degrees of toe in on JACO greens. The car rotates well, doesnt feel too loose, and is pretty easy to drive. You can bearly hear the tires screeching

yo Randy it may sound crazy but I find when I run more uptravel on a 4's the car has more bite try 4mm frt 5mm rear and up 1 rate on all 4 springs

I ran quite a bit of droop, actually really similar to those settings.

I've been getting a lot of PM's with suggestions and such, so I have a lot to try out if I cant get my cars working good for Vegas.

I almost have my 19t car done, I'll have to shoot some pics when I get everything together, kinda went a little overboard on making stuff look cool
