Hey Gary...Yes and as for setups, I haven't run foam since carpet nats and I had major electronic issue there

The only setup info for foams is from our support drivers that race on medium to low-bite tracks.

I just updated my carpet setup on www.gearchart.com . It is on a medium/high bite carpet track. Just look for the one updated today.

Mo, the black bar you listed up front, is that an HPI or Schi bar? Looks like no shims under the rear mounts and that you're using the kit inner suspension mounts and not the aluminum ones? What shocks were you using with which brand #4 pistions? A lot questions I know, and I'll have more, trust me Like what do you do to this setup when bite comes up?

It is the Schui black sway bar and no shims under the stock suspension mounts all around. The shocks are the stock schumacher shocks with 4 holes open, but stlnlst has also run this setup with Tamiya shocks with #3 pistons and the same oil. I have not really had to make any changes as the bite comes up. I'm still looking for a little more steering out of the setup which may be good on a really high bite track. Next time out I am probably going to try raising the reall suspension mounts a little or adding anti-squat. If the bite comes up really hard and the car starts to get really twitchy or wants to traction roll, the first thing I would probably do is change to 2 degree caster blocks.

Mo's set up works killer. I'm also looking for a bit more steering but due to my driving stlye I'm looking for something a bit different than Mo. I think that Mo is looking for a bit more mid to exit steering while I'm looking for a bit more steering off power. If I can get the car to rotate a bit more in the corners without having it really dig in entering a corner I'll be happy. Try the set up out.....you'll be happy.

Have you guys tried adding a rear bar to free up the back end more or is it more of a front end not having enough bite problem than a rear having too much bite? I'm feeling lazy, is the black bar thicker or thinner than the stock one?

PW's up there. He and Hodge are two of the best class acts in any pits any where.

stlnslt try drilling an extra hole above the front middle camber hole raising it will give you more camber gain .

Or add a 1/2 mm shim under the rear front arm pivot for anti dive it will make the car turn in quicker (opposite of kickup).

Gary, the black bar is thinner than stock - think it's 1.5mm from memory. I have some in a bag, but haven't taken them out yet!!

I was thinking of adding anti squat to the rear but it's 2nd to try on my list. There's one camber change in the rear I'd like to try before I try that. So on the front camber positions you have that hole drilled creating a 3rd row of holes?
