Could be as simple as the car is pushing and you are having to turn the wheel too much to stay on line.

Could be too much camber gain in the front suspension. Where is your inner camber link? We pretty much always run the upper middle hole.

How hot is it where you are running (assuming you are outside)? If the track is over 75deg you should be running CS27's or RP30 or 36's.

I usually get a much longer tire life than 2 meetings and was wondering if you know any solutions for this. Thanks
maybe you got a bad pair of cs 22

Hi there

Is there some kind of tracks, which the MI2 are better suited for than others?

Thanks.

The Mi2 can be set up to run on any surface with any tire. We haven't come across a condition where the Mi2, given a good setup and a good driver, couldn't be a winning car.

The Mi2 works well on most surfaces, but it excels on asphalt with rubber tires

How is it with rubber tires on carpet?

It will be different types of carpet, mainly without tire sauce, but once in a while with this messy and dirty fludium I driven my old car pretty far, so I believe I can do the same with any chassis

Its really good on carpet/rubber. That all they run in Europe and Teemu is usually top 3 or 5 at every major race.

The car work killer on carpet with rubber tire's....but we have never run without sauce. I would think that the car would be sort of loose without sauce....but then again with the right set up it might feel pretty dialed.

If no one can run sauce everyone will be in the same boat.

Are you using pre-mounted CS22's or have you glued them onto rims yourself?

Last time I had that problem I was running 24mm tyres on 25 mm rims...
