Ah, foam tires. I didn't catch that on your first post. I don't' have any experience with that. Maybe one of our rug rats we have on here can point you in the right direction.

I notice you haven't given your droop settings.
Set the front droop to at least 1mm less than the rear, and set the rear to give almost maximum travel.

You also might want to get the extra stiffer roll bars and fit the black one to the front.

Adding lots of rear droop (maxing out extension of shocks) will not give you added rear grip, If anything it will cause exessive weight transfer forward to the front tires on corner entry, causing oversteer.

Adding rear droop would only help the problem if you had very little to begin with and the car wasnt able to roll at all.

The first thing I notice is the tires. The proper foams for carpet are not rated by shore (only nitro foams). I would recommend Jaco Double pink/Orange fronts and Double pink rears (58mm or smaller).

As for the setup:
Front oil and spring are to soft; use a 33lb xray spring with 70wt oil.
Rear oil is to stiff; stay with the same spring, but use 40wt oil.
Droop; 1.5mm front & 2mm rear...More rear droop will give more steering.

Refer to the setup in the manual for foam tires

Hey Nemisis.

First off take the spool out and place a reg diff in the front. espcially with the added grip fromt he carpet. those 35 shore tires you are using are more meant for Nitro racing on Asphalt. Pick up a set of Jaco foam d/pink rear and d/pink/orange fronts. ( don't forget to Glue the edges with CA) You could bring you oil weight in the back down. The spring not sure what the weight or what kind your using.

here a great set up for carpet by PW

Here is what I am currently running for foam stock using the carpet chassis:
40weight shock oil all around
25lb springs front
17.5lb springs rear
shocks 3 out from center on both front and back
.5mm spacer under rear hinge pin mounts
.5mm kickup in the front with stock spacers
1mm spacer under ball stud on the rear blocks
magenta and cyan foams(for temp colder weather)

I've only raced once so far outside, so I haven't had much time to get it to where I like. The rear was a little loose, so I changed it to a .5mm spacer under the hinge pin mounts. I may also go to a shock oil with less viscosity(35, maybe 30). I will be running outdoor again this weekend and will let you know of any changes I make.

Those will get the job done. I'm not to sure what to use as for foams on Asphalt. as most of us run rubber on Asphalt and foams for carpet. maybe some out out there would be able to help you out. The shore 40 are more of temp thing(I could be wrong) so these might just work for you instead of going to a set of Jaco's.

Nemisis, If your track is medium bite copy the setup exactally from the book for carpet. I don't remember if it tells you 33Lb springs for the front, but that is where you want to be. If your track has a lot of bite then you want to try PW's Snowbirds setup. It will get you very close to where you need to be. If you still have questions shoot me a PM and I will try to help you out.

Thanks

Bob

we run 35front and rear on medium bite asphalt, 40 is n bit hard so rear end comes loose and the front end tends to push on power
