Indoor concrete? You racing on the floor of a warehouse?

I agree with Weylin. I'd start with Teemu's setup and go from there. The only time I raced on concrete it was a brushed concrete parking lot. It tore the hell out of the bottom of the cars and the tires.

That's and hour and a half north from where I'll be in August. I don't think I'll be able to get away for that long but I'll sure as hell try.

Have no fear....DADDY is here If you can wait until the weekend I should have a good oneway set up for the EC. The car is very easy to work on and it's a step up from the old car. I'm still looking for that killer speedworld set up for the car. You can't go wrong with the car though.

Mapquest lied then. I'll let you know when I'm in town. I need to come up. Maybe introduce some of my family that thinks I'm crazy for doing what I do to racing.

We haven't raced there yet this year with the production EC, so it's hard to be sure. Best guess i would say would be Teemu's setup from our national last year. It is on the Schumacher web site under the "Mi2" section (note not EC). However, it should be fine. Put the rear wishbones at "mid/long", rear camber link in lower position on tower, and inner hole on rear hub. The springs are very close to kit whites.

This should be very close on a production car.
Thank's MattW, I will start from there and see if it works. The last time I went in that track, I was half a second off the pace, but I was the only one with spool...

I've come to trust the M6 on asphalt, but now I want to try the parma alpha. I see the parma wing as small and too flexible, but maybe with a protoform wing it would hook well on aspalt. Anyone thats given it a shot lmk, or I'll just try it any ways

John Kerr- I like the aluminum rear hubs, spaced fully forward on the rear arms at 3 (1 deg insert) degrees the car was very stable and on track. Might try the 0 deg insert to get sharper rotation on tighter tracks.

What about the HPI R hubs? doe they work well? Thanks as always.

If you want to try another body for asphalt I would try the all purpose stratus 3.0. The parma alfa is the best foam tire body but for rubber tires I don't think it works very well (and it looks weird because its so slammed for foamies ). If you want to try it I'm not stopping you, I'm just saying I wouldn't get your hopes up . The stratus 3.0 is supposed to give you more steering I hear.
