Good luck at the Nats.
I plan on doing the best I can at the nats. Schumacher needs a face up in the A-main at the nats in the stock class

AusJD2703, take out rear droop first to tighten up the rear of the car and help prevent corner entry oversteer.

Dont reduce castor to 2 deg, it will make the turn in oversteer problem worse.

Less castor, more turn in - initial steering, unstable in a straight line.

More castor more stable around steering centre, more mid corner steering.

And how much crap did you give me for running 19 turn at Reedy and you're running stock at the Nationals?

That's OK, I bit the bullet and signed up for 19 turn and stock foam for Vegas. Running foams for the first time, I didn't think modified would be too smart of a move.

Hey guys, nice job out at the Reedy race. I know you all put in a ton of work for it and it shows. Good luck to all who are heading back out to Cali for the Nat's.

thanks king g,
hey how do u tune with inserts?
what does air gap do?
whats does firmnes do?
also i use sorex medium b's what could i uses to get temps up quicker?
when do u change tire compounds and how can i choose the right tire as our weather has changed drastically and every one is strugglying to find the right tyre, last week we went from sorex 36's to 32's and were still lacking traction.
out temps have went from a cool 22 to about 15'c so we have no clue also the sun is setting earlyier (winter in aus) so track temp is constantly dropping as we qualify and drops as we run the finals any suggestions?

So I take it RacerX is racing stock at the nats? I know you wouldn't run stock, that's even worse than running the "kiss your sister" class (19T)

Big Thanks to WYD for the setup help on my Mi2 EC. This is the best car I have ever bought. I have never been so consistant. What a great combo Schumacher Mi2 EC, Full Throttle motors and batteries.

Glad to have helped. I hope it continues at the ORL for you. I expect the car to work really well at that track to. Maybe a few minor changes but I think this setup will work most places with only minor changes.
