Crono - Check out the setups on Losi's website... there are several carpet setups on there... at the very least - you will have an idea which direction you need to be headed in!

In general your carpet set-up will begin at the stiffer end of your asphalt set-up. Also usually measures are taken to remove steering as traction is usually abundant.

Of coarse this all depends on what for tires you have to run, if it's rubbers then the set-up will be softer and foams the set-up will be stiffer......

(im using the blue belt)

I use the blue belt also got the yellow but never got the chance to try it out. I hear clicking sounds, i always thought it's because you let the belt loose so it can skip a little. When i make the belt tight it stops making that clicking sound. is that suppose to happen or what? o yeh is yellow belt better than blue?

if you have yellow belt run it Its smoother and more efficient than blue ,,, but blue always seemed to work till it snapped......run yellow its better on car....2cents

Your spur is 90T... you would want a 23 tooth pinion....

(Spur/pinion)*1.83=gear ratio.
(90/23)*1.83=7.16

Hey guys, I keep putting off getting a one-way, now all of a sudden I'm hearing that they're very fragile. Any truth to this? Any one have probelms?

If you crash they will break but so will any other part. I dont think the 1-way is any more prone to breakage then any other part on the car. Any part of the 1-way can be replaced so its not like a TC3 where you blow a bearing your out 45 bucks....just buy that side and your back in the game.
