Default front

what part would be better for carpet (either about a good medium) either 0r or 4r, it's a front pivot. I'm puting in the setup for trackside, but it doesn't give a front pivot.

Try 2F (the flat one) first. Then use 0F or 4F to tune your steering how you like.

Pro3...each part will effect your front pin angle.....up or down depending on the way its installed and also what roll center mount is used. It can give you kick up or kick down all this is in your XXXS G+ manual read the back few pages for what all these adjustments do to the car. Its too long to explain it all.

Kevin was telling me he hasn't changed his setup at all between the different tracks, seems to work well just about everywhere in SoCali.

BTW, is anyone selling green springs for the car? SoCal's out, and that's what the setup calls for.

Green/Blue is what the setup Steve gave me calls for, so I'd really like to start off with that combo, if I cant find them, I may go purple/blue

Actually the setup has worked well for parking lot as well. I may sub a spool in or run steel diffs. If the bite is not up I may change to green springs. I try to keep it simple.

Parking lot racing is an exercise in itself but I am sure you may find the atmosphere refreshing.

Thanks for the info, I am looking forward to racing at the Toyota race. What tires seem to work? I heard 36R, 32, and takeoff 27s. Just want to know what to pick up.

I'm about 1/2 way through doing the chassis, dont know if I'd ever want to do this again Working at about 45 mins at a time, takes forever...

I might just leave my chassis alone then. The car works pretty good how its and I like knowing that in the unlikely event that I hit a pole (I least I'd like to think its unlikely) my car won't snap in half They sure do look cool though...
