One ways can be tough. It's taken me about four months to get a decent handle on it. The turn in and overall cornerspeed is amazing. Just remeber you can't try and out brake someone into a corner. one of you will be going off the track

If it took you 4 months, I should likely plan for more...he, he...

But "turn in and overall corner speed" both sound like a very worthwhile goals for me. Thanks.

Don't get me wrong, it was drivable from the start, but I'm just getting to be as fast as I was before I went to oneways. The way I used to make a lot of passes when I was running spools was to out run guys into the corner, brake so hard the car would damn near stand on it's nose and pitch it into the corners. Not exactly a finess style and hard on parts. So I decided I wanted to learn more finess and use skill rather than brute force to make passes. It's the exact opposite style I was used to.

Peter.. I believe the closest thing would be Orange fronts (35lbs) and white rears (30lbs).

Losi also makes a 40lb yellow spring, some guys at the Novak were running Losi yellow/Losi orange for the 40/35 stagger. Pretty stiff!

Not sure how close that is to the congos.

I liked the MIP double sided tape, but I recently found some 3M tape @ radio shack that looks just like it and acts the same as well. Its white, comes in flat pieces, sticks super good, but comes off all in one piece... greatest thing ever...

pro3racer... Thanks! I would say you would not want to try anything too soft for your setup. If it's the same carpet that was used at Cleveland then it won't take long for the bite to come up, even at a club racing level. I would try my setup but without the rear sway bar and maybe white front springs and black rears. Thats a little softer and should get you hooked up until the track gets some bite.

From what i've heard, the congo yellows are right around 45lbs, the purples around 35, and blue around 25. The only reason we run the congos instead of orange/white is because it gives the car a better feel overall.
