Here is a set-up for foams. I know I must be the only one on here who races it on foams and carpet. But here we are.. Basically its the quickest car at the club.

Other info, non cut motor mount (we all run the solid mounts).

These are direct replacement parts so if you're running spool up front no blades gear up front yes blades and gear diff in the rear yes you need blades these diff cups are allot harder and will last allot longer the the original aluminum ones .

Marek when we start our carpet season and the carpet is loose and the traction is minimum or when we change the layout i always start by making the camber links longer by putting the ball stud on the most inner position that makes the car feel really planted and stable and also try a softer tire not really sure what tires you run but traditionally i run 32s and maybe ill use 28s for a couple of heats till the traction comes up just try one at a time and good luck.

try to use softer shock oil and raise the camberlinks on the inside. maybe to 5mm/4mm in front and rear. it should increase smooth running.

There are no carpet tracks in Australia really, but based on asphalt running I think it would be better than the kit chassis on the rug. It makes the car a lot smoother to drive
