I didn't feel the changes i made to the car with CSO chassic, changed the handling of the car that much, maybe the CF look a like is just to soft for carpet.

Sadly my pace is way off indoors, maybe more pratice will help with this.

Still look for a good carpet starting point for a okayish driver.
we drive 28 sorex this season.

Thanks all
I have been working on a setup for 28 sorex with JB inserts on carpet in 17.5 blinky. I can post it tonight if interested. It works reasonable although there is room for improvement.

I use the tamiya tool kit. That 1.5mm fits for some reason. A bit tight in the beginning, but fits all the way in after several usage. I don't use the tool for anything else, but if you try to turn the screw without it seating all the way, you will strip it. None of my other 1.5mm fits comfortably

I use a torx driver and it fits perfect to those little gear diff screws.

Alright see if this works

http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/4939...-pdf-667k?da=y

Please let me know how this works for you. Like I said, its a work in progress and I appreciate any input on how to make it better.

Things I have tried.
Stabilizers
Shock positions
Traction compound, SXT 3.0 all tires fully.
Softer shock oil, because there were bumps in the sweeper causing the car to become lose on more firm shockoil. I would prefer thicker on other track to start.

Things still to try:
Move the front A arm further forward ( i feel you it could use a tad more steering).
Try some different camber links
Try some more camber since the left front clearly wore the side wall
Try a softer oil, like 300k in front diff.

Other things to know:
- I used the reedy chassis and upper deck.
- I also used the steering brace.

TA06 sway bars give us finer increments, so 1.1, 1.3, 1.5mm options I have used 1.3 front and 1.1 rear on some tracks but generally the kit sway bars work best

Hi,
Do you know the part number for the TA06 sway bar/s. I don't know if they come as a set, a separate set for front and rear, or individual - I've been looking for ages and not convinced I've found them!

I guess I'm really looking for 1.1 and 1.3 rear and 1.3 front?

Thanks
Oli

Big thank you to everyone who offered me advice on getting my car to bite. Had another go today and things were much better. I started with my old set up but just stood the shocks up to hole 3 F+R. Car was really like driving on ice. I lowered camber links by 1mm, felt some more side bite but car was rotating like mad. Went up to #1000 in the rear diff and the car started rotating nicely but was still a bit slidey. Put the thinner top deck on and the car became much more to my liking, really digging in and not sliding in the corners at all unless I carried too much speed on entry. Car was a little slow on exit so went to 2.5 rear toe and it was all good. Last final had a bit of fun and put a front one way in. Quite good with the one way so long as everything was going to plan, as soon as I made a mistake and had to correct something the one way was not so fun!

Important thing is I'm leaving the rostrum with a smile again =D Big race this Sunday so let's hope I can keep the car handling sweetly.

If you look from the top of the wishbone so you can see where the holes are on both sides then hole 1 is the furthest out (closest to the wheel) and 4 is the most inward (closest to centre). The holes alternate from side to side, so the side with the furthest out hole has hole 1 and 3 and the other side is 2 and 4. If you look on a set up sheet then the diagram is arranged so that hole 1 looks further out than hole 2. HiH.
