Default Recommend a carpet setup?

Looking for a recommendation on a carpet setup for a tight somewhat technical layout. This is our layout.

+1, the kit setup is a great place to start, maybe go with the 1.2mm swaybar on the rear, but the kit setup is money

Guys, it seems we have a new issue.
In last few weeks we had the opportunity to built up 2 or more kits for 13.5T no timing. We followed basic setup running in a hight grip carpet track. We run others 2 cars one in 13.5T no timing and one in mod, they follow setups similar to basic and they are fast and easy to drive.
The common issue in that cars is that they feel excessively agressive when they hit the track for first batteries. They are very difficult to drive and setups are likely the same of the other cars but they're very nasty.
Maybe rear diff needs to be break-in... Did you have the same feelings?
Thank you

It's true, not that the car is hard to drive it's just very direct feeling. To settle my S411's down on carpet, I installed the 2.0 F/R suspension mount eliminating the front arm sweep. I know that others have done the same but, for me it was a big improvement.

So are you still testing or did you run it at one of the club races? If so which class, stock or ss?

Default servo saver

hello,
just wondering what people are doing for a servo saver and how can you make it fit without hitting the bottom of the saver on the chassis?

You can get servo savers that are quiet low and will protrude past the servo , I haven't used a servo saver on onroad for a long time and have not had a issue with servos stripping

I m using Xray servo saver, but you have to file some material on the servo plate to clear the servo saver. So far its been working very well.
