If this is a new HB Carpet car desing, i think is a very good way, very fast and i can see, very strong.

Thanks again, Luis C.
do you know if there was any pics of his car during the race?

Hmm... I don't have a ton of experience on low bite asphalt to have a personal setup for you, But when I ran outside on a parking lot track, Andy Moore's 2006 Worlds Winning setup was a killer starting point. Hope that helps!!!

Try this setup,but I changed oil to 40 front and 35 rear.I also took a spare rear frp plate and cut it in the middle.I ran on a really dirty parking lot track today.I have only run on a track this bad once before and the oil and plate mod helped a ton.Car was unbelievably good for such crap conditions.I was also running rp30's instead of Sorex.

Thanks

I'm race with my cyclone s in sportsman sedan that i bought from a guy who couldnt get it to hook up and bought a tc5.I'm no pro but in the class i race in it's been great and i always make the podium and beat the guy i bought it from since i've had it and thats been about 4 race nights now.One thing i noticed was that the guy i bought it from didnt have it set-up all that good,the car was tweaked with no droop front and back.Before i placed it on the track i put a set of hpi comp shocks and different springs and oil from stock and hpi pro comp x-pattern tires and it hooked up right away and placed 1st on its first two qualifying heats and 1st in the a-main with cars fielded with tc5's and higher end cyclones with one-ways and spools installed,my lap times were not far from the expert class do to my inconsistance.I should add that i run a brushless system also with my drag set-up to 20%,thats just slightly softer than a brushed motor that the cyclone s comes with and is just right for corner entries for my style of driving.

I notice on some of the setups on the HB online site some racers would use 1.5 pivot block on the front and other would use 2.00 or 2.5 pivot block in front what does it do to the handling to the car?

Dude - is that Duo motor really that much faster than the rest? Your motor was on a different level than everyone elses.
