Hey, ive tried searching, but struggling to find the info i need, i just bought a cyclone TC after 5 years away from racing. Im totally lost now when it comes to setups. As of right now everything on the car is standard, as it suggests in the manual.
I ran it last night and found it to have very little front end grip, understeering quite badly on fast corners. Entry seemed okay, mid and exit of corners it was struggling. No oversteer at all. (Sorex 28's, carpet)
But really i need help on the whole setup of the car, the basics if you will. So i have a few questions, if someone very knowledgable on the TC could help please.
What springs are a good starting point?
How do i get more overall front end grip?
More Mid corner grip?
Better exit speed?
Is the anything major i should change from the standard car/setup?
What are the best things to change to affect handling?
My lipo cells, touch the upper deck holder, does this affect handling?
i am pretty much gonna copy a HB carpet setup, but that doesnt help me on a race night and i dont know what to change to make a difference.
Thanks for any help.
