Tim,

I've tried G6 on a asphalt track, no good. It misses a lot of downforce. After switcing to a accord body everything was OK, 0,5 sec faster every lap. Some other guys tried G6 also and they were not happy with it, they all switched back.

It is a purely FOAM carpet body, the G6. However, I liked the Parma Alfa even better.

Default Hara Set-up on Asphalt

Hey Guys,

Does anyone have a Hara set-up on asphalt? Or any set-up that will be good on asphalt medium grip track.

Thanks!
