For me this is easily the best my car has felt on carpet, so much traction and steering, theres so many thing's it could be, tyres, addative, wing position and size, how your shell's mounted or anything...
Are you using the new WC shock towers?

Lately I've been using this setup but instead of using the normal Mazda6 I've been using the new Mazdaspeed6, initial turn in feels a bit less but it's pretty easy to place and carrys a lot of speed during transition.

Heyup Stew, where did you get your mazdaspeed from? What is it like compared to the moorespeed mazda?

I'm currently running the HB dodge, would you say the mazdaspeed/moorespeed would be more suited to a medium sized, medium-high traction carpet track?

Hey 2bad, i know the deal. I just wanted to get a TI unit for extra piece of mind I havent broken the AE one yet. I made the hole in the Aluminum outdrive alittle bigger so it wouldnt snap the screw. It's all about the wiggle

I will go for a full shock and car rebuild and go from there. Out of interest do you usually run a moorespeed mazda 6?

Yes i have the new Worlds spec shock towers, my car is a Moorespeed edition. With regards shock pistons, which pistons did you say it was you were running 2 or 3 hole?

Ive been using the Stew noble carpet set up and it was a huge improvement to my car, the only thing i changed to gain more rear end grip was to slightly increase negative camber.

Stew have you got anymore set ups you want to share, i could do with some with a spool for the outdoor season in the uk.

Thanks!

Version 3 spool is great. After several club races, no signs of wear on the drive cups.

The part numbers are 61086 (spool) and 61087 (drive cups).

My Mazdaspeed came from Microtech, got it like 3 weeks back now though, non in stock there at the moment.
Compared to the HB Mazda its much easyer to drive and feels like its is slightly easyer on tyres.

HB Dodge is easy to wheel round lap after lap, mainly because its very pushy, it'll not usually turn the fastest times on carpet though, a pf Mazda6 or Mazdaspeed 6 will definatly imporve performance.

I'll have a look, most of my 2006 asphalt setups were lost a few months back when my old computer died, but they were all pretty much along the same lines...

It's the new Mazda body from Protoform its based on the Mazdaspeed Mazda 6 (or MPS as we'd know it in europe) so looks slightly different to the older Mazda 6 bodys.

Does anyone have the setup used by Andy Moore at the DHI2007???
Also the one used by Ronald Volker (actually I think they used different setup).

I can't find a good setup for carpet.

Thanks in advance

Hi guys,

Just want to post a quick note we now added a new section for the Andy Moore Cyclone World Edition Parts. I think all the new parts are now available separately
