mangoman
I tried ackerman down to 2mm and back up .5mm at a time and ended up at 4mm. My car just did not feel right with anything other then 4mm.

Turbo
I tried all kind of springs, the stock springs worked the best for me.
oil 30
ride height 4.5

I started with Stew Noble's carpet wars setup, it had to much steering for me, you will think the back is lose and it will hook coming out on power.

Any Questions let me know..
We got rained out so I did not get to race with your set up. I did get some practice in on Saturday and it felt very good so I put my 7700kv in and it felt even better. I need to drive alot more with it before I move anything.

Glad it worked good for you in practice. Its a really smooth setup, with the spec tires for the REEDY it has and intial push getting in but it worked good with them.What motor did you run and what is the 7700kv equil. to??

Its more like a 3.5 if run correct.Maybe Joe's doesn't run that fast.Those motors are great for drag cars.A little unpredictable for touring cars.
