For people experiencing traction rolling issues:

I had good results with Yokomo Pink and Blue springs, CA-ing the front tires' sidewalls, running 0 degrees front camber and -0.5 degrees rear camber. This worked very well on a smooth, medium / high grip CRC carpet track.

Next week I'll be running the same car on a (very) bumpy, high grip CRC carpet track. Hopefully these things will also work in those conditions. I'll let everybody know how that goes.

I did the same and prefer the mid motor conversion so I have converted my second car to that as well now. it just seemed to corner/handle better for me, although I am only running 17.5 Blinky.

Ed,

Have you tried the bleeder caps (emulsion style) shocks with cut shafts and Yokomo springs?

Can someone explain this in detail? Others have asked and only got incomplete answers. A picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goes.

Hi All,

Is just changed from Serpent S411 Eryx for Schumacher MI5 and have a few questions regarding the setup for my New MI5.
Had an idea to run it as Mid motor on carpet with rubber tires (Sorex 28), but do not know if it's a good idea, the other thing is the 2.0 chassis is something you need on the carpet, and if are other things I should try or do .....
