I went to PYC again. But I just couldn't do the same times I did on Saturday. The track was very hot, and I had to leave just as it was getting good.

I did try 2.5* rear toe, but I don't know that it helped. It did increase steering and reduce tire squeal, but the car felt pretty floaty, and sometimes I could loop it if I clipped a curb or got on the power too fast.

I tried an LTC-R for one run, in between runs with the speed 6 on the same setup, and the LTC-R was definitely better, but that's no surprise.

I think part my issue might have been ESC setup and gearing. I don't think I got the new esc set up exactly the same as the one I fried, and I also tried an 8.2 fdr as opposed to 8.4. Specifically I think the power curve and braking just weren't quite right, so I had to baby it a bit.

Still loving the car, though.

And back in Europe, Mr Hagberg has TQd the ETS for the first time, well done Alex!

He seems to have made a step forwards ever since he got the T4'14 at the Euros last year. Just finished building mine, really looking forwards to seeing how it goes outdoors compared to the old T4.

Hagberg dominated during practice and TQ'ed all qualifiers. His car is really dialed. I'm running the same setup as him at the moment and the car is good and has lots of steering.
The track is amazing.

Tomorrow are finals. Looking forward to it.

Have you tried anything in setups that did not work?

Make sure you put the setups up (I'm sure you want to wait until after)

I noticed that too. I'm guessing its prototype, it doesn't look like the other car parts.

I've started with Hagbergs setup from the last ETS, but it's didn't had enough steering for the track.
Hagberg tried 2 cars in free practice, one with last ETS setup and one with his setup from the last Xray challenge where he made a few adjustments during testing last week.

I asked him which one was the best and I changed to his setup after the free practice. I has lots of steering, but it's not very easy to drive. Everyone drives the car with a lot of body roll to make it work, but the car gets upset very easy on quick direction changes like in the chicane or when you have to correct a small mistake.

I'll send it after the weekend

I did not see any difference, only a open ball-link.
Or do I missing something
