What compound is the 573 if I may ask? Softer then the 571?

I have some different front/rear combinations I'll be trying next time.

No, 573 is a medium and 571 is Soft. I'm not sure why I never tried the 571 front with 572 rear, but that is one of the combinations I'll be trying next.

Preferred transverse (asphalt and carpet), car just seems to be slightly more agile and fewer issues with the rear trying to swing around when on power out of tighter corners.

Would appear it's a personal thing, and possibly something effected by grip levels.

I wouldn't put weight under the steering rack either, you will gain more initial steering, but then the inertia will want to make all that extra weight push as you go through the corner.

+1

Tried across the chassis, and the car felt "sluggish" at the rear, with direction changes also feeling slow. Mounted the battery in line and the car felt more agile, and a lot easier to drive.

This is hilarious. Both sides say the same thing! I went with Jan's preference and have been happy. He has run on low grip to high grip, carpet to asphalt. It must be something for you boys down under and your preference for inline and why your toilets flush the opposite from us in the higher latitudes.

571 works well on low traction asphalt on my x1

Default Lipo postion

I have been running the lipo across the chassis, have tried it inline but felt the car lost the rear end more easily. Running the lipo across the chassis I can push in and out of the corner, I have loads of steering and corner speed is very high.

This makes the most sense to me so far. Inline~ more stable less overall traction. Transverse- more weight transfer, more overall traction. Chose one that makes sense for the conditions you run in.

Thanks! I looked up the compounds and would explain why Rampokker said his car pushed a little bit with 573. I have run 571/572 and 571/575 on carpet and asphalt with good success. I have run 574/575 on carpet and it works very well when the grip is lower. I want to try 574/572 next outdoor race day. Knowing that 573 is harder then 571, I think I will skip that compound. My head hurts now trying to keep these all straight.

Maybe it depends on where we put the lead to get the car up to weight min, I had to add 60g of lead, I put 20g on right under recv counter balance esc weight and balance the car left to right then I put 20g each side of the battery where the battery would go if it was sideways, not front to back as I have it

or maybe some are running the car WAY under weight

I have the Lipo across the chassis and the corner speed is nuts!

How would you rate the 571/572 combo against 571/575? I found the 571/575 to be pretty safe. Just a tiny bit too much understeer. Let me know what you think of the 574/572. Slight oversteer for me, but it fits my driving style pretty good. Its the combo I'm currently running.

571/572 combo is well balanced. With the Tuning Haus super soft front insert in the 571 it is less aggressive than a 574 but with plenty of steering. I run 1/12 so these cars never feel like I have quite enough steering but that's comparing Apples to Oranges.
