Yeah, ackerman and bumpsteer are quick, easy changes you can make and get the car back out to test.

Sorry guys, I just realized I never introduced myself here...New ARC/Viper Team member here.

I will be here to help as much as possible. Getting my equipment ordered soon but chassis and setup stuff is pretty universal. I mainly run outdoor asphalt in Florida and have been around racing a long time.

Henrik's set up is pretty good if any is struggling on the rug. There is also an IIC Set up which is pretty dialed as well. Both set-ups can be found on the ARC Driver Facebook page or Pettit rc..

not only carpet is different .But you going from 25.5 to 17.5 that is a lot difference in driving styles also...
I'm surprise you didn't ask Kody for his help. Watching Kody 17.5 last night was incredible

i did ask for a little help and he gave me a few suggestions. he seemed a bit preoccupied with other things so i didnt want to bother him too much. im going to try a few things. i think my high roll centers may have been some of the problem.

I ended up with heinricks setup. a couple small changes and i can wheel the car now. hd to move the front upper shock position all the way out but its drivable. a little tweaking on the setup and it will be better for me.
