So what are you using for the rear? I use to have a unity tweak station but sold everything off and getting back into it.

I don't bother with a rear tweak station.

I set the car up like this:

1. set car on a level surface, front facing you
2. put coin on top of each front tire
3. with a pointed driver, lift up the front of the car from the bottom in the Center
4. which ever coin falls first, tighten the opposite tweak screw
5. adjust until front end lifts and both tires rotate at the same time

Another method, if you have no coins because you've paid your entree fee...

Lift the front with a ball wrench in the center tweak hole. Spin both tires then slowly lower the front end. Watch which one stops first - then adjust accordingly.

There is a lot of variation... driving style, track grip, track config, etc.

Are you having an issue? Post up some more detailed information.

Haven't hit the track yet. Looking for a base setup for CRC rubber on using CRC carpet

Which carpet-grey or new black. Black 45 spring instead of 50 that comes in the kit (front and sides). then go run.

Got to run my WGT-r a bit at The Gate yesterday.

Two words.... Really FUN!

The car was pretty good for a first shake down run. Once I get a good 17.5 (hoping the TSR motors get back in stock SOOON!) I'll start picking on the setup some more. The HPI 7447 seemed to work well too.

Yup. Gave up on using coins ages ago.

Something to add:

4a. and loosen (counter-clockwise) the other tweak screw an equal amount to not affect preload

I have tested the following. Protoform PFM-10, Ford GT, McAllister C6 and MX-Stang. All on black carpet.
My picking order :
1. MX Stang for quick turning but edgy. Tire sidewalls are out of the body and you have to keep it off the walls. Best to run glued sidewalls with this one.
2. PFM-10, nearly as good as the MX and the tires are protected.
3. C6 but be careful with this one as it has a lot of front grip and you will need to adjust chassis front grip levels. I see people traction roll a lot with this one
4. GT, all around good grip levels but maybe too good. It would be good for someone new as it reacts a little slower. It would be my preference on pavement or a low grip track.
None of them are perfect and I would offer suggestions to each of the Mfg's to make them better if they asked.

My favorite so far has been the Protoform Mulsanne cut 10mm taller than stock so it doesn't look like a doorstop. It freed the car up with less overall down force than the Sophia I was running when I switched from foam.
