Default how to set 1/10th GP tourer for rubber tires?

hiya folks,

I am wondering how this could be done?

I keep seeing how the japanese use rubber tires for GP touring, but i can't seem to find a setup that involves my car having any grip at all.

I drive a mtx4.

Can anyone help? suggest setups?

Thanks and happy new year!

During heats, i use durex for both front and rear, with Hard inserts.

Sorex, i meant Sorex.

I race on a track in australia which is beside an off road track and is very slippery,most of the time we use rubber,36&sometimes40 sorex because of the heat&medium inserts,our track is pretty tight ,I use a spool on the front,purple springs rear,light blue front& around 50wt shock oil,with rubbers you also dont need as much camber,I go -1.5 front &-2.5 rear,so I hope that might give you something to work with all the best ,.......Jayson
