so my question is: how much do you change your setup when going from parking lot racing to on-road racetrack racing? is it pretty much the same. i always use foam; are rubbers better on parking lots? i suppose i may want to soften up the suspension...
i know there are many factors in setup, but i don't really know how big the track is, how sharp the turns are, etc. i just drove by the lot yesterday to get a look at the surface where i figured they MAY be setting up the track. just hunting for some advice.
it all depends if the do a technical track or make it a small track for electric,i ran parking lot for a few years and my set up was almost the same just made a few changes on the car, i changed caster,took swaybars off and ran softer springs,but we had kind of a rough surface also.
