Wash your body, and tires. Blow and brush the dirt out of your chassis. Stockish motor please(read "not fast"). Hard/stock tires work better than soft on the carpet. kyosho stock was best, with stock slash not far off. the "D" compound (stock is "D") blitz tires worked pretty good also. The "S" slash and HPI tires were like drift tires on the carpet.

Got my RX8 back from Tekin. It looks like they put a new case and fan, and changed the lower circuit board. I hope I'm not one of those guys that has to send it in 5 times and never gets a good one. I really hate when these places do warranty work, but don't tell you what they did.
