Another Willspeed production car ready to hit the track, this one is owned by Paul Upton who runs the Silverstone off road club in the Uk and he is a pretty handy painter too!

So my next race is the British Off Road GP next weekend so getting some prep done this weekend

We have a group chat going and some good set ups/ideas and the cars are getting dialled in now on carpet, Iíll post the set up shortly

Lots of Schumacher tyres to glue up and added some yellow rear springs and hard 6.1 rear arms and a grey rear roll bar

I often get asked how much the car weighs, this is wills new AE car with a full size lipo in it (no brass bulkhead)

But standard B6.1 running gear and no titanium/slipper lock out etc so Iím sure with some work you can get it even lighter if you wish

Looks pretty sensible to me.

I run 30+5 on my car sometimes on a tight twisty layout to get the weight transferring and help the car pivot off power.

This setup could be ok for a VERY tight layout but as this was pointed out as an EOS setup I did found it strange.

Did you had the chance to drive a Willspeed yet?

If it is one of Paul's setups it will be Silverstone (CRC), Junction 16 (worn EOS) & a couple of similar clubs which all run very tight technical tracks so it makes sense. The only place I run 30+5 is at Midlands Raceway which is a very small tight track, at more open tracks I'm typically 25+5 or een 25+2.5 to limit weight transfer.

Sometimes carpet setups look a little odd because the front tyres are often overpowered by the grip of the rears thus getting the nose in and the car starting to rotate is a lot more difficult than on other medium-high grip surfaces like astroturf.

Guys,
Any comments about driving characteristics?
Also, don't you miss the ability to moving the battery for altering the center of gravity?

Some pics from my weekend at the British GP, was a great showing for the small Willspeed team with 17 of us competing, Kyle Moon made it to the A final once again with his X-ray Willspeed and Will himself got in the B final which was awesome, the Willspeed X-ray truck got second overall

thanks Roger for stepping in with the set up advice and yes 35 works well on the high grip carpet tracks

Some pics from the event
