Setup problems

Hi

I am racing indoors on carpet using foam tyres (37 rear, 42 front), TRINITY MONSTER PRO 27T motor and a Tamiya EVO IV MS.

What camber angles and front/rear springs does everybody ring?

I am currently running -2 degrees camber front and rear, but the front tyres are turning into a cone shape (narrow on the outside!!). How can I correct this without adding even more camber

Stiffer front end will help.

coning-way too much body roll.As sosige said stiffen it up.You should be in the 35-40 range in the front about the same rear.Spring tensions.Oil try running 40-50 wt.Start equal fr/rr.soften rear a bit if more traction is needed.You can also limit roll with camber rod lengths.Try slightly longer than you have now if the spring/oil combos don't do it completely.Let us know how it works out.Mario.
