I'll look in my setups folder, I know I have a start for a carpet setup for the cuda. I just modified it from a rubber tire setup on carpet...I think we'll be alright on carpet...

Don't think my wood floor setup's would transfer too well to carpet

Atleast I know how to get my car working again So happy that in 4 runs I turned a odd handling car into an on the top pace car It deffinetly responds well to small setup changes

Got some mad run time out of my Matrix's comm and brushes while running indoors. It's a V10R and hadn't had a skim for the last three weeks, skimmed it before Mondays racing and changed the brushes. It only needed the lightest of skims and all it's had is a couple of going overs with the comm stick in the last few weeks. The brushes are from before the summer, must be about 15nights racing in them atleast, they've barely been worn at all, one side is just about to loose it's one cut along it, the other has lost all of it's chequered pattern but not by much. Replaced them anyway, don't think they were giving max power yet tonight, but certainly had good top end speed Next week they should give more torque, I find. What more can you ask from a stock, runs cool, is as fast as any other motor out there, comm wear is minimal and brushes last ages

Now I'm going to click on Submit Reply and read my own post, hoping it sends me back to sleep

Hi Guys,

Here's my setup from Sunday's race. Because of the low traction, I used a spool up front (left over from the Reedy Race) so I can have brakes for emergency (the track was kinda tight too):

Alex Racing Barracuda R2 w/Xenon chassis conversion:

Front:

40wt Oil, 2 hole piston (Yokomo) I'm running Yokomo YS-1SS-6 Super low friction shocks.

1 hole in on the upper shock mount position, and the outter most hole on the arm. Yokomo YS-1355 blue springs

1 degree of camber, 0 toe-in/out, 4.5mm ride height. Also, I have a 0.8mm thick shim (from the A6511 shim kit) underneath the front arm rear mount for reverse kick-up to help the car turn in more aggresively with the spool.

Rear:

40wt Oil, 2 hole piston (again, yokomo components).

1 hole in on the upper shock mount position, and the outter most hole on the arm. Yokomo YS-14575 Pink springs

1 degree of camber, 3 deg. toe-in (with A6113 rear hub carriers), 5mm ride height.

Motor: Reedy TI 10x2 geared at 72/21 powered by Fukuyama Batteries (Dan, thanks for the great cells! )

This was a nice balanced setup for the spool, it had great turn in with the reverse kick-up shim, and very stable under braking in a rather dusty condition that we had on Sunday. This setup would probably work well with a diff up front if you remove the shims on the front (shims might make it too aggressive turning in with a diff)

One-way up front would require a completely different setup all around

Steve - I think I was just about the only person running a 1 way at the race sunday, everyone had switched to a diff or spool. Last time I tried a spool, I was about 1/2 seconds a lap slower than I am with a 1 way, I never use the brakes (although it was a little hard not using brakes with the mod motor) but I did notice that I had more cornerspeed than everyone in my class, I had no problem catching back up to the pack after a bad start...
