1420grams, I take it's thats with 3300's
with 3000's that would be easy even with my lardy servo
Still need too mush room for lead weights to get my R2 upto weight with 3300's

Try to give your rear end a little less droop, transfer less weight to the front.

Actually, you may want to try MORE rear droop therby allowing MORE weight to transfer forward....contrary to what Randman said. Also, you can try 0.5 degress more camber in the front than the rear. These are only basic ideas but the important thing is to change your setup so that you can achieve your desired feel without loosing the overall balanced feel of the car.

Carpet Dragons on polished floor Best of luck on that one.....have tried T27 with limited success and Rally Blocks from Schumacher werent too bad at all suprisingly. I beleive Herm and I ran similar setups on polished wooden floors and can be found a few pages back. Would be interested to know how they go although they probably wont be a patch on minipins.
