Carpet w/rubber tires I use almost the same exact setup except for :

Front springs:gold
Rear springs: Blue
I use sway bars on the front and rear
And I also put 60wt. shock oil all around
And I also losen my front diff but it's a little bit tighter than my back
I use Take Off 27's b/c thats what we run in the series but I found that sorex 24's (front) and sorex 20's(rear) sauced the same way.

(This is the stock ( it also is very good w/19 turn) setup I used to Win the '02 Turkey shootout on the prototype that is mentioned on the first page of this thread)

We would but I live in Tampa and it is a tad to far to go on a regular basis. But I am planning on coming up for the state race.

I worked on a setup this past weekend that would be as close to the factory box stock setup as possible. Victor is selling the Demon complete so we wanted to be fast right out of the box. The only thing I really added was a one-way, 60wt oil in the front, and titanium stub axles. The camber links are as long as possible and I used 4 deg. steering blocks. Other than that it was the Factory Team setup... VERY FAST! This car handled so well I am not going to change it. I got TQ in stock class(we turned more laps than the mod guys.) but chose a tire that was waaaaaay soft for the main and droped a bit. All in all a very positive outing and an extremely fast car.

ALL HAIL VICTOR !

stephen what is the advantage(s) of using the rear shock tower up front? is it a perfect fit or do u have to modify anything? and what do u mean by "saucing"? and what class is this for? (mod, stock...)

The advantage to putting the rear shock tower up front is that it makes the front symetrical, which makes it easier to tune and also move the front shocks out farther if you need to. It is a perfect fit you do not need to do anything. I race these setups w/stock and 19 turn mod., I have not tried them w/a full mod motor. Saucing my tires is just what I call putting traction compound on my tires. It really doesn't matter what brand you use I prefer the odorless ones just cause they don't smell bad(no other advantages).

Yes, everyone tries to use the same universal ratings but I recommend that you use the same brand front and back for best proformance, cause the companies use different brand foams and they might not be the exact same foam.
