Ralf - I used to run carpet, and this was what I was using - without one-way.

Body: Protoform Stratus
Motor p2k on about 29/81 or peak 12x1 on about 21/81
GMV12 speedo
KO 713 FET servo
Integy Sanyo 3000's

Front:
Blue Jaco foams (24mm)
Blue tamiya springs (stiff)
40wt oil
6deg caster blocks
Camber links in upper outboard hole, and upper inner inboard hole
Camber set for even tyre wear, erring on the negative side.
Toe in - about 1 deg.
All other settings as kit

Rear
Blue TRC foams (supposedly a little softer)
Blue tamiya springs
60wt oil
Camber links in upper outboard hole and upper inner inboard hole
Camber set for even tyre wear, erring on the negative side
Toe in 1deg (stock motor), 2deg (mod motor)
All other settings as kit

Other info:
Fibre-lyte top-deck fitted
shock bladders fitted
various other little tweaks that don't really do anything

Things worth trying as well are maybe slightly stiffer front oil (I ran 60wt last time I went down there - made the steering response a bit smoother), as well as less caster - try the new 3 or 4deg blocks from Japan, which are also out now in europe.

HASBEEN420: when you spank, you are obviously coming from behind

Ralf - sorry, foams only.

Pro3racing - haven't run the new caster blocks - i'm just assuming that cos the 6deg are an improvement on the 8deg, the 3 and 4 degs would probably be better again.

Might put an order in for the 3 or 4 degs today as it happens.

Yes you can. This was one of HPI's early tuning tips. See the HPI pro3 tuning guide for others.

All the shops in HK are all out of stock on the 3deg C-blocks. I know 'coz I bought the last few. You might be able to find the 4deg. The new blocks sell out very quickly. You can try to pre-order them.
