k, thanks for the help...I'll be running carpet, but I was thinking if I wanted to travel round a bit more for races, I should at least have a clue! So 32R when it is cooler, and 36R when it is hotter?

Lightbulb Carpet Setup

I've got a good setup working on carpet for the MR4TC SP but I run rubber tires. If you are interested in it, let me know

Hi everyone. I'm having truble with the track at our local raceway this week. The track has LOTS of 180 turns and i can seem to turn on the dot and the car would turn very wide. I run a tc3 right now and i'm wondering if anyone can give me any suggestions with what i can do with the setup that can help tune my car to be more agile and turn more "on the dot" thanks!

Default full of something

Kevin K - Hey Kevin, how's it going? Talking smack a lil early this year aren't you? hehe. I'll be there but I don't have any say in how late they stay open. Up to the new owners group I guess. How's the Schuie? I will be at the Sizzler barring a hurricane. I've got satellite tracking on all my gear now btw.

You were right anyways kevin, Speedo doesn't think he'd like my setup....

Yeah, dave...Sounds like you are not on ozite? And our track is very tight, compared to your's, big and twisty. But thanks for the advice on the tires.

Carpet racing rocks for sure. I would like to race a banked oval though. I would imagine they drive alot differently. I have a TC3 as far as my touring car goes and I am having trouble down the straights. The back wants to pass the front end. I am guessing that the front is loosing traction and spinning which allows this to happen? Does this sound like it could be the problem?
