Default Setup for foams on carpet

Does anyone have a good starting setup for an original 415 on carpet with foams.

Car has dual diffs and the original suspension. Will be running brushless LiPo.

Thanks,

Crash, when I ran mine those couple times with foams, it was really good. This was my starting point.

Front/Rear
60/40 wt oil 2 hole/ 3 hole
Assoc. springs copper/red or purple/copper depending on traction
-2.0/-1.5 camber
Yellow front stab..no rear Red if you need more steering
Droop 1mm/1.5-2mm over ride height
#2 inner camber f/r
Cyan/Magenta and a Proto G6

Thats all I wrote down...should get you close

Yeah, I noticed that the milky blue springs came on the #53440 spring set cardboard holder and say red, yellow, blue and white...but no spring rate/tensions (lbs). I look for those rates now.

Hi,

I just got a 415. thinking about running it on carpet/foams. just got a diff for it from a friend. now all I gotta do is get the right rear blocks. I can't wait to get it on the track. the TA-05 is a blast to drive. I'm hoping the 415 will be just as fast.
How's things going???? PM me when you get a chance.

Thanks
