Like Nexus stated, the setups shown are gonna change. The grip this carpet produces after the groove comes in is insane.

Our local track (IRP) just installed this same carpet (from the same roll as what is in Vegas) and after two weekends of raceing, setups were changed significantly to deal with the grip that was produced.

Looking at the T center brace its surrounded in a red circle, i bet thet is gonna be a option part and not part of the kit.

Exactly. Marc never run on foams before even no practice. His first practice run in Vegas is his first foam run ever. But I think someone from Tamiya will do the setup on his car.

Marc has run on carpet before. He finished 2nd or 3rd at the Tamiya Worlds mini class a few years ago althought true it was rubber tires

I got my spool few days ago and mine is the same as your.



What will be the difference in handling or general if i will put in the rear:
1) X/D and 1 degree uprights
2) XB/D and 0 degree uprights ?

What are the spacers on the axles for? I'm talking about those under the wheel. I have on each wheel 1mm and 0,5MM?

Any idea why?
Don't they claim that the new suspension creates more grip?
If so, why would they use it with foam tires??
opposite...with foams on carpet you have some much traction you actually are trying to "free up" the car to turn the fastest laps.
