OK I'm sure its been posted on here before but can anyone explain how changing the bell crank insterts and moving it forward and back change the steering input and feeling of the car. Also by moving the tie rods tot he forward hole on the steering blocks does that make the steering feel more lazy or qwicker? Thanks for any help.

Hello everyone

Anyone could point me towards a setup sheet for very, very low grip carpet ? It's for a technical , small track. I tried the stock setup, the car felt really good with a speed 6, but was slow. Thanks ! (P. S. the mandatory tires are MM32)

I've browsed the photon wiki setup but none seems relevant for super low grip carpet...

If its really low grip you might want it to roll a little more? Maybe softer oil also (40wt is standard, try 30wt)

I found the kit setup didnt turn really well... Maybe your car is easy to drive but if it is understeering maybe you could fix that also... Use a little less rear toe (For stock classes) for starters...
