Default Corally RDX setup for low-med traction carpet.

I am looking for a Corally RDX rubber tire setup for low-med traction carpet...

Omaha Ne Hobbyplex track that held nationals in 2008.
Ozite carpet, traction picks up after 3 heats and is more medium traction by the main.
Tires are Jaco Green or Blue rubber premounts.

All the setups listed on Corally's site are more high traction grooved tracks.
Need an alternative setup.

I would think that one of the setups there would be very good as they all did pretty well at Nats that year. There isn't going to be one magic setup that you can out on your car and just become strapped. They should all be good starting points give them a try and adjust to your style driving and traction.

I like a soft setup in those conditions. 19 front springs and 17 or 14 rear. Rear shocks way out on the arms. 3 degrees rear toe. Inside links 2nd hole top row front and rear. 40wt ft and 30wt r. shock oil with stock 2 hole pistons. top of shocks 2nd hole f. and r.

Hey guys I need a little how on reading this setup sheet.

http://www.corallyusa.com/2005/setups/RDXKoreyRAIN.pdf

First-Kickup on this sheet it measure at -1.6 deg. Is this related to the diagram showing where your control arms mount? (whitch slot to use)
How do you know whitch way to mount the coupler with the dot up or down?


Second- The wishbone measurment of 75%. What/where is the wishbone setting.......

Third- On the right hand side in the illustration they show a long piece
and a short piece. Are these different lenghts of control arms??

Rear Suspension:

Anti-squat-shows 0, the diagram of the bulkhead shows that the control arms sets paralell to the chassis giving you the Zero degrees correct?
With the dots up on the couplers??
Also it does not tell you how many shims to use under the couplers but give a measurement of 2 degree toe in. So if you dont use any shims how do you get the 2 degree's of rear toe?

I'll be racing carpet on-road, the traction is said to be medium. What do you guys think about the shock oil wt's on this sheet compared to the previous post?

I've never raced on carpet, only asphalt so any help and advice will be greatly
appreciated

Thanks

The diagram in your book shows how to get 1.6 degrees of antidive. You should have the short arms. The long arms mount through the bulkhead. 75% is the strength of the arm and is molded into the plastic on top of the arm. Use as many shims on the rear block as you need to get two degrees of rear toe. Again check the manual for dot placement when using the specified hole number.

There's lots of useful info in the manual

I have been using the thick coupler shims as 1 degree and the thin one as .5 degree. 3 degrees would be the max that you could stack on the coupler. That means removing the front shim is needed in most setups.
