I was racing tonight on our carpet track and am confused why i got .3 slower from the 1st qual to the main. The traction was down as usual but this seems to be when i pull my fastest laps. As the traction comes up my car gets slower. It feels like it doesn't want to rotate around the slow speed corners very well.

So to help loosen the rear up some i put on a medium rear swaybar. It did nothing or made it worse.

Regardless of my setup what would be some good recommendations to loosen up the rear or giving the car more low speed steering; roll center, stiffer springs, different swaybar, less rear toe, etc?

Word is they are 1mm shorter than kit Xray parts, When this was done by Tamiya and Yokomo their cars were immediately much more competitive, fingers crossed similar results with these guys.

I also grabbed one of their top decks, it seems quite a bit more torsionally flexy in the rear end, should be good for lower traction surfaces, and for high traction to prevent traction rolling.
What are the part numbers for new T3r front and rear arms and also the top deck?

And other than what looked to be H roll centres and one hole rear hubs Alex Hagberg's car looked to be a near kit based car. Who says you need all the mods and this would be Xrays best world result for some time.

H RC for the front only. L on the rear.

Also check out the HPI springs, will be good to see when the "Setup" is posted with Xray springs like normal. If they are not going to post real setups they shouldnt post anything at all.

Bright shiny silver springs on the rear, shiny black springs on the front (presumably Pinks)

On the setup sheet they will once again write 2.6 and 2.8
