My thoughts exactly, If you can get the T1 new for a Cheap price then just buy that... I have a T1 with the Evo 2 chassis and the extra battery slots only allow you the ability to run the saddle packs down one side which I have never seen anyone do. The car is much better balanced with the weight evenly distributed on both sides.. And as Impactplayr said, just upgrade to the Evo 2 arms etc when you have to replace them anyway.. If you break a lower suspension arm in a crash then just buy 2 of the Evo 2 arms. When its time to get a new chassis get the Evo 2 chassis. As far as the adjustable bulkheads go don't bother changing to those, leave the T1's on and get the belt tensioner.. Get the super adjustable rear shock tower and soon enough your car will look just like the Evo 2... Mine does

I tried running six cells down the left side. The problem I had is that the car was extremely unbalanced, it turns better one way and not the other, almost like it was tweaked. I have even tried split packs with left side in the forward slots which gave the car balance, but there was too much weight up forward. The car tended to be inconsistent. Sometimes the rear end would break loose on a corner, and other times it would not. Saddle packs side by side is the way to go no matter if you use the GP cells or the Pana UMH cells.

Do you think this setup will work for this kind of carpet track

main straight - sweeper - chicane - med. straight - u-turn - small straight - u-turn- small straight - speeper - main straight again

Stock everything with medium front anti roll, and soft rear anti roll bar(1.0mm). Don't know what springs. I am using the whites but they are way to soft with foams and carpet.

Any suggestions on springs, anti roll stiffness, as well as what shore to run. Oh year I have 30wt oil all around with 2 holes front 3 in rear.

ther car without the roll bar turns in excellent with a little oversteer (i love oversteer, easier to contron for me than understeer). The problem is all the speed i love on the speeper and from the car leaning or rolling (due to springs i believe). I had fixed one way and was on the verge of beating the best person on the track who had a one way. (it was also my first time racing on a track).

Basically i want to go and whoop some people so please help me in not loosing so much speed in the corners

Oh yeah what are some good shores (i'm gonna use mugen fast tires cause i love em, but any other suggestions are appreciated

Trinityracinnut...When you say 2mm droop, do you mean that your suspension can lift 2mm before hitting the droop screws, or do you mean that you have a reading of 2 on a hudy droop gauge? (which actually just measures how much higher than your chassis the hubs are)
How much traction compound do you run with this set-up?

I don't know about you all but I might have to buy the composite kit and run it.

Looks like a transponder holder near the spur.

Warlord,

The track pic you posted looks very fast and rather easy. I am wondering why you want to run 30mm tires? I think the best bet on carpet is Jaco purple/orange front and Jaco purple rear. This has worked well for at many different tracks all over including the US Indoor Champs.

As for your set up you need to make sure your car is rotating very well in the 180 switch backs. Go with 1 degree rear toe for starters.

i run mugen fast tires 26mm all the way around but i don't know what shore (they came with my mtx-2). They stick better than the jaco's the guys at the track use. They were asking me what tires i use. The car rolls allot which i will fix with anti roll bars front and rear and stiffer springs and oil. I want to run 30 rears cause the car oversteers which i like and with 30mm rears, anti roll bars, stiff springs, and thicker shock oil I hope to still have the oversteer but make it more predictable and controlable.
