There actually very low, around 58mm.
JD,

I personally would try more camber....maybe 1/2 a degree at a time.

I hope this helps, Mike

humm.. i can try that also, but i think taking the oneway out and putting the diff is my main problem. I am running 1* camber right now, but i can try 1.5

thanks

Jon

Adding front camber is going to give more steering and make it roll worse. If your running foams try going to Cyan/Magenta. Less sidebite.

Can anyone tell me somewhere that :

a) Has a T1 Factory kit in stock (part number 300004)
b) Sells for around the $330 mark, or thereabouts
c) Will ship worldwide

Plenty of my normal hangouts sell the kits, but they're all out of stock, and I need to purchase while I have the money

thanks.

At Action I've been getting spoiled with glass smooth CRC Daytona Ozite but I'm hoping to make the Takeoff race thiis January at TORC
The carpet should be nice and smooth .... there are really no bumps that I notice now - and I know that they ordered the better Ozite.

I just got back from racing in Kingston - that was an interesting experience ...

Looking forward to racing back at "home" this Friday.

The Magma race is going to be awesome this year - I am looking forward to it - now I just have to get my T1 FT ...

I have a spool in my EVO2 and I love it on carpet (Rubber tires) - but I have already had to replace it since the outdrives got torn apart because I kept hitting stuff ... I am now going to install a diff and see how I like it.

I'm really looking forward to the Magma race...all the local guys say it's a great time...they wanted to get me up there last year...but at that point My T1 (original) only had 2 runs on it..I wasn't quite ready...

sounds like I'll have to work on my 12th scale too though for this years race.

I only hope I can find a front Sway bar some time soon for my car...I'm having a hard time takig away steering

Dave,

That is also what I thought until Jilles Grosskamp (Team Xray) told me that adding camber would be the first thing to change when having problems with traction rolling.

I took his word for it...LOL

They are the same foam, but I seem to have longer tire life with the Parma's...probabley from what David said about different rims.

Now I can see adding rear camber cause that is gonna make the rear grab more instead of the front.
