Default Hpi formula ten setup help

Ok so last night i got to run practice night with my f10(bumpy carpet) and at first it was unmanageable, the back end would constantly slide out regardless of how i was driving so , the scott from the club got me to loosen up the rear diff and it was much better but still so tail spin happy , i would love to get this thing to have less oversteer but i dont know what to do . i have it at hight setting 2 low in rear , i run 50,000wt oil on the friction disk, jack the gripper compound on the tires . i tried to losen off the t bar screw to give more flex and make the rear more grippy . any ideas

A few general tips but without more details can't really help you,

1. Soften the rear dampening. Check that you have a little bit of sag (ie if you're running 4mm ride height start with .25mm sag and adjust from there to get desired effect).
2. Only sauce 1/3 - 1/2 of the front tires.
3. Check the dual rate on your transmitter. Dial down the dual rate so it's comfortable enough to drive but you have the steering you need.

Which tyres did you use?
The Tyres are included in the kit are crap.
Perhaps for using at the parking lot.
Try the Option Tyres Bridgestone M and S.
They work really fine.
And like swimbikerun said, reduce your dual rate.

Yes i am using the dsx2 and i have the rate turned way down . i have no spacers in the spring at all . I did order the bridgstone s tires for it . i will probably run the hpi front and bridgestone rear , the low speed turning is amazing i can tell when i can get the rears to hook it will be an awsome car .

well i backed the t bar screw right off so the back was sloppy and it finally handled , it is a handfull but a welcome challenge . the delay in the acceleration i have programed into it is verry realistic but i cant wait for the new tires . i am starting to love this kit , and its super robust . havent broke anything yet and that impressive . i have a brushless setup coming for it . we will see if the extra speed in the front straight will help with some down force for the long sweeping corner ,

Can you try some different front springs? I'd try stiffer first. Seems as though you have too much front grip

I would but i am not sure what to get (there is not alot of choices out ther for the ften) i am getting it close tho i am sure i can keep changing a few things .i want to add some rear weight to try up the traction , I really like it and hope my local club pics it up as a class to race . i will get a few more guys on it and that should speed it up and get it accepted . it is defiantly more challenging than my touring car to be consistent .

Forget the Kit tires. With those you will never get the car done.

Whait for the Bridegestones, and you will be satisfied....

Hey guys. I just finished putting the F10 together and was able to get a few test runs. What tires do you recommend for running in a parking lot? It seems like the stock tires are horrible. Back end keeps sliding out. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks again
