Is buggy grip still available?? I ask, as i tried to get some of that over here a while back to be told it wasn't available.

Yeah Tweak is really king over, but i guess we need to try and get some DIP over to try.

Fernando is big on keeping the camber links perpendicular to the center of the chassis. Tower spacing varies with lower arm position. I am not sure if this effects handling as other cars have pretty extreme upper link angles and they run fine.... but it can't hurt.

I also space the shock towers to keep the camber links in line with the CVD's. If your camber links are angled forward or backward, it will effect the amount of camber gain you get as they're not traveling on the same plane as the suspension arms are.

EC question.

I realize there are two different cars but how would the "EC Foam" car be on carpet with rubber tires?

Or is it better to just have the EC rubber tire car? Are there plans to update the Schumacher site with the new EC info? The site seems out of date and hard to navigate.

Just wondering....Kevin Kane what's up!!

I would think you would want the foam car. Remember the Rubber tire car is 2mm chassis and topdeck foam car is 2.5. I personally plan on running the foam car outside as well. If I don't think it works I will just get a rubber tire car.

Nexus.....Dont you have some diapers to change or websites to build to show case the latest "Johns" the CPD picked up

I would think, just like Bob that if you are going to race rubber tire on carpet around here med-high bite I would get the foam kit and a thin upper deck and a 1 way and go from there. Im going to get a Rubber tire kit closer to summer for outside and I might play with it on carpet some....so if you get one I will be able to give you some help. Plus Shane is getting one and running rubber tire with it and I think hes getting the foam kit with the other things. Next time you get away from the new family feel free to check out my car at the track.

For racing Carpet with rubber tires we are recommending the regular Mi2EC maybe with a one way.

If the bite is super high you could get the Foam Spec lower chassis and run everything else off the standard EC.

You could also run a Foam Spec top deck on the standard EC.

Both of these setups are more cost effective than converting a Foam Spec kit with EC Towers, EC Risers, EC Top deck, etc., for rubber carpet racing.
