I would definately drop your springs rates and move your front camber link like Brian mentioned.

I would go to 40wt front and rear. You will really notice a difference in corner speed and steering all through the corner. Also, if the track is smooth take out some ride height. Go down to 4.5 in the front and 5 in the rear.

'sup guys... i had a question myself. i went up to KS and ran some rubber tire/carpet yesterday, and i set the oneway car up just like Robs Novak setup. it was rotating too much, stepping out bad. took a little droop out of the rear, but no change. had much better success with the diff car, won it with that one. the only thing on the oneway that was different form Novak was the shocks, i realized later i had the kit small pistons with the 20wt oil in them. would that make the difference?

and, what affect do you think the 2-degree rear hubs would make on carpet?

just preparing vegas.... too bad the closest carpet track to me is a 4 hour drive... anyone wanna donate some old carpet for our local track!?!?!?

Wes, my rubber tire car had Rob's setup on it to a "T" and it was doing the same thing. I have a feeling it was due to a lack of traction since the carpet was real green. If the bite was more like the last big race the setup would be terrific. I am going to try the same setup with the sway bars off next weekend and then remove the oneway if that does not help.

Default parts availability

I am considering purchasing an rdx, probably the carpet spec. I have heard that there was a problem with parts availability.....something like feast or famine.... either there are a bunch avaliable then all of a sudden there are no spare parts to be found anywhere. Is that true? Since i can't support it locally can anyone point me to a good source online for the car? I am moving to San Diego soon, does anyone at SOCAL raceway run these cars. I will need all the pointers I can get!! LOL Thanks in advance.............

Honestly, LHS around me do not carry too many Corally parts. But they have been able to get almost any part within 3-5 days. You should not have a problem getting parts for these cars!

Parts are not a problem. Your LHS needs to place orders through CorallyUSA or you can order directly from the website, www.corallyusa.com . You can also check out Speedtech R/C, Stormer Hobbies and many others. Parts are simply not a problem......

Well....... unless something has changed that we don't know, they are all 17lb springs. I work at CorallyUSA.
