Yeah, definately make sure they get a pic of your car, because a picture really isnt a picture without a R2 in it

There arent too many people that run on carpet with the car yet, but if you havent bought the car yet, I'd get the regular R2, and go with the PAL conversion, it will be much stiffer than stock by the looks of it.

First, try the hard A-arms and knuckle/carrier set to see if that's stiff enough while you are waiting for the PAL chassis conversion to come out.

If the track layout is rather tight, you might want to try the hardened mid span arms as well. Be sure to get some stiffer springs than what come in the kit.

I raced mince once on carpet on the last race of the season and it was the stock R2, stock springs, etc, #2 pistons, 80wt in front, 70 in the rear w/ foams purples and plaids, stratus d type from yokomo, can't remember any of the shock settings on the towers but it needed , to me, some more steering. That isn't what I'll do when we go back on carpet but the thing was very decent, ask KO, he was there...Hope this helps.

For more aggressive steering, move the shock position inward on the rear arms, it makes a very noticiable change...

I think after a few laps of practice, that is what I did. That is how I liked my yokomo setup.

Hey Dave, have you got any more info on the Alex Racing setup board you mentioned a while back?
Photo's?

Edit: silly me just found it on the Alex Racing website, looks a little plain though would need a nice big logo on it, or atleast some measurement lines.
