Randman, you're going to have to come over here so I can show you a real challenge
sheesh, you don't even know what mini pins are
they're pretty much the same as mini pin off road tyre but touring car sized of course the pins are needed to get through the layer of dust and get some grip on the varnished floor below, only problem is he pins can wear away quick. Different wooden floors act very differently though, some need new tyres for you to get grip, others are better with fairly worn tyres, almost bald on occasion. Some people don't even use insirts, and you can get 21mm wide versions too, they wear too fast for my wallet though.

With a softer and softer setup I am finding corner speed is reasonably good, of course it's nothing like tarmac, it's a different style of driving but once you get into the flow it can be fun. Although it's easier to have a bad setup indoors, which can be a pain in the rear end but so far the cuda has been good.

lol mini pins is the only way to go for wooden floor racing and the narrower tires make the car a bit more agressive and have quiker changeovers its grate fun racing on wood because u have to eb a lot more carefull in your driving and it kinda takes u abck to basics making you drive really smoothly cuz if you dont u jsut spin out

heres a pic of our track its not wooden floor but has the same handling charactaristics

I know about low traction racing... I raced offroad for about 5 years before I got into touring cars. I can do it, but high grip is much more fun I think...

Add about 20 grams to the motor side and try it out again... some of mine did that before if I was using a light servo.... there is a few more things you can do but try this 1st

Striker:
Take a good look at your outdrives, especially up front, makes a big difference if the slots are worn out.

And how exactly do you tweak your car? I like the old school Exacto lift from bottom center of the chassis Front & Rear in race ready form to check for even weight distribution side to side, setup wheels are preferred for accuracy here.

Also make sure the oneways are in good condition.

good luck.
