It helped a lot but since moving to the Hudy C1 tyres (I was given a load of used ones) it's become very prone to hooking in the corners, while being a bit understeery on ashpalt. I'm thinking of getting the fine light blue and blue green springs as they're more in line with the modern spring rates. Worth a shot?

Im not familiar with that car, but there are plenty of things carpet guys do to prevent the issues you're having with the modern chassis. I'm sure someone can help you at the track. Perhaps theres someone that can help you at your track? One thing you can try is gluing the sidewall/seam with super glue. Start with halfway up the side. These two videos have good info on how they do it. You don't need the tire sander device unless you are competing nationally IMO.

I tried the gluing when I was using sorex 28s, it certainly helped but mostly because it reduced front grip a lot, making the car understeer. I'd rather find a way of getting more rear stability and keeping the front solid like it already is.
Iv got a suspicion I'm running way too much Ackerman, I will also try some softer springs on the back although that would give a big difference in spring rates front to rear.

Default HPI Pro4 Exotek!

Yes, the good old Lady with Exotek Full Conversion is very competitive!

Car is just amazing! A friend of mine drove my racing car in 13.5t Stock and he's had no problems at all to hold up with the speed of the Xray and Yokomo guys! The car has so much corner speed and good traction and you can feel the advantage of a shaft driven car in and out of the corners. Also, the car is very easy to setup. HPI Pro4 and Exotek is a winner! Pictures of my spare car (for sale)

For carpet, I pretty much always fell back on the the box setup, to the exception of white springs all around and a bit of arm sweep (front inboard toe-out).

Without necessarily gluing the sidewall (although it might help of course), be sure to check the gluing of your four tires after each run. In my experience the rubber gets torn off the rim very easily.
