Default Shock setting for TC3/BMI Chassis

I need a good starting point with this chassis. I run rubber and foam indoor carpet. What oil/piston/spring should I try first. The track is smooth with tons of grip.

Thanks!

A good place to start is 60wt front w/#2 pistons and 50wt rear w/#2 pistons. Yellow srings front, purple springs rear. DBL Purple/Orange foams on front, purple foams on rear.

you can try #2 pistons with 70 wt. in front with purple springs
50wt. in rear with copper springs.
purple/orange (never heard of DBL purple/orange) fronts
and purple rears
this will be a good startign point at probably 90 percent of the carpet tracks you race at.

Look in the back of the manual. It has a carpet setup thats a good starting point.
