6.8 is not much time to do much of anything unless you are Ray or Buddy.

True and good point. But last night I picked up some new SMC 3800 that are at 1.2 AV and 1.7-1.8 IR. I predict 6.8 will be falling this weekend...then I'll be stuck on 6.7. LOL

It's looking like I'll be able to attend a club race at a much bigger track in a few weeks that has some good competition. Hopefully I'll make a good showing.

Greetings,
I have a Losi JRX-S.
I am struggling a bit with the suspension. I am racing carpet rubber tires.
The stock setup is somewhat good but the car rolls alot and the front end is way too soft. I tried a setup I saw on Losi website that had 60W front and 50 spring but that was to stiff.

I want to try this setup:
Front: 45w or 50w oil and one or two spring stiffnes up from original
Rear: 45 w oil and one spring stiffness up from original.

Front original spring is 35, Rear original spring is 12,5.

Can anyone show me a spring stiffness chart, I cant find it on Losi´s website.

Thanks for the help.

For carpet racing with rubber tires, most guys have been running the Josh Numan asphalt set-up with the BK suspension brackets. Then tune form that point forward. I hope this helps.
