SoCal is kind of a world of it's own though, and the newer layouts are stupid tight and technical, gotta be ready for hairpins all over the place.

Talking

It may have been answered but, alas, I'll ask

Todd said he liked the long link mod in the front on carpet as well, but this is on the "soon to be released" R version.

Anyone ran it on the rug? In stock?

Lastly, if anyone has the "killer" stock setup for carpet I would love to have a copy.

Thanks!

I'm running the 1 deg. offset hubs and 1 deg. block too. Also, I am running the front camber mod. So far for my track the Matt Howard set-up has been the best. Don't go by me though since I ahve only been on the rug a couple of times. If you guys try running the new arms and softer springs I think you will like it. Even my best set-ups with the original shock positions and heavy springs and oil were just WIERD feeling. It could just be me since I have spent the past 3 yrs on asphalt so try it for yourself. REMEMBER!!!!!!! Even though we are running the carpet for the most part, Each track has carpet from different batches and of diff. ages all on different surfaces at diff. temps. There are several out there now so find one that feels good to you and start playing with the shims on the front and rear roll centers untill you get a better feel for it on your own track. I'm just as spoiled as the rest of us with the Neuman set-up on asphalt as its been the best all around starting point on the pavement. I just feel the carpet is a different beast! Good Luck fellas and let us know what works best at your local track.

FreqETag- I have run the JR link on the front camber position, on a front motor car, on carpet, and it didn't improve my lap times at all. This doesn't mean that you shouldn't try it, just my feedback to your question. I have also run some stock on carpet with the front motor car (foam tires) and I would recommend you start with Craig Xavier's Cleveland set up. I know that Craig has posted a link on this thread...just run a search. It is a pretty neutral and stable starting point.

roadrash- A 2 degree rear hub is not commercially available at this time; you can acheive a similar result in the way you have described above (ie, one degree inboard toe, one degree hub = 2 degrees).
