Default returning to racing?

hi all

i used to post on here a couple of years back when i raced regularly, and i'm getting back into the hobby after 18 months out.

i used to race on tarmac, and the new local club is on carpet. can you reccomend general setup changes that i might want to try?

also, i'm guessing i'll need some new cells, the old ones are probably a bit tired!! can anyone reccomend a good set of budget cells that are available in the UK?

any other tips on racing, what to take etc would be appreciated, i'm a bit rusty!!!

its a Yokomo MR4 TCR. basically it was a slightly uprated version of the original TC, with alloy motor mount, UJs, top deck etc.

i'm running a GM V12XC speedo which is quite nice . all the other gear like radio eqpt is basic, and there's a control 19T orbital motor. using a pro-peak supernova (?) charger, although i reckon my cells will be dead!!

i don't really want to spend much money, its just for fun, but i want to be able to finish heats!!!
