-Rubber Tires on asphault

Yea, if it's low to medium then run basically the stock setup-

All references are fr/rr-

white/yellow springs
30wt w/2 hole fixed pistons both ends
3* caster blocks
front hinge pin holders- middle/bottom (that's middle front and bottom rear)
rear hinge pins- bottom/bottom
no swaybars (never on asphalt)
2/3 droop
6mm both ends if bumpy track- 5mm if smooth
shock towers- 2nd hole out/3rd hole out ( stand front shock up more if car is too hard to drive- lay rear down if car is hooked but has too much steering)
Mazda 6 or Stratus 3.0 AP

Thanks again BigDog. I will try that set-up and see how the car handles with it. I know that with every car we have to make certain changes to make the car handle a little better. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out.

My Region 1 race is this weekend at RC Madness in Enfield CT and I want to try and do good. I usually run my TC3 outdoors but I want to make a showing with my FK'05.

As far as racing on carpet. Its like night and day with these 2 cars. Driving my Xray makes me want to throw my TC3 in the garbage but it was my first touring car and has served me well for the past 2 years so I could not do it.

Well then just wait til you get the FK05 dialed in- you WILL throw the TC3 in the trash!!! It has soooooo much steering and corner speed, dude you will have to relearn how to drive!!

If you aren't sure about tires, the CS27s are always a good baseline. If the track temps go above 140 then the RP36 or CS32 will work as well. ACtually the RP36 or RP30 will work fine below 140. Make sure you get some SXT traction compound or use Trinity (I hate typing that word) Buggy Grip to clean the tires after every run-at the very least.

Oh I guess you got jokes too, huh? That's all good, speaking of two laps down, I guess that's where you do your best racing. j/k Guy, see you on the rug.
