Default Whats Fast? 1/10 17.5 blinky TC and Cornering speed

Just finished up the indoor racing season at my local track and had a great time. 17.5 blinky TC was some of the most competitive racing and luckily my driving and car evolved and I have gotten much better. Besides the obvious staying off the boards and suitable gearing fort he track my simple question is Whats fast?....I understand I'm setting myself up but in the last few months I have experimented with camber , caster, front roll center, rear roll center, rear toe, front toe, thick Diff oil , thin Diff oil, long camber link , short camber link, wide track width, flex, stiff chassis in search of cornering speed. I run on a high traction track and the layout can vary so any comments on what to do or what not to do to get to the holy grail of Cornering Speed will be appreciated.

Every track and surface requires a different setup, but the box stock setup of the car that is advised in the manual should be a great starting point.

check out this amazingly good website:
http://users.telenet.be/elvo/

It's chocca full of information on car setup far more than any smart alec would post on here.

It's a helluva read to read it all but it's great information, setup also really depends on your driving style, I always thought I liked a car that pushed slightly as I was always faster with this kind of setup but these days I like a much looser car and can go faster this way too.
