Softer front spings, less rear wing height, stiffer rear springs, or less front castor: those work for me on asphalt so they should work the same on carpet.

I did asked for the part number for Losi spool pads (Chad was talking about it few pages back), but non of you good drivers respond to my question. So here is the part number in case anybody else need it. Losi spool pads = 3250.

I will post one later this week when I have time to unpack every thing.
The track was out doors on foam tyres

BTW, the car was powered by a Trinity Green Machine 3, worked perfectly for the tight, technical track. Also had the grunt to pull harded through the flat out sweepers on the straight where the monsters were loading up.
