Pretty excited to see what the new car has in store though i think it will be more of the conventions we see elsewhere. But this is ok.
My first car was a 12r5.1 so might be time to come back to ae camp.

I don't run for AE and haven't for a long time but I think it's important to acknowledge when a cool new product is released from any company and I think this is one people who run AE cars will be very happy with.

I got a 12R5.1 with lipo conversion kit to install. Does anyone have a good CRC grey carpet setup for 17.5 class? Any help is appreciated.

Blue front tires, Green rear tires, Associated blue center spring, Black side springs, Associated 18 or 19 front springs is a good starting point

I used these when I ran AE.

Leave a little flashing on them and they fit nice and snug.

The CRC ones work well and allow with much finer adjustments than the standard Associated ones.

Default help with setup problems

I'm having trouble getting the car to be smooth and less twitchy. I have changed the car to run a transverse battery by using the pivot assembly and upper deck from a 12r6. Only other change is the shock, using a one from a 12r6.

We run on CRC black carpet and I'm using the CRC spec tire. The car is not easy to drive and likes to lift the rear inner wheel. Its so responsive just breathing on the steering makes it react hard.

I have tried a soft setup like Keven H but it seems to make it even more aggressive. Soft side springs and heavy tube lube (20k) make the rear wheel lift problem even worse. I was running the dynamic caster block at 10deg and changed it to 5deg, this was the only adjustment which made the car somewhat easy to drive. I have no idea why a soft rear setup is not helping. A fellow racer has a CRC car running soft setup and the car is super smooth to drive.

Attached is my current setup that is somewhat driveable. I hope someone can see something I missed. The only thing I was thinking was to remove the 1mm lower arm spacer and make the front end narrower. I have also tried a high amount of steering expo and turning down the dual rate.
