Default Help with grip and set up

Hi guys,

Just been to a club meeting at a local track, its an indoor running track with a rubbery surface. Rubber tires which are moorespeed, no additive.

Really struggled to get the car to work, it worked well for 30 seconds. When tires were warm from warmers and clean. Soon as they picked up dust it was poor.

Any reccomendations to stop tires picking up dust? Or to keep heat in them?

Thanks

Compare you set up to others at the club (I'm assuming don valley?) and see if your differs much from them.

Other than that, due to the surface, it's really important to stay on the racing line.

Best wishes
Luke

Yes it was don valley. No one was really going that fast. But comparing to the last indoor winter series my car looked terrible compared to the fast guys there, of whoms set up i am merely identical to.

Thanks

The problem with club meetings at don valley compared to the winter series is that the club track has so many fewer people running on it, the track never gets a groove in it. Whereas the winter series track has one before the end of practise.

Unfortunately your always going to be fighting a loosing battle there.

That was what i was thinking, so you think on race day the grip will come? How do you set a car up to plan for that?

Thanks
