Anyone have a complete set up sheet for carpet? My car feels good, would just like to try and get it better.

I'm not sure why this thread has died. With carpet season here you would think there would be more people running this car and sharing setups.

I've only run mine 2 times and I'm still fighting an on power push. I'm going to try widening the side links and loosening the screws on the front arms. Does anyone else have any other suggestions? The setup is pretty much stock with Pit/TCS tires on med grip carpet.

you can try less camber and less caster setup (i'm not sure if the trf101 has a caster setting)
you can stiffen the lateral damper too

Please let me know how it works for you. I have the same issue with a push on power. Off power perfect, on power not so perfect.

The tracks I run here are not what you would call high bite more med but I have mine setup with silver springs on the front and side pod with 35wgt oil in the shock with the tamiya red spring, 10,000 diff oil on the dampner and the springs set touching plus two turns tension. 571f and 572r pit tires with 4mm ride height. I have the links setup middle on the chassis and inside on the pod. the car is on rails for me with this setup. Hope that helps ya out. Also moved the side springs to the outside hole.
