Have you run it yet, and what does the floating steering do on carpet, or have you attached the servo to the chassis?

Hi
Right I'm struggling with the rear of the car cocking a wheel through the bends causing the car to sound like the diff is slipping. Car is pretty planted but could be quicker if I wasn't losing traction from the rear lifting.
Any help would be appreciated

A fast guy taught me how to play with the side sorings on my carpet car.

Start with medium stiffness spring just touching with car sitting at ride height then screw them down 2 turns preload.
Drive car, rear wheel lifting? Too stiff, back off spring preload 1 turn.
Still lifting? go to lighter spring and start again, 2 turns preload etc.

If/when front wheels lifting, side springs too light, go back the other way.

So basically, turning the preload no more than 2 turns up or down tells me when to go to a different spring

This worked well for me

Now when it grip rolls it's both wheels lifting at the same time.

Anyone have some insight on the comparison of the original x1 and the 2016 on track?

First said, I am not the best driver ever.
I have the feeling the new car is smoother. Out of the box with standard setup it easy to drive, but the original one was also. Seems the side tubes provide better feel lacking snaps. There is no tweak and due to the machined piece superseding the two front end rear upper plate studs, it is harder to through the front out of alignment on smaller crashes. The rear axle provides the same excellent action as the original one. Of course, some of the feel may have been given by the newly assembled kit as my old one, although maintained, has been raced weekly for 10 months.

All in all, with the touches it got, it is a better car than the original.

Thanks for this tip, I actually thought it was the other way around, tightening the side springs to prevent the wheel lifting. Will try this technique this weekend to see how it goes.

How does the tube damper oil thickness change (or does it) when using this spring tuning method?

I gotta mention that this carpet track is high to higher grip, traction roll city.
On lower grip, could all be different. Just telling what worked for my car.

I haven't touched the kit setup fluids, shock or side damper
