if they keep going that route they would cease to exist. more people who actually race are tuning in to this car and that's a good thing.

to your point i'm a tad greedy, I usually only like certain brands only for me lol. when someone elses catches on and run the same thing I jump ship.

I did a bit of playing with various springs at the weekend between my two cars from HPI silver equivalents down to Greens all round - found that Yellows all round made the car nicely compliant, consistent and gave my the fastest lap times.
I have the split blocks on the mod car set to widen the track slightly as well.
I will check it out thanks.

if you know me then you would know I'm pretty sarcastic most of the time. If I was a ARC hoarder I wouldn't have converted as many guys at my track as I did. Lol. As I said from the start over a year ago this car is awesome and continues to get better. My frustration lies in just not having enough parts at any given time from any retailer. That's all. Other than that I'm very happy and glad to see more people jump on board. 😉

I really liked my D06. Great car. This car just feels better on the track. Very smooth and easy to drive. No complaints about the D06 but I'm happy I made the switch.

Jumping back into the carpet tc world and got lucky to do it with a r10 2015. What body are you guys liking on carpet for stock tc? Mazdaspeed still? I see a lot of them with the locals but also some blitz bodies?

Speed 6 is always a great choice for carpet. We've have 3 nights testing the Blitz WRX and has done extremely well in 17.5. GSF is also used often on carpet and asphalt by the Blitz drivers with great results.

On a side note, These Blitz bodies can take a beating. They literally will outlast PF bodies. Ive been using the .7 thickness bodies and they hold up extremely well. I can't comment on the .5 thickness as i haven't used them yet.

Minh Ive heard you run at tq do you have a base set up for tqrc for the 2015? Sean w. Recommended stock should be pretty close, can you comment?

I unfortunately don't run a 2015 car but i do use the new shocks and shock towers. The kit springs will get the job done but i do Recommend arc blue springs all the way around and 1mm under the suspension blocks as opposed to the .5 on the set up sheet. In the front, use 1mm anti dive. Since its been hot lately, i bump the shock oil to 40wt. The rest should get you close. Like Sean said, kit set up is close.

PS. Mind you, Im still using the original solid motor mount and upper bulkheads so i require more shims under the camber link to achieve the same geometry as the new ones.

Is there no action taken from the ARC team to promote this car in Europe? It looks like a great contender by all the testimonials.

The Zen Racing team have been pumping the promotion in the UK, and i think its LMR racing in Germany, with their driver Henrik doing a great job of promotional assistance and performances on the track.

Perhaps advise what part of europe you are having issues in and someone can help?
