Yeah, ackerman and bumpsteer are quick, easy changes you can make and get the car back out to test.

Sorry guys, I just realized I never introduced myself here...New ARC/Viper Team member here.

I will be here to help as much as possible. Getting my equipment ordered soon but chassis and setup stuff is pretty universal. I mainly run outdoor asphalt in Florida and have been around racing a long time.

thanks. ill be trying that. the real bummer is we dont have a permanant track. so we get about and hour and a half or so of practice and tune time then its right into racing after the tracks set up. last night i did not finish one qual or the main. it was sooo hard to drive smoothly.

Henrik's set up is pretty good if any is struggling on the rug. There is also an IIC Set up which is pretty dialed as well. Both set-ups can be found on the ARC Driver Facebook page or Pettit rc..

not only carpet is different .But you going from 25.5 to 17.5 that is a lot difference in driving styles also...
I'm surprise you didn't ask Kody for his help. Watching Kody 17.5 last night was incredible

i did ask for a little help and he gave me a few suggestions. he seemed a bit preoccupied with other things so i didnt want to bother him too much. im going to try a few things. i think my high roll centers may have been some of the problem.

I ended up with heinricks setup. a couple small changes and i can wheel the car now. hd to move the front upper shock position all the way out but its drivable. a little tweaking on the setup and it will be better for me.
