Default Setup for New Black CRC Carpet

I am running my D07 in 17.5 blinky and want to know what would be a good "starting" setup for the new CRC black carpet?

Thanks,

Jon

I'd check on Petit RC site for a setup on high traction carpet and fine tune from there. You probably want to change out to the Gold or the new red suspension parts though.

Oddly enough I found Ryan makers basic asphalt setup worked extremely well on carpet.

Just curious, but what is the general consensus on the center mounted steering system as to performance and durability w/o having to read thru all 50 pages?

I removed the floating steering system from all of my cars, but only to reduce weight and complexity. However, i never did have any issues with the floating steering. With the steering posts mounted to the chassis; i had to check the tightness of the screws periodically since they would sometimes loosen, even with blue loctite.

You get more steering and a more direct feeling, when You change to chassis mounts.

Default Front belt replacements

I was wondering what other belts would fit this car for front and rear? I have been told there are other cars that use the same ones but I can't for the life of me remember which ones they are, I know there are replacements available from VBC directly but I was wondering if there is a low friction option for belts.

Any help is appreciated.

I noticed this thread is fairly dated up to a few post ago. Looking at a used on for sale. Are these just outdated? Considering a new Ghost 18. Is a Do7 still fairly competitive? Or Should I should get a new Ghost18? I am just getting back into on-road and not much time running at the on road at that.
