Default Awesomatix set ups

I'm interested in carpet set ups for this car as we have one of the biggest races in western Canada coming up January 8-10 in Victoria.

I do, but I've only ever run it on asphalt so I wouldn't be much help there I'm afraid.

OK no problem. We also run them outdoors in the summer so I'll have to change it then to.

Mike Gee's 2015 carpet nats setup is a good starting point for carpet

I'm an asphalt only guy as well, so I can't give direct input, but I've never gone wrong starting out with a Mike Gee setup. I bet Kyle Klingforth setups would be really good to look at for carpet as well. Here's another great place for setup sheets: Petit RC

John,

Pm Frank, for his setup that he has been running the last few weeks.. It works extremely well on our type of tracks and will be a good starting point for Victoria this year. If you don't have his # Txt me and I can send it to you.

Setups from our EU team drivers are here:

http://awesomatix.info/en/setups/

Please note that EU setups are with stiffer suspension and with higher roll centers compare to setups from US drivers.
Please note also 1mm shims under lower ST03 balls on AM06.

Viljami Kutvonen latest setup is attached.
