I've seen it posted somewhere. I believe it was on their facebook page.

I would head to facebook and become a member of ARC Driver. Not many ARC guys come out here any more. Especially from across the pond. Ask your question there, I'm sure you'll get plenty of options and opinions for ETS carpet.

Wanted to say thanks to Team ARC USA and Hobby Authority Distribution for the opportunity. Also I have previously ran the 2013 R10, 2015 R10 and the 2017 R11 so I'm familiar with how awesome this chassis is. I took a short time of absence once the black carpet was introduced but now I'm back on. I just received both my 2018 R11's, one for 17.5 TC and the other will be Modified TC. If anyone has questions regarding set up or tuning on the black carpet I'm happy to help. Also I'll be heading south over the weekend to get some 17.5 action as my debut of the new chassis. Stay tuned for results.

Congrats! I've been running the 2018 on asphalt for a couple of months now and it's really starting to come around. The car is good.

Thank You! Glad your enjoying the ARC. This platform has come along way and certainly gets better every generation. As mentioned I did take about a 2 year leave of absence to run X-ray but I'm stoked to lose the orange and be back on board with ARC. Unfortunately I don't have any asphalt tracks in the area, although have several nice indoor tracks that all have the new black carpet and all are on sub-floors. Feeling Motivated

First meeting with the new 2018 R11 on the black carpet was great. Took the TQ and the win. Must say the car accepts adjustments very well. Only had 3 hours total of testing/tuning prior to the main but I feel like I'm close to having a baseline setup. Car is solid and I'm happy to be back. I can provide my winning setup for black carpet if anyone is interested.

I have to say after not running TC for some time I started in 17.5 super stock. Lets just say I will be jumping down to 21.5 stock TC. But with some help with a local ohio sponsored driver I was able to wheel the car around with ease of use. The R11 responds to changes asap.
The set-up on the chassis is perfect for newbie on black carpet. If your looking to a set-up that's a base I would highly recommend it. I can post the set-up later on this week if anyone would like to look at it.
I must say I am highly impressed with the ARC chassis. I will be looking to another used arc R11 2018 as I have to regrets buying this chassis. Looking for more track time and races to come.

I've been running the R11 2018 for about 6 weekends and it's a big step in the right direction. It's on pace with all of the TC7.1s and T4s at our track. I use the aluminum chassis on a medium-high traction asphalt track, and it's amazing. Great car here!

I've only been able to run my 2018 R11 for a few race days. Looking for opinions for the upcoming Reedy race. Specifically PDS shocks & aluminum or graphite chassis. Any other tips would be appreciated! Thanks!

I have an ARC 2018 and have run both the graphite and aluminum chassis on asphalt. Car is great. I haven't tried the PDS on the car however. I've been running the aluminum chassis for the last few months. I don't think it is any faster, but seems to be a little easier to drive. I'll have my car at Reedy, however I'll be running my Xray since there will be more support for it there. A lot of us AZ guys will be running an aluminum Xray chassis, and my Xray with aluminum drives very similar to the ARC. If I was going to run my ARC at Reedy, I would start with 35wt oil, .3 roll center shims in front, .5 roll center in rear, a progressive spring in the front (like SMJ Red, or xry 2.5 - 2.8), and green ARC springs in rear (or like Xray 2.6). Like 5.6 rear ride height, 5.4 front ride height. 5.6 front, 4.4 rear, under a-arms down stop. 2 degrees rear toe in, 1 degree front toe out. I'll have my car if you want to check it out.

Thanks for the info! Parts of my setup are similar. I am running mod and can always use more grip. The PDS shocks helped I think. I have also tried anti-dive, anti-squat and will go back to the aluminum chassis. Although I turned the same lap times with both, I agree with you that the aluminum seemed easier to drive and more consistent.

I know that this thread isn't used very much but I deleted my FB account so I don't have access to the FB group anymore.

I have a question about the differences in the 2017 v 2018 chassis. I just purchased the 2018 arm mounts with the inserts and installed them on my 2017 chassis. When I tried using the arm mount chart for the rear, my tire angles weren't corresponding to the chart. For example, the chart lists 2* or rear toe if using the 0 inserts on both the RF and RR blocks. However, I get 0*. To me that means that the 2018 chassis has 2* of rear toe already built into the mounting position of the blocks. Can anyone validate this?

Also, the FR block mounting holes were slightly off center so I'm thinking that the 2018 chassis has some slight variation when compared to the 2017 one.
