Default carpet set-up for yokomo cgm

hello,
i was wondering if someone could be helpfull on giving me a set-up to try for the yokomo cgm.i am using d/pink rears and d/pink/orande in the front.i basically need to know shouck oils/springs/ride height/droop.the basics.i tride using the car with a 40 weight oil in back and a 60 weight oil in the front.white rayspeed springs in the front and green yoke springs in the back.and i had purple foams all the way around.well the car was to aggresive.so i changed to the d/pinks-d/pink/orange and it was pushy.so then i tride a sway bar in the back and it helped alot.but the car was very wondery exiting a turn.and at last moment of exiting it came around with a very bad wash.i ran my droop at 1.5mm in the back and 1mm in the front.

Run about 2mm of suspension travel in the front and 3 to 4mm of suspension travel in the rear. Go heavier springs in the front like Yokomo GT Gray and in the rear Yokomo GT Silver. Try asking this on the SD thread, you will get more help there.

Hey Morris, I have a pretty good setup that I ran on our high bite ozite track. I will try to post it for you tommorrow. It is a Tosolini Cleveland set up with a few changes. The springs used were gt4 brown front, asc purple rear. You could use asc white in the front though. Also a very heavy sway bar in front if you traction role much. Not many people run a rear sway bar on carpet though. Later..........Hank
