I started by moving the shocks out 1 hole front and rear, it seemed to help a little, then I broke just before the main.

Thats what I started with and it was lose through the hole turn. It kind of hard to try one thing at a time. I am getting some new tires and hopeful it will help a little.

Sorex 28 with JB thin blue or Yellow inserts will give you a lot more grip than "slippery CS 27:s".
Canīt understand why TakeOff CS 27 is so popular. I regard it as a quite bad tyre.

Traction is bad with CS22's with euro carpets and your limited traction componds. The carpet we race on is higher bite and we have traction compounds that might make you grow a 3rd arm from the center of your chest...lol!

With Paragon or TQ purple on CS27's you can have enough grip to easily traction roll.

Hello,

Try more rear toe-inn, 3deg is good!!

Spashett had the same problems with his car at last years GP Carpet World Cup and I put 2x1.3mm hole pistons and 60wt oil in all his shocks and that made a HUGE difference on his car!!
His car was right on pace after that, so I suggest you give it a try!!

ill run my JRXS there this next Wednesday and see how my setup does...all i would change is the tires

changing your tires is gonna make a huge difference on that track...when we used to run there a few years ago we never ran CS 27's...we ran Sorex 28 with HPI red inserts all around or Sorex 28 with HPI red insert in the front and Sorex 24 with HPI red insert in the back
