Default setup for low grip carpark track

Does anyone have a setup for a low grip carpark style surface?
its actually a carpark thats made into atrack on weekends.

its a small-medium size track that is tight. im used to running on high grip surfaces so i was thinking of going out with factory setup and working on it form there but was looking for a few tips from you guys

thanks!
John

I ran Kyosho and Skyline mounts and the Kyosho mounts have never failed on me yet. The skyline mounts did eventually strip. The Kyosho mount is better.

Yes the Kfactory is much heavier than the Kyosho..there is a spool out there made by km racing group that I have found to be the lightest as of yet..

try:
10000 rear diff
37 shore front and rear tires
lock the front with a spool
blue springs rear, light blue front
500 weight oil in shocks
rear shocks two holes up from bottom
front shocks all the way down
might need to add a little camber front and rear maybe extra .5 to 1 degree
additional than stock



try these things or some of them and see what happens
definitely the diff do that first and tires

hope this helps

Thanks robert, that setup is close to what i have already tried on a similiar surface. good to see im on the right path

with the one piece mount i think i had just been over tightening it.

What, and why would you want a smaller bumper?

As for the pipe, I just dremeld or shaved a little bit off of the 2nd spring hole and a tad under the actual exhaust port itself. Ran it all last weekend and it didnt touch a bit, or no signs on the belt atleast.

I raced @ port charlotte for the florida round up Awesome track they put on a really good show I just wasn't able to go back on sunday was able to lay in 15.9 in practice but Joe sumasky had the fastest practice laps @ 15.7 just could not get the same lap times in qualifying could not break the 16's
I went with the stock set up
spool in front
50wt front 60wt rear
10,000 diff started with 30
then I made some roll center adjustments since the track cooled down alot
Tire was really low
pm me your set up or post it
