Default Set ups for rubber

Can anyone help?

I have been racing ic for a while now, always on foam.
I have just entered a rubber tire race and am wondering what set up changes would be required when changing from faom spec.
Any advice gratefully received.

I remember there was a rubber class race at one of the races I attended and we all used a front differential. This by far made the biggest difference. Goodluck.

Hi, I believe that you would go for a softer setup for rubber. You would have to consider the inserts that you will use too.
Cheers

Softer springs for sure. However, thicker shock oil and one or two hole pistons work better.

Soft to medium Anti-roll bars are a must with the softer springs as well.
