Kit set up works on the 6.1 on carpet. Only change I made was one hole higher on the inner rear camber link. Car is predictable with great turn in. Just my opinion.

Would a novice driving a silver can actually know the difference? Could they tell if some shims were needed somewhere or something needs to be moved to a different hole?

Pretty sure just getting it around the track without breaking would be the focus.... just my opinion..

Wish I had a 6.1 as my first car when I started...... not that I would've known what to do with it. My TA02 was complicated enough....

Didn't you say you also added more rear toe, as well?

A novice wouldn't know the difference, which is why I'm going to make sure his car is set up properly and easy to drive, so that he won't be unknowingly fighting something the car is doing wrong.

First five walls that get hit at any decent speed will tweak that fancy setup.....

Remote Control Hobbies in Woodinville had one in stock recently. The one I bought from them was $20.

And that's the first couple lessons in setup:
1) The car handles differently when you hit stuff.
2) All the things to check to make sure you've put it back the way it's supposed to be.

Fighter, I've got a couple of silvercans you can have, I'll be at the track Saturday. Stop by my pit table.

If you are chasing your tail because everything you try makes your car worse, make sure you check that your tires are properly super glued.

It's best to hit something and take off like nothing happened, u will dial yourself out of the race if you do that, hit something and continue to drive it like you stole it!

All you have to do is be repetitive, every run do the same things to your car, clean the tires the same, sauce the same, make sure everything is smooth and you will be good to go! Fun fun fun is key to sticking with this hobby

Looks like they were "Properly" glued. You just drove so hard you tore the rubber right off the wheel!

Yes always check tires after every run. If you are running mod or roll a few times or your car meets the boards they will always need to be checked.
