Default 22sct help sparks park rc raceway

Hey guys Im getting back into RC.

Finally last yesterday I was able to get my 22sct up and running.

I was using the box stock setup. and I am currently using pro line ions in the super soft compound, on all 4 corners stock inserts.

Truck was super hooked up but was really lazy in the corners. I basicly had to creep around all the corners or had to enter the corners near or at lockup to get the rear end to rotate around.

I just noticed that my truck was substantially slower in corner speed than other trucks. I knew the stock setup wouldnt be great but I didnt know that it would feel this lazy. I also have been pouring over setup sheets for a few days now and notice it seems like ever setup for hard pack is using a swaybar setup front and rear. (are swaybars some kind of SCT secret i dont know about?) because when I used to race in the xxx and xxx-t days swaybars in offroad were almost unheard of.

I will be running 17.5 class and would perfer rear motor setup but it wont kill me to run mid motor. But I perfer rear motor for 2 reasons. I already have 2 batteries that are full size not shorties or anything so as far as i know I would not be able to use them in a mid motor configuration. secondly because I only have experience with rear motor cars.

But I would not object to a mid motor setup if its the "hot ticket" ive been reading up on it and it seems like its the way to go if you have gobs of grip but its like driving a completely different truck.

Again if anyone is racing a 22sct at sparks park and wouldnt mind sharing your setup it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again
Sean

My son run's the casper/dunford set up no sway bar's on indoor clay tracks and it is awesome. If your running stock I would stay away from mid motor because of the extra gear in the trans more drag. Good luck
