I would think that with traction being at a minimum you may wish to run M03M - just a bet more stable the short chassis.

If they have a long straight (over 100'), and generally an open layout, and you get to run a 21 tooth pinion, I'd be real tempted to also bring the M-04 with you. While the M-04 is a real handful on asphalt, we have had good success with it on carpet - until nathan got his swift, the miata was his favorite mini. The only real drawback to the m-04m on carpet can be on the start on the tone - you can't just stomp on it when the tone goes off or you'll end up kicking the rear around and going left into the wall. Once you're rolling, however, it can really go. Matt & Steve Key have been runing m-04m's at trackside for quite a while as well and may have some tips for you.

If you decide you want to try the m-04m on carpet, I can get you a set up on that as well. .
Thank you very much for the set up. Last year it was a swift only class, and fred said it may be the same this year. So your setup will probably be very usefull. If they allow all cars i'm definatly going to give the M04M a shot. I'm going to try to get in touch with Garber to ask him for his setup. Remember he was able to race the miata in japan and he did well. I'm curiouse to see what kind of difference the R parts in the back will make on the rear drive car.

If that is the case you better start hunting down a set of swaybars. . .

Yeah, Yanni's so last year. I much prefer the warblers and yodelers now- cut at least a tenth off my lap times, lowers the blood pressure, and grew back hair in some of the thinning areas

I don't think so
The thinning spot or due to children
But worth a try

The only place I could find them was in England for $40 ish bucks. I did not buy them, was tempted but did not. If you cannot find them let me know I will dig up the link.

Yawnie would put me to sleep on the driverstand besides I don't think he races. . .

This probably won't help, but there are some Korean websites that list the M04 sway bars.

If Troy is too demanding, see me because I know where Troy got his.
