Thanks for your time.F1 still rocks more then ever.
Good luck keeping up with the 104's on carpet... Direct Drive on such high bite is a tough combo to beat...

Here my FGX carpet set up...

1) Hard rear shock springs with 2000 weight stock lube
2) Stiff rear sway bar
3) Medium front springs with 10,000 lube
4) Titanium king pin with 8mm Pom Ball
5) 48 Pitch / 35 Spur / 26 - 28 Pinion
6) reinforce the front upper and lower arms with piano wire and shoe goo
7) 3 degree rear toe in/ 1 degree front toe out/ 2 degree rear camber / 1 degree front camber
8 ) 4mm ride height front and back
9) Shimizu 0565 and 0561 ... The rear insert foam I shave the thickness in half with a dremel...
Sauce full rears and 3/4 fronts
