    OK, went to the carpet last night with my new Rally and did a bunch of testing. Unfortunately the onroad track was re-routed to simply a carpet oval. The stock tires are way too slippery on the carpet unless the car is in training mode. Surprisling enough it is fun with the stock tires in training mode. I put s set of 35 shore rubber tires and this thing was a rocket ship! Way too much droop and side traction. I tie strapped the rockers to the ride height i wanted and that helped alot. Adjustable toe would be nice. Bottom line on carpet is that the car is super fast, fun and we will probably have a new spec class!

    Super crappy clip, but you get the point.

    Had the mini slash tires on it with some compound to get traction. Really is a lot of fun!

    I'll try to be there. Not going tonight i don't think, so Saturday is more likely.

    no worries, don't head there just for me. I'll be buying one regardless so I wont need the extra temptation of seeing it in person
