Question B6 setup help for slippy wood floor

Hi guys,

I have a B6 that I run as per the kit setup on a indoor track that is around 30% carpet and 70% ish slippy wooden flooring. (Video of the track here - https://www.facebook.com/HighlandRad...kkdN6nPaRGVkUM)

I run my B6 with Schumacher Mini Pin yellow or Schumacher Cactus yellow rear tyres and the fronts I run Schumacher Low Profile cut staggers in yellow.

The B6 is fine on the carpet but I and other drivers are really struggling with front end grip on the slippy corners. If I add power to try and slide, the front end will push wide, coasting doesn't really bite in either. Only way round is going slow or tapping the brakes slightly to get some rotation. Massive understeer!

Is there anything that should work like for instance, running 2 degree rear toe vs 3. More or less anti squat? Would a stand up 3/4 gear box be better to give more front end bite on the slippy sections?

Rear traction is ok, a tad slippy but generally ok on the straights and exiting corners.

I would like more front end bite, or less rear grip on the corners to get the car to bite. More rotation in the corners etc.

Any idea's or suggestions?

Have you tried silver cut staggers on the front, softer compound may give better bite ?

I have not tried different front tyres yet. I played around with Mini Spikes, Cactus and Mini Pin, all yellow and found the Mini pin best in terms of giving a tad more rotation. The cactus really locked the rear in.

I also thought about maybe running 4wd front cut staggers? I know it's not the done thing, but it might be worth a shot as our track is not really what the cars are designed to run on.

I will add silver cut staggers to my list of things to try - Thank you

What i found on running on wooden floor with my pr 2wd is that it is that i had too much rear grip which would just cause understeer when trying to drive into a corner- i usually had to back right off to get the buggy to turn in-
I found putting stiffer springs on the rear helped.
I was running either yellow mini pin 2 all round or yellow mini spike all round

Thanks.

I guess also going slightly softer on the front spring might have a similar effect as stiffer rear spring.

I think I'll ditch the yellow low profile cut staggers for mini pins or spikes all round for this week.


Thanks

I know you’re running a b6 but I run on the same surface with a b6d at our indoor track and we run minipin 2 all round or minispikes all round .
