Posted this in the race thread, but this is a little more active. What is the schedule for the Clash, I have seen practice on the 20, while other places I have seen say the 21-23?

just picked up some Double dd's and groovys in green compound for my B4 WC. How would you suggest trimming the foams?

I run the full foam in the rear. In the front, I use rear foam narrowed 1/4" and then inner & outer edges trimmed. If you need more steering, the stock front foam uncut works well.

I'm not sure and will have to look into that.

ok, so trimming the outside edges gives more steering. good to know. I always trimmed in inside edge to help the bead seat better and the outside edge to round the foam, but was never sure why.

That's not what I was trying to say. I mentioned trimming the edge on the rear foam for the front because we are basically stuffing an insert that is to big into the tire. This gives a more forgiving feel than running the stock softer foam that comes with the front tire.

ok, sorry. so you leave the rear foams alone and just glue up the tires. Then use rear foams in the front cut to 3/4 and edges trimmed.

Correct; it doesn't hurt if you want to trim the inner edge to help with the bead.
