I ran black barcodes on a damp clay track that was pretty greasy due to a lack of prep work and a lower morning temperature. They hooked up better than everything else!

Can someone tell me how to cut 3/4 rear foams for the front and make the cut smooth and even around the tire?
I use these for all my tire/insert cutting - Click Here They offer a lower cost version as well.

Do we have an ETA on the carbon fiber steering rack for AE?
No, but they are in packaging and hoping the end of the month.

It's in the green/blue family; basically one step softer than green.

Is there any plans to produce a front axle for the Serpent Spyder SRX so it can use 12mm hexed wheels?
The car already uses 12mm hexes; it's the clearance of the inner webbing that is an issue for direct bolt-on of current wheels. No plans at the moment for specific wheels, but looking into it.

I will try and get something posted. I basically just run setups off the AE site .

Small "y" to the inside has more side bite.

Yes, but Bar Codes are getting priority right now for production .

Yes; we will have them for truck/SCT as well, but I don't have an ETA on those yet.

I like that idea. Thank you. I actually have a truer for foam tires so I'll see if a wheel will go on that.

So I was watching some Motorama videos on youtube and racers were talking about going from gold compound to greens but no mention of blues. I thought it was odd because blue is between green and gold. ?? Maybe it's a damp track and blues don't work well on it?

Gold compound is in its own family and is very different from the green/blue family. Gold (clay compound) is mostly run on wet/damp clay tracks and green/blue are run on drier/dusty tracks. The Motorama track normally starts out cold/damp and golds work well, but the track quickly dries out towards the end of practice and becomes dry and slightly dusty for the rest of the weekend. Most racers switch to greens for qualifying/mains. They normally choose green over blue because its really cold there and they need the softest compound.
