For the really big jumps they have there I would say yes. For the dirt I would say no. I switch to 2 hole setup for tracks like Hot Rod dry blue groove or CCR (sugared). Otherwise I tend to like the 4 hole setup.

Where did the term "blue groove" come from? Man this stuff confuses me when there are terms that aren't very self-explanatory. I'm picturing a track that literally has grooves in it that are painted blue. lol.

On a clay track the rubber from the tires rubs off onto the track. Creating a blue groove on the racing line, similar to real 1:1 race car\tracks..

I won't mention LCG or WOT acronyms..

Casper / Ryan,

I'm working on the new Dunford setup on Casper's website. Can you please expand on the #3 piston and the shocks. Can the pistons & shocks be found in these tlr items?

Those part numbers will give you all the pistons and springs you need. You will need 2 packs of the pistons in order to do 4 shocks, unless you already have some from your kit.

Being you need 2 #3 and 2#4 pistons you only need one pack. Kit comes stock with these pistons so you should not need to buy any.

If you can acess "JQ the guide" online , it does a nice job explaining how the pistons work and how the number of holes and sizes effect performance. The whole thing is a good read actually .

So rc madness put sugar down for the first time for this weekends short course nationals. I'm guessing the track will turn blue groove now. I doubt what we've been running for tires will work, but could be wrong. Can anyone with experience on a hard packed natural dirt blue groove track speculate what tires might work? I'd like to see if my lhs has anything before I head out.

Casper,
I thought the newest Dunford setup used #3 pistons front and back...

You are correct, the latest setup uses the same piston front and rear.

Something with a small or low profile pin. Handlebar, barcode, maybe even grid iron. And I would loosen up the rear a little stiffer spring and or roll bar or maybe even move the link down on the tower. Try them 1 at a time. High bite tracks are rough on these cars and tires.
