I watched a little bit of the videos from the 2wd buggies and I have a better understanding why Cherry is always telling us weird stuff. That track has stupid grip. I feel like if I raced there I would be doing everything I could to take grip away from my car.

Is it me or does it look really flat too? Maybe it was just the camera angle.

Not flat. Plenty of elevation. Grip is always pretty high.

Yeah, super high grip. Was interesting to see some of the top 4wd cars traction roll in the A-mains.

Asked Brent and he said they have a couple tracks in Cali with the same or more grip like Trcr.
Awesome grip & stays consistent though out the day.

Kudos to JConcepts for hosting a great event for us here in the N/w..


Tires
The dirt webs wear a little longer , front tire is smoother and has same steering.
Rear offers more around grip with out slowing rotation down.

The bar codes were great also after the grip came up later in the day.

Don't forget Aka and their new tires, they were doing great also.

I believe AKA tires took stock buggy and stock short course wins.

Just like the Barcodes I was getting a crap load of run time out of them on my track after I got the pins wore down to the angle they get to at my track after a few runs. They are still basically a fresh 90% tread tire with tons of life after a weekend of hard racing. (look at the IRCR April Fools setup Steven Hartson was running at our track ~petitrc~)
His buggy and wheeler were dialed! He was literally hooked up after a minimal amount of time at our track using Dirt Webs.

I have the ryobi cordless screwdriver. The only downfall is it does not have a setting as low on the slipper setting that goes low enough for me.

I ended up picking up the dewalt Gyroscptic cordless screwdriver. On the lowest setting it usually won't even screw the bolt in all the way on my Rc cars. So u don't have to worry about stripping out the plastic or aluminum threads. At the same time it has more power overall tho. Best of both worlds.

The gyro feature is odd and takes a bit to get used to. U don't have a forward or reverse. Or even a speed setting. U pull the trigger and turn the gun the way u want to go. The farther u turn the faster it goes. Simply turn it the opposite direction to reverse and again the farther u turn the faster it goes. It's just like using a hand tool the way u normally would. It does still have 15 slipper settings.

The other model I would concider is the Hitachi cordless screwdriver. It's just as adjustable with standard controls.

Both are more than the ryobi. But worth it to me. I have 5 cars. Saves a lot of time. I keep it on a low setting and tighten the last bit by hand to prevent stripping anything.
