Tacompton .2 will be done soon and will include suggestions for other track surfaces.

You're a "teammate" just give us the link to your setup on AE's website.

Thanks for posting the info on the Lunsford titanium. I did not know their stuff was that strong.

I'm curious if color or sheen of the screws is any indicator of the grade? The Lunsford's are silver while all the others I have seen are a dull gray.

I hope that wasnt directed toward me, but to defend myself I merly pointed out what was wrong with his post and what he needed to do to fix it. the rest is up to him. Of course based on how he previously handled this he will just put me on ignore. WC, most of the time has good info just how he says it. Done!

I had some in for two plus months no leaks and just as smooth as the day I put them in.


I have built two rm motor cars and two mm cars never had a ballcup issue and have never popped a ballcup off while driving.

Thanks, at 10 bucks a set I was looking at doing one X ring and one O ring for club races to save a little cash. Assuming the X rings swelled as bad as the O rings

So now you're saying it's all user error and there are no defective or slightly tighter cups ever put into production kits. Based on the fact that you've built a few..

I wouldn't go that far. I can pretty much look at any setup and tell you if it will work and in what conditions. I'm always curious what others like and run. It gives me a good indication of how good they are and how good they have their car. With my experience a track as small as where you run and as much traction as you have you can get away without having that fine tuned setup.

Now this isn't directed at you George. To me setups shouldn't be all that different. A good indication of this is when you look at the setups on AE's website. These are the fastest of the fast and they slightly change. Their is a reason why. Seems most that have a setup that is completely different than what everyone else runs are people are trying to find something to compensate for lack of driving skill. Unfortunately it doesn't do any good searching for something that isn't their.

yes i drive at trcr, not much different from the other tracks around here. of course its the boss..... but the clay is similar to most tracks, as its local and what we have in the ground here. and its not crazy high bite like some people think... it sucks at practice days and gets dusty and wet and we struggle.. we dont have misters or anything like that. but when its a race night and we sweep every heat and lay down rubber on it , you betcha it gets real real good.

the setup is similar to the cali setups and michaels from the jcon race with just a few differences really, nothing too drastic except b5r front arms with the midmotor front tower i guess. with these ae cars there all fairly similar setups with small differences, same basic setup geometry mostly. same with the b4 back when.
