That being said most everyone runs either AKA reds or JC Dirttech (grey). The reds come in faster, but don't last quite as long. The JC take a while to break in. More like 4-6 runs. But they have tended to last longer and provide better traction. It seems that if you have the time to break them in, run the JC grey, but if you need the tires sooner run the AKA red.
yeah, I want to try the dirt tech inserts next. Once the AKAs start to fade, I develop a large amount of push. Trying to tune around foams that are done is impossible.

Hey guys Im going to do some some stock racing with my 17.5 and looking to see what mods are worth doing. I was thinking about doing the slipper eliminator, and maybe the MIP Pucks system if its worth it. Also what gearing would you reccomend for indoor high bit clay?

titanium screw kit, 3 gear, slipper eleminator, parma 1/24 slot car motor pinion, mip pucks, cut gears(cb's custom cut gears), aluminum rear ballstud mount(plastic mount is very weak)
i run a very small track indoor to a very big track. using a trinity d4 1s short stack certified motor i run
29/69 45 motor timing. very tiny track.
31/69 60 motor timing. decent sized indoor track
my brother wit a non cerified 1s short stack on a bigger track runs
32/69 45 timing(when i tried the same with my certified it was a dog)

gearing really depends on the motor and motor timing. i feel as tho 69 spur feels better on tighter tracks. better low end to me

in this photo Brian koch was running a reedy 17.5 at 35/72 gearing

foams i think red aka's work great on super softs, and the grey dirt techs run awesome with clays. i havnt tried the greys in super softs yet. all the tracks i race at have all turned to clay tires

Depends on the motor. KV ratings are all over the place. I'm running an Orion 8.5 vst2 and on a medium size clay track I'm running 24/78 and it's fast. Comes off at 130 with no fan.

I would only do the slipper eliminator if you run on a medium to high bite (and more to the high bite which looks like thats what you run on) track. If there is any dust that builds up on your track I wouldn't recommend the slipper eliminator bc the car is just to big of a handful to handle. But what I would do is get a Schelle slipper and then get their lockout that way you can use the same spur and all you have to do is switch out between the lockout and the pads and plates.

Also I would deff get the pucks, 3 gear, Schelle aluminum ballstud mount, and the Schelle titanium screw kit. Everything else is really personal preference. Spend your money on a good motor like the Fanton IonV5 Short Stack and a good ESC and batteries.

But if you are getting the Short Stack motor gear it around 69/33 and crank the timing bc they love timing (I run a fan on my B5M so I dont really have to worry about temps to much).

Thanks for that info...I run indoors only at AMSraceway in grand blanc mi. Just getting into racing. I bought a Trnity 17,5 motor already. Waiting for that to come in.

standard d4? or a d4 1s short stack. i feel as if the short stock is way faster than my d3.5

No problem glad I could help and Oh ok cool ya I've heard of it before I race in Ohio. But ok Fantoms are basically well tuned trinitys so good choice there but maybe later on down the road try an IonV5 Short Stack they are insanely fast and amazing quality, IMO the fastest stock motors out there and they're based in MI I believe! Lol

the D3.5. I spoke with trinity and they told me that the d3.5 is the fastest one and I should try that one...so I went with that option.

There's a lot of good racers at AMS. I'm sure if you talked to one of them they would be happy to give you a hand. Dakota, Jeff Abler, Willy Gough and a few others I'm sure would give you a hand.
