Prevent that from happening? Ummm no, that's precisely what is supposed to happen lol

Tires do not wear uniformly. Where at on the tire depends on your camber and type of track. My local track usually has more right hand turns and high speed ones at that, so our left rears always wear faster.

If your tires are wearing right down the middle, that's called business as usual haha.

I have noticed the CC foams wear in a wider pattern than OC foams. For me because of this, I get a little longer life out of the rears. I also noticed the same thing on my fronts as you said, we have a lot of lefts and my right front has way more wear than the front right.

Not directed at or meant in any offensive way... but don't believe everything you hear or read in RC.

Oh. Wait. It's practically just kit setup with some different oil and springs

Good job MS on holding it down up there. However this looks like every other indoor clay setup I've come across. Less tweaks here actually.

Well IMO, Jason was not wrong per say, but maybe not very clear. If your tired balloon up when you get on power coming out of the corners, the thin middle section will wear faster with open cells. I have less issues ballooning with closed cells. "If" you over revving and ballooning the tires, the middle will wear quickly. I assume Jason was referring to something along those lines. I have seen guys balloon the inside tires coming around a 180. I mean, their tires are like 4in tall at the center. It is very very visible to anyone. This sort of thing will wear out the centers faster, because the main reason that tire is that big is a combo of lack of traction (weight is being transferred off the tire) and too much trigger or too sudden trigger pull. But, you can also run the centers out fast with a hot motor that is quickly getting up to rpm. The higher your rpm, the more the center of the tire is the only thing making contact with the track. And with less rubber on the track, you also increase your chance of slipping/losing traction.

This is the way it should be.

The etched 0 faces the shock. This means rear motor it is forward and mid motor it's back.
3mm of ball-stud spacing makes the high position. 1mm is the low. The kit hub has 5 link length options, with the aluminum hub you no longer have the longest/ outer ball position. Be careful about the thread length ball stud you use, if it's too long it will crush the bearing in a couple of positions. 6mm thread is recommended with 3mm spacing.
Sean is this going on the AE website -- perhaps on the page for the hubs?

Adam you arent wrong by any means......but being over motored can definitely make things worse.....and cause premature tire wear.....which is why guys like Maifield go down to 8.5's for indoor when traction is lower......when he normally goes 7.5 everywhere else.
