Agreed.. I feel like the 2.4's are more for a high bite, smooth surface. Just my $0.02 though..

What shock oil/spring setups are guys running with the lightened up mod cars?

Everyone should be telling you that the 2.4's are for more higher grip situations. You're trying to reduce rolling resistance and sidewall flex for quicker reaction times.

My current set of tires are 2.2 gold barcodes with the bead cut off and mounted on 2.4 bullet rims. Not exactly an easy glue job but they've held for the most part. I've had to touch up a few spots. Just wish the 2.4 tire carcass thickness was the same as the 2.2s but they're afraid of losing sales so they're thinned out to get used up quickly. er uh so they break in and perform faster.

I really liked the 2.4's in mod, as they produce more grip overall to me. I really liked them on my rear motor car Outdoors. Indoors, with the mid motor, I like the 2.2's better For 17.5

(I'm also selling a large lot of 2.4's in the classifieds)

Quick question for yall....

Are the slipper assy's the same from the B5/T5M and the SC10.2?

Reason I ask is cuz last year, my daughter burnt out 2 sets of pads during the outdoor season in he SC, as I run it a little more loose to help her keep it pinned down in the rear. I want to get the RPRD vented plates and basket. They look very similar but no one has been able to give me a solid yes or no....

I like the 2.4's higher traction clay they work good and not bad on medium to higher traction small indoor track with a lot of 180's. Mounting up took one set then I was good after that.

Poop... should fit in good. It is a crap box I was looking at the triads as well. I just want something that will take the heat as it did warp one of the plates last year. I was thinking the vents would help keep it cool. OK.

Ill check on the Triad.

make sure you get some red pads. the white pads might be too soft for an sc truck. maybe try 2 red pads and 1 white.

Will it work , maybe but the question is - do the groves in the pucks thrust washers line up well with the larger diff balls? The world may never know.
