I usually run foam until recently....well I am getting ready for our fall classic where there is going to be a rubber tire class. So far so good however I can not find anyone that has an ITF top deck in stock. I have tried it without and using some unusuall set up tricks I finally can get the car to handle ok in the corners but I will bet the boys that have the ITF will have a bit more grip overall.

Anyone know of a supplier that has this part in stock?

If you are not wanting to run the motor on the edge then with 58 mm run 96/40 until you are at 56 mm then switch to 96/41.

Additive times were 20 mins on rear and 5 mins on front (both full width).
Noob question: I assume what you mean by this is you're applying the compound and letting it sit that long before burning off before the run?

I broke a plastic outdrive on a TC5. We want to replace the plastic outdrives with the aluminum outdrives. Is there anything needed other than the aluminum outdrives and the cvd blades?

I am assuming the diff internals will simply swap over to the new outdrives.

Heres the part numbers I am looking at . . .

Does anyone have any sway bar tweak tips? I tried sway bars this weekend and could not get the car right, but everyone else is running them so I know it was something I screwed up. My problem s is that the arms won't lift equally from both sides. I'm running Josh H's IIC setup

make sure the links for the bars are all equal length, and the distance from the collar to the end of the bar is the same length.

I did that but I just found out that the bars are not straight and they are brand new.

I apply the additive, let it sit that long then when the race before mine is 4 mins through, wipe the tires with a cloth, to remove 'wet' additive that is 'standing' on the surface still. Then place on the track and run it - no need to 'burn off' then. Have never liked the idea of burn offs anyway as it loads up the transmission unnecessarily.
