Nah, I live about 25 miles outside of Chicago. However, I've been to both of the ROAR Carpet Nationals held there. Really nice facility, they just need to allow Paragon WITH 3 oz. of Vanilla Extract to kill the smell. My understanding is that CRC actually Recomends Paragon for their carpet!

Ohhh, nice!

They dont allow paragon? Or is hat just for 12th scale??? Because Ruben was telling me that jack the gripper and paragon are the only tire traction compounds allowed, but paragon is the best to use.... For TC this was though

I know at Stockton a year and a half or so ago the only sauce allowed was TQ Orange, I'd be surprized if they allowed Paragon now, didnt seem like Ruben wanted to deal with the odor.

Where is the prime spit to connect the servo saver ball studs? im assume the middle position, I take it i have to drill them out.. My servo is at the angled position, so in front or behind the servo saver?

use the middle hole and run them off the front of the servo saver. You can open the holes in the servo saver with a body reamer. I just open the slightly so the thread will catch

We kept with Jack the season after the carpet nats but for some reason the rubber TC tires and the Jack put down a weird coating on the carpet so the 12th scales would only have traction for a few minutes then be very very loose. Switching to Paragon fixed that, but at a slight cost of smelly-ness.

Wow, we had the exact same situation at our track a couple years ago. How old is the carpet? Maybe it was from the same batch...

Hey guys,

I finished the rear axle shims today. They are axle shims that are designed for use with the Jaco Prism wheels. They will set your rear axle at 172mm and with 1 on each side will center your axle also so there is now headaches of achieving center or 172mm. They are now available.

We are meeting with our computer guy to set up the online store tommorow. We will get it up and running ASAP. We will have pics of all of the parts and online purchasing.
