I remember reading that TCS Nats teched the black can for more than 1.9 amp draw which they deemed illegal. I guess if you can get a sliver can to draw 3 amps and its spins free with good rpms than its good.

Core Creations The Type As are 60mm diameter and the Super slicks are like 53-54mm.
Core, "thanks man"

So bascilly the Super Slicks are narrower than the "A".

Why would anyone want the narrower tires?

No...the width is the same....it's the overall diameter or the height thats different. The super slick is a smaller tire..so it has a much smaller overall rollout on a mini...not very desirable with a silver can.

Thanks,

The compound is also different.

Super Slicks are much more durable and suited to warm to hot weather. Type A's dont like the heat so much at all...

where can you buy these hop up shocks/dampers and which are the best?

I believe TRF dampers work and are the better ones??

I never throw mine away but I was told to run 3 on those spacers under the piston this is using the plastic shocks. Run 60 wt in the front and 35wt. in the rear. Short yellow in the front and short neon yellow in the back. I don't know if this set-up will work with yours but if you find one that works post it on you website! More info later!
Gotta go!

Max,

Try this set up on your mini I run this at socal and with a few minor adjustments from time to time my car is dialed.

Two hole pistons front and back
Three o rings inside the shock
80 front with white springs
40 rear with blue springs (sometimes red depending on track condition)
Silver sway bar up front
Black in the rear and some times I dont run one depending on track condition
Little bit of toe out for the front
Stock uprights in the rear
HPI X pattern belted with green HPI inserts all the way around (you have to cut them to size naturally)
Sometimes I will run a red insert up front depending again on track conditions

Pretty basic I hope this will help everyone seems to run a different set up but usually it ends up to be stiff/hard up front soft/medium in the rear. It just all depends on your driving style.

PM me if you have any other questions or need parts. By the way are running mid or short chassis.

Thanks,

Brandon,

Most hobby stores should have the shocks, or large online sites like Stormrhobbies, Speedtech or Tower Hobbies.

I have been using the plastic CVA shocks and been happy with them. My car performs as well or even better than my co racers who use the TRF shocks. However I have noticed that they need reoiling more often than the TRF shocks on my touring car.

Let me add to this!
The 60d is a belted tire, like what we run in the touring cars. The Super Slick is not and will / can balloon up
The 60d is the stickiest tire that Tamiya sells
