My take on a better case scenario...

Buy the front end shims and rear ride height spacers to get the most out of your expensive tires. The #4262 Precision Front Ride Height Shims and #3381 - Rear Ride Height Spacer Set (All sizes) are what I am talking about. Spend about $25 now to save hundreds down the road.

For WGT, unless you are on a bumpy track, stay under 4.5mm ride height for better handling.

For club racing, I run my WGT spec tires from 56mm down until the foam won't hold enough traction compound to get through a 6-minute run (probably 51.5mm on medium traction carpet). Some locals start at 58mm; but still go down to 51-52mm at the end).

Without the washers under the Front End Plate, you can use the 5mm Molded Ride Height Spacer under the lower arm. I do not know of anyone using the washers at the front end.

if you want to maximize your tires run the 5mm ride height spacers

Hi guys, I got a GenX LE some weeks ago and I finally received my tire truer and my CRC universal adapter...

Could you please tell me which diameter is optimal for Jaco tires? Front and Rear?

I looked in half of this thread but I can not find a clear answer to this simple question...

Thank you very much...

Default tyre sizes

with out a doubt car handles best on tyres 51mm all round , but if you want them to last ,55mm all round and they will last for months.
Its down to funds and performance a happy medium would be start at 53mm.Ride hight as close to 4mm as possible ,any grip roll a smear of foam super glue on the edges help stop that and also helps tyres to last longer without chunking or rolling off wheels

Airwave,

Your use of the word "optimal" would also make me say 51-52mm for most traction conditions; but, I wonder if that is what you are looking for.

Bill

Unfortunately the entire winter season is tough for big races now.

IIC beginning of OCT.
Halloween race @ the Gate end of OCT
Indoor Champs end of Nov
x-mas end of Dec
Snowbirds end of Jan
ROAD Carpet Nats end of March

Really the only month a big race that is well known around the US does not exist would be Feb.

The beginning of Jan may work this is when the Novak race used to be which had a good attendance.

February would be the best choice.

Totally agreed. My bad.

And I already have my airlines tickets to the Birds that didn't get used this past January.

Back to the Gen-X 10's...
