thanks all, just want to know if you can really tell a real differnce in grip with the pinks compared to the spec? If the CRC spec tires dont grip at my local track whats the chances that the Pinks will work? 50/50?

We have two sets of guys at our track (Prepped Asphault), Guys that run Pink Rears, Purple Fronts, which work fine, and the tires seem to last a long time. And the other guys run Green Rears, with Black Fronts. Green rears do not last long.

But I learned real quick if the track has any type of dust or dirt on it, no tire will work. The foam picks the dirt up and it takes acouple of laps to clean the tires off again.

We run 10.5BL with 7.4 Lipos. Have about 20 cars that show up every week. 235mm wide with the 905B High Downforce body.

The key to running on asphalt is tires and traction compound. On our somewhat clean tracks here in FL we run pink or double pink rears and double pink fronts. White rears will wear out in one run.

For traction compound the best thing to do is Paragon Ground FX for 15 min on the whole rear and inside 1/3rd of the fronts followed by suntan lotion over the same ares for another 15 min. Just put a layer so its coated and you cant see the foam through it. In 15 min most of the suntan lotion will dissolve and soak into the tire. Before running just wipe the tires off really well and you will be amazed.

Running just Paragon will pick up a lot of dust. The suntan lotions stops that and dramatically improves traction on dusty parking lots.

I have been running pan cars (Pro-10, 1/12 and now WGT) on asphalt since 1988 and no one has ever come up with a better traction compound treatment than paragon and suntan lotion.

I recently experianced the car pulling left on hard acceleration. Checked all the usual things and it looked good. Just found today that mine did the same. Axle clamp pulled away 1/4 inch or so and axle was sliding left and right....and I used that double tighten routine to tighten.

I hadn't checked in a while, so that moves up to the top of "every couple of runs" check list.

I may try this on an outdoor preped asphalt track this summer. I've heard that about suntan lotion before...but will try this summer. Any ideas on which lotions work best / cheap cost? There are a zillion combinations and brands that use oils / sunscreen xxx / aloe vera / ect. to choose from.

Cheap runny SPF 45 stuff like Target store brand works great. Thats what everyone was using at the Worlds in Kissimmee.

Hi Guys

I am new to 1/10 Pan Car racing and will be getting a CRC very soon. I will be running it at 235mm. Are there any tips on setting up the roll out? Maybe there is a guide on this forum that I have not come across?

Thanks - Jim

Thanks. I will be using Lipo 7.4v. As for motor, I will prob start with a stock brushless to get used to the car (I come from IC cars), then if the chassis can handle it I will throw in a 3.5 brushless. My motors will either be Novak or Orion. Are these ok?

Just to let everyone know, I will have my used Gen-X 10 roller(no electronics) with Jaco spec tires (cut to ~57mm) and Sophia body up on the buy/sale boards later today. I'll be selling all of it for $250 shipped. So hit me with a PM if your interested.

Car has never been broken and has only been run indoors on carpet. (again...no electronics)'

Just figured I'd give the folks here on the thread the first shot at it.

You can use Double pink on the fronts. REALLY soft for fronts though. I have also run Magenta (GRP - Real Close) on the rears too.
