yes they are yokomo. I have them on my touring car. Do note that they are for the thicker body posts though, not the ones that came stock on the AE. I forgot the part number though, but do check the parts list for the BD5W. It should be there.

I cut little rectangles out of lexan and servo taped them to the underside of the lipo. They are not as long as the cell slots so when taped to the lipo in the middle, you can slide the lipo forward or rearward for weight adjustment. It looks good and works better. Save your money on some tires.

Do the X-ray corner Chassis (http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...is-Protector-2) protectors fit as well as the Associated ones?

I use the X-Ray parts.
You will have to elongate the holes a bit, but they fit the chassis better than the 12 L4 protectors do.

What's the difference between these Jaco Prism rear tires:

2830 Yellow
2930 Pink

Both shore 30 I believe. http://www.jacoracing.net/prism_1_12.html

Also wondering what everyone runs (jaco tires) on med-high grip carpet.

Thanks,

Ivan

They are a different kind of rubber. If you are running mod you will want to run pink, for everything else yellow is a much better option as it frees the car up and makes it work much better at lower speeds.

Yellow is an exotic compound, and Pink is a natural rubber compound. Although the same shore rating the Yellow tires have more forward traction, Pink tires allow the car to rotate better. Also, there is a tire wear difference between the two. Pink tires wear like IRON, Yellow tires will wear much faster. If you run Yellow tires, be sure to pay close attention to your ride height in the rear throughout the day. When the grip starts to come up, run Pink.

Thank you for the quick responses! Couldn't find that info anywhere in the web.

Interestingly, I had a big regional race over the weekend, where I used the same chassis to run 17.5 boosted and 10.5 boosted where I would just change motors/ESC profile/gearing. Car actually ran better in the faster class. Ran 4 qualies and a main for each class and had NO chunks using older generation jaco purples in front and yellow prisms in rear. only changed ride height once and tires only wore under 2 mm! Only problem was the front seem to gum up a bit and if moving from a standing start, some weird handling issues arose. Otherwise, a fun drive!

Probably too difficult to answer simply but I've never really tried tuning the 12R5 cause the person I got it from had it set up pretty well. May start to try some tuning options. If anyone can give me the coles notes version of tuning options of the 2 different springs (center and front) and the 2 shock oils that would be much appreciated!

Thanks for any help,

Ivan

Found this on the CRC site a while back.

Quote:
Unfortunately, it's not as simple as "softest to hardest". There are different "families" of foam that have different compounds and levels of rubber content.

example - magenta and gray are about the same hardness, but grip and act totally different.

I'll list the tires in soft to hard for each family:

Pink, magenta, purple
white, yellow, gray, black (gray-low is a combination of the 2 foams on the same rim, not another hardness that's between them).

the pink family has more rubber content therefore wears better, but it also heats up and gets sticky throughout the run. this is sometimes good, but sometimes can pick up debris from the track and actually give the feel of losing grip.

the white family wears faster, but doesn't change as much throughout the run.
