Thought this chart would be great to put into your 12th info thread

Black - 40 shore: This is a low natural rubber compound. Special tire for insane traction carpet tracks. Does not get gummy like Purple. If you don't have insane traction you car will likely push with these.

Purple - 40 shore: This is a natural rubber compound. Popular front stock tire, carries good corner speed because it's firm. The foam this compound is made from gets more gummy late in a race. The more you run this compound the gummier and stickier it gets. A little more forgiving than some of the other fronts.

Lilac - 37 shore: This is a natural rubber compound. Great front tire for stock carpet or if dbl. pink is too much steering.

Double Pink - 35 shore: This is a natural rubber compound. This is the standard front tire for carpet in all classes. Its is used front and rear for 19T and Mod carpet and front and rear in all classes on asphalt.

Grey - 35 shore: This is a low natural rubber compound. It is just as hard as dbl. pink but it has FAR LESS traction. It is used to free up the rear of stock powered carpet cars for more efficiency and corner speed. This is the old standard rear carpet tire, most stock carpet racers use the softer yellow compound now for more forward grip.

Magenta - 32 shore: This is a natural rubber compound. Its softer than dbl pink so if you need more steering than dbl. pink use these up front. If you need more rear traction than dbl. pink use these in the rear.

Pink - 30 shore: Pink - 30 shore: This is a natural rubber compound. This tire is used in mod 1/12th on carpet and asphalt if the traction is low. If the traction is high it will lock in the rear of the car and make it push.

Yellow - 30 shore: This is a low natural rubber compound. It is the standard rear tire for Stock racing. It is used to free up the rear of stock powered carpet cars for more efficiency and corner speed.

White - 25 shore: This is a low natural rubber compound. It was the standard rear tire for 1/10th on road carpet racing. Its a little softer than yellow.

Here's the link where I got it saying something about orange tires

I think their 30/35 but not sure if their still used

Also there used to be a blue used in rear that is also gone

Any info

Orange - this is a Yellow compound tire with a Grey outer rib.

Not to be confused with the old (90's) Orange tire which was rock hard... it was popular as a partial front tire (Double-Pink-Orange, which had the stiff orange outer rib)

I remember now but was long time ago...

First car I had 12I I used on carpet blue ft's and yellow rear's and it was dialed as far as I knew

And although Lucas Garnu had some pretty awesome looking cars in 85' when I saw R.H. Delta I had to have one then it was greens all around

I think the Assocaited Alluminium is pretty weak, and the pod or the motormount will bend with (hard) crashes.... I really don't like that. I can work with the pod bending, but I dislike the motormount bending. I think it's to weak.
But I really like the rest ofthe complete car, the front end, the dampers, all of it!

Now Markus Mobers has it's update from On Point, and I really really dislike the collor, and dislike the damper tubes. I never had a problem with the Associated side damper. But I can understand that this pod will deffently tweak less easy, and I hope the Aluminium is stronger.

But the Assocaited update still has the weak aluminium pod. But then again it's nice and blue (I know it's not a good point, but I just love the blue) and has the nice side damper. And mabe I could by a Team Tamale Motormount....

What would you choose or advise me.

Regards

Robert Krens
In my experience the AE aluminum is easy to bend. In the same breath so is the CRC and the other's factory aluminum. The Tamale aluminum won't bend. I have been using Larry's stuff since 2004 and haven't seen anything of mine or anyone else's, including c-hubs, bend or break. Not that I haven't tried...

If its good enough for Boeing or Lear to use on their planes it's good enough for me.

Here is RBF's setup for what you requested

Associated RC12R5

And here is where he used the inline chassis but not with inline battery position but regular configuration

Hope that helps
