How did you get 6mm ride height ? I have a X-12 and would really like to do some outside running.

Default having a blast outdoor w 1/12

First of all I buy the Xceed tyres and do not true them at all and run them full size so it starts at 7-8mm ride ht. As the tyres wear down I remove the front bulkhead shims to raise the front and use the eccentric in the rear as needed to keep 5-6mm ride ht. Also noteworthy is that tyre-wear seems pretty minimal! I have the 2014 xray x12 for reference.

Same here... On asphalt you can run with more foam on your wheels than on carpet.

We run Ulti tyres straight out of the packet. Our asphalt track is smooth so 4mm ride height works, but you should be able to get 6mm ride height before they wear too far.
