In fact the tires I had on the front that were supposed to be close to a magenta were just to aggressive and Cyrul more or less confirmed that. Teru hooked me up with a less aggressive front and it was dialed. Like really dialed, as in a pleasure to drive.

JFT stuff is different. I want to say it was like a 32 "green like" rear with some kind of random prototype rubber that said 40 on it for the front. That's the problem with companys testing. What the heck is that stuff?!?! The rears I got weren't even trued. was a rough cut donut on a rim. "Here, try these"... okeedokee.

I'm normally a pink rear kinda fan. I was pretty happy with all the choices. in fact, in mod, I was astounded, truly astounded at the bite I got from the BSR rears. I flogged that thing like I didn't have a conscience. Never once got loose or "assy". it kind of surprised me, if I'm honest. Maybe my setup skills are amazing?! ...lol...

No excuse. You make the inboard connection wire shorter so that it doesn't reach.

I'll give finger nail polish a shot. Sharpie wasn't consistent enough so I removed it. I wonder if it's possible to rit dye the entire transponder and wires?

The only thing I find with nail polish. If using any colour other than Black you first must paint it white. Otherwise the colours will not show properly

I use my wifes old stuff all the time. Works good as well for carbon chassis edges

The MyLaps transponders can be dyed, but the wires can not.

Won´t that make the wires really hard when it hardens?
