The Yokomo and the Associated one-way's are pretty much the same thing now, both heavy duty. We have sold a lot of them and I have not heard of to many people having problems with them. The first Associated one-way, well that is a different story.

If you can't find them in your country or local area we have them in stock and reasonable shipping charges.

I run the Associtated heavy duty one way and I have never had a problem with them... I have seen a ton of the old ones break, but the new ones are really strong... I have been running this one way for months with no problems at all.

Using a 4 degree will help with initial turn in, while smoothing the effects at the end of the turn. This might lead to pushing out of the corner. If you don't have this problem coming out of the corner, you can also add the F-2 block in the front. This will increase your caster to 6 degrees and let you have much more initial turn in.

I would use the 4 degree caster blocks with the F-0 front block. If you have alot of rear traction you can run the f block in rear and then the 2+2 rear block and get on degree of rear toe in and then you will have alot of steering. On carpet I use the 3+2 block which will now be 2 degrees or rear toe in.

Default Rubber or Foam?

With cost not being a factor, what type of tire (for carpet racing) would you guys recommend a rookie driver start with to gain experience? And why?

Buy a set of rubber tires and have someone help you glue them up. Get some Sorex 28R/24R or Pit 27/24 instead of 24/20 compounds because they will last longer. The lower the number the softer the compound - more traction but more wear. You won't be competitive right away until you get some practice so some rubber tires with good wear like the 28/24 are your best bet. You'll chunk foam tires if you're learning to drive, and you'd need a tire truer also. Not to mention having to check droop and ride height after each run.

Back from the Birds... ALOT of competition! I had a horrible glitch issue through all of my practice runs and my first qualifier, with minor occasional hits during the last two qualifiers. It was really hard to get a clean run! I ran Sportsman 19T with the Epic adjustable 19T motor. I qualified 9th in the B main, a family situation caused me to leave early and had a DNS for the main. The track wasnt too technical, but the amount of grip was amazing... over 10,000 collective laps were run on the first day of controlled practice!! You can imagine the rubber on the carpet. In all my years of racing i have never had to set a car up to get RID of traction!! The track began to deteriorate, and by the first day of qualifying, it was hard on TC and REAL hard on 1/12th scale. By my third qualifier, there were pieces of duct tape on parts of the track where the carpet was worn away!! Mind you, this carpet was installed brand new on Sunday, and worn out in a week! At any rate, the TC3 ran well. I broke only twice during practice, one was a front outdrive, the second was a front arm and hingepin. Not bad for so much fender rubbing there!

Proficar403 was in my main as well, he was two seconds ahead of me, and drove very well all weekend! His TC3 center brace pictured earlier in this thread was sweeeet! Ill see ya at TFB soon!! MikeWebb, it was good to meet you man! I didnt get to watch the mains but i hope you did well! Arvin Nano, good to see you again bro, hope to run with ya again next year! Melvin, all i can say is, thank you for all of your help, it was great to pit/race with you again! Just makes me miss racing with ya all the more... Until next year...

- Dave
