Dan is very knowledgeable when it comes to these cars! I was his secret admire when I was running my Genetic. Now that I switched to Atomic I will never look back!

What are the recommended tyres for these cars, on Tarmac.

Too many Brands & Spec's , I really dont know where to start.
Should I get the same compound front & rear, or softer of the rear to help stop spin outs??
I took a stab in the dark & I bought some Ride, It will at least get me up & running for now.

Any tyres to avoid ??
Any that are good in general ??

Damn, I was hoping my secret admire would be a young woman... Hahaha

Should have stuck with the Genetic so I would have at least a chance to win with my VM2. LOL


1101- I like Solaris mini tires the best. Get hard compound, it won't let you down. I currently have limited testing with the soft compound but so far, I don't see it as having any advantage even in cold and hot weather testing.

Team Powers mini tires are not too bad either. I hear mixed reviews from Swift mini tires. The one set I tried though, I was not impressed.

Get same compound front/rear and tune your suspension for more front or rear grip.

These do not come up for sale that often! Specially the new Lipo version! Good luck! Really, just order the kit and a set of sway bars and you are good to go!

Egrracing has good prices and they still might have free shipping for over $100.

Default xray diffs

Hi guys.
Im assembling a Lipo version kit now.
What xray diffs fit the lipo version, t2 06/07 or t2 08/09,T3 ??

Whats up with the CV's, are they any good or do I need stronger CV's , perhaps from a different car??
Im also going to get some spare belts, do I just get the cheaper or more expensive belts ??

Anything else I need to upgrade while Im at it??
Cheers

Stick with the stock gear diff it works fine. Just use everything that is supplied with the kit except maybe the ball cups they tend to pop off easy. I set mine up as the stock set up and it works great! Sway bars are good to get for it and maybe the upgraded belts and thats it. Stock CV's are also fine!

I have some spare Xray diffs spools & oneways( I have a Xray), thats why I waned to know what version xray diff fits.
I was thinking about using a diff in the front instead of the spool, if I have one that fits OK.
What weight diff oil are you using??

T2 : 006 & 008 diffs are different spacing.
The Atomic/spec-r gear diff seems to be 2008/9 compatible ?? or just a mistake on the website?
http://www.egrracing.com/shop/index....oducts_id=3774
I'm wondering if they made the new lipo version compatible with the newer 08 Xray diffs, so they could use Spec-R gear diff in the Kit ?


What tyres do you use on the mini 4WD's outdoor in Aus Tony??
Would probably be a similar track surface to NZ

Cheers
