Didn't get Baker's car, no. Although he is pretty much running the same car he has been running for a long time now (as was Blackstock).

I missed Kinwald's too. He was testing the same parts as Hodge and Lemieux, along with his little ESC-fan combo, and the Trinity Peugot body. Not much else I can think of on it of note.

I believe most people were running 28mm. The guys running TRC typically cut the wheels down by about 2mm. If I'm wrong, someone correct me; I usually run all Jacos.

do they cut the whole wheels down by using a radial saw, to get a straigt line? Thought about doing that once, but didn't have the guts to maybe mess up a good tire i could sell.

You take 30mm foams and put them on your truer then just cut off 2mm with a hobby knife. Its pretty easy to do. Now that Trinity has come out with 28mm tires it doesn't really matter anymore.

so i take it all the a-main guys were running 28mm foams.
Do you also run 28mm foams on your TC's when you run on ashphalt or do you run 26mm on ashphalt. or maybe 30mm foams on ashphalt.

You dont run foam on asphalt electic sedans. You run 24mm rubber tires. Foam on asphalt are for nitro sedans only.

I think what he's saying is most of the time, class rules don't allow foams in elecrtic sedan. Not that it's impossible to run them. I know of some clubs that allow them but many don't and I've never heard of a sanctiond race that will allow foams on electrics.

Yes, foams work on asphalt but they are not legal for any form of santioned racing (ROAR, IFMAR, NORCCA).

One of the main reasons 1/10th pan cars died was the hassle of racing foams on asphalt. Constant changes on ride height and gear ratios due to wear and poor traction on average parking lot tracks made them expensive.

In the R/C industry most sedan manufacturers actively try to prevent sedans from going to foam tires. We all remember how bad it was to run foams and fear the sedans will go the way of pan cars if it not kept in check.
