As an indoor soccer pro, how do you juggle your time between the field and the track lol

Have u ever noticed Jacob blues having this tendency towards the end of their life? I rotate my tires regularly and u would say within the next 3 runs a ring will be all the way around the inside of tire. I have regularly checked my sidewall glue joints also and probably have reglued them all ...
So it would be safe to say that the traction rolling off power (no drag brakes)could be the sudden change in the suspension and side load on tire to cause TR? Paul thank u so much for sharing ur knowledge with us! Have a merry Christmas

No problem at all. I don"t think the issue is the tires, whenever i run Jaco Blues they seem to have a very similar pace and feel from run 2-10 or so. Traction roll is normally in the set up, the tweak of the car, or a bound up suspension pin or something like that.
Happy holidays

Hi. I got and returned your PM. Sorry i couldn't be more help.
In general i suppose i would try narrow, wider should be easier to drive but narrower could give more bite. But I don't think it is that general, results would depends on where it is being widened or narrowed.
And like i said, with F1 i would be lying if i had more advice.

Thanks!

Hi, how big is the track, what motor will you aim to use?.
I started using thunderpower before they had motors BC i think the batterys are second to none. since i was using the batterys i was involved with them bringing the motors to the market, with me testing the motors i was totally comfortible with the with the progress that we made and now in the product. so i see no reason to use anything different.

Thanks

I'm using an Lrp x20 4.5. I'm running at mikes 90x40 I think. Thank you for the detailed answer and now understand your choice fully. Out of curiosity, what oil brand do you use?

Sorry about the delay, i dont know how i forgot about this.

I would go 5,2,0,0,0 geared around 8.2, 20 deg motor timing to start
5 is drag brake, 2 is punch and the timing is all disabled.

yea, but that set up should do in the ball park of 50mph, with rubber tire on that size track you will only get in to trouble trying to go faster than that.
Thanks!
