Very well done Paul.

you really went above and beyond more then any race ive ever attended.
A raffle where everyone wins? Lunch for all? Best looking trophy's I've seen and auctioning your products for charity? Man the race was first class all the way. Even with electronic problems all day sunday I still went home feeling like a winner plus I won the Ti Screw kit on the raffle so that helped =)
I also want to say Ive made an order through your website before and your products are great and I have to say your packaging is awesome. I really look at the little things like that and I was very impressed how everything came.
Im going to go on your site today and order a few thing because I was caught up in all my problems sunday to buy some stuff I wanted like the body height tuners and to try out your tires on my track plus your G-Hats look pretty sweet lol
I was just wondering which tires compound should I try for medium grip asphalt? seems like a lot of people were using the carpet tires for the race?
Thanks again for such an awesome race. I don't think ill ever attend a better race then yours. wish you and your company much success!
I must say again sorry for the delay in response. Thanks for all your super positive comments! It was a pleasure for me and a big step as it was the first "Gravity" race. If you still have questions please let me know!

Question on setup vs the Gspec tires on carpet.
T4 14 feels ok but slightly pushy for first 5ish laps , then gets good for next 10 laps ,then last 15ish laps its extremely loose.
Ive softened the springs up from my sweep norm, raised the inner pins all around .5 added toe to rear , lengthened rear camberlinks and added center post o and also removed rear droop ...
quick set up info;
front , 2.3-2.6p /300 oil
rear ,2.3-2.6p /350 oil
[°] .5 all around f&r
mid camber link f&r
4°caster & 0° camber front and very little up travel(1.5mm up travel)
rear 2° camber and (1.5mm up travel)
tires have 3 runs on them and look like they been ran outdoors for a day already. Btw this is at thunder rc in nash high bite track
Hi! here is something that i am now including with the tires, much of this should help you i hope
. Also i have had good success with not cleaning the tires after the run, just saucing over the top takes away a bit of the edge also. Thanks!
CARPET RUBER TIRE TUNING TIPS (by Paul Lemieux) PAUL.LEMIEUX3@GMAIL.COM
Additive: Much of the time it is not necessary to apply full additive to the front tires, only applying additive to the inner half or none of the front tire will increase stability. “Liquid Gravity LGC” is recommended in most cases for maximum stability.
Glue: Gluing the outer sidewall of the front tire is not necessary but recommended in many cases, it will provide more high speed stability to your car. When gluing it is recommended to apply a moderate coat of CA glue from the glue seam up the sidewall of the tire. Gluing approximately 1mm up beyond the markings on the sidewall is recommended.
Chassis: These tips are likely to make your vehicle more stable and consistent for carpet racing. Not order of importance.
WEIGHT: (weight more forward on chassis or longer rear wheelbase will add nose weight and is also likely to add stability).
REAR WING: (Moving rear wing back on the body will provide more high speed stability).
FRONT CAMBER: (Especially after gluing the front sidewall of the tire, less front camber will increase stability).
STEERING THROW: (In many cases maximum overall steering throw is not necessary).
ACKERMAN: (More Ackerman will provide a car that is more stable center of the corner and also while exiting on throttle).
Thanks for reading! GRAVITY RC.
