Paul good luck @ Worlds!!

A question too...I don't know how much you have tried different inserts in tires, with most races being spec tire. I know Kevin K talks about how you showed him how tires with no inserts work.. Anyway, what do you feel like hard vs. soft inserts do, and the amount of airgap in the tire? What about open cell foam vs. molded? I think I know what this stuff should do, but I may also be a dummy

Default Whats up??

Hey Paul, here is one for you.

I run on one track where the main straight seems to make the car wander a bit. I can run the car with the same setup anywhere else and it tracks straight, no wander. But I get on this track and it seems to drift from one side to the other. Now I'm not talking about a lot, like wall to wall, but enough that it gets annoying. I've always tried to just compensate for it by driving thru it, BUT, if I was going to try to tune this out of the car, what should I initially be looking at? Is this a product of front toe or rear toe? I kind of think its rear toe fighting against each other but I'm just not sure. This is on a carpet track, and I'm pretty sure its not a carpet weave thing, but the floor its on is not really flat.

So, any input?

Thanks
GL

Paul

I will be running my new car in the non boosted 17.5 class on carpet and was wondering what you think I should run?.....

Gear diff vs. spool?
Ball diff vs. Gear diff?

Also what weight of diff lube to use front and rear? Thanks
