Pretty sure he means that the tires will lift up off the setup board after you raise the chassis 3mm above ride height.

I normally use 5mm ride height, so technically the suspension would top out at 8mms with 3mms of droop.

Hey Paul, I know you dont normally run 17.5 class but I was wandering if you were thinking about joining us on the east coast on the 21st for the Sweep Carpet Challenge at a newer track called Middle River Hobbies, same size as The Gate. it'd be great to have a big name such as yourself there for our first big race by the way, congrats on the new 12th scale tire deal

Hey paul, I'm looking for a battery that has a higher C rating, but the mah doesn't need too high (it's going in a mini cooper with a silver can). I'm basicly trying to keep the weight down, but have have some punch as well. It will have to be a 2S battery. Thanks for any help.

Hi Paul,

I see lots of setups are starting to close the spring split between the front and rear, what do you think the reason for this is? Is it because of the weight of the lipo? Just curious what you think about it and have you tried it? Pros and cons?

Hi, Thanks. i would love to come but it is simply too close to the snowbirds and the winternats, I will be working hard to prep my cars for those races. but let me know about other races. I would love to get out to the east coast for some racing again. Thanks!

Hi, Thunderpower offers a 65c 3300 pack. It will be much lighter than that of the 5300 and that will definately help in a mini as you said.
hope that is what you are looking for. Thanks!

Hi. I have tried it on US tracks and not had a lot of success. I would con-sitter the use of a 2.8F spring if i am running the 2hole front arms(outside), and i would also con-sitter using a 2.8 rear spring if i were using the 2hole arms in the rear(inner hole). so with that combination of suspension arms (inside hole rear, outside hole front) i could see 2.8 springs all the way around performing well for me.
But it really would not surprise me if Alex comes to the snowbirds with 2.6s all around with stock arms and kicks my butt. lol

Hi. As far as i know the novak motor temp sensor only works with the novak speedo. the Lrp motor temp sensor will work with Nosram, Lrp, Gm and possibly others. The Thunderpower, Trinity, Reedy etc will not have the feature of doing that with any speedo.

Thanks.

Hey Paul,

I see Gravity tires for 12th are available at Nexus. Could you post some info on approximate shore ratings and rubber family?

And are there additional compounds/rubber types in the works?

Thanks in advance!

All I can say is the guys around here have gone considerably faster on the G12's in both stock and mod.

Hi Mike, I am kinda taking things as they come with Gravity.
For now i am offering the soft and med compound. If i had to compair them i would say they are 30,32 shore. but I don't like using the shore rating for a tire because once anyone's rubber is mounted on a wheel and trued to packaging size it is no longer a 30-32. more like a 38--42. (less rubber = stiffer durometer reading), so i kinda feel it is not accurate. but pink and magenta or 30, 32 will get you pretty close to soft and medium with the G12's.
The two compounds available i feel are the most versatile by far for stock and mod.

Thanks!
