Myself, I am thinking of either Mod or 19 Turn.
As far as I know me & Dal are flying up together, I believe Jim Rose is going up and James *might* go.

Thanks,
Paul - that old dude
P2, the purple inserts are softer and thicker than the grey. I use the purple in Sorex 32 but I cut about 5mm out of the circumference to make them tight on the rim and give almost the same air gap as the greys. Grey is what I normally run in 36's all the time. Billy is out of them right now though and the Red inserts seem to be a good alternative. Matt H ran them this weekend and they worked well.

Paul and I tried the black inserts in some older 36s, and they were freakin' stuck. Altough I noticed that the tires were overheating slightly by the end of each run (they should though, being softer and having that, what I think is a pretty good sized airgap).

If you want to see the setup that was on my car in stock this weekend you can go to www.gearchart.com or http://www.gearchart.com/setup/setup...ock%201way.pdf , to go directly to it.

It was a rent-a-ride this weekend. Two different people ran it during the races and both loved it. It was the first time either of them had driven the car and it qualified 3rd, about a second off tq and would have finished 1st or 2nd but the guy driving the main had a couple big crashes including one on the last lap, about 5 feet behind the leader and ended up 5th.

speedxl, your pm mailbox is full so I'll answer your question here.

The car is box stock, except for the carpet shock towers, 1way and gear adapter. It has the stock 2mm chassis. I have not run the p-dub chassis yet. The car had good steering everywhere.

racenut; I think the piston/oil combo should be really clost with the TRF shocks and 3 hole pistons.

You can try going to a softer front sway bar or a longer rear camber link. Both should help with mid corner steering.

I was running the Tamiya shocks with the same weight oil as Mo with the 3 hole pistons. The set up was slightly different but the lap times were pretty much the same as Mo's set up. I feel that Mo's set up will be the way to go since you can't get the parts that I was testing out on my car.
