Dont even joke around. I have been itching for an excuse to get back in the dirt. It's been about 3 or 4 years since I have really had a chance to get into offroad.....

Hey guys,

Not sure who's racing off road still but I was faster with my Schumacher's than I was my associated/losi.

I'd trade my T4 in in a heartbeat for a Schumacher ride. They really fit my driving style well.

I swapped out my yokomo for the Schumacher cat back in the day and then I was hooked.

Dustin

Tires are something that you kind of have to experiment with yourself. Some work well on some tracks and not too well on others. I've never been to an outdoor track that RP30's didn't work well at. But take them to SoCal and you'll be traction rolling with them. Outdoors, RP30's are a good tire that should work well on most surfaces. CS27's are not the fastest tire, but they work well in a lot of different applications and a wide temp range and decent life. Also, it's really hard to compare one brand to another, i.e. Sorex 36R to an RP36. They're totally different tires so you can't say one is the "RP equivalent" to Sorex.

I think the CS-27's will be softer, and the 22's softer still.

I use the RP-24's from cold/dry up to air temps in the 30's (although at that temp the wear can be a bit much)

I think they are all manufactured by Take Off

The tyres are on the second 'selection box' at the top, the grey one.

Take Off

A few pages ago, you guys were talking about taking the spacers out from underneath the diffs and running flat on the chassis. Any feedback from that experiment?

Most of us did that at the Reedy race. I liked it a lot. It seemed to give the car a lot more corner speed. You'll need to run the high camber link location on the rear shock tower and slot the front tower up 2mm higher than the stock high link location. But it's worth it. It worked really well.

Jon was that with Carpet towers or regular towers? Also was that with the camber mod on the rear if you did use carpet towers?
