I run a front one with foams, rubber tyres haven't run the car on them yet

It's a bit of a cop out but they can be a quick way to get an abrupt change in handling when sorting the car. Have not tried the rear one yet.

Oritz I have one that has been working very well for me for a medium-bite parking lot track, and with more bite it'd be very very good. PM me if you want it.

Default Midcorner push

Hi,
what to change first if my car is good entering and accelerating out of turns, but pushes in the middle of wide long turns?

ttr: either add more caster or use a thinner sway bar up front (if you're using one at all). its a bit difficult to say not knowing what your set up is but generally the stuff i mentioned are what help the car rotate better around the middle of a corner.

What do you use to tighten the wheelnuts on your cars?

Is there a brand of nut driver that fits the recess in the wheels better than the others? If so, please tell me the brand/part number/other identifying characteristic so I can buy one.

Please Help!
TK5044 - Team Kinwald Pocket Wrenches - 11/32" Nut Driver

It's tapered on the end and is thin walled and works with TC wheels.

Cheers for all the wrench suggestions, it looks like the Eagle one will be in the hobbyshop 1-2 weeks away so I'll be picking it up then.

As far as G+ weights, mine is a shocker.

Used a 200mm Stratus 2.0, foam tyres and moderate sized electronics and it was 1525 grams. I will be lightly spray painting the Alfa shell and seeing how much the poor thing weighs on rubber tyres early next month. Might be as much as 1550gms?(50 over the limit here)
