I used purples in front & blues in rear. But I think I might try yellows in front & purples in rear. If our club starts to race this season...

Is anyone else listening using these high spring rate Trinity Congos for their carpet setups?

Thanks.
That is too high of a spring rate for rubber tires.

James,

So the Congos are applicable to foam tires?

It's Ozite I believe. Most popular are Sorex 28R/24R, then Pit Shimizu 27R/22R, then TakeOff CS27/CS22. Pits have been hard to find though but work pretty good next to the Sorex tires.

Our indoor carpet track only allows TQ Max Orange traction compound so that is all we can use. Otherwise I would be using paragon.

Yep with a stock motor...So you can have at me...

Trying to identify another fast stock motor to use. My really fast Monster ended up as junk on its last comm cut. Got some reasonable torque Monsters for TC Stock; but, want RPMs for 1/12 stock.

Will be at Stockton Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun.
