What brand yellow? Here is my issue, I have only ran 12th scale a little bit with a CRC car, but I know there are better options out there. I have been researching other kits for awhile and talked to somebody about this car who said this is the best thing out there. BUT, where I race only has CRC tires or Trinity tires. I really don't want to order a ton of tires I don't need if I can help it.

A lot of the team guys are running BSRs... which are essentially the same as the CRCs, given that BSR mounts the foam for CRC.

Adam,

I'm using CRC tires. For stock, I usually run black fronts and grey/low rears. With a new layout, I'll run the yellow rears until a nice solid groove forms then back to gray/low rears.

Guess that info would help huh? 17.5 blinky, and usually run at the gate. Aside from one track I may go to, every place has good traction.

With the old sub floor I ran BSR magenta front/BSR pink rears (softer than crc pink) as my car wasn't soft enough to handle the constant ripple in the track. This is the usual combo for 13.5 but was dialed in 17.5.

Who knows what the new sub floor will bring. I usually roll with pink/magenta or black/grey-white in 17.5.

The new "Worlds" foam A35 from here https://www.facebook.com/ProOneRc works really well in stock with Black fronts.

Where do you buy this car in US? I looked on Amainhobbies and they only have the TC.

The rear pod looks really light.

TQ racing showed it. But RC Market in Hong Kong has the best price. Of course shipping takes longer, but I got the kit, extra parts, all tuning springs for what the kit sells here.
