As for the others... could you comment on the respective merits of each item ? I see none of them are the transperent kind found in the box. Are the x rings good ?
skip the clear orings they leak! any of the blue are great they help prevent leaks even under exsteam heat cause they do not expand. i use x ring 70 #42215 which requires mineral base oil. 50durometer # 42214 is meant for silicon oil which are popular cause the oil is cheaper and work just as good. i normallly use green slime to prevent any leaks but not with the x rings! 8 packs and still no signs of leaks

Lot of good asphalt setups here for indoors and outdoors.

I recommend Dave Jun's setup for tamiya America track. Only thing I would really do is play with the steering spacer measurement(aka Ackerman), maybe start with the stock setting and reduce the shim thickness if needed.

I use serpent 48p spur - stock spacer works fine - just need to watch the shimming since its thicker

Original tamiya are very bad quality

Thanks! Best Regards.
