Yup!!! The pain and effort isn't worth it to me either. Pre-Mounted PMTs are the way to go. They are damn ugly wheels but the tire traction is great. Sweeps are too bad either and those wheels are a little prettier if that's what you really want. IGT has a great selection on Sweeps. As for the PMTs, FG Supply or do a search on E-Bay. Good Luck!

Thanks for the link to the tire warmers did not know there was a set of tire warmers large enough to wrap around these gt tires.

Have used Paragon in the past but it gives me a wicked head ache. Was interested if any have used the citrus based traction compounds with success (SXT, JACK, etc). Currently I use niftech but once it wears off the traction drops off significantly.

Do you have an online site you purchase black molly lube from did an online search and there was a tonne of different products listed.

I'm liking my 55 premounted sweeps. I just wanted a tire that would last a long time. I'm just bashing too.

Front cva drive lost a cross pin today and I'm not finding any kind of rebuild kit... all I really need is a pin. I'm hoping one of you guys will tell me I'm wrong and that I don't have to buy a whole new CVA set! If so, a part number would be awesome. Much appreciated!

Capt,

On the tire warmers. They are a bit too small to wrap around the entire tire. They are so economical that I ordered 4 sets. One wrap is a couple inches short of doing a whole circumference coverage. I roadrace so I need em for all four tires.

I've been using Losi Hi-Pressure Black Grease #LOSA99203. It comes in a convenient 8cc clear tube. We call it "Black Death" because it's pretty messy and spreads like "The Blob". It'll make your rear diff supper smooth and free.

Time to get the calipers out and go to your LHS. I've spent hours searching for certain hardened pins at times. Piano/music wire might be an option if it's the correct diameter. I always check those pins and make sure they are loctited. Good luck!

Yeah this pin actually cracked in half and then ripped a gash through one of the front axle carriers... sweet!

They are available all steel also. Might be more durable.

Anyone know what the internal drive ratio of this car is (diff gear reduction)? I am curious what the overall final drive ratio is.
