Default It's on rails now.

The steering rack fix and taking the time to shim/adjust it perfectly made the car feel much better. I also changed to the inside steering hole and used the thickest blk plastic washer for bump steer. It was like I was a vet driver and it just keeps getting better.

I'm not sure what else I could do to make it better. I may try a black rear sway bar. What does it do to change the wing forwards or back? I'm running the Mazda 6 on a tight, smooth, med bite, ozite carpet track.

Default Which foam tire brand...

the team orion ones aren't exactly strong, but they are flimsy so they tend to bend instead of crack.....ellegi wheels are very strong, ive given ellegi wheels loads of abuse and i haven't got any cracks in mine so far...i can't comment on jaco (well i can from 12th, but they are brittle) and i can't comment on TRC because ive never used them.

bigkat, ill check out that setup...cheers

I just started using speed mind and they seem really durable and have great traction. As for jacos most of the guys at my track including me stoped using them cause we were cracking them left and right. TRC also seem like they have strong rims,havent seen anyone crack one yet.

The new BSR tires are nice. They fixed the glue so your tires actually stay on the wheel. Can't say anything bad about them.

Not sure anyone has noticed that TRC wheels are now Black Mesh BBS looking. We got some in and were Huh.

RCknight. If you actualy think that Omaha Track is tight. You have never been to fastlane in KC. Quite a bit smaller then Omaha.

I give up with Jaco's...loose sidewalls here and there and craked the rims occasionally. I'm awaiting some parma tires and gonna give them a try. They seem really nice. I also heard BSR tires are good. TRC's color suck but they wont crack, they're way too flexable.
