Because that works best on our track. Interestingly, it didn't work at West London or Snetterton, but then nor did the tyre combination we use here.

BOOMER. We haven't got that far with trying things yet, but yes, it's one of the things I plan to try in the future. The thing is that we find the car extremely well balanced with the same settings front and rear - springs, oil, shock angles, etc.

First off get the RPM front bumper and the lightweight or IRS front diff assembly. That's just to actually drive the car without problems. Parts wise, get some 0 deg. Losi rear hubs.

The usuals, wishbones (arms), steering blocks, caster blocks, spare set of hinge-pins and maybe a pair of hub bearings just in case

i'd say a set of polished hinge pins are a must...the std ones are so weak and bend easily.

for spares, get a pair of front wishbones, pair of rears...set of rear hubs + front steering blocks (came in same packet)....i never broke any castor blocks but get some 4 degree ones to play around with

How much do the IRS pincushions slow down the wear on the IRS spool? I used the spool for one weekend and it showed a bit more wear than i thought it would, and im hoping to use the cushions to alleviate this.

Well I can't comment on the IRS pincushions, but a friend ran the IRS outdrives with the stock bones and wore the outdrives out in less than 3 weeks.

I believe after that he changed to IRS composite dogbones,

Here are a few set-ups nearer down the page, some of them use cs22 tyres but there probably isn't much difference setup wise, if you use cs27s.

Quite a bit....my first spool wore pretty bad in just 2 weeks using the standard AE universal. My second spool I used the IRS big dawg bones w/pin cusions and it has less wear in a summer of racing than my first spool did in 2 weeks.
