Default tire sanding

I actually use an integy tire truer I had from my nitro days and then a paddle sand stick. It makes them perfect.


I also do the same after a weekend of racing to pull/scrape all the traction compound off the tire so they are fresh.

Make sure you free up that front arm, it should fall on its own weight.

The sand stick, is that like an emery board? Do you mount it on the tire true itself or just run the tire on it and hand sand it?

Yes, I put it on the truer and turn it on to get the wheel to spin then sand it with the sand paddle. Here's the paddle I use.

All set. Now I just need to paint a body before morning. I'll sleep tomorrow night

It's not something I would submit to the best cleanest electronics thread, but it'll do.

Just try the basic carpet setup. It works very good. I run it with 17.5 and boost on a tight carpet track.

Default Alu drive shafts in front

It would be interesting if anybody runs the alu drive shafts in front.
Since the cost half as much as the steel ones I am thinking about getting them for front multi-diff.
I run 17,5T with power programm on carpet and 6,5T on asphalt.

Do they survice in front or do I have to take the steel ones?
Any experience would be helpful.

From past experience with another car. Aluminum is not good up front. They bend way too easily. It will cost you far more in the long run. I don't think I ever saw any of my friends bend an xray spring steel bone/ecs
