Well sold my Rev8 a few months ago and regretted it ever since. So I got another one ordered. Live and learn I guess. New carpet track coming soon. Any suggestions on tire combo on new track? As stated below me, I may be dumb but I'm not stupid! I know what car to go back to at least.

What class are you going to run? For 17.5 on new carpet, I'd start with blue fronts & green rears

Blues all around to start with some green rears and double blue fronts to try if needed.

Happy to hear the rug will be returning to Stockton. I just might have to make a trip up there since I have family in the area. Let us know what the schedule will be.

First scheduled race is Feb 7th. Tire sauce to be determined yet. Have a feeling its going to be pretty good turn out. Lots of pan car guys been wanting a rug for the last few years. I know I have. I don't even want to run sedan. Ive been thinking on what to sell so I can get a WGT again too. I will just wait and see how this PANS out.

Unfair advantage this chassis is.

Kave - My set-up here at the Champs in Mod was similar:

.018" Front Springs
Yellow Kyosho 15k grease on the kingpins
.5mm behind the lower arm (widen the front - no axle shims)
.5 camber
4 degrees castor
40mm Ulti - JH front tires
3.4mm ride height


35wt Losi in HB Shock
AE Blue center spring - top plate has additional .5mm spacer under standard pivot ball

Roll center lowered to only .5mm shim (no 1.5mm cone washer)
.022" Side springs
Green Spooge in the tubes
171.5mm rear width
41mm Ulti - XS rear tires
3.6mm ride height

Protoform AMR-12 body mounted centered in the front wheels
D4 3.5 with timing on the motor @ 20 degrees - 25/94

I'll work on posting pics and set-up sheets here and on my FB ASAP.

The 15k Kyosho was something I always ran on my cars and I switched to it at the race for the first time on the SM car. If you hit a kingpin hard/fast the Green Spooge tends to sheer and not give much "hard bump" dampening. The Kyosho is a little lighter but still gives good dampening in this situation. For bumpier tracks like this, it seemed to help out a bit but in most cases, the Green Spooge works really well.

Any other questions, let me know. I'll try to be more active on here.
Do you have a part number and where to find the HB shock?

This is the upgrade, but it is currently out of stock.

Good luck finding an HB shock! Save yourself the trouble and get a Team Prime shock. Also, for aluminum fasteners, just go to the fastener express site and get what you need

What is the appeal to a HB or prime shock over the stock silva shock?
