I need to pick up an ESC for my X1. Curious on what speedy people like and why? We run 21.5 blinky here, outdoor.

The drag brake performance isn't great with a Justock. You can get by with it but the mid price range ESCs are much better... more tunable

Default Shimizu Tires

Dude,
Just get the Shimizu 571 and 572 tires.They work great here in the Pacific NW (USA). We run on asphalt and the weather is similar to yours this time of year.

The temperature here in Sweden is usually not so high.

Now i have been testing with a indoor Ride tire (F1 ETS RIDE) The grip is not good.


Thanks
Mike

Default CRC Fenix 4041 Gear Diff

Has anyone tried the Felix GEAR diff and what's you're opinion? What diff lube is recommended for rubber tires on asphalt.

Don't run outdoors, but it works great on black carpet. Been running it since last fall. Right now I'm running Lucas Oil Red and Tacky. I've also run spray graphite and 300-500k lube.

why you state to not use it outdoor?

The best "Stress test" we've ever had is a 12 hours endurance race, outdoor of course...
12 hours of continuous use and looks brilliant.

I've some guy in Holland that use our Gear Diff even when racing in the wet...

I think Chuck meant "he" doesn't run it outdoors, as in he only races F1 on carpet. But I may be wrong.

what tires are you guys recommending on black carpet? i've been running P-One tires, while i like how they run, this is the second set and the rears have split on the sidewall.

also where do you guys get your sticker/decal sets from?

The decals and such I think is RCPaint labs. And for tires, the CRC/TCS/Pit are the ones we use, for now.
