I'll bring one of my F1s with me tomorrow to see how it does on the TCS tires.

Can we switch VTA weight to 1378? There isn't enough room on my car to add 172 grams. Thanks!

I just stacked another body on top of the other and put it in the oven for a few min. Now I have 1 super thick and heavy body now.

I made a deck lid spoiler out of lead once. Worked like a charm.

I think I have this sorted out. I found one one local. It is orange so I will probably just paint it up.

I made a lead chassis plate. Lowered the CG A LOT, but couldn't keep it from getting tweaked.

Default F1

We just had a GREAT Tuning Haus Party at The Gate in Cleveland, and for F1 we ran 21.5 motor, speedo in the blinky mode wit no boost, Tamiya 1031 and Tamiya 1032 TCS Fronts/Rears as a spec tire with the inserts that come with the tires. These are the same rules that we will use at the Halloween Classic, they are simple and easy to tech!!!! The tires are easy to get and THEY WORK!!!!!

The thing with the TCS tires for me is that on a high bite track I traction rolled and had to go to kit tires. So what's the trick to not traction roll with the TCS tires
