Hey... when is a good time to use taper pins on front and rear? and what about using evil twins,..... when are evil twins better than tapers? This is for a truck, of course

I don't mean to sound biased, but I have never seen a surface where Evil Twins were better than Taper Pins, and I've been to my fair share of racetracks.

Taper Pins on the front of your truck will smooth out steering, especially entering the corner. I use 8-ribs on tracks with more than a few 180's that require lots of steering, and taper pins on basically any other blue groove track, specifically high speed tracks with long, sweeping corners.

Ok, cool. Thank you. I just got a ton of new tires and have not really experimented with anything, soi i thought i should ask someone who knows what they are doing.


By the way, congrats on your last big win....

If you're racing modified on a very sticky blue groove track and you're traction rolling, then you might need a sway bar.

DerekL - Thanks

Hey Aaron, do you know if I should use a Sway bar or not on a XXX4 at Family hobbies? (Rough, Loamy, tight...) We use IFMAR Studs all around.

I thought you used a swaybar all the time on the XXX4! I would not run one on a 2wd car though.

Casper - The track he's running at his loamy step pin dirt that gets bumpy. To me, I'd think that a swaybar would hurt in that situation.

Can't hurt to try it.

Oh yeah it would. The swaybar was the first thing to get pitched when I had a 4wd on that track. The stock setup isn't anywhere close to what worked out there. I'd have to look at my notes to see what I actually ended up running when it was fast.
