Aaron - what engine are you running in your Jammin? I know it's Trinity, but which one? Thanks.

Yup! It's really too bad the head is green..because it clashes with my yellow and pink BIG TIME!

But it's got ridiculous bottom end, SCREAMS on top, and gets eight minutes on a tank even with how hard I drive!

Niklas - Hell yeah! Let me know..you'll have to make a trip to San Diego .

I love my Sirio .21's. They've all run great and make ridiculous power.

And 8 minutes on a tank at Hemet is pure nonsense

Thanks. But what about entering or exiting really tight turns (180s)? Is there less push coming out of the turn with less rear toe or more push or no effect on push?

Default Aaron - question about diff oil

I know you run 5-7-2 and like it. It also seems diff oil selection is somewhat dependent on track conditions and layout. I'm running a money race this weekend so here's my question: What diff oil would you use for a highly technical, hard packed rough track with lots of tight turns (180s), no long straight, triples, table tops, doubles, whoop-de-doos, zig zags and angled bumps (both ways). All turns are level (none banked)? Is there anything else that you would change?

Nope! I think my setup is very well balanced and works well everywhere!

Aaron, I know you claim that the Jammin is the best thing to come along so far so can you please post a setup sheet for your Jammin. I'd love to try it! Sounds like your setup is a little different than the ones posted on www.Jamminproducts.com.

Will moving shocks in on shock tower help on rough tracks? Manage to break a rear axle at practice yesterday, anyone else had this to happen?

super informative thread. Thanks to all who have posted. I'm sure I'll get to the front of the pack a lot faster knowing all I have read.

The only things I haven't seen comments on are tires. What have you guys tried? What do you like?

There have been complaints of the E clips coming off. If you have this problem then I guess it's a must. However, I never lost an E clip. I bought the hinge pins later anyway so I wouldn't have to worry about it. One thing, the pins that go through the rear hubs can easily be over tightened binding the hubs slightly impeding free movement of the rear suspension. Just back them off a little if you have this problem.

I just came back rom the Nurnberg show, met Andrea and Adrien of Sirio of course (we're distribution Sirio also). The latest version of the KII looks even more promising then last years KII version. Small things, but one big one - the new turbo chamber (included) together with Sirios new buggy plugs (conical/turbo)! Still snow here so no testing...

AW - I will let you know when I arrive in Aaron town.
