But then people tell me that the GT4 still runs really well at places like Rev and CP. I tried the front and rear solids on my car and it was fun but it was hard on the tires. They didn't last very long. I just got a one-way for mine so I'm gonna try the one-way/solid rear axle thing at Revelations soon. Maybe this weekend.
Francis and I and some of the other guys are going to be at
Rev tomorrow. Hopefully you can make it out. I will bring the Yoke
too so we may run together. I believe Francis is going to start
breaking in his new GT4 as well.
I have always enjoyed having the rear solid on than the diff (for Rev) because the car exists the corner faster and the car seems to act more like the 1/8th scale which where I really have fun running. You should not have that same trouble on Tire Wear because the track has been treated with some kind of rubber paint which dramtically increased the Bite/Traction and more importantly made the tire wear in an all time low.
As a matter of fact, my 1/8th scale consumed less than 0.5 mm during one of the 5 minute qualifer and that's with driving the car pretty hard. It used to be that tire wear normally was about 1.0 mm (more or less) every five minutes..
I frankly have not driven the sedan under these conditions yet but I would imagine it has likewise improved..
We will be at CP next week for the next Second Sunday Race so hope you can join us there too..
See you at the track!
