So maybe the problem I'm having is the fronts are building too much grip over the day and as a result the car is loose at the end of the day. Initially I had the white springs on the outer holes with 1000 weight oil and it really did the same thing so yeah maybe the problem is at the front end of the car.

Purple's tend to gain more bite the longer into a heat they go.

I've been racing stock indoor asphalt and haven't had any problems with purples. But, I tried 19T the other day and 3 minutes in the purple's where heating up fast and starting to over steer mid and exit. So what brand black's (crc or parma's)? I'm going to be racing 19T outdoors at the eXpress Paved Championships in June. I'm going up in May for some practice. I'm okay with setup. Was not sure on tires. I have Parma's, CRC's and Jaco 2 stage all flavors.

I've run the CRC high rollers and they seamed to work well. My normal set up for the 19 turn was CRC Black / White on our track.

I'll have to get a couple more sets of crc blacks. I only have one set.

I ran Jaco's wraps for the 1st time at the Carpet wars a couple weeks ago. They work really well. CRC's work the best at our indoor asphalt track. Outdoor I figure pink rears. Front is up in the air. They are talking about spraying the track with VHT.

That sounds alarmingly like a vacation...

Bad donkey--no cookie. Thought you were tied to the CAD until the MX12v2 was finished, so that could only mean...

The last set of tires I used were Jacos...it was really strange...I had to CA the edges of the tire again and some dripped down into the screw holes. I looks like the CA actually melted/softened the plastic in the screw hole because right after that is when I had the screws pull right through the plastic when I tightened them.

Can't wait to see the new version. I want to get a new chassis. But I'm going to wait to see if he is going to be making a new version. The car has been awesome for me. I can't wait for the eXpress Paved Championship Race.
