i would consider picking another one up.but i couldnt race it there every week.
what tires you using like maybe whites in the back...and i havnt a clue what to use on the front...
i might just have to shop around for a used set-up somewhere.
I was just a couple teeth off with the 1/12 car. I changed from 80/44 to 76/44 and that should do the trick. It was a Novak 17.5 by the way with 4600 EP cells. I'm using Jaco Prism grays in the back and lilacs up front. The handling and grip was perfect, just needed a little more speed and a tighter line on some (many) of my laps. The Trinity motor and new gearing should do the trick as far as speed goes, and track time should cure the other part.

I just sold my CRC Carpet Knife V3.2. There's plenty of good used 1/12 cars out there for cheap. If your home track has or had a 1/12 class, there's probably a bunch of guys who have extra 1/12 cars to sell.

Mario: That reminds me, remember when I said that the Trinity motor felt lighter than the Novak? I weighed them and Trinity is in fact lighter by 3.5 grams. That's good, cause the 12R5 was overweight by about 10 grams. I also trimmed the body posts and the body a little bit more, so that should get me closer too.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, then you have an electrical problem.

Hey Alex,
I'm running Jaco Prism Grays in the rear and Lilacs up front. I tried Pink rears and purple fronts, but the car had a slight 4-wheel drift to it, so I stepped back to the Gray/Lilac combo and it had good overall grip.

With a Trinity Duo at 10* timing, I was rolling out at 82mm, but was running a little on the cool side, so I'm going to try 85mm on Sunday (if we have the same track layout or a similar one with a full length straight away)

I'm curious. What rollout are you running in your 13.5 Foam Touring Car?
