side view



a 4wd losi car was at the same track and he was using inside jobs all around.. here is the video just look at the few clips where he cant get control

my video

he then later switched to holeshots in the REAR.. and noticed a HUGE difference .. more controllable

our track is hard packed aswell.. this was a fresh layout only a day old.. but he didnt make the switch until 3 days after this video and he was still havgin troubles with the inside jobs in rear.. that is why he switched to the holeshots..


cool thanks thats some knowledge im glad to have now

good work on the tires they look cool

Yea, I race at SoCal.

When ever people run 4wd there, they always use M3 Holeshots. Cavalieri, Numan, etc.

Joe IS one of the "pro guys." hehe. But he's also pretty helpful, especially if you're asking about a Team Orion or Peak Performance motor.

Thanks for the props!

Anytime you are at SoCal, all the Pro Drivers that pit in the back are all willing to help people out.

Red and Silver compound tires work better on different track surfaces. Tracks like Hot Rod and SRS that blue groove, Reds work the best on the rear and Silvers work best on the front. The Reds give you allot of traction and the Silvers help smooth out the steering. Tracks like Competition Hobbies we ran Silver tires front and rear with slicks.

Hope this helps,
JP

Thanks!
i also have a bj4we and race on a hard packed red clay outdoor track as well. i have found that holeshots seem to work the best. i use m3's rear most of the time. if i need more steering, i'll use an m3 holeshot in the front.....for less steering, i'll use a losi blockhead in silver (they never wear-out).

if the track grooves......red tapers....and depending on steering, either a red or silver taper in the front.

the basic rule of thumb is.........pro-line when it's wet.....losi when it's dry.

Hey Guys,

I appreciate all of your input and I will try them out today and it also seems that this was a good topic since others had questions as well...

Kevin,
No, I have never raced at Pit Stop before and I am planning on running the off-road track in Gloucester VA called R/C Pro.

Thanks, Mike
