I would just run the stock foam that comes with the losi taper pin fronts. It is already over size and works well. 4wd again the stock foams are ok. You can run 3/4 bomb one as well. The bomb ones should give a little more steering.

MS standard switch up front for truck, Soft Switch 2.0 for rear. My personal opinion is that Tapers are faster and feel more consistent.

I have been using Trinity 2 stage (blue/white) foams in all of my rear tires, But Trinity has recently changed the 2 stage foams.

Foams are all the same.... If you can find the black panther foam, that stuff is good as well as the molded stuff.

Panther foam is all over the place. I have a box full of different panther foams. Some wide some tall some hard some really hard. That stuff is a crap shoot.

MS wookies for the front of the truck also work well.

They always match in one package of tires but when you buy tires in a month, who knows what the foam will look like this time! I love the panther rubber though for blue groove!

I will be posting a full schedule on the 20th for the week of the Cactus on the website. It will be posted and there will be a downloadable pdf that you can print as well.

Kyosho Japan Drivers Kametani Takaaki and Akimoto Kohta will be attending this years Cactus Classic. They will be running all three mods.

In Japan, Electric Offroad is very big right now making the Cactus Classic a very important race for the Japanese market. If you miss out on this years Cactus, you are missing out as I have looked back and have not found an entire list of drivers in any class from the a-main at any worlds in attendance at the Cactus. This year we have the entire a-main from 2wd Worlds signed up to race. Last year being a worlds year I thought the lineup was impressive, but I think that this years lineup is even better. Watching the pros in the modified classes is definately going to be fun to watch.

We will be Hohwart and Easton away from both a-mains at the last worlds, I believe that both are attending the Carpet Nationals this year.

Did anyone pay online with Paypal? I am just curious because I did and it says pending and that payment wasn't received yet. Do they have to manually verify this payment?
