Default foams for the tires

How many runs are you getting out a set of foams before they collapse?

Thanks

mrcdub----are you referring to buggy or truck? Or both? I'm not fast enough to put the wheels/tires through the punishment the fast guys can. Sorry. In truck the foams are usually good for several months of club racing if you were to use the same setup each week.

air8 - Thanks, your info has been a lot of help for us. We are trying to figure out how many sets of tires and foams we would need to bring with us.

I know some of the travel team guys for Losi, they will run stock foams, And/or bomb1 etc... a little stiffer foam, depends on how they set their cars/trucks up, I know they mount up a pair or two a day it seems I will run mine for a month or so club racing, and mount new ones for qualifying and the main. I don't take the chance of the foam breaking down in the middle of a main. I'm guessing if you're going to practice thurs, fri with the same tires, then new ones for the sat and sun. just my .02

also a thought, in stock they seem to last longer, if you got a 3.5 in the buggy and the back tires look like pancakes full throttle around the track, ya might want to bring a few extra foams..hahahah

The reason F-nut can give that advice is that is how his buggy looks...3.5 punched all the time....lol

Nice thing about this event is that it is not a huge tire weekend. The race is always a great event!

Does anybody know what Master's Truck will be running for a brushless motor? Will this class also be a 13.5 motor?
Thanks for any further information

I'm 99% sure it's the 13.5 brushless for Masters.
As soon as I find out 100%, I'll post it.
