My track (TRCR) is very similar to MHOR, only larger. Are you guys still running Grapejuice's setup?

Most of us are but we're going to experiment with BK's Reedy setup.

Justin will be running a Tresrey Durango next week so he'll probably have a different setup than most since its a CF chassis. We'll see

Through the twisty stuff c rating dont bother me a bit but its on the straight that im scred Ill be dusted. I guess I can always experiment. I know theyre gonna be lighter though which is not a bad thing and any packs Ive owned with a lower C rating have always been more reliable.

The dusting is done coming onto and off the straight. Get those lines right and you could be running a 10.5 and nobody would pass you on the straight at LIR. The thing with C ratings is they really only matter in classes like 13.5 etc most anywhere in our area. In a 4wd with a hot motor more punch isn't gonna do you any favors.

Thats what Ive been thinking for days now. A slightly lower C rating if anything must mean more control. Plus the freakin proteks swelled and I needed a new pack anyway. Thanks man! Appreciate it.

Yeah I looked at BK's setup but the Reedy layout was apparently really low grip so I don't know how it would do on a high grip/blue groove like ours. May give it a try and see how it does.

Where can you order Tresrey parts in the US?

Pm Konich, he's about three posts up from yours, as he is the US distributor for Tresray! I just ordered a few things from him and he has a large order coming in next week.

Looks like Konich needs a WordPress account. Tresrey is pointing to a parked domain. http://www.tresrey-usa.com/

Konich - let me know if you need any advice. I've been working on web development software for 12 years (now at Microsoft) and can give you some good tips for getting something up quickly. Happy to help.

If anyone else is looking for a Tresrey parts list, here you go:

The website won't be up and going until the begining of March. We wanted to work with Tresrey Japan on a few items and get orders in to take care of dealers and customers that do not have a dealer in thier area.

I have a company that builds all my websites (www.303cycle.com , www.dunlopq2.com ) so I have plenty of resources to get an easy to use website up and running for Tresrey customers.

The CRITICAL upgrade is the Front inner & outer alu suspension holders and required pivot balls. The stock plastic ones are made of hardened butter.

Everything else is really durable. I upgraded to the CF towers and alu caster blocks, added the full weight set, shock boots, drive shaft boots, and grabbed the F/R spring sets.

That was my feeling too about BK's set-up on my track, so I decided to just stay with my set-up for now instead of switching it all over, almost everything is different. Plus I know my set-up is dialed on my track.

I did go to Garden City a couple weeks ago for a race and it was low traction there and my set-up felt fine.
