Thank you for the question.

I was asking what tire also?

Are comm. drops important, or a waste of time? Are all drops the same?

Hey Gabe
What do you think of Schumacher cars, I have a CAT 3000
and want to race it but I cant find parts. I also have a xxx-4 but am tired of everybody racing the same thing. What would you do?
Saw you at the 97 worlds so I thought you might know a few things about this stuff. I am fast but havent raced in along time. I dont want to get laughed at for showing up with a Shumacher car.

Hi Gabe,
I have several questions on tires. I race 2w stock and 4w mod offroad.

What is the best way to sand down front tires, I hear dremel (all I did was gouge the hell out of them), belt sander, drill with old front axle, what works for you?

After gluing tires ( I am very careful and patient) I don't seam to get the results I want. I am placing the foam in as even as possible, but, the tires seam to not be perfectly round when I am done. They are pretty wobbly (circumfrence) and I am searching for steering and think this is having an effect. Is this something I should address or forget about?

Also after glueing (never check a new wheel) I notice that all of the wheels are bent which makes it hard to set camber correctly (one way it's @ -1 degree, turn the wheel 180 and it is @ zero). Should this be fixed or not worry about?

Do you suggest adding a couple of holes in the wheels so the tires can move more air?

Do you balance front and rear tires or is this a waste of time.

Thanks for you help.
Nick

Default Thanks Jbmer

I Dont think that this car lacks performance qualities. I think that I could spank everyone with it. I bought it because I wanted to be on my own as far as setups go because I am tired of everyones input. I think I figure things out on my own the best. Thanks for the info on parts. I am sure nobody laughs at your cat. Any setup sugestions for medium bite small track? Thanks for your reply talk back soon let me know how things are going .

Man the first time I ever saw Gabe was in 1996 at the april fools classic in salt lake city (or just outside of it). Gabe was running associated then. I didn't even know who this dude was then but he would go out to the parking lot and run and jump up and down. It was one of the pimpest things i've ever seen. Since then I've been a fan. Good to see your still around Gabe!
