I run outdoors hardpacked dirt.
we always run a front tire like jconcepts rips. front tire with ribs.

but when the raceline is clean of dust and such, there is a slight upcoming blue groove, what front tire shall I try?

AKA rebar front?
proline scrubs?
proline suburbs front?
JC barcodes ?

Sounds like the screw on the inside of the steering hubs didn't get tightened or came loose when running. Make sure you use locktite on the threads of the inside screw.

I think I found 3 questions.

1) How to get better off power steering with stock springs?
2) What diff oil is recommended for the new gear diff option?
3) What shock oil is recommended for a base setup with stock springs?

But no where did I find traction and surface type.

Supersoft panther bobcat with roja speedkicks. Works every time. Do not like the SS AKA never could get it to work on my track, pushes everytime. I have tried scrubs they work well in that situation too but just like the panther more. If its too loose then I used worn out rips in green.

What spur do people run running a 13.5 motor? I'll definitly have some boost on a big clay track

Ah lol, just ordered the AKA rebars ( soft ), my shop doesnt carry panther tires.

proline scrubs and JC barcodes seems to low profile for me, and from the looks the double side rails on the AKA should provide enough support in cornering.

rear tires I have no problems. always JC for me, either the double dees or the flip-outs or the barcodes.

o jeah gotta love an out door track, grip is never the same

might work for you. The AKAs I got I tried everything, softer springs, more traction compound they still pushed. The JC and panthers just worked.

Here in the Netherlands the tracks can be killing.

Last week I was at the Dutch/Belgium nats, and the track was treated with soiltack.
Grip was awsome, unlikely what you would expect. And that would be low grip dusty blown out.
Controlled tire was the proline caliber m3 or m4. So i was preped for the worse.
But with that soiltack I was on rails but it ate my tires in a few runs on the downside.

Normaly such track without the soiltack is a holeshot or double dee the better tire.

in the morning its damp, cold and soft, in the afternoon its hard as concrete, dry hot and almost blue groove.
And in between when the track is drying up there could be no grip at all. Jumps are covered with carpet to prevent eroding,
but has a complete other grip level then the hardpacked dirt. Tricky :-)

And in 99% the front tire is always a "rib" kinda tire.
Id thought to try something else for the "afternoon high grip" situations.

scrubs or barcodes. track should be able to tell you what tire to run on any given day.

If you can. Disassemble the front end and thread lock with blue not red, the screw that goes into the back of the axle. It sounds like you've got some stripping going on, and unfortunately those parts are still on backorder.

I spoke to the guys at BCE and they are already nearly done with a prototype +8mm chassis for the buggy, likely around $60 or so.

Go post on their facebook page that you are interested, the more people that do will probably motivate them to get it done faster

How many are running the battery all the way forward as opposed to all
the way back.
