Hey guys,

whats the deal with burning the tires with motor spray?
When do you do it?

Right before you run?

Thanks

burn them then grip them while they are still warm and put them in a bag.


repeat after 2 to 3, 5min runs. Works great.

I like to rub the grip in with a toothbrush. I don't burn mine as often as some other people do.

I will decide when I get there Sunday Morning.

The fees are 25 for 1st 20 for 2nd 15 for the 3rd. I thought you might like that Johny. Just be careful how you flex them.

Actually, possibly--I got an LRP 8.5 at the track last week, I was surprised at how quick it was--but it ws "stuttering". I tried everything, new sensor wire, different sintered rotor, bonded rotor, took motor apart. Then I tried my NOvak 10.5 on the Sphere to make sure it wasn't the esc, the NOvak was smooth as glass--no stutter at all. the 8.5 makes the car pretty much undriveable--it won't rotate smoothly. What do you run in truck, 7.5?
