Yeah, the only other thing you will need are some 5/40 set screws. This will make it too wide just so you know.

Haha I knew someone would say something about all the RX8 questions, but I figured a lot of you guys are running them so you would know...and this thread seems to get the quickest replies.

Thanks again for the help!

I'm looking at putting together an indoor carpet setup for a tight track. A lot of it seems to come down to tire choice and diff setup. Any suggestions for either? Someone on the track forum suggested Soft Calibers, but also said some people are running stock slash tires. Those two tires seem worlds apart.

I might also be in the market for roller or turnkey setup. PM me if you have something, please do not post replies in this thread.

By to wide you mean for the body?

More than likely he is talking about for it to conform to ROAR rules. If you are a backyard basher or only a loose club racer probably not a big deal. Why would you want to convert to 17mm anyway?

Since you are in Socal, check the hobby shop at OCRC, they had a new one there last week for $89 I think.

Thanks Stang, been to the local track and going back Saturday. Just looking for a little input from any carpet burners.

Yeah I just race in a small outlaw series as there is no organized tracks close to me. I thought runing 8th scale wheels and tires would make it handle better. Do you not think it will?

Well, to be honest I am not sure. I would say not just do to the increased weight and rotational mass. I would stick with the 12mm and get some DE Racing wheels or something. I guess it really doesn't matter you can try it out and see what happens?

at our carpet track, stock SC10 tires work great. my slash tires weren't that great. not enough grip. too much slide. sc10 tires are a nice blend of grip/slide.

Thanks Phreak. Is that the 2wd or 4wd SC10 tires?

i believe they're both the same. i would just try to avoid using the foams that come with the tires if you can.

They should ship monday or tuesday...just have to find a location in the warehouse and they will go out. Most of the first shipment is already sold.

Well, I meant legal width for the class, but considering that limit includes the body, yeah, it would be too wide for the body as well.

There is less sidewall flex running 8th scale wheels but the tread patterns are usually better on most of the sc tires I have seen.

I am curious as to why you bring up DE racing wheels...I know they are a shade lighter than stock, but they flex like a banshee...lol.
