SMC 4400.

There's apparently a 1g variance between my scale and the tracks' but here's the weight with the car untouched since racing a few days ago. Steel front bulkhead and the two 25g, each battery weights are on the car.

None of the Yz2s here are underweight stock with shorty batterys. Lightest mine has been is 1518 with Dirtwebs, 17.5 team powers motor, and using only a strip of chassis protector down the middle. Only upgrades ive done is tightanium turnbuckles, shock pistons, and ball diff.

Here's the weight of four carpet tires in good shape. I don't have four, 2wd buggy dirt tires to weigh anymore for an immediate comparison but the delta between these and dirt tires probably accounts for alot of it.

Those are Schumacher LP cut stagger fronts with Schumacher mini-pin rears. Basically the defacto "spec" setup for carpet tracks that don't require slicks as they're light-years ahead of anything else.

One of our carpet tracks is an old, worn ozite base covered mostly with low-pile, high-traffic generic carpet closer to what the EOS uses. The other track is all, nearly new ozite and that one requires slicks to "save" the carpet.

Would you prefer the "Generic" carpet and run mini pins? Or ozite and slicks?

Much prefer pins. The cars move around a bit more but do so more consistently. It really runs very close to high-bite clay but without the tire choice game that entails.
