So how did it do? Did the shocks hold up? I here that green slime is repackaged SF-3 Grease. Take a look.

After getting all the new car gremlins worked out (typical things like screws backing out, etc) it did well. Should be dialed once I get some better tires on there. Had to run some less than ideal tires this week. Shocks were no problem but Im also not using the stock shocks. Im using TRF shocks.

That does look like green slime!

It is used on the fork seals of motorcycles. So I am going to call some bike shops Monday.

Mr Crum, just to respond for fun ;-)

I just bought an Mi4 as well to replace my TC5. I gotta say, the TC5 has be so very good to me. Honestly I think the TC5 is easier to work on, parts are great (slop is easy to get rid of) and its drove me to expert class in 1 year at my track from starting onroad. Even placed 1rst in a 5 race points series with the TC5 My honest opinion: TC5 is awesome.

I myself like to spice things up with change. As I don't travel to other tracks anymore, I haven't had to find a setup for ages. The change to the Mi4 is mainly to build my setup skills.

Nick making all the Mi4 comments also annoyed me ;-) The best comment I read about kits was this: Don't stress about a faster/better kit until you make consistent runs without one mistake. (and no, Im not QUITE there, but it was a change of kit for fun like I said. SOMETIMES I'll have perfect runs....lets not make me look better than I am...or am not ;-)

My TC5 looked this good till last race.

I found the method to get the blue look doesn't last quite as long as I would have liked. (one race)The blue paint doesnt adhere well between layers of CA. Then again, part of the problem was I lowered ride height .5mm all around and upped my shock oil 5wt from 35wt. There are 2 rather large bumps entering the straight which knocked the rear blue CA/paint off. Ill have to try another method later. Still, nice to have a new look while it was clean!

I was under the impression the American Education System was good until I read this, muppet.

Quite clearly you need to return to school and learn to read.

Default Low Traction Asphalt Set up

Hello,

Running a pretty low traction, cold, asphalt track. Anyone got a good starting setup for a TC5R?

Tires? Tire Additive? Springs? Shock Oil? Shock Placement? etc...

I'm thinking a lot of has to do with driving style too... I've got a punchy trigger driving style, and the spx on profile 7 is probably not a good place to be. Maybe i gotta be smoother on the acceleration.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

-AJ

When ever I have rear traction issues, I go to green springs in the rear and that normally solves it.
