hi all,

Ran my CRC CK yesterday on outdoor asphalt with these tires. I just couldn't get the grip I needed. I ran this outdoor on med-low grip asphalt. the surface wasn't super smooth. I need more meat on the tire basically, was wondering if there's going to be an un cut version of the rubber tire. I had to revert going back to foam but the car was a huge blast to race, ending up taking the W.

If you go back away in the thread, running these on anything but carpet really doesn't work. Because of how the tire is made they can't be bigger. It is molded (not cur out of a sheet like a foam), mounted and then trued (light cut) to spec. No material is available for a larger dia.

For the guys racing with the USGT 21.5 motors, are you closer to rollout of 100 or 120?

Great race, tough break on getting caught up with traffic. Looks like all the practice and racing is starting to pay off, really good consistency again. Did you temp the motor when trying different pinions? How does the diff and bearings feel? I see that the wires from the ESC to motor seem pretty thicc, are they hindering left/right rear pod action?

I know the wires need to be shorter. They wonít fit under the new body Iíve got. Everything seems free to move. But really the improvement came from a battery change. Basically ran the same overall time with the old, badly worn tire and the brand new ones.
Motor barely gets warm I ran 50-57 pinion/72 spur
