If you are running Jaco try yellow rear/lilac front. If you are running BSR try white rears and team purple fronts. These work very well in lower bite conditions.

The "normal" tyre of all of us UK corally guys is Parma Magenta front with Grey rear. I think the bite in our carpet tracks is generally a fair bit lower than in the US, and we alwasy run on odourless adative.

I ended up taking all the electronics out and never even running the car. I decided to run a different car for the simple reason that I'm already running another 4 cell class and didn't want to have two different battery pack configurations. Silly reason, I know...

If anyone is interested in a never run US Spec SP12X with some NIP parts and gears give me a shout I'll give you a nice deal.

Default Spring collars?

Hi,

Does anyone know if there IS any part number for original corally front end spring collars?
There is no part number shown in manuals.

75570 is the part number. Probably check out www.SuperiorHobbies.com or www.StormerHobbies.com

You could use SXT 2.0. Although it is not considered a tire traction compound, it is an oderless tire conditioner.

Thanks for the tips, but this track doesn't allow any tire sauce I was looking for tire compounds. I ran purple pink last time. it was ok, till the residual compound from another track wore off.

How did your car handle at first, and then later? With purple/pink, I would expect it to push pretty badly. On low traction conditions we would start with pink rear and double pink front (Jaco) and go from there. You may have to go to Jaco magenta fronts, or even pink fronts.

Are you using the 1.6mm T-bar?
.018" front springs? or .016" ?
Thin dampener lube, like significantly thinner than Corally red?

it seemed close in terms of front to rear traction pushed more that spun, there just wasn't much overall traction. thin tbar, .018 springs, lube was soft, crc white cap i think, not positive. Ill have to try the different front tires. I gather that as soft as possible is the way to go for springs and damping?

thanks

btw does anyone know what corally red is equivalent to in diff fluid?

Yes, until you have acceptable traction.

Based on the rate the bubble rises when you invert the bottle, it looks a little heavier than 30,000 wt. Kyosho fluid.
