What is the part number for the side link balls? I can't find it on the CRC site.

Default Tire of choice

What seems to be the tire ('s) of choice for most of you and what size do you cut them to the first time.. (For carpet).

I'm going to need to go to a softer tire combo, the Grey/Purple isn't giving me enough traction, probably going to drop to Pink/Magenta...

For out track - High Elevation - Lots of Snow today - Ozite Med Grip -

I've gone to Black fronts and White rears. The Magenta fronts / Pink Rear has also worked, just did not fit my driving style.

How do the compounds compare from these three... Jaco, Parma and CRC? Is a pink, white, gray, purple, black compounds the same shore, rubber makeup with all three companies?

One of the reasons I'm asking is. I was running Jaco White Rears. Traction was great for 6 to 7 mins and then lap times started to slow down and the car started to get a little unpredictable. Also the tire wear was .5mm per 8 minutes. The good thing with running these tires I picked up very little carpet fibers.

When I ran Jaco Pink rears the traction was great!! Tire wear was less than .5mm per 8 minutes even better. The big problem with the pinks is that I would pickup so much carpet fiber I would turn my axle bearing into bushings after one heat?

Just didn't know if there were any compound in between Jaco whites and pinks? from other companies?

Thanks, Greg

I'd like to have the car before I give you my thoughts! Anyone know where I can get one. I live in Utah and all the shops are currently at the mercy of their suppliers.
