if you gotta try it.....take a look at the Paul L. car in the Cleveland report on the CRC site...but the front end is not really designed for a flat servo and either is the chassis...looks like Paul placed the servo pretty far foreward to get the correct bump-steer...good luck!

Ran this setup this weekend and it is indeed a great setup. It really smoothed out my car. Everything else I tried this year made the car twitchy but this was the ticket.

Thanks johnnywhopper,

My bag-o-springs came with red, copper, silver and a gold-ish silver... I guess I bought the wrong spring kit. Does CRC have the softer spring kit or do they recommend to just get the AE springs?

thanks all
Rudy

Default Center springs

CRC 1344 spring kit consists of springs 1340/red, 1341/copper, 1342/silver(.050), 1343/silver(.055), the optional spring is 1339/blue. The other ones must come from other models. You could check the CRC web site and poke around a little for other spring listings, I'm pretty sure the center shock is the same on each model, unfortunately the springs aren't listed by thickness or as a group. 1348/gold is the only other one I could find listed.

The car kit comes with gold and the 1344 spring set comes with all the stiffer (than gold) springs. Softer than gold (blue and down) are really only meant for t-bar cars. CRC recommends not using softer than gold.

Default tires

Are any of you running the Jaco Prisim tires? If so, how do they compare to the Pro-Cuts (in performance and fit). Are the wheels true? Do you need to change the front width? Can you use the flanged bearings?

Thanks in advance.

The offsets are different on a Jaco. I had to add one extra shim each side to the rear. Actually the Jaco makes the foam for the CRC tires. You can use flanged bearings. With Jaco's you have a little more of a choice of compounds.

Just a quick correction here...

Jaco does not make the foam for CRC tires. In fact, I'm very sure that Jaco does not make the foam for Jaco tires. CRC, GRP, Parma, BSR and Jaco all get foam that originates from the same factory in Japan.

CRC pioneered the big wheel craze that has now been "implemented" by every other manufacturer. Our Pro Cuts have won Regional, National and World Championships.

When comparing to other brands, CRC front wheels have a slightly larger OD. It also appears that our wheels are a bit more stiff than the rest. Another nice feature is the design of he rear wheel puts additional bracing around the mounting area. We like to think that this design allows our rear wheels take hit better than other wheels.

With our new, more efficient mounting and truing, a few months ago, CRC drastically lowered the price of the tires to distributors allowing them to sell to the dealers cheaper. We hope that dealers pass this savings on to the final consumer. As tires stock moves through the system, we are beginning to see prices on the Pro Cuts drop to the sub $12 range.

Best tires, great price. But of course I am biased!

Thanks,
Frank
