When I run the Jacos I just take an exacto blade and cut off 2mm off of them on my tire machine. It is a little bit of a pain but you can still use up your Jacos then. I think CRC makes some 26mm and Speedmind to. Jaco also makes some 24mm but they seem a tad bit narrow and the wear a tad bit more.

I have a set of HPI 30mm's that'll fit front and rear without rubbing... My Team Orion 26mm, the webbing on the inside of the weel tends to run very slightly, haven't tried the Arrows on the front...

Actually my rubber tires rub on the front shock spring cups with the 2nd from outter position. As for Foam tires, if you use Yokomo inchup 32mm wheels they fit in the rear with 2nd from outter hole on arm. For front, Yokomo inchup 26mm with 2nd from inside hole on arm.

Jeff, I didn't have a good setup at all at the Durham/Nationals Track. I have only raced at that track once since the Nationals. They aren't getting enough people to show up to race. I race here at my local track. I like it better. Smaller and nicely laid out. And blah blah blah. Track surface is similar. And it's both sweeping and technical. I'll try and get a pic of my setup. Just gotta find certain things first. Maybe I'll just take a pic of it.. haha. Do you use RaySpeed Springs or Yok? Stock SSG chassis? I'll go looking and post one up later on for ya.

Anyways, let me go back and change my setup to carpet....

I just found this picture/article on a Japanese RC magazine's website, it is an SD (of course) with a ride air intake (to the motor) and, maybe a tub chassis ??? Whatever it is, it looks coooooool!!!!

I finally got around to taking pictures of my SD, so here it is. It is equipped with Rayspeed, Tobee Craft, Shooters, and Suzuki parts. I've cut material out of the battery brace, used a top-mounted sway bar on the rear (lower position), and use 2 Rayspeed top decks. This car is driven on carpet with foam tires. I hope this gives people some ideas for their cars.

I say again, Graphite shaft NOT recomended even for stock 23 turn use.

End of broadcast :P
I have used the exact same Yok carbon shaft without any problems for 4-5 consecutive mod races with 9-10 turn motors WITHOUT any problems... YET.

When I put the rear tower on the front I gained a ton of steering going into the corner off power.

It seemed to have a ton all around. I nornally have alot of steering coming out since I have a spool in. I really noticed the extra steering going in. If you switch you won't loose any steering coming out. If anything you would gain a little more.
