I'll try to use softer anti roll bars next time, and maybe a little more camber.
Do your tires have less traction at the beginning (when they are cold) or at the end (when they are hot)?

Anyone know who carries Maxmod tire machine parts? Any hobby shops or websites that I can find stuff. I need a touring car adaptor for my Maxmod.

I know I do. I'm just really in a hurry as I have another Maxmod I bought but I need a touring adaptor. My other Maxmod had one but it was stolen about a month ago and I finally found another machine but I need the touring adaptor.

Once my tires are at correct temperature, I feel I'd need a little more grip to be as fast as the best ones (Kevin Brunsden won on Sunday).

You say you need more traction. Is that on the whole car or on the front or rear specific?

Try using an insert with a little less air gap, or drilling 4 4mm holes into the rim. Both of these things will make it so the tire wont heat up as much, and you will get traction all the way through the run.

BTW, I dont know if anyone else has this problem, but my Yok shocks with RS O-Rings bleed pretty badly... I bought some TRF Flourine shocks that I'll adapt to the SD, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had the problem?

No problem, if I set a faster time at the remainder of the race, it propably means I found a better tire/insert combo, drop by my pit and I'll let you in on the secret
