Hey Guys,

Anyone still using an ssg with foam tires on carpet? My ssg has always worked so well for me on assphalt that i havent wanted to change to the cgm. I might be racing on carpet next week so if anyone has a good mod/foam ssg setup they could email me i would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Blake

Cool. It seemed like a weird surface. On a high-bite track I would think a one-way would work, but I had a lot of trouble trying to use the one-way and had to switch to the spool (which was much faster) So I'm not sure whether it was really a high-bite track, I just know it beat up our tires. What have you guys been running, 1ways, diffs, or spools?

i've been playing with all three diffs at FW, i feel the must comfortable with reg diff. the spool will push entering a turn and a little thru the middle, the one way is ok it just makes me nervous knowing its there. at eslroc i used the spool and it was dailed, i mean really dailed, and that was using "ride" 038 tires and with the premounted 138g's it was to stuck. i mean like carpet. if you were running the 27's at regionals i heard they are only good for a couple of runs away. your gonna want to take a couple of new sets with you for practice. FW is actually running a class the past few weeks called nats stock, the 27's are mandatory but the motor is open, i ran it last week for the first time and only a couple of us actually used the mvp motor, i was able to figure out a couple of things to make it go fast i was able to get the temp DOWN to 160 and still be able to run with the p2k's and monster stocks. anyway, i'm gonna be at eslroc's two day race next weekend if you want to stop by i can tell you what i've been doing with the motor

crab boy,
try the after market shaft from tobee craft. I have been running it for almost a year now and I haven't had any problems with it. You can get it from www.speedtechrc.com
