You are correct on the shore ratings. The double pink/orange is also called Cyan which is 35 shore with a 55 shore outer ring. The tires do wear quite fast but i guess thats the price you pay for traction in mod. I will probably try double pink/orange in front and double pink in the back next week for even more steering. The tossolini setup requires the front arms to be cut so you can move them back an additional 3mm and a couple of the suspension blocks to be shaved 1-2mm. If you decide to do it, take your time, the end result is well worth it though.

How much is truely gained by that setup? Althought I have the capabilities to perform the mods I don't think I have the patience these days...

with the shaved front arms you get more steering, with the shaved blocks in the rear you're lowering the rear rollcenter so you'll have more rear traction. Overall the car will be more responsive and have more grip. IMO it's worth it for foam carpet racing.

vtl1180ny,

Matt just said it exactly. The car is just "planted" and super responsive. The only issue i am having with it is i cant find any 28lb springs for the front. I have tried 25's and the front dives a bit to much entering turns if you arent careful, and i have tried 30's and it pushes a bit. If you are going to be racing on carpet a lot its deffinetly worth trying.

I used AE purples in front and AE coppers in the rear, if I remember right they are 30 and 25 lb springs

They were springs for the Yokomo GT4 nitro car, I don't know off hand what color was 28 lbs though.

I just got back from Japan today ..... and yes I went to RC Champ - Tokyo for my RC shopping needs. Anyway, the shopping experience was not good because I met two bada$$ shopkeepers: the chubby bald got B+ and the small lazy look got A- for being lousy characters

Here is my tip when shopping overseas: If you don't smile & you speak necessarily, they ( the locals ) will treat you right !!! If they act rude, you slam the money + merchandise on the table

Regardless the unpleasant experience, the shop have complete stocks of mr4tc sd. I get all the spare and hop up parts for my yokomo.

Go to yokomo.tk and use Mo's carpet setup... It's very close to where you want to be....

The car likes soft tires from what I'm finging out, see my above post....

I may try the Tossolini setup if I get adventurous....

Otherwise the car is great.... I haven't touched my Tc3 since converting to CGM....

I tried the shaved front arms but the shorter wheelbase made the car too twitchy for me.
