My setup now is:

Silver center spring
30wt in the shock
.24 BMI springs front
Surelube #6, very thick purple colored lube
Batts all the way back
Dlp pink all around
Servo is angled

The tires I cannot change as thats all I have, same with the servo as I dont have the parts needed to lay it flat. So I'm thinking of moving the batts forward and mabey changing the spring/oil wt. Any thoughts?
I believe the silver spring is a stiff spring. You might try going to the red or the stock gold. Also if your tires have sat for awhile it may take some time for the traction compound to soak back into them to get back to the same level of grip as before.

Silver is actually one step softer than the gold. I would go to the gold or red and drop down to #4 surelube. That should help a ton

Check out the IRS site dave lists both sizes.

UGA-
for the left hub screw- you can use a 5/64" or 2mm hex driver. the 11/32" nut driver is for the diff. nut.

I have the correct hex driver, I just need to replace the screw. Sorry, I always get confused by inch sizes, as I am from Europe :P

So far, this is the only place I've found to get replacement left side hub screws, which is at IRS, the vendor of the hub. You want IRS part number 214.
I have to order some myself:

Edit: Stormer also has them.

Hi Eric, yep we're going to speedsports tonight. Alot of the guys are unhappy with the track conditions at CH right now. Runing the off-road track dry is making the carpet track a dust bowl from what I've been told.
