Gordie have you ever tried spool on carpet???
Yes, I have run the spool on carpet. Some of the guys at my track prefer the spool but I have gotten used to a oneway so that's what I run.

I'm confused. What is a double drive shaft? Juraj talked about testing it, but I don't think he explained what it is or posted a picture of it.

Yeah they only mentioned it but didn't show any pics. I think there was a pic I saw somewhere about a year or so ago. I am assuming they are still testing thier "double" drive shafts that are like the Losi LCD's. The drives shafts have two pivot points that reduce drive shaft chatter when using a spool.

Here are the Losi LCD's (on the bottom):

Your Tire is control Tire ?
if can use JB Foam insert , will can easy to setup.
about Tim Fly said spring yes is fit carpet to use ( My Choice F-Gold , R-Silver ),
but HPI too long not fit in T2'008,
F Spring around 2.6
R Spring around 2.4

Hi, what is a good starting ratio for an Orion 10.5 on a medium sized track and what is the spur and opinion you use on the T2'08? Thanks.
