CS is a company in europe, they have a traction compound that works pretty well on carpet, its yellow in color and i think that is what it is called, "yellow/high grip". I only know it because whenever i race over their im always ninja style dipping in Mark or Jilles's sauce lol and sometimes that is what it is.

Any chance this is the same stuff as "Accute Asphalt" from Much More? (its bright yellow) I have tried that and like it real well, but its way to pricey.

Paul, I've noticed on some of your setup sheets you use buggy grip as your traction compound. After doing some testing with the buggy grip, paragon, and acute asphalt, I could not get my car to feel right with just the buggy grip. How are you using it? Do you just clean your tires with it then apply tweak after letting buggy grip soak? (i tried doing that instead with acute asphalt instead of tweak and i really like my car with it)

Paul,

do you have any good setups for a mid-low bite asphalt track? Our primary class is 13.5.






(most guys are using "team epic" buggy grip and then baking them with "tire tweak")

Paul I hate to bust in on your thread like this but I have a setup thats good for the type of conditons your running in. Here is the link to it:http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...6&setup=t2_008
We are running a flowing layout until you reach one technical section thats meant for a carpet track but whatever. I took the front way bar off to give it a little bit more aggresiveness through this tight section, but it felt like it still was understeering a tad bit. So if it feels the same way next time I may move the front quick roll center from upper inner to lower inner and try that

Paul,
What are your recommendations for the ECS driveshafts? Do you recommend the 52mm or the 50mm?

Also, can we use any other brand springs with the T2 Pro or the T2 009?

What's the part number of the white pistons that fit the plastic T2 shocks? The only optional pistons I can find are the 308036, but the description of these says

"The new pistons have a larger external diameter and are flatter than the standard kit pistons and because of that, these pistons fits only to 308306 alu shocks specially developed for T2’008 cars."

Thanks!

Im pretty sure that those are the ones, after thinking about it the white ones that i had were most likely prototype.










Hi everyone, Im off to a race in just a couple of hours. (great lakes classic). It seems like a horrible excuse because i am posting now but it really takes me forever to type responces because i stink at typing, (seriously) and i dont have time to get back to all of the responces right now. i will get to them all when i get home or if i find a PC and some time at the race. Sorry

Thanks, Paul

I think that it really depends on the track. lately i have been cleaning with buggy grip then putting a small amount of tweak on the tire and letting it dry before i run.

I dont have a set up that i made specially for 13.5 but my reedy race set up from this year should be pretty good with some minor tweaks. sorry.

I have not had a chance to test the forward motor a lot yet but i think that for low traction situations it would be really good.

Hi, Normally i recommend the 52mm drive shafts for the front, you can use other brand springs. ours fit best for our shocks and spring cups but you can use Hpi springs and they will just be a little loose on the shocks, but im not sure about other brands.
