I've been running around a 59mm rollout at my local track. At IIC I ran around a 64mm rollout.

That size split is common when running 1/12 and wide 1/10 cars but we find that running equal size front and rear tires frees up the rear and increases mid corner rotation and corner speed. I think this is partly to do with the dynamics of a 200mm narrow chassis and partly that the DB10R has a lot of steering and a lot of over all traction.

On bigger tracks I have run roll outs from 70mm (electric asphalt track) to 80mm (open 1/8th nitro track) with a 13.5 on 4 cells. FYI, the only reason I could run 80mm was because the track was so wide open the car never really slowed down in the corners.

The I-Fource like's the same front and rear as well on the carpet. Since I normally run softer rears, I need to true the front to match the rears as they come down. On pavement, it does not seem to make much difference.

Taz ... Track looks much better than anything we have here in Colorado. Not sure If I can make it, but if you e-mail me the flyer, I get it on our club site and print out and have out for our new track.
