hey Josh i have a question about Paragon traction for the tires. Can u use it on foam and rubber? will it make the tires wear out quiker? Will it make my car slide out on asphalt? Tell me every thing you know about Paragon traction for the tires.

thx

i am not josh but i can give you some info about paragaon traction compounds. it has 2 versions both are available commercially. both are also equally as effective; they also can be used for rubber/foam on carpet/asphalt. but be careful when using on asphalt if the track is dusty and uneven it would only add more problems like making your car spinout.

striker - It usually lets the back end roll more and generates more rear traction...

TL_XXX-S_racer - I would use Paragon Ground Effects on foam and rubber tires on carpet. The Ground Effects is also good on foam tires on asphalt. I would use the FX-II on rubber tires and somtimes on foam tires outdoors... I've tried the new Paragon (oderless) but I don't really like it at all....

endler - I never raced a NTC3 so I have no clue on a set-up... Scott must be mistaken.....

Hey Josh, on the Xray FK setup sheet they show the option to put 'clips' on the front hinge pin mounts. I know that there not used for toe out. What effect would angleing the front hinge pins have on handling ?
Thanks.

Ozwald - We all ran spools (I tested with a diff a little bit)....

Evicerator - LOL... I guess only time will tell!!!

jag88 - It's supposed to give the car more steering but I can't say I have ever tried it....

trackdesigner - Nope....
