There are other sheets for the same track if you look on there.

This is for wlrc.co.uk, the track has fairly low grip compared with a lot of asphalt tracks as the tarmac is nearly 20 years old.

That stuff does work, but I needed to raise my chassis 1.5mm to make legal height again. Car then started lifting inside rear tire around corners, so took it off and lowered the car again and was fine, thats why I went back to contact and just replaced it more often, but which ever works for you.

General consensus is that the stock plastic ones are fine. I'd think if the Aluminum ones were better for any reason you'd see them on the Pro Team drivers guys, which you don't.

I don't own alu shocks but from what I've heard best choice is
plastic shocks - low traction
alu shocks - high traction

What do you think about mi4 mate? I Think you've got both 009 and mi4 ...
If you compare them which one do you think works better on Track?
Thanx in advance

They are both very good cars. With good setup it's about the same in terms of handling.
I personally like MI4 more, however it has it's downsides (nothing's perfect ) - not covered diff like Xray have and blades on front driveshafts.

I'll tell you experience of other local guy - he raced Xray before and switched to MI4 recently and he says it's much easier to drive for him - he just love the car.

The solution is to strap your battery in properly with the tape you already have

Has anyone tried them? I've heard some packs won't fit. I have a smc 3200 40c hard case as well as the ip 3800 35c hard case, does anyone know if both these packs will fit?
