I think those 2 part are the pro4, that was Fernado's car anyway

kumpol, arun, dawg, or other guys running foams.

which foams are you finding fit best on the 415 wheel hexes?

i generally run parmas but the seem like are not that snug (kind of wobbly) until you tighten them down.

We just officially finished our carpet season; we will switch to asphalt with rubbers very soon. We mostly ran JACO tires all year, but kumpol switched to Parma at the birds and Fernando just switched to Parma at the carpet nats. I have not tried them yet. I just spoke to Fernando, and he says that he now preffers the Parma's, but that they do not run as well when not given the proper time to dry out (this is in high traction conditions, though). This is probably a non-issue for club racing. Others at our track have tried both, and I think most prefer the Parmas.

I haven't heard about any wobbling issues.

I run the Jaco's on my 415. I have never had a problem with them and the last time I checked they had the largest rim diameter of any foam tire out there so they fit better on the front of the 415.

I used Parma all this winter carpet season, with 0 rim issues. No cracks, bent or broken rims.

If you are going to run that on carpet with foam tires, make it a little easier on yourself and get rid of the 2 one-way's.

Hey Anthony,

Your 415 looks great. What ESC is that? Are you running a 4 wire set-up? Have you considered moving to a 3 wire set-up? Where are you running at this weekend?

I love Parma tires and Alfa body for carpet racing.
Do you have any shims on the wheel hex?
I have no shims in the front.....I don't notice any problem.
oh, I also use "TB-Evo IV Ball-Head King Pin" part# 51101 so the wheel won't rub any ball cup.
Don't screw in the king pin too deep - it will bind the c-hub.

Hey kumpol.

I`m still thinking what to buy to next body.

Do you think at that Parma Alfa is best body for carpet racing? Anyone agree that...

What about asphalt racing, which is the best for that?

The Parma Alfa is probably the most used body in foams...When I ran my Pro4, XXXS, and other cars on foams I always had a Parma or Losi Alfa body.

The Mazda6 body is one of the best outdoors.....a lot of people have been slowly starting to use the Ride Accords or Tamiya - Subaru Legacy bodies, but they are more expensive and harder to find.

khal - It's a Novak GT7 dyed black

I have done both the 3 and 4 wire setup off the GT7...just wanted to try running the motor and battery wire on their own instead of splicing in with a 3 wire setup.

---------------------

foams - parma's are awesome and cheap. another tire people might want to try are T M Racing foams....they are high quality and the wheels are a little bigger then other brands.
