Hello,

What kind of bracket are you guys using to mount a fan to the motor and speed control on the TRF415msx R2?

Thx

No offence but you're guessing wrong. Best tyre if you're not using preglued is CS22. It will provide plenty of grip. Other tyres like the CS27 may feel better but will be slow on laptimes. However, CS22s loose about half a second a lap after 3 runs, whilst CS27s stay pretty much consistent. As they get older, CS22s will have a tendancy to make your car feel like it's very loose from the rear, but it's only the tyres. No matter what the conditions, a fresh set of CS22s, RP24s etc... will be quicker than a harder compound, although harder to drive.

Problem is, with the new CS preglued it's not true anymore, they have changed the rims and they don't seem as good as before.

Cheers guys, may try that with the shocks. Was going to buy a set of RP24's to glue up, but wonder if the 30's would be better going into the summer.

Cheers

Anyone know what the temperature rating is for the RP24 and 30 tyres, same as the Sorex 28 and 32's?. I've been looking everywhere for a rating.

...hummm, I thought you had the actual outdrives made and not the yokomo set up. I already have the youkomo set up. I'll wait for the TAMIYA diff set.

Cool though.

Haven't heard a release date yet - so for the interm - yokomo assemblies (especially the steel) work great!

yes the back end on these new pre glued are crap.
for glueing ur own tyres cs22 are still best in uk,wioth premounts need more testing but i know cs22 is a no no.
