Its easy. Jaco Double Pink Orange Fronts and Double Pink Rears. Parma also sells the same compounds just under a different name. Their fronts are Cyans and the rears are Magenta.

Should we go with the 2-stage Jacos? That is all I have been using....on my TC cars.

2-stagers feel a little nicer when the traction builds up. They calm the car down and let it "float" a little better in the corner. I know a lot of the mod guys that run the single stagers because they are a little more aggressive. Just personal preference though.

Hi Korey,

You may not be Todd; but, that is a perfect explanation. Thanks kiddo!

Hope to see you at the Nats in a couple weeks.

Hartch, as a surname, does not exist in this database, because it is not among the top 55,000 most common names in the US.

Hey Todd, are you running the Orion 3.5 brushless? If so, what would you gear it at Speedworld? I tried it today at the 9.2 "Large Track" recommendation in the box but it didn't seem right. Thanks, MO

Hey Todd,

I wanted to congradulate You and Team Losi on the recent aqusistion of Alan Hewit to the team, Saw him race Ron Schorr's Carpet car on Sunday with very nice results. Can not see what he can do with a freash car and fresh pair of eyes....

Good kid and and great attatude, should bring great things to Team Losi...
I still remembering helping him setting up his first TC3 back in 2003 in a dusty ol parking lot.....Now the kid just lays a smack down.

Contragates, great choise.
-Shookie <><

Hope the kanies are doing well...
