so they only fit on the bigger brushes, they won't fit on oh a paradigm mod motor, or a monster stock.

Todd, I'm trying to get more initial steering out of my xxx-s and I'm really having a hard time achieveing that. I run up at Speedworld in Roseville so I know you are somewhat familiar with the track. I'm running 50wt oil front and rear with blue springs, stock mid roll centers, steering system flipped and moved forward and arms in the middle front and rear. I've tried taking the front swaybar off to achieve what I'm looking for but it but it becomes to hard to drive without the front bar. Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Brad

hey todd,

i read that you recommend to run a bigger piston in the shocks for rubber/carpet....

i`m almost just driving on carpet, so i want to switch it.
what would be a good choice?
54 or 55? btw: i have the standard 56 ones. would like to run it with 30wt and 50 wt.
the tracks were i`m running tend to have a lot of grip.

another question: can you generally say that running a lighter oil in the front is better than in the back?or is it the opposite?

thanks a lot!!!

proracer3-i dont think they will be legal for stock motors since they will increase the retail value of the motor.

Here are the pics of them

Brad-Try moving your front shocks out on tower. Also try some antisquat in the car.

Magic-Give them a try and see what you like. I personally always try to make the front of my car to feel even or a bit thicker dampened compared to the rear.

Alex-Sup man...missed you at Novak race. I heard a TL car laid the smack down on you last weekend....j/k!! I get to the birds on Monday night...cya there.

Cypress-Wasssup!

promatchrcr-I thought the P-Machine was dialed on carpet. It had great steering, good rear bite and was smooth. If I would of had one painted I would of ran it at the Novak Race.

Alex Lopez-LOL...that was good. Now all you need is a TL car and you would be SUPER DIALED

pro3racer-I used Trinity Purple on the front and Trinity Blue on the rear.

Man Alex, You win Cleveland and you still catch grief about the chassis you run? That's rough.

And if Alex were mean, all he'd do is ask Todd where he finished at Cleveland, but I don't think Alex is that way...I on the other hand!
Todd, Where did YOU finish at Cleveland?

*Quickly jumps between the ravenous posters and Todd to give him ample time to formulate his rebuttal or find an adequate escape route*
