Todd,
I'm having trouble with the XXX4 in the rear. The car feels great in the corners. But when I land from almost any jump, if I'm not just perfectly level, the rear wants to hop out one way or the other. I'm running yellow springs in the rear with 30wt Losi oil and 57 pistons. I think it maybe bottoming out and bouncing off the track. it seems like I need more pack to slow the shocks down more the further into the stroke it goes. Any suggestions?

Many thanks.
Bill - I have a pretty good rubber tire setup for Trackside.

I was the only Losi to make the stock rubber A main.

Default Congo springs

What are the weights on the congo springs? All the Trinity web-site shows is their size. I need to know if the losi white, orange etc, are comparable or if any other manufacturer would have a comparable spring. Any help would be appreciated.

This is direct from Trinity Tech Support to me last week...It regards the XXX-S Congo springs only

Yellow is 43# (I currently use this as my front spring on carpet)
Orange is 33# (I currently use this as my rear spring on carpet)
Blue is 24# (discontinued per Hodge or Flack. Guess it is too similar to Losi 25# spring)

Fastfreddy74-I use program 5 for both stock and mod.

peter_robinson-In the past year a lot of guys were going to softer tires to get more forward drive off of the turn with these hot motors we are running on carpet. Most of the TRC drivers are also using softer tires too. At the nats last year the softer tires just seem to have more grip and corner speed there. I think a NEW set of magentas have more bit than a NEW set of Tan rears. After one run though the TAN's have more sidebite than the Magenta's. I am not sure why this is but that is what I have experienced. On the skoda vs. Alfa. if you want your car to be super smooth and nuetral feeling then the Skoda is the ticket. I think when the traction comes up this body is very easy to drive and still does fast laptimes. The Alfa can ultimately do the faster lap times but can be hard to drive and twitchy.

XXX-SBill-Check out the TL website and try my Trackside setup from 2003. That should be good to start with rubber tires. I would not start with the carpet/foam setup since it has the offset rear end on it.

THeGame-Thanks!! Skodas should be in shops now.

jkerr0043-Are you running inside hole on rear arm? Try that with #56 pistons/25 to 30 wt depending on temp, and shocks 2nd hole on tower.

dr_hfuhuhurr-TRC Marble(shore 55/37) is a front tire that is harder than a CYAN(shore 55/35) and Soft than a PLAID(shore 55/40)

Hey Todd, who do I have to beg to get sticker sheets for the Skoda bodies I picked up at Trackside?

I didn't realize they were special pre-production models. haha

Just curious, but what the heck is a TRC marble? I've never heard of it till now and its not listed on the trinity website, nor does Horizon carry it. Is this some new prototype tire that has not been released yet?

i know this question has been askes before, but oh well. My lhs really only caries jaco foams, and i would have to order trc foams, so what would, oh, a trc tire be equal to in jaco tires. I hate this color thing, yes, it's how i tell tires apart, but why can't every company use the same chart!

Purple=Purple
Double Purple=Double Purple
Plaid=Purple/Orange
Magenta=Double Pink
Cyan=Double Pink/Orange

TRC also has a tan(37 shore) and a lime42 shore), but I don't think there is a Jaco equal. Still trying to figure out what this TRC Marble is....

TRC has a an excellant tire guide on their site.

Granite isn't currently listed as available for touring car. The trinity website nor Horizon list it. Its mainly a 1/12th scale tire. But if you read up and then read the new article Todd did in RC Cars, he says MARBLE. We're all stumped.....nobody knows what tire it can be.....other than an unreleased test tire.
