Yes, CRC should have hard pink's publically available soon, standard pinks are very close, hard pinks are much like the Jaco Magenta, same shore as pink, but the cells of the foam are tighter, and give a little more rear traction.

The dead spot is so small the car still tweaks from the rear w and exacto knife on a flat surface. The .5 degree I measure with an integy laser tweak board.

May I interject a bit here to end any confusion before it starts.....

In the past, our rear magenta's were a great choice for super high bite conditions. Now with the lighter cars, we found a slightly softer version of the R4 rubber was best. So, for 2009-2010 season, CRC rear Magenta rears a.k.a. "hard pinks" are the same as what Aaron and Brian Wynn used . Part # 2176

Hi, Aaron. Thanks for the setup info.

I'm curious how you powered the receiver on the car. Did you use a voltage booster or a separate "receiver pack." If you used a reciever pack, what voltage and did you plug it directly into the receiver.

Thanks,

Bob

I use a small 2 cell lipo pack, direct into the rx, no regulator.

Cool, This is great info for us average guys. Thanks for your help! Do you guys find that the rear end gets to locked down with the pinks?

What tools do you need to build this thing people? Thinking of getting one. I've got 1.5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm and 3mm allen drivers. Is the car metric or 'old' imperial. If imperial what allen drivers and nut drivers do you need?

Cheers, Chaz

I did, the firmer pinks worked great with magenta fronts!

The car is 'old imperial' except for the clamping hub and motor screws. They use 2mm and 2.5mm, so you're sorted for them.

The other sizes are:

11/32" nut driver for the diff nut.
3/16" nut driver (useful to have two but not essential).
Large cross head screwdriver for front suspension arms (actual size has rubbed off mine!)
1/4" flat head screwdriver
0.035" allen driver
0.050" allen driver
0.063" allen driver
0.078" allen driver
0.093" allen driver.

The car comes with a full set of allen keys which can be used just about as well for the smallest couple of sizes.

I think that's it. I'm sure someone will say if I've missed any.

On a point of order, Trev, the left-side hub is actually 5/64", or to be precise, 1.9844mm. It happens that the 2mm driver works fine, but the reality is that the allen bolt has 5/64" AF socket in it. The only metric allen socket on the car is, as you say, the motor screws. HTH

Are the green X firm side springs to hard for stock carpet racing? The track I am racing on is tight with med. traction.

For stock racing I've never used anything but the stock white springs.

The white made the car feel to lazy for our small track. The red (firm) works really well. Oh well the green side springs seem a bit to stiff. I am not sure what conditions would be needed for a X firm spring. Maybe in mod with tight turns.

Frank, Brian, anyone...? I see the set-up sheets for the Gen XL from all the recent successful races (well done lads, good job!) never made it onto the site. Just a small jab in the neck to remind you to get them up there for us all? Thanks.
