Did you forget that our indoor asphalt track is sprayed with a light mist of WD40 every so often. See you tomorrow.

Hehe, thanks for all the reply's and info guys
I sprayed some on my desk and now it stinks and is all greasy xD, but I will deffo try it out tomorow on the track on the tires.
But if its an oiled based solution, isn't it possible to spray some WD40 on the tires, and then apply some solvent solution to remove the oil quicker ?

For running ooutdoor asphalt, you can clean with wd40 after dry apply your traction compound.

Hello, raced my car today , the car itself was great, no problems, could keep up with some 10.5 racers seeing that it was easy and great to drive.
But then came the crashes , I broke a master block and a rear wishbone, is it worth getting the split blocks ? And also bent a little bit a driveshaft ... so I'll probably get the steel ones, but shall I get the 46 mm or the 44 one's ?
Cheers again

Cheers, will get them.
Another thing, are the split blocks from the TB-03 interchangeable with the 417 ?
And is it worth getting the gear diff by taming for the rear ?

Split Blocks are compatible with 416 & 417 while gear diff is a personal choice. Some like it some don't.

Get 46mm steel for the front, the spool cups will last much longer. Steel in the rear doesn't matter so much.

Ok, I'll see what my LBS has.
So according to honest, I can't use TB-03 split blocks on my 417?
As I've been looking on rcmarket and he doesn't have the 417 split blocks.

When running a gear diff I had to run 44mm... Just an FYI for you guys that want to run double gear diffs.

Oh yeah, same here. 44mm steel for front gear diff. 46 for front spool.

Kody, you running the extra long links like Jilles? Change his birds setup much? I guess I'll start with it in ABQ. I'll be surprised if I traction roll with Solaris.

Steel bones last a lot longer in the back too, the aluminium ones are about as hard as a block of cheese so get sloppy very quick
