Eh, this is kind of a general question, but I'm sure one of you guys will know. How far do you sauce rubber tires for carpet? Presumably, the entire rear, but what about the front?

For me, i do the entire tyre.But just like with foams you can play with it, although i don't feel the grip levels are affected any where near as much as with foams

The new arms are much stronger but on carpet they aren't as good as the old arms but on asphlat they are much better!

It's only standard in one of the three kits. Most U.S. racers purchase the kits without the one-way.

Specialized R/C (Corally USA's aftermarket brand) makes them. You have to mill the chassis out for it to fit, but not too much. They will ship them overseas... I think the price is around $100 US. I guess it makes the car transition faster, and moves some weight in toward the centerline.
