Well, there is a lot we could go into.

Touring Car, pretty either Red/Red springs or Red/Purple for stock. The purple would go on the positive. Stiffer spring on the positive gives more bottom end power. Run the lightest springs you can based on the racing you do. Indoor racing you can get away with lighter springs than outdoors due to the heat.

The lighter springs will fade at the end of the run. It is pretty much the same for 19T as well. You can go even stiffer sometimes like Purple/Purple for 19T or stiffer. Hope this helps.

It is funny that car manufacturers want to test something at the highest level and everyone immediately thinks a new car is coming. Just because you test something doesn't mean it is automatically in production.

If that was the case, we would have anarchy amid the various topic strings. Please try to stay within the vein of the topic.

As I remember, you original post belonged in the "Stock Motors" string.

I thought the 1.3 mm pistons I got some months ago already had rounded edges. Right/Wrong???

You are right.

It says that 1.1mm and 0.9mm rounded pistons have been ADDED to the already available 1.3mm pistons. The rounded 1.3mm pistons have been available for a while. The 1.1mm pistons are all new at the request from CorallyUSA to see in production.

Jeff

Oops! Yes, I reread it. My bad!

Maybe "Oops Bill" applies as my next handle.

Thanks Jeff!!!

Are the new 1.1mm pistons the Corally equivalent of the Tamiya 3-hole pistons that everyone is using?

Yeah, that sounds pretty good.

I think the 1.1mm or 0.9mm should be used at all times due to recent testing. Only time to consider the 1.3mm pistons I think would be bumpy tracks, or the Rally version of the RDX. Perhaps in low traction situations as well. You could do it though with lighter oil though with the 1.1 or 0.9 pistons.

I have been thinking a lot about dampening and the car seems to be reacting better and better the more we increase the "pack" of the dampening, mainly on asphalt. It should help with Carpet as well. You can go too far of course.

Someone at the recent ROAR Nationals talked to me about how my car was silent going around the track and pretty much zero tire squealing compared a majority of the other cars at the race.

I did not think much about the comment at the time but since talking to other drivers and they have tried either my setup, or just increasing the dampening themselves, it makes a lot of sense. Seems we have more test perhaps to go even faster.

I think the new pistons will be the way to go.

Jeff
