Default Take Off cs22 Questions/probs...!

Guys how many runs are a set of CS22's good for...? I was racing this weekend and was using a set of 22's that prob done about 20+ runs and my car was sliding all over the place .. could it be that tires are shagged?? They are the pre-glued 22's

Would running 22's when track temp is higher cause car to slide about or would they give you more grip as they are softer??

Anyone have experience of using Hara Hot Bodies inserts in 22's, 27's

Thanks

I changed from a diff to a one-way and then a spool?

How many runs should they be good for best results ....

Probably buggered, have you been using traction compound? cuz I hear this shortens the life of the tyres a bit.

The tires are causing the problems with your car, no doubt!

The CS22 are for cold weather only, when hot they will suddenly loose traction!
Also, they are only good for about 5 runs, after that they will loose their performance + overheat allot faster!

Try a new set with CS27, 26mm Wheels with the Hara Grey inserts, this should hook you up!

By the way, Tire Tweak is really good!!

Awesome Eirik ...those old 22 tyres are going to see the rubbish bin ...!

The 26mm wheels you refer to.. are these inch ups or just normal 26mm rims. I have been using pre-glued jobs so guess time to try other things...
Any specific brand rim that is good?

I know that Spashett and Moore are using the 26mm wheels all the time with Take off's

I really like the Orion 26mm wheels, but I know David is using PD/Trick Bits wheels, Part#TB4322W
No Inch Up, just the normal diameter!

Hpi Yellow inserts also work good in this tire/wheel combo.....

Just been on the phone and ordered those wheel and tire combinations .. so will try those this week in practice ... so hopefully this weekend the car will feel better ...!

Thanks for the advice and ideas .. will never use tires etc for that long again ...! Bin they go...

In the UK the ratings perform a little different (we don't get the heat you guys do )
I ran a full season in the Scottish Championship using CS22's all through the season and they were the tire to work!! (In all temperatures)

Check out some of the set up sheets of Andy Moore and Kevin Brunsden at the HPI site - should give you a few clues for tyre/insert combinations. (mainly CS22/HPI yellow on 26mm wheels)
Good Luck!
