Hey speedy-932

Are you into a new hobby or something: collecting belt numbers?

You can probably bet that most of them come out of the same factory somewhere east and south of the Great Wall

I was looking at the race report from Todd Hodge and it stated that most of the drivers ran Sorex 36R tires. Are foam tires outlawed at these big races; they seem to be so much better than rubber? Thanks

airbear, rubber and foam tires are kept in serperate classes. Foams are usually much faster for ideal conditions, but i've been to many races where rubber would be faster.

Personally, I love tearing open some CS27's and bolting them on, then heading to the track. Way better then dragging my $200 truer out and cutting tires, making a mess, etc, then clunking a pipe and chunking it.......I'm not really in love with the tiny even further from scale appearance of a 58mm foam tire either, LOL....I'll race either, but given a choice?......but maybe that's just me, Jim

I like whatever costs less (foam in my instance) Rubber is more expensive ($35 and they last 3-4 weeks opposed to $30 which last 5-6 weeks) and where I race (permanent indoor track) rubber tires do not hook up very well until theres a groove built up by us guys who run foam.

I do have a problem with foams though. On my car the front tires wear down much quicker than the rear...In four packs, my front tires wore a millimeter more than the rear....At that rate, rubber will be cheaper before long

BK--Can you not just go up 1 shore on the tire to get more even wear?

Not sure what class you are running, but in modified there is just about no way to prevent this and be fast. Fronts are always going to wear faster because we are always searching for more steering with 7 turns

If you were to go to a plaid front with a double pink or magenta rear you will lose steering (not fast). Some conditions this will work, but most often it will not.

Best thing you can do is strive for a set up that you can be smooth "and" fast with, but over all the tires are going to wear a little faster in the front. Try to free the back end up without becoming loose or erratic. The compunds are soft and when carrying so much speed into the corners is going to cause wear.


Driving style will play a role too. If you drive hard and deep into the corners you are putting more stress on those front tires. They are going wear.

Just curious to see if anyone has tried using Todd's setup (with spool diff) with a centre oneway????

I was thinking of trying it this weekend (as I can't use my oneway diff atm).
