No foam tires a not used at the big out door races in fact I don't think they are allowed by roar or ifmar rules. RUBBER RULES!

Thank you all for the info on the rubber and foam tire question. I've never ran rubber tires before when I've raced and would like to see how they do. Currently, I'm running 37 shore in the front and 40 shore in the rear. What rubber tires and inserts would be comparable to use, instead of these foam ones? Thanks

I have the Pivot Mount & Shim Set ( LOSA9668 ) in stock, $10.99 + tax and shipping. This includes the 1 degree, 0, and 2.

For outdoor racing I would say the Sorex 36R with Xenon Gray inserts. That is what I have been running lately. However you may want to check with the track to see if you can use rubber tires during racing. Personally I think foam would be better on asphalt.

I run mine with 5 degree of timing with a final drive ratio of 9.00 with the 8x1. The motor rips and is easy on the comm but you gotta be careful with those xxx brushes. They drop off 100% without any warning. the brush will still look good but the motor will come to a slow crawl then it will just stop.

Thank you Todd for your input. Also, about how quickly do those tires wear? Thanks

No...this has been the case with all of mine and all of Dujuan's cobalt cans. You can cut the comm and still nothing. Change the brushes and you have a new motor again. We have been getting about 5 hard runs then they start to drop off. This is just what we have experienced with the four cobalts we have between us. I plan on using the reedy 777 brush in my next phase of testing. It has been killer in my Ti can motors so we'll see what happens on the cobalt.


harsh- Let's keep it PG....LOL
