i'm just like taking abuse i'm not super fast nor do I have the affiliations anymore - i just can drive the 17.5 better then a boost mod car not that it wouldn't have been fun - just rather not be fixing it each round like I did with my boosted 13.5 12th scale

Just a question for you 12thscale guys , what is the most commen tire compound and brand used on this track ? Also what is a good starting rollout , and any other tips I'm coming from Canada so I want to come prepared for this , first time running outdoors with a 12th scale so all the tips would be awesome

Thanks

double pink fronts & pink rears is a 'safe' bet. if your car is pushing you can probably just add compound on the fronts to gain more steering. people have been running either BSR Racing or Jaco 1/12th foam tires.

also note -- depending upon how your car is handling, you might run through fronts quicker than rears -- or the opposite. realistically we are only getting 2-3 8m runs from a set of tires depending upon what ride height you start with

1/12 is the only class that will have a pass on the details. All other classes with need to be in compliance.

You'll want to at least be at 4mm. U could easily go up to 5mm or higher. Depending upon your motor and it's timing roll outs could even be larger than 100mm.

Last time I asked Sharpe he was putting together an official rule set, but as far as I know, yes, yes and no. I'm not sure if an FDR limit will be in place or not.

We had a 12th scale race this weekend. It was very successful for all involved except Hanulec.

Cars handle very good when traction is good.
