carl,


what about a black front tire... and yellow rear... I was always under the impression that was the purpose of the blacks... so the stay consistant, dont gum up and pick up traction....

or like Mike said with the pinks and mag... could also try mag front (32) and pink rear (30)

I will likely try magenta / magenta next time I get a chance to get to the track. Good advice with the black. I have a few sets of jaco's left so I'm waiting for Josh to release his new rims before ordering new tires. Hopefully the rim rims and hubs from CEFX will be released soon.

I don't think you were loosing grip on the rear with the Yellow.
The Yellow family of tires which are a synthetic compound, are very consistent, and don't heat up much during a run.

The Lilacs are of the Pink/Higher rubber content family of tires, and will heat up, it's my opinion that as the lilacs heated up, they gained grip and over-powered the more consistent yellow rear tires.
So you started with a decent balance on cold tires, and lost balance once the front gained grip.

There are surfaces where the Pink family of tires will work with Synthetic rears, with a good balance for 8 mins.

For most cars, Magenta Fr & Rr, or Black Fr & Yellow Rr will always work, usually it's just a matter of finding which works best on your surface.

While waiting for the Evo 2011 to ship, I came up with the setup as a base for carpet. This is just a starting point and would appreciate any input. Also attached the blank setup sheet.

Yes and no. My car was the original but came with the convo so I rebuilt it with the new stuff as soon as I got it. So yes, I have the original but I have never run it.

What servo mounts are people using on their Griffin? I tried the associated, but they don't fit behind the front suspension.

The ones Khador12 linked are the ones I used as well. To be honest with you I had the servo mounts for 2 years and hadn't used them until this new build for the 2011 spec update. Shoe Goo'ing the servo to the chassis works great. Just use a clamp to make sure it doesn't move while it dries.

Thanks. Wish I knew that when I ordered my conversion .... I now am stuck waiting for servo mounts. Could go back to the old school method of using servo tape for the purpose for which it was named...
