Hi Hiro,

I thought that paint scheme in your avatar looked familiar

I'll see you Saturday, and if you like, I'll bring some tires and you can try again

Tested with them tonight on carpet, tons of steering. Had to get rid of all of it to make the car consistent to drive. I will test some more with them this friday for the weekend.

Default One thing to keep in mind...

Different tires require different setups to optimize them. In FL we all ran Pro-line S3's with super stiff Picco springs and 80wt oil. Then we started running Yokomo 138G's with 20lb springs and 50wt. Then Sorex a little softer and finally for the last 3 years everyone in FL runs CS27GL's with really soft setups.

Every tire required changes in setup to make the most of them. Everyone that has test the RP tires says they have more steering than Sorex...sometimes too much. This is a good problem as getting rid of excess steering is way easier than trying to get more. Change your dual rates and suspension settings and I think you will find faster lap times.

Hi Hiro,

Sure no problem, I'll give you one of my sets to try. I'm going to work on the RP Pre-mount versions of the tire this Saturday and see how they are compare to the ones I glue up.

You should step up to pro stock I've seen you drive, and I think you definitely can run with the pro-stock guys. You won't ruin our race, in fact I think a few of us might have a hard time keeping up with you Join us!

Hi James,

How's it going? Hope you had a good holiday Just out of curiousity, did you try them brand new? Maybe you can try scuffing them in a bit on like a tire sander? I heard they work very well on carpet (RP30 and RP24) Please keep us posted

Say hi to Matt for me!

Good points Adrian. I also found that each tire will require a slightly different method of prepping and saucing. But I do believe the RP once you get them going, they are very competitive

James, what tires and inserts were you running? Aaron and Noah have been running 30/24 premount and I ran 30/24 with Sorex firm A inserts. All of them worked very well. We were all able to run the same times or faster than with Sorex 28/24 with firm A inserts.

Adrian, just ask steve how long i worked on my 415 to get steering at socal. then he gave me the RPs... and wala! the car had too much.

as for saucing, it can really affect the performance of the tire. esp at socal.

btw Steve, the original set of 36s you had me prototype felt exactly the same as the premounted 36s i use now. the only difference was the way we sauced them. it all varies with the car set up/ driver, but definitely 1 min then wipe. i do 5 mins then wipe. but thats because of my set up.

I ran premounts too. How stiff did you have to change your setup? I've got a lot of stuff to try on friday with them. Bring your tire sander cause I got a bunch of them.

I didn't change my setup at all. The car had a slight push with Sorex's and with the RP's it was good. Put some glue on the sidewalls of the fronts and that will help smooth out the steering a little and keep you from tractio rolling when the bite comes up.

you worked on that 415 for a looooong time.

I will try out the pre-mounts this Saturday, and when I finally wear them down, I'm gonna cut it open just to double check on the inserts.

rto.. its a pretty popular charger in japan. it charges in three different stages. for example for the first 1000mah it'll charge at 3amps, then from 1000-2400mah it'll charage at 5amps.. then from 2400 up to when it peaks it can charge at 7amps.

ive seen it in action. my practice packs that charge only up to 2900, charged up to 3700 on one of these chargers and performance was the same. imagine what i can do to a race pack.

btw.. this is the RP Tires thread... have you tried the tires yet?
