For racing rubber tires on carpet the Chassi is just right.

Try the kit setup, should work pretty good.

I ran mine on carpet using the kit setup, with a spool and was fairly good, some slight alterations here and there but nothing drastic.

I've got the rayspeed driveshafts on one of my cars and the Tir ones on the other and find the Tir ones better, for one you don't have to file the rib off the wheel hub, they fit the car better. And the rayspeed fronts I cannot use with the Tir spool as they're not long enough.

I have now ordered sum new wheel hubs to fit the second car with Tir ones.

What tyres do you use for carpet? Rubber tyres that is, not foams.

Yes, but only on the sides that contact the slots, the stock Yokomo bones fit like a glove .

So Matt, what a HIGH BITE asphalt track? I run on one; do you feel I can use the 3.0mm chassis and topdeck with some success?

I was running the CGM then went to the BD. Even with the stock chassis the BD was much faster than the CGM on carpet.

The person that cut my thick chassis said that a couple of guys ran the thick chassis at the Reedy race; as you know that was asphalt.

Chad, were you still looking for RaySpeed CVD front axles? I have a new set of them here as spare. I think they cost me $14. Just the axles. No bones or pins or nothing...
