Excited to receive my first 1/12 scale pan(XTI WC). Not excited to find missing thread on one side of steering linkage. Really?

Man that sucks but it happens. Pick up some Lunsford titaniums.

When you are preparing your CRC Carpet Knife for a race... is that sharpening?

Most definitely! Honing is a process for forming round features in a material.

Not when talking about a blade. Honing a blade is the fine sharpening of a blade as opposed to the initial rough or quick sharpening.

Well, I think what I'm busy with at the moment is the rough sharpening, trying to get my prep for the Mile High in before the day I was supposed to leave.

I have a good feeling about this race, I think I've found the way my cars want to run if I'm on Ozite and SXT 3, much better than the IIC and that was on blacks and yellows. Anybody sees the car they wonder how it drives at all, it's so soft.

That should be good for high bite conditions.

The front is pretty standard but the rear is the softest springs I could find with thick goo in the side dampers. I even ran a practice with no rear side springs at all in my attempt to keep the rear pod flat on the ground in corners instead of diffing out, but I eventually settled on an ancient 8-pound center spring that dates to the T-bar days and AE 3-pounders for side springs.

If you're diffing out, stiffer front springs can help. Also try lighter on the tubes.

To be honest I was probably trying to run tires that were a little too big for the grip. I only had one good set and I needed them to last a practice run, two qualifiers, and the main, but when they trued themselves down the car was stuck like superglue. I wish I had run that setup and tire combo in Vegas, it would have easily been a lap faster than I was on yellow/black.

The car ran best with .55's on the front and a full sauce on the front tires, .50's and less sauce didn't hold the corner speed.

Sounds good then. .55s are what I almost always run on high bite. I'll even go .60 for stupid high bite. .50s for old wore out low bite tracks.
