I use the shorty pack on a track that varies from low to medium high traction, mildly technical, and the most I use is 2500 mah or so. Lots of power, little loss of performance over the 8 minutes.

Default Tire glue

What is everyone using for glue to do the sidewalks?

The glue I have used cracks the foam

Thanks Greg G

Interesting tire choice... Did you try Black or Chrome/Grey&Black fronts as well? If so, how did the straight Greys compare?

A light coat of thin CA. I think it should like like matte black foam if its right. if its thick and shiny you overdid it and it will crack.

I slightly bevel my sidewalls a couple of degrees so the foam wont hit the barriers in a crash, CA the sidewall then true the tire to size and round the edges. I end up with a 1mm band of CA'd foam next to the rim.

Coming off the track with very little left in the battery I was seeing some fall off in power in 13.5. Plus with the full sized pack it will be easier to make minimum weight.

A few guys at my track have those. They all say they are great. A couple of them say they are the best packs they own. Note that they have not been submitter to ROAR and are not legal if you race at a ROAR track or at events that follow ROAR rules.

Sorry been bust at work as for glue I have always used losi blue it just seems to be the best for this it stays on top of foam until it hardens

As for tires I ran every combo I could think of pink/d-pink white d- pink white /black white dual fronts white/grey rears and different fronts and I found traction staringe this year my "rubber based" tires would start off pushy loose then get a ton of front bite so I went to "foam" base tires and it was better just needed to find the right steering blacks were good after three laps but very "twitchie" up front dual fronts were really good but I only had two pair so I tryed Grays with safety glue on edge and from first lap till end traction was good
